nate in either House during the last THIRTY-FIVE
calendar days of a regular session, unless two-thirds of the members
elected thereto shall so determine by yeas and nays, and in addition the
two Houses by joint and similar rule may further regulate the right to
introduce bills during this period; nor shall any bill become a law until
it be read on three different days of the session in each House, un-
less two-thirds of the members elected to the House where such
bill is pending shall so determine by yeas and nays, and no bill

Each House may adopt by rule a "consent calendar" procedure
permitting bills to be read and voted upon as a single group on
both second and third readings, provided that the members of each
House be afforded reasonable notice of the bills to be placed upon
each "consent calendar." Upon the objection of any member, any
bill in question shall be removed from the "consent calendar."
