GovTrack’s Bill Summary

We don’t have a summary available yet.

Library of Congress Summary

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

Reduces the amount required to be transferred from funds to a State for the National Highway System and for congestion mitigation, air quality, and surface transportation programs to funds for highway safety programs if the State has a safety belt use law in effect. (Currently, a State is penalized by having a certain percentage of funds transferred from such programs to highway safety programs if the State does not have motorcycle helmet and safety belt use laws in effect.)

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.
