Unanimous Consent


Recommended Posts

Is it proper for a member to move an issue or issues be approved by unanimous consent? That is, as opposed to the chair initiating it? I'm looking for a refernce, and everything I come across says 'the chair may..."

A member may certainly make a unanimous consent request--and often does. Instead of saying, "Mr. President, I move that...", the member may say, "Mr. President, I ask unanimous consent that...". I, too, don't find a good example where I would expect one, in pp. 51-53.
