I Do Not Consent

The Georgia Tech Climbing Club requested funding for the annual Triple Crown Climbing Competition, an event across three states involving dozens of competitors. Representative Kelliann Morrisey moved to pass an amendment, per JFC recommendations, that would give more money for round trip travel by unanimous consent. However, one representative voiced dissent and the motion failed. There was no follow up discussion, and the bill was motioned to be amended again per JFC recommendation. The vote was cast vocally this time from representatives, with all representatives answering in the affirmative.

The Speaker of the House then explained that the reason for unanimous consent was to speed up proceedings, and that if one representative voiced dissent on an amendment, that representative should explain why during follow up discussion. The final bill was passed 46-1-0.
