Library of Congress Summary

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


7/15/2011--Introduced.
Repeals the limit (eight) on the number of cooperative arrangements that may be entered into by Army industrial facilities with non-Army entities. Makes such authority permanent (under current law, terminates at the end of FY2014). Revises a report requirement under the National Defense Authorization Act for Fiscal Year 2008 to include an assessment of the effectiveness of the use of such authority and recommendations to improve the ability of each facility to compete for such contracts.
Requires each military industrial facility of the military departments and defense agencies (other than facilities approved for closure or major realignment under the Defense Base Closure and Realignment Act of 1990) to be designated as a Center of Industrial and Technical Excellence in the recognized core competencies of the designee.

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.
