This is the first step in the legislative process.
The resolution was passed in a vote in the Senate. A simple resolution is not voted on in the other chamber and does not have the force of law. The vote was by Unanimous Consent so no record of individual votes was made.

It must be agreed to in the chamber in which it was introduced. It is not voted on in the other chamber and does not have the force of law.
