Accountability of Tax Dollars Act of 2000 - Requires any executive agency that is not otherwise required to submit annual audited financial statements (currently, only specified departments and agencies are so required) to submit such statements to Congress and the Director of the Office of Management and Budget (currently, only to the Director). Exempts such an agency from preparing such a statement for any fiscal year for which the total amount of budget authority available to the agency is less than $25 million.

House Republican Conference Summary

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.
