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

Amends the Federal criminal code to establish penalties for committing or attempting to commit torture outside the United States. Grants jurisdiction over such activity if the alleged offender is: (1) a U.S. national; or (2) present in the United States.

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.
