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

Amends the Federal Aviation Act of 1958 to establish a minimum one year period with respect to a Presidential suspension of the right of air carriers to engage in transportation to or from countries which are determined to be aiding or abetting aircraft hijackers or with other countries which engage in transportation with such a country.

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.
