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.

Allows any fire department with a service area that comprises all territory, population, and housing units in rural areas or outside a city or town with a population of less than 20,000 people to apply for a federal grant for which it would otherwise be eligible regardless of whether it has completed the National Incident Management System (NIMS) training.
Requires any such department that receives a grant to complete such training by the end of the period covered by the grant award. Allows the department to claim the cost of such training as an allowable cost under the grant.

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.
