Sons and Daughters of America Act - Limits the remedies of an injured party in a civil action for deprivation of rights to injunctive and declaratory relief where the deprivation is a deprivation of the right to freedom of speech secured by the Constitution and is under the authority of a statute, ordinance, regulation, custom, or usage which prohibits or restricts picketing, protesting, or demonstrating at, or in proximity to, a funeral or any other ceremony, procession, or memorial service held in connection with the burial or cremation of the dead.

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.
