The summary below was written by the Congressional Research Service, which is a nonpartisan division of the Library of Congress.
The summary below was written by the House Republican Conference, which is the caucus of Republicans in the House of Representatives.
This summary can be found at http://www.gop.gov/bill/113/1/hr1068.
Over the last century and a half, many laws have been enacted that relate to the National Park System and its management by the National Park Service. All of these laws have been classified under title 16, ‘Conservation’, of the United States Code, but are spread throughout the title rather than being easily referenced in one location. This has made the Code, as it relates to the National Park Service, difficult to use. H.R. 1068 solves this problem by reclassifying all of these laws as a new title of the Code, allowing the laws to be easily found and referenced.
In the 112th Congress, the House passed similar legislation, H.R. 1950, by voice vote on August 1, 2012.
H.R. 1068 organizes all of the laws related to the National Park Service into one title and enacts it as positive law. This new title replaces the former provisions, which are repealed by the bill.
CBO estimates that because H.R. 1068 would make no substantive changes to the law, the bill would have “no impact on the federal budget.”
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.
