Amends provisions of the Intelligence Reform and Terrorism Prevention Act of 2004 relating to the implementation of a mutual aid agreement for the National Capital Region in the event of a regional or national emergency to:
(1) remove the requirement that agents and volunteers acting on behalf of a regional organization or entity be committed (listed) in a mutual aid agreement in order to prepare for or respond to such an emergency; and
(2) expand the list of organizations or entities authorized to enter into and be covered by such an agreement to include any governmental agency, authority, or institution within the Region.

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.
