Restricts issuance of such coins to calendar year 2013.
Subjects coin sales to a surcharge of $10 per coin.

Provides for examination by the Comptroller General of books, records, documents, and other data of the Girl Scouts as may be related to the expenditures of the amounts paid.

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.
