Bill summary

Blank bill; requires that the 2016 Congressional primary election be conducted as provided in the act without setting out those requirements. 

Applies to the 2016 primary cycle for the US House of Representatives unless the US Supreme Court reverses or stays the decision of the US District Court for the Middle District of North Carolina holding unconstitutional GS 163-201(a) as it existed before the enactment of this act (or the decision is otherwise enjoined, made inoperable, or ineffective), in which case Section 2 of SL 2015-258 (which set the primary date as March 15, 2016) is again effective.
