116th Congress (2019–2021)
Failed Cloture on Mar 26, 2019
This resolution is provisionally dead due to a failed vote for cloture on March 26, 2019. Cloture is required to move past a Senate filibuster or the threat of a filibuster and takes a 3/5ths vote. In practice, most bills must pass cloture to move forward in the Senate.
What legislators are saying
S.J.Res. 8 is a joint resolution in the United States Congress.
A joint resolution is often used in the same manner as a bill. If passed by both the House and Senate in identical form and signed by the President, it becomes a law. Joint resolutions are also used to propose amendments to the Constitution.
Resolutions numbers restart every two years. That means there are other resolutions with the number S.J.Res. 8. This is the one from the 116th Congress.
