Senate resolution apologizes for slavery
The Senate unanimously passed S.Res.159, a resolution to apologize for slavery.

The resolution states that it can't be used to make the case for reparations. The House is expected to pass a similar version next week.

Congress has considered, but never has passed, a resolution to apologize to Native people for their treatment by the federal government. The resolution does not authorize money claims.
