GovTrack’s Bill Summary

We don’t have a summary available yet.

Library of Congress Summary

3/29/2012--Introduced.
Prohibits a naval vessel (or any other vessel under the jurisdiction of the Secretary of the Navy) that has its home port in the United States, Guam, or the Commonwealth of the Northern Mariana Islands from being overhauled, repaired, or maintained in a shipyard outside the United States, Guam, or the Commonwealth of the Northern Mariana Islands, except for voyage repairs.
(Under current law, the prohibition does not cover a naval vessel with a home port in the Commonwealth of the Northern Mariana Islands.)

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.
