Companion Bill — Passed House (Senate next)
This activity took place on a related bill, H.Con.Res. 271 (106th), possibly in lieu of similar activity on S.Con.Res. 97 (106th).
S.Con.Res. 97 (106th) was a concurrent resolution in the United States Congress.
A concurrent resolution is often used for matters that affect the rules of Congress or to express the sentiment of Congress. It must be agreed to by both the House and Senate in identical form but is not signed by the President and does not carry the force of law.
This concurrent resolution was introduced in the 106th Congress, which met from Jan 6, 1999 to Dec 15, 2000. Legislation not enacted by the end of a Congress is cleared from the books.
