Notes

H.J.Res. stands for House joint resolution.

A joint resolution is often used in the same manner as a bill. If passed by both the House and Senate in identical form and signed by the president, it becomes a law. Joint resolutions are also used to propose amendments to the Constitution.

The resolution’s title was written by its sponsor.

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.
