H.Res. stands for House simple resolution.

A simple resolution is used for matters that affect just one chamber of Congress, often to change the rules of the chamber to set the manner of debate for a related bill. 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 resolution’s title was written by its sponsor.

GovTrack’s Bill Summary

We don’t have a summary available yet.

Library of Congress Summary

The summary below was written by the Congressional Research Service, which is a nonpartisan division of the Library of Congress.

Denounces the abstention by the United States from voting on Resolution 1322 (which condemns Israel for acts of violence and cites excessive force by Israelis against Palestinians and which was adopted by the United Nations (UN) Security Council on October 7, 2000).
Calls upon the President to declare such resolution null and void as a matter of national policy.
Condemns the UN Security Council for its one-sided condemnation of Israel.Urges:
(1) the UN member states to vigorously oppose efforts to manipulate the Fourth Geneva Convention for the sole purpose of attacking Israel; and
(2) Israeli and Palestinian leaders to seek a secure future for all citizens of the Middle East through a full and thorough peace process.

House Republican Conference Summary

The summary below was written by the House Republican Conference, which is the caucus of Republicans in the House of Representatives.

No summary available.

House Democratic Caucus Summary

The House Democratic Caucus does not provide summaries of bills.

So, yes, we display the House Republican Conference’s summaries when available even if we do not have a Democratic summary available. That’s because we feel it is better to give you as much information as possible, even if we cannot provide every viewpoint.

We’ll be looking for a source of summaries from the other side in the meanwhile.
