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.

1/3/2012--Public Law.
Risk-Based Security Screening for Members of the Armed Forces Act - Directs the Assistant Secretary of Homeland Security (Transportation Security Administration [TSA]) to develop and implement a plan for expedited security screening services for a uniformed Armed Forces member, and, to the extent possible, accompanying family, if the member, while in uniform, presents documentation indicating official orders for air transportation departing from a primary airport.
Requires the Assistant Secretary to consider certain protocols in developing the plan.
Declares that nothing in this Act shall affect the Assistant Secretary's authority to require additional screening of an Armed Forces member if intelligence or law enforcement information indicates that it is necessary.

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.
