Library of Congress Summary

The summary below was written by the Congressional Research Service, which is a nonpartisan division of the Library of Congress.

Legislative Line Item Veto Act of 1993 - Grants the President legislative line item veto rescission authority.
Authorizes the President to rescind all or part of any budget authority if the President determines that such rescission:
(1) would help balance the Federal budget, reduce the Federal budget deficit, or reduce the public debt;
(2) will not impair any essential Government functions;
(3) will not harm the national interest; and
(4) will directly contribute to the purpose of this Act of limiting discretionary spending in FY 1994 or 1995.
Requires the President to notify the Congress of such a rescission by special message after enactment of appropriations legislation for FY 1994 or 1995.
Makes such a rescission effective unless the Congress enacts a rescission disapproval bill.
(1) information to be included in the President's message; and
(2) procedures to govern consideration of rescission disapproval legislation in the Senate and the House of Representatives.

House Republican Conference Summary

The summary below was written by the House Republican Conference, which is the caucus of Republicans in the House of Representatives.

No summary available.

House Democratic Caucus Summary

The House Democratic Caucus does not provide summaries of bills.

So, yes, we display the House Republican Conference’s summaries when available even if we do not have a Democratic summary available. That’s because we feel it is better to give you as much information as possible, even if we cannot provide every viewpoint.

We’ll be looking for a source of summaries from the other side in the meanwhile.
