Offshoring Notification Act - Amends the Worker Adjustment and Retraining Notification Act to extend its coverage not only to each of the 50 states and the District of Columbia but also to the Republic of the Marshall Islands, the Federated States of Micronesia, and the Republic of Palau, and each U.S. territory or possession.
Revises the requirement that an employer give 60-day written notice to employees, state dislocated worker units, and local governments before ordering a plant closing or mass layoff.

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.
