Library of Congress Summary

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

Amends the Small Business Act to include as a HUBZone (historically underutilized business zone) any area in which the President has declared a major disaster as a result of the 2005 Hurricanes Katrina or Rita.
Amends the Small Business Competitive Demonstration Program Act of 1988 to make the Small Business Competitiveness Demonstration Program (to test innovative small business procurement methods and procedures) inapplicable to any contract related to relief or reconstruction from Hurricanes Katrina or Rita.

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.
