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.


3/5/2013--Introduced.
Declares that any agency action taken by the National Labor Relations Board (NLRB) since January 4, 2012, shall be void unless each NLRB member has been appointed: (1) by and with the advice and consent of the Senate, or (2) by the President to fill a vacancy during a recess of the Senate.
Terminates such requirements upon final disposition of all actions alleging as a material fact the unconstitutionality of the appointment of individuals to the NLRB that are pending before a federal court as of enactment of this Act.
Prohibits the NLRB from taking any agency action until final disposition is made in all such actions.

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.
