Legislative Vehicle 'Junkyard'

Congress sometimes amends legislation to serve as a "legislative vehicle" that allows it to consider a bill on an accelerated timeframe or with fewer procedural barriers. The process involves the removal of the original bill's provisions and their replacement with the new legislative text. This "junkyard" is the home to summaries of the original bills that were removed from legislative vehicles.
