The summary below was written by the Congressional Research Service, which is a nonpartisan division of the Library of Congress.
The summary below was written by the House Republican Conference, which is the caucus of Republicans in the House of Representatives.
This summary can be found at http://www.gop.gov/bill/112/1/hr886.
The United States Marshals, the first Federal law enforcement officers in America, were established during the First Session of the U.S. Congress, and signed into law by the First President of the United States, George Washington. The coin will be the first commemorative coin to honor the United States Marshals Service.
H.R. 886 would require the Secretary of the Treasury, in commemoration of the 225th anniversary of the establishment of the United States Marshals Service, to mint and issue a $5 gold coin, $1 silver coin, and a half-dollar clad coin emblematic of the 225 years of exemplary and unparalleled achievements of the U.S. Marshals Service.
The bill would also require all such coin sales to include a surcharge of $35 per $5 coin, a $10 surcharge per $1 coin, and a $3 surcharge per half-dollar coin. It would require distribution of the first $5 million to the U.S. Marshals Service National Museum for the preservation, maintenance, and display of artifacts and documents of the U.S. Marshals Service. In addition, the bill would require distribution of one-third of the remainder each to the National Center for Missing and Exploited Children, the National Law Enforcement Officers Memorial Fund in support of the National Law Enforcement Museum and the National Law Enforcement Officers Memorial, and to the Federal Law Enforcement Officers Association Foundation.
Lastly, the bill would authorize the Secretary to strike and sell bronze duplicates of the $5 gold coins.

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.
