GovTrack’s Bill Summary

We don’t have a summary available yet.

Library of Congress Summary

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


5/24/2010--Public Law.
Requires, in order to not be disposed of by the U.S. Postal Service, any mailing soliciting the purchase of a product or service or soliciting information or the contribution of funds or membership fees that has the word "census" visible through the envelope, or outside cover or wrapper, to include: (1) the accurate name and return address of the entity sending the mailing; and (2) a notice that the mailing is not affiliated with the federal government.

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.
