This resolution was introduced in a previous session of Congress and was passed by the Senate on November 15, 1973 but was never passed by the House.
Senator from Vermont
This is the first step in the legislative process.
Reported by Committee
A committee has issued a report to the full chamber recommending that the bill be considered further. Only about 1 in 4 bills are reported out of committee.
The resolution was passed in a vote in the Senate. It goes to the House next.
This is a Senate joint resolution in the United States Congress (indicated by the “S.J.Res.” in “S.J.Res. 168”). 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.
The committee chair determines whether a resolution will move past the committee stage.
There have been no roll call votes related to this resolution.
