Supporting Home Owner Rights Enforcement Act - Amends the Federal Power Act to direct the Federal Energy Regulatory Commission (FERC), when deciding whether to issue a hydropower project license, to give equal consideration to private landownership by any nonlicensee and private use of land.

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.
