GovTrack’s Bill Summary

We don’t have a summary available yet.

Library of Congress Summary

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

4/30/2004--Public Law.
Directs the Administrator of General Services to convey to Fresno County, California, for nominal consideration, the building and site located at 1130 O Street in Fresno, known as the B.F. Sisk Federal Building and United States Courthouse, after the completion of construction of, and the relocation of tenants to, a new Federal courthouse.
Requires that the deed for such conveyance include a covenant that provides for public use of the property and substantial use for the administration of justice. Provides for reversion of the property to the United States if it is not used for such purposes. Extinguishes such reversionary interest after 20 years.

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.
