(1) review the effectiveness of traditional criminal justice approaches in preventing and controlling crime and violence;
(2) convene hearings in various parts of the country;
(3) develop a comprehensive and effective crime control and antiviolence plan that will serve as a blueprint for action in the 1990's and which reaches out beyond the traditional criminal justice community for ideas; and

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.
