1.23 CONSENT CALENDAR.(a) If a committee or division determines that a bill is not controversial, the committee or division may in its report recommend the bill be placed on the General Register and further recommend that the Committee on Rules and Legislative Administration place the bill on the Consent Calendar. The Chair and Ranking Minority Member may recommend placement on the consent calendar in the committee report.
(b) The Committee on Rules and Legislative Administration may determine that a bill on the General Register is not controversial and place the bill on the Consent Calendar.
A bill on the Consent Calendar may not be amended. After discussion by the House, a bill on the Consent Calendar must immediately be given its third reading and placed upon its passage. But if, before its third reading, five members object to the bill as being controversial, the bill must be stricken from the Consent Calendar and be returned to the General Register.
