What is the main difference between a bill and a resolution? 1) A resolution is just another name for a bill. 2) A resolution deals only with issues affecting local government, while a bill deals with the entire state. 3) All bills require the signature of the governor, but no resolution does. 4) Unlike a bill, a resolution, if passed, lacks the force of a public law. 5) A resolution must be passed unanimously; a bill only needs a majority.
