H.Res. stands for House simple resolution.

A simple resolution is used for matters that affect just one chamber of Congress, often to change the rules of the chamber to set the manner of debate for a related bill. It must be agreed to in the chamber in which it was introduced. It is not voted on in the other chamber and does not have the force of law.

The resolution’s title was written by its sponsor.

Commends efforts to promote and enhance public safety and consumer awareness on the proper bonding of yellow corrugated stainless steel tubing (CSST), as defined in the National Fire Protection Association Code, namely that CSST should be permanently bonded to the electrical grounding system in the structure.
Urges state authorities having jurisdiction over building and housing construction and inspections to include requirements within their rules, regulations, and codes for proper bonding of yellow CSST gas piping in accordance with specified national fuel gas and electric and local codes.
Encourages further education efforts of the public, relevant building and housing officials, homeowners, and construction professionals on the need to properly bond yellow CSST retroactively in structures already containing CSST.

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.
