This is a House simple resolution in the United States Congress (indicated by the “H.Res.” in “H.Res. 185”).

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.
The committee chair determines whether a resolution will move past the committee stage.
There have been no roll call votes related to this resolution.
