Companion Bill — Passed House
This activity took place on a related bill, H.Con.Res. 34 (112th), possibly in lieu of similar activity on S.Con.Res. 20 (112th).
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.
This is a Senate concurrent resolution in the United States Congress (indicated by the “S.Con.Res.” in “S.Con.Res. 20”). 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.
The committee chair determines whether a resolution will move past the committee stage.
