3/29/2007--Introduced.
Amends the Merchant Marine Act, 1936 to provide that when the 20 year period during which vessels operating exclusively in specified foreign trade and for which a construction-differential subsidy was received for restricting voyages exclusively to such trade ends, the requirements and restrictions for receipt of such subsidy, including making payments for violating the restriction on engaging in domestic trade also ends.
(Currently, termination of such period does not affect the requirement to make such payments.)

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.
