As CL notes… the vote was passed:

“Washington—Today, the United States House of Representatives passed a resolution introduced by Congressman Tom Suozzi (D–NY-03) and Congressman Peter King (R–NY-02), which calls on the United Kingdom and European Union to protect lasting peace in Northern Ireland during Brexit negotiations. Foreign Affairs Committee Chairman Eliot L. Engel (D–NY-16) cosponsored the resolution and advanced the measure to pass the House.
The resolution, which passed unanimously, calls on the United Kingdom and European Union to make sure that any Brexit deal includes protections for the Good Friday Agreement and the future of Ireland.”

Paul Culloty also notes that it was likely to be passed from the off. Not least, as CL notes because…

This resolution does not need Senate approval nor Trump’s signature. It is not ‘legislation’ as it does not have the force of law.
Still, its good to know that no one in the U.S House of Representatives is opposed to peace in Ireland.
