Defines "qualified member" to mean any member of the uniformed services serving on active duty or any member of the Ready Reserve in any pay status who: (1) is eligible to participate in the Thrift Savings Plan; and (2) provides any information necessary to identify or establish such member's account and to effect such transfer.

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.
