Chronology: October 1, 2009
With only 72 cosponsors for H.J. Res. 47 and only 26 cosponsors for S.J. Res. 15, the road to enactment in the 111th Congress looks to be a long one. The House resolution is in the Subcommittee on the Constitution, Civil Rights and Civil Liberties and the Senate resolution is in the Committee on the Judiciary. A simple majority of cosponsors in both chambers is lacking and expectations for hearings are low.
