The bill was passed by both chambers in identical form. It goes to the President next who may sign or veto the bill. The vote was without objection so no record of individual votes was made.
This is a Senate bill in the United States Congress (indicated by the “S.” in “S. 695”). A bill must be passed by both the House and Senate in identical form and then be signed by the President to become law.
The committee chair determines whether a bill will move past the committee stage.
