Library of Congress Summary

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

5/2/2000--Passed Senate amended.
American Institute in Taiwan Facilities Enhancement Act - Authorizes appropriations to the American Institute in Taiwan (AIT) for plans for acquisition or construction of a new facility and, if necessary, residences or other structures located in close physical proximity to it.
Allows the use of such appropriated funds only if the new facility meets certain requirements applicable to the security of U.S. diplomatic facilities, except those requirements which the Director of AIT certifies to specified congressional committees are not applicable on account of AIT's special status.
Requires the Director, in such instance, to certify that security considerations permit the waiver of such requirements.

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.
