The Call for a non-emergency meeting shall include the text of any legislation to be modified and a statement of the purpose of the proposal and its effect on existing legislation. Items of business deemed non-controversial by the Chair of the Division may be placed on a Consent Calendar under Special Orders in the Call. A single unanimous vote suffices for approval of all business on the Consent Calendar. At the request of any member of the Division, any Calendar item must be deferred until consideration of new business. The Call for a special or emergency meeting shall contain a statement of the purpose of the meeting.
Action on Items Not in the Call.
Approval of three-fourths of the voting members present at a meeting of the Division or its Faculty Legislature is required for final action to be taken on any non-legislative item of business not included in the Call for the meeting. No such action is authorized for legislation not included in the Call.
Within fifteen days after each meeting of the Division or its Faculty Legislature, the Vice Chair/Secretary of the Division shall send at least one copy of the Minutes of the meeting to the President of the Senate, every member of the Division, the executive offices of the other Divisions, the Secretaries of the Senate, and each member of the Senate Committee on Rules and Jurisdiction.
