Amends the Atomic Energy Act of 1954 to require a joint congressional resolution of approval for a subsequent arrangement to an agreement for peaceful nuclear cooperation (section 123 agreement).

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.
