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.

United States Fire Administration Reauthorization Act of 2012 - Amends the Federal Fire Prevention and Control Act of 1974 to:
(1) authorize the U.S. Fire Administration (USFA) Administrator to appoint a Deputy Administrator (current law requires the Deputy Administrator to be appointed by the President),
(2) authorize the USFA Administrator to take such steps as the Administrator considers appropriate to educate the public and overcome public indifference as to individual preparedness (as well as to fire and fire prevention), and
(3) authorize appropriations to carry out such Act through FY2017.
Repeals a provision that placed a cap on amounts made available to update the National Fire Incident Reporting System during FY2009-FY2011.

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.
