Worth noting is the record of the bill:
Title: A joint resolution ensuring that the compensation and other emoluments ...
12/10/2008 Passed/agreed to in Senate: Introduced in the Senate, read twice, considered, read the third time, and passed without amendment by Unanimous Consent.
12/10/2008 Passed/agreed to in House: On passage Passed without objection.
