H.J.Res. 56 (104th) was a joint resolution in the United States Congress.
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.
Resolutions numbers restart every two years. That means there are other resolutions with the number H.J.Res. 56. This is the one from the 104th Congress.
This joint resolution was introduced in the 104th Congress, which met from Jan 4, 1995 to Oct 4, 1996. Legislation not passed by the end of a Congress is cleared from the books.
