Common Sense in Compensation Act - Prohibits any discretionary monetary payment to an employee of a federal executive agency during the period beginning on the enactment of this Act and the close of FY2013, or during FY2014 or FY2015, to the extent that such payment would cause the employee's total covered compensation (i.e., basic pay and discretionary monetary payment) to exceed 105% of the total amount of such employees basic pay (before the application of any step-increase).

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.
