9/25/2008--Introduced.
National Commission on Financial Collapse and Recovery Act of 2008 - Establishes in the legislative branch the National Commission on the Financial Collapse and Recovery of 2008 to study and report to the President and Congress on the facts, circumstances, and causes relating to the collapse of the financial markets and financial institutions that occurred during 2008, along with recommendations for corrective measures to prevent such failures in the future.

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.
