A concurrent resolution is often used for matters that affect the rules of Congress or to express the sentiment of Congress. It must be agreed to by both the House and Senate in identical form but is not signed by the president and does not carry the force of law.

Expresses the sense of Congress that: (1) prescription drug accessibility is crucial to the well-being of senior citizens; (2) prescription drug costs should not prohibit seniors from taking the vital steps necessary to maintain their health; (3) extending prescription drug benefits to seniors should not require the creation of extensive new bureaucracies, regulations, or price controls; and (4) Congress should pursue legislative measures to address this matter as soon as possible.

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.
