The rise of Senate unanimous consent agreements by Walter J Oleszek( Book )

5 editions published between 2007 and 2008 in English and held by 16 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Unanimous consent agreements are fundamental to the operation of the Senate. The institution frequently dispenses with its formal rules and instead follows negotiated agreements submitted on the floor for lawmakers' unanimous approval. Once entered into, unanimous consent agreements can only be changed by unanimous consent. Their objectives are to waive Senate rules and to expedite floor action on measures or matters. Typically, these accords (sometimes called time-limitation agreements) restrict debate and structure chamber considerations of amendments. Given their importance to chamber operations, it is worthwhile to understand the background, or origin, of unanimous consent agreements. The purpose of this report is to examine how and why these informal agreements became special orders of the Senate enforceable by the presiding officer

Proposals to reform "holds" in the Senate by Walter J Oleszek( )

1 edition published in 2007 in English and held by 0 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"Holds" are an informal senatorial custom unrecognized in Senate rules or precedents. They allow Senators to give notice of their respective party leader that certain measures or matters should not be brought up on the floor. Implicit in the practice is that a Senator will object to taking up a bill or nomination on which he or she has placed a hold. The Senate's majority leader, who exercises primary responsibility for determining the chamber's agenda, traditionally in consultation with the minority leader, is the final arbiter as to whether and for how long he will honor a hold placed by a Member or group of lawmakers

This report explores how new technologies are introduced to Congress; discusses the impact of the Internet on two key centers of institutional power, committees and political parties, and provides a number of summary observations about the internet and congressional governance"--Title page verso
