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 bill was passed in a vote in the Senate. It goes to the House next. The vote was by Unanimous Consent so no record of individual votes was made.
The bill was passed by both chambers in identical form. It goes to the President next who may sign or veto the bill.
Enacted — Signed by the President
The President signed the bill and it became law.
This is a Senate bill in the United States Congress (indicated by the “S.” in “S. 3874”). A bill must be passed by both the House and Senate in identical form and then be signed by the President to become law.
