This is a House joint resolution in the United States Congress (indicated by the “H.J.Res.” in “H.J.Res. 117”). 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.
