GovTrack’s Bill Summary

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.

Authorizes the Administrator of Veterans' Affairs to provide that: (1) nurses employed at a Veterans Administration facility who work two regularly scheduled 12-hour tours of duty within a weekend shall be considered to have worked a full workweek and be paid as specified; or (2) such nurses who work on a tour of duty any part of which falls on a weekend may be paid additional pay (not to exceed 25 percent of the hourly rate).

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.
