Died in a previous Congress

This bill was introduced in a previous session of Congress and though it was passed by both chambers on July 22, 1999 it was passed in non-identical forms and the differences were never resolved.

Although this bill was not enacted, its provisions could have become law by being included in another bill. It is common for legislative text to be introduced concurrently in multiple bills (called companion bills), re-introduced in subsequent sessions of Congress in new bills, or added to larger bills (sometimes called omnibus bills).
