This is the first step in the legislative process.
The resolution was passed in a vote in the Senate. A simple resolution is not voted on in the other chamber and does not have the force of law. The vote was by Unanimous Consent so no record of individual votes was made.
This is a Senate simple resolution in the United States Congress (indicated by the “S.Res.” in “S.Res. 185”). A simple resolution is used for matters that affect just one chamber of Congress, often to change the rules of the chamber to set the manner of debate for a related bill. It must be agreed to in the chamber in which it was introduced. It is not voted on in the other chamber and does not have 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.
