H.Res. stands for House simple resolution.

A simple resolution is used for matters that affect just one chamber of Congress, often to change the rules of the chamber to set the manner of debate for a related bill. It must be agreed to in the chamber in which it was introduced. It is not voted on in the other chamber and does not have the force of law.

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

Sets forth the rule for the consideration of H.R. 3136 (social security earnings limit, line item veto, regulatory analysis, and public debt increase). Provides that if, before March 30, 1996, the House of Representatives receives a message that the Senate has adopted the conference report for S. 4 (line item veto): (1) the Clerk of the House, in the enrollment of H.R. 3136, shall strike title II (line item veto); and (2) the House shall be considered to have adopted that conference report.

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.
