5/23/1985--Introduced.
Amends the Revised Statutes of the United States to require State inmates who seek to relieve their conditions of imprisonment through a civil action alleging deprivation of their constitutional rights to exhaust all State remedies first. Declares that no such relief shall be granted if the plaintiff received an adverse ruling on the claims presented in a fair State proceeding.

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.
