A resolution is a document that expresses the will of the House or the Senate (or both, in the case of a concurrent resolution). Resolutions are used to urge state agencies or the Congress to take certain actions; to formally approve certain plans of government agencies; to conduct certain legislative business; or to establish study committees to examine issues. Some resolutions are also offered by members as an expression of congratulations, commemoration, or tribute to an individual or group.
