This is a Senate joint resolution in the United States Congress (indicated by the “S.J.Res.” in “S.J.Res. 16”). A joint resolution is often used in the same manner as a bill. If passed by both the House and Senate in identical form and signed by the President, it becomes a law. Joint resolutions are also used to propose amendments to the Constitution.
