EXPLANATION OF THE CONSENT CALENDAR
Bills on the Consent Calendar may be considered for final passage by the House on the days designated. Each bill has had two prior readings and has been acted upon by one or more standing committees. Bills are placed on the Consent Calendar by the Committee on Rules and Legislative Administration which considered the bill to be noncontroversial. After the Committee designates the bills, the Chief Clerk's Office must publish the Consent Calendar. Pursuant to the Rules of the House, bills may be stricken from the Consent Calendar and returned to the General Register if five members object to the bill because it is controversial. Amendments may not be offered to bills on the Consent Calendar and each bill is given a third reading prior to its final passage.
