S.Res. stands for Senate simple resolution.

A simple resolution is used for matters that affect just one chamber of Congress, often to change the rules of the chamber to set the manner of debate for a related bill. It must be agreed to in the chamber in which it was introduced. It is not voted on in the other chamber and does not have the force of law.

Encourages efforts to celebrate the centennial in the White Mountain National Forest in New Hampshire and Maine, with a focus on the future as well as in commemoration of the past.
Encourages continued collaboration and cooperation among federal, state, and local governments, as well as business, tourism, and conservation interests, to ensure that the many values and benefits that flow from the White Mountain National Forest today to the citizens of New Hampshire and the rest of the United States are recognized and supported in perpetuity.

House Republican Conference Summary

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.
