This is the first step in the legislative process.
This is a Senate concurrent resolution in the United States Congress (indicated by the “S.Con.Res.” in “S.Con.Res. 47”). 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.
There have been no roll call votes related to this resolution.
