FULL TEXT: Joe Wilson resolution

The office of House Majority Leader Steny Hoyer (D-Md.) posted the full text of the resolution condemning Rep. Joe Wilson (R-S.C.) to be presented before the House of Representatives.

Resolved, That the House of Representatives disapproves of the behavior of the Representative from South Carolina, Mr. Wilson, during the joint session of Congress held on September 9, 2009.
