Bills and resolutions are referred to committees which debate the bill before possibly sending it on to the whole chamber.
H.Con.Res. 314 (110th) 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.
Resolutions numbers restart every two years. That means there are other resolutions with the number H.Con.Res. 314. This is the one from the 110th Congress.
This concurrent resolution was introduced in the 110th Congress, which met from Jan 4, 2007 to Jan 3, 2009. Legislation not passed by the end of a Congress is cleared from the books.
