H.Res. 245 (99th) was a simple resolution in the United States Congress.
A simple resolution is used for matters that affect just one chamber of Congress, often to change the rules of the chamber to set the manner of debate for a related bill. It must be agreed to in the chamber in which it was introduced. It is not voted on in the other chamber and does not have the force of law.
Resolutions numbers restart every two years. That means there are other resolutions with the number H.Res. 245. This is the one from the 99th Congress.
This simple resolution was introduced in the 99th Congress, which met from Jan 3, 1985 to Oct 18, 1986. Legislation not passed by the end of a Congress is cleared from the books.
