GovTrack’s Bill Summary

We don’t have a summary available yet.

Library of Congress Summary

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

Assure Servicemembers Are Paid Act of 2011 or the ASAP Act - Appropriates, during a period of lapsed appropriations, amounts to the Secretary of Defense and the Secretary of Homeland Security (DHS) to allow the Secretaries to continue providing pay and allowances (without interruption) to members of the Armed Forces and civilian employees of the Department of Defense (DOD) and the Coast Guard.
Defines "period of lapsed appropriations" as any period during which appropriations are not available due to the absence of the timely enactment of any Act or joint resolution (including any Act or joint resolution making continuing appropriations) appropriating funds for the payment of the pay and allowances of the Armed Forces and civilian DOD and Coast Guard employees.

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.
