Library of Congress Summary

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

Makes eligible for burial in a national cemetery any member of the reserves, including the Army or Air National Guard, who performed active duty for training and was discharged or released from such duty under conditions other than dishonorable. Applies to such duty the same minimum service requirements applicable to a period of active duty.
Increases from $300 to $500 the Department of Veterans Affairs (VA) payment for funeral expenses of a veteran who: (1) at the time of death was in receipt of veterans' disability compensation or pension, or was a veteran of any war or was discharged or released from active duty for a disability incurred in the line of duty; or (2) dies in a VA hospital, nursing home, or domiciliary care facility.

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.
