The summary below was written by the Congressional Research Service, which is a nonpartisan division of the Library of Congress.
The summary below was written by the House Republican Conference, which is the caucus of Republicans in the House of Representatives.

According to the committee report, H. Rept. 112-271, the Transportation Security Administration (TSA) uses the same screening procedures for all passengers at airport checkpoints. Although TSA has plans to move to a more risk-based method of screening passengers at airport checkpoints in the future, this legislation directs the Transportation Security Administration to screen members of the Armed Forces in uniform on an expedited basis and in a manner that makes sense for the men and women serving our country at home and on the battlefield. The legislation does not contradict existing TSA policy and complements the plans TSA has for risk-based screening protocols.
H.R. 1801 would require the Assistant Secretary of Homeland Security, acting through the Transportation Security Administration (TSA), to implement expedited screening processes at certain airports for uniformed members of the armed forces and accompanying family members. The bill would specify factors for the Assistant Secretary to consider in designing such processes and would require TSA to report to the Congress on their implementation.
The Congressional Budget Office (CBO) estimates that fully funding H.R. 1801 would cost less than $500,000 annually, assuming the availability of appropriated funds. Enacting H.R. 1801 would not affect direct spending or revenues; therefore, pay-as-you-go procedures do not apply.
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.
