Notes

S.Con.Res. stands for Senate concurrent resolution.

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.

The resolution’s title was written by its sponsor.

10/12/2000--Introduced.
Expresses support for:
(1) democratic efforts that respect the human and political rights of all ethnic and religious groups in Afghanistan, including the effort to establish a "Loya Jirgah," or Grand Assembly, process that would lead to the people of Afghanistan determining their own destiny through a democratic process and free and fair elections; and
(2) the continuing efforts of former King Mohammed Zahir Shah and other responsible parties searching for peace to convene a Loya Jirgah to reestablish a representative government in Afghanistan that respects the rights of all ethnic groups, to bring freedom, peace, and stability to Afghanistan, and to end terrorist activities, illicit drug production, and human rights abuses in Afghanistan.

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.
