GovTrack’s Bill Summary

Library of Congress Summary

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

Surface Mining Control and Reclamation Act of 1977 Technical Corrections Act - Amends the Surface Mining Control and Reclamation Act of 1977 to modify procedures governing payments of moneys derived from reclamation fees to certified states and Indian tribes.
Requires that such payments: (1) be distributed as direct transfers of funds rather than in the form of grants; and (2) be made at the same time as specified payments from the Abandoned Mine Reclamation Fund are made available, including without fiscal year limitation.

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.
