A vote on the resolution failed in the House. The resolution is now dead.
H.Con.Res. 51 (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.
Resolutions numbers restart every two years. That means there are other resolutions with the number H.Con.Res. 51. This is the one from the 112th Congress.
This concurrent resolution was introduced in the 112th Congress, which met from Jan 5, 2011 to Jan 3, 2013. Legislation not passed by the end of a Congress is cleared from the books.
