Concurrent Resolution

A concurrent resolution is a measure passed by both legislature chambers to ex­press facts, principles, opinions, wishes and purposes of the legislature. Concurrent resolu­tions are also used to memorialize the president, congress, cabinet members or federal agencies on a certain course of action. A concurrent resolution does not, with rare exceptions, have the force and effect of law and does not require action by the Governor. Concurrent resolutions may be adopted without a formal roll call vote [Adapted from Oklahoma State Senate Legislative Terms]

A typical example of a concurrent resolution, from the 2023 legislative session, was HCR 1008 designating the month of May as Prader-Willi Syndrome Awareness Month.
