Prohibits the Secretary of Defense, in disposing of real property in connection with the closure of the Long Beach Naval Air Station, California, from conveying any portion of such property to a shipping company owned or controlled by a foreign country. Requires the Secretary to prohibit any subsequent reconveyance of such property to such a company.

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.
