Resolutions numbers restart every two years. That means there are other resolutions with the number H.Con.Res. 82. This is the one from the 106th Congress.

This concurrent resolution was introduced in the 106th Congress, which met from Jan 6, 1999 to Dec 15, 2000. Legislation not passed by the end of a Congress is cleared from the books.
