This is the first step in the legislative process.

H.Res. 557 (100th) was a simple resolution in the United States Congress.

A simple resolution is used for matters that affect just one chamber of Congress, often to change the rules of the chamber to set the manner of debate for a related bill. It must be agreed to in the chamber in which it was introduced. It is not voted on in the other chamber and does not have the force of law.

This simple resolution was introduced in the 100th Congress, which met from Jan 6, 1987 to Oct 22, 1988. Legislation not enacted by the end of a Congress is cleared from the books.
