To expedite the proceedings of the House, Reference Committees place items on the Consent Calendar that they believe are non-controversial. However, any delegate may remove an item from the Consent Calendar if they believe the item warrants further discussion.
If an item is removed from the Consent Calendar, it will then be brought up in its natural order during the Reference Committee reports. The vote must be unanimous to adopt the Consent Calendar. If passed, all resolutions are adopted as a whole or en bloc. Debate is not allowed on the Consent Calendar beyond simply removing an item from it.
