GovTrack’s Bill Summary

Library of Congress Summary

The summary below was written by the Congressional Research Service, which is a nonpartisan division of the Library of Congress.


1/25/2011--Introduced.
Tough and Smart National Security Act - Expresses the sense of the Senate that Congress should:
ensure that members of the Armed Forces, particularly those serving in Afghanistan and Iraq, and veterans get needed support; work with the President to attack al Qaeda and other terrorist groups with a comprehensive strategy; confront the nuclear threat from Iran and North Korea; enhance U.S. tools for pursuing key national security interests; and reform cybersecurity policy to prevent cyber attacks, protect privacy and civil liberties, and avert and respond to catastrophic cyber incidents.

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.
