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.
