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 concurrent resolution was passed by both chambers in identical form. A concurrent resolution is not signed by the president and does not carry the force of law. The vote was by Voice Vote so no record of individual votes was made.
Updated bill text was published as of Passed Congress/Enrolled Bill.
