Unanimous-Consent Calendar Law and Legal Definition
Unanimous consent calendar is the list of business awaiting a deliberative assembly's vote that is not expected to be substantially opposed. These businesses are therefore scheduled for a vote without debate or for automatic adoption unless a member objects. Such action may be taken when matters are not controversial or are of minor importance to the assembly. This helps to dispose of a great deal of the agenda confronting the assembly quickly and efficiently.
Unanimous consent calendar is also referred to as consent calendar or unanimous-consent agenda.
