CPRR-UPRR Junction Moved from Promontory to Ogden, Utah, 1870

From: S.Younger

On the website it says the act of 1870 set the meeting point of the two railroads and it was signed May 6, 1870.

The last spike was driven May 10, 1869. How did an act a year later set the meeting point? I read in other publications that it was a Joint Resolution that set the meeting point on April 10, 1869. Do you know for sure which it is?
