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

Directs the President to designate as a port of entry an airport or seaport that is a military installation closed under any of the defense base closure laws if the local authority under which the airport or seaport operates requests such designation.Authorizes the President to decline to make such a designation if he:
(1) determines that the costs to the United States of conducting operations at a port of entry outweigh the economics benefits to the locality; and
(2) transmits such determination to Congress.

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.
