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.

This joint resolution was introduced in the 97th Congress, which met from Jan 5, 1981 to Dec 23, 1982. Legislation not enacted by the end of a Congress is cleared from the books.
