115th Congress (2017–2019)
This bill was introduced in a previous session of Congress and though it was passed by both chambers on August 1, 2018 it was passed in non-identical forms and the differences were never resolved.

It is common for legislative text to be introduced concurrently in multiple bills (called companion bills), re-introduced in subsequent sessions of Congress in new bills, or added to larger bills (sometimes called omnibus bills).
