4/29/2010--Introduced.
Family and Independent Business Protection Act of 2010 - Amends the National Labor Relations Act to declare that no state or territory may define or classify any person as a state or territorial employee, for purposes of state or territorial employment, labor relations, or collective bargaining laws or regulations, by reason of such person's receipt of or eligibility for any payment or subsidy funded by the United States.

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.
