H.Con.Res. 142 (112th) 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 112th Congress, which met from Jan 5, 2011 to Jan 3, 2013. Legislation not enacted by the end of a Congress is cleared from the books.
