Expedited LNG for American Allies Act of 2013 - Amends the Natural Gas Act to deem consistent with the public interest an expedited application and approval process without modification or delay for the exportation of natural gas to a foreign country that is:
(1) a nation with which there is in effect a free trade agreement requiring national treatment for trade in natural gas (as under existing law);
(2) a member country of the North Atlantic Treaty Organization (NATO);
(3) Japan, as long as the Treaty of Mutual Cooperation and Security between the United States and Japan remains in effect; and
(4) any other foreign country if the Secretary of State determines that such exportation promotes U.S. national security interests.

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.
