H.Res. stands for House simple resolution.

A simple resolution is used for matters that affect just one chamber of Congress, often to change the rules of the chamber to set the manner of debate for a related bill. It must be agreed to in the chamber in which it was introduced. It is not voted on in the other chamber and does not have the force of law.

Requires each Panel member to be treated, for Panel purposes, as though a member of the Committee on Appropriations.
Applies Rule XI (Procedures of Committees and Unfinished Business) to the Select Panel in the same manner as a subcommittee, except that the Select Panel cannot require, by subpoena or otherwise, the attendance and testimony of witnesses or the production of books, records, correspondence, memoranda, papers, and documents.

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.
