Making further continuing appropriations for the fiscal year 1996, and for other purposes.
This is the first step in the legislative process.
The resolution was passed in a vote in the House. It goes to the Senate next. The vote was by voice vote so no record of individual votes was made.
The bill was passed by both chambers in identical form. It goes to the President next who may sign or veto the bill.
Enacted — Signed by the President
The President signed the bill and it became law.
This is a House joint resolution in the United States Congress (indicated by the “H.J.Res.” in “H.J.Res. 170”). 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.
The committee chair determines whether a resolution will move past the committee stage.
