GovTrack’s Bill Summary

We don’t have a summary available yet.

Library of Congress Summary

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


1/18/2013--Introduced.
Firearm Safety and Public Health Research Act of 2013 - Makes prohibitions under the Consolidated Appropriations Act, 2012, against the use of funds to advocate or promote gun control inapplicable to amounts made available by the Continuing Appropriations Resolution, 2013, insofar as such prohibitions relate to any activity to conduct research on firearms safety or gun violence.

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.
