Definitions of EXPUNGING RESOLUTION
Sort: Oldest first
In 1834 a resolution of censure had been adopted by Congress against President Jackson for removing certain money deposits from the Bank of the United States. This resolution was expunged by the "Expunging Resolution " of January 16, 1837, Senator Benton being the prime mover toward its adoption. Clay, Webster and Calhoun opposed it with vehemence. A black line was drawn in the Journal around the resolution of censure, and the words " Expunged by order of the Senate this sixteenth day of January, 1837," inserted.
