148th Draft Consent Agenda
The filing of a consent agenda before a legislative body is the practice of combining routine business and reports that require action into a single agenda item as a time-saving measure. All the business on a consent agenda is then approved in one action rather than taking the time to file them separately.
It is important to note that any clergy or lay delegate may request that an item be moved off the consent agenda and placed back on to the main agenda.
