Unanimous consent request

Any request made in this form ("I ask unanimous consent that...") can be defeated by a single Member objecting to the request. Prior to 1995, some noncontroversial bills in the House were placed on the Consent Calendar (since abolished) and could be considered and quickly passed using this procedure.
