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 resolution’s title was written by its sponsor.

Library of Congress Summary

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

5/22/1998--Failed of passage in House.
Waives points of order against the consideration of the conference report on S. 1150 (agricultural research programs), except for those arising under:
(1) rule XXVIII (prohibiting consideration of matter which extends beyond the scope of the conference report) of the Rules of the House of Representatives and predicated on subtitle A of title V of the report (providing funds for food stamps for certain noncitizens); and
(2) provisions of the Congressional Budget Act of 1974 (prohibition on unfunded mandates).
Provides that if a point of order for failure to comply with rule XXVIII is sustained, the conference report shall be considered as rejected and the pending question shall be, without intervention of any point of order, whether the House shall recede from its amendment and agree to an amendment to S. 1150 consisting of the reported text, modified by striking subtitle A of title V.

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.
