Library of Congress Summary

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


3/4/2013--Introduced.
Support Democracy in Egypt Act - Prohibits the U.S. government from allowing the sale, lease, transfer, retransfer, or delivery of F-16 aircraft, M1 tanks, or certain other defense articles or services to Egypt until the President certifies to Congress that Egypt:
(1) is curtailing support for terrorist activities conducted by foreign terrorist organizations;
(2) has adopted policies that promote religious and political freedoms;
(3) is carrying out concerted efforts to enforce access along the Sinai Peninsula, including preventing illegal weapons smuggling between Egypt and Gaza; and
(4) is fully implementing the 1979 Peace Treaty between Egypt and Israel.

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.
