Library of Congress Summary

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

Increased Competition for Consumers Act - Transfers to the Consumer Operated and Oriented Plan (CO-OP) program the unobligated balance of funds transferred under the American Taxpayer Relief Act of 2012 to a fund to provide assistance and oversight to qualified nonprofit health insurance issuers awarded loans or grants pursuant to the Patient Protection and Affordable Care Act (PPACA).
Amends PPACA to appropriate the amount equal to the amount rescinded (unobligated funds for the CO-OP program as of January 2, 2013) under the American Taxpayer Relief Act of 2012 to carry out such program. Removes the time restriction on the award of CO-OP program loans and grants.

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.
