Resolutions numbers restart every two years. That means there are other resolutions with the number H.Con.Res. 280. This is the one from the 103rd Congress.
This concurrent resolution was introduced in the 103rd Congress, which met from Jan 5, 1993 to Dec 1, 1994. Legislation not passed by the end of a Congress is cleared from the books.
