Resolutions numbers restart every two years. That means there are other resolutions with the number S.J.Res. 68. This is the one from the 116th Congress.
This joint resolution was introduced in the 116th Congress, which met from Jan 3, 2019 to Jan 3, 2021. Legislation not enacted by the end of a Congress is cleared from the books.
