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

Amends the Internal Revenue Code to permit the rollover into an individual retirement plan of a partial distribution received by an employee from a tax-qualified deferred compensation plan (present law permits a rollover only of a total distribution).
Specifies that such partial distributions may be transferred only to individual retirement plans.
Denies 10-year averaging and capital gains treatment for subsequent distributions of any undistributed sums.
Provides that partial distributions made to the spouse of an employee after the employee's death shall be eligible for such rollover in the same manner as if the spouse were the employee.

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.
