Library of Congress Summary

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

12/18/2010--Public Law.
(This measure has not been amended since it was passed by the House on July 28, 2010. The summary of that version is repeated here.) Truth in Fur Labeling Act of 2010 - Amends the Fur Products Labeling Act to eliminate the exemption to fur labeling requirements for products containing relatively small amounts of fur.
Exempts from such Act a fur product: (1) the fur of which was obtained from an animal through trapping or hunting; and (2) that is sold by the hunter or trapper in a face to face transaction at a place such as a residence, craft fair, or other location used on a temporary or short term basis where the revenue from the sale is not such person's primary income source.
Directs the Federal Trade Commission (FTC) to publish in the Federal Register notice of, and an opportunity to comment on, a review of the Fur Products Name Guide.
States that budgetary effects of this Act for the purpose of complying with the Statutory Pay-As-You-Go Act of 2010 shall be determined by reference to the latest statement titled "Budgetary Effects of PAYGO Legislation" for this Act submitted for printing in the Congressional Record by the Chairman of the House Budget Committee, provided that such statement has been submitted prior to the vote on passage.

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.
