This is the first step in the legislative process.
Reported by Committee
A committee has issued a report to the full chamber recommending that the bill be considered further. Only about 1 in 4 bills are reported out of committee.
The resolution was passed in a vote in the House. A simple resolution is not voted on in the other chamber and does not have the force of law.
This is a House simple resolution in the United States Congress (indicated by the “H.Res.” in “H.Res. 473”). 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 committee chair determines whether a resolution will move past the committee stage.
