(Currently, no bills listed.)
EXPLANATION OF CONSENT CALENDAR
Bills on the Consent Calendar may be considered for final passage by the Senate today. Each bill has had two prior readings and has been acted upon by one or more standing committees. Each bill has been printed and copies have been placed on members' desks for at least one day. Bills on the Consent Calendar did not appear on General Orders and therefore were not considered by the Committee of the Whole. Bills on the Consent Calendar were placed there bya recommendation of a standing committee which considered the bill to be noncontroversial. Pursuant to the Rules of the Senate, bills may be removed from the Consent Calendar and referred to the Committee of the Whole if three members object to the bill because it is controversial. Each bill is given a Third reading prior to the final roll call.
