(1) purchase or otherwise obtain only uniforms, including accessories (such as ties, belts, shoes, and hats), that meet the standards of the Federal Trade Commission (FTC) for labeling as "Made in USA"; or
(2) make publicly available a detailed justification of the reasons the Committee obtained uniforms that do not meet that requirement.

House Republican Conference Summary

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.
