5/28/1993--Introduced.
Authorizes the President to conclude an agreement with Mexico to establish a binational commission to be known as the United States-Mexico Border Health Commission. Declares that it should be the duty of the Commission to:
(1) conduct a needs assessment in the U.S.-Mexican border area to identify and resolve health problems that affect the general population of the area;
(2) coordinate public and private persons to educate the population about, and resolve, such health problems and develop programs to meet needs that are not being met by such persons; and
(3) formulate recommendations for a fair method by which the government of one country would reimburse a public or private person in the other country for the cost of a health care service furnished to a citizen or resident alien of the first country who is unable to pay for the service.

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.
