Amends the Internal Revenue Code to allow an investment tax credit for rehabilitated buildings if:
(1) 50 percent or more of the existing external walls are retained in place as external walls;
(2) 75 percent or more of the existing external walls are retained in place (but not necessarily as external walls); and
(3) 95 percent of the existing internal structural framework is retained in place.
(Present law requires that 75 percent or more of the external walls must be retained in the rehabilitation process.)

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.
