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.

12/20/2011--Public Law.
(Although this measure has not been amended since it was reported to the House, the text was changed by H. Con. Res. 86, which made enrollment corrections, and the summary has been modified as necessary.)
Civilian Service Recognition Act of 2011 - Authorizes a federal executive agency head to:
(1) give a U.S. flag for an individual who was an agency employee and who died of employment-related injuries suffered as a result of a criminal act, an act of terrorism, a natural disaster, or other circumstance as determined by the President, upon the request of the employee's widow or widower, child, sibling, or parent, or other another individual other than the next of kin as determined by the Director of the Office of Personnel Management (OPM); and
(2) disclose unclassified information that does not endanger national security to show that such employee is eligible to receive a flag.
Requires agency heads to provide appropriate notice to agency employees of the flag benefit provided by this Act.
Defines "employee" for purposes of this Act to include an officer or employee of the U.S. Postal Service (USPS) or the Postal Regulatory Commission.

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.
