Updated bill text was published as of Passed Congress/Enrolled Bill.
This is the first step in the legislative process.
The resolution was passed in a vote in the Senate. It goes to the House next.
The concurrent resolution was passed by both chambers in identical form. A concurrent resolution is not signed by the president and does not carry the force of law. The vote was without objection so no record of individual votes was made.
This is a Senate concurrent resolution in the United States Congress (indicated by the “S.Con.Res.” in “S.Con.Res. 79”). A concurrent resolution is often used for matters that affect the rules of Congress or to express the sentiment of Congress. It must be agreed to by both the House and Senate in identical form but is not signed by the President and does not carry the force of law.
The committee chair determines whether a resolution will move past the committee stage.
