The United States Congress passed a package of five separate bills in an attempt to decrease tensions between the slave states and free states.

Texas was impacted in several ways; mainly, the state surrendered its claim to New Mexico (and other claims north of 36°30′) but retained the Texas Panhandle. The federal government also took over the public debt for Texas.
