Requires the Secretary of the Treasury, before making a first purchase (including a commitment to purchase) under the Small Business Lending Fund Program under the Small Business Jobs and Credit Act of 2010, to certify under oath to the Inspector General of the Department of the Treasury that the purchase-decision process has been designed so that each purchase decision is made solely on the basis of economic fundamentals and not because of any political considerations.

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.
