Corrections Calendar / Corrections Day Calendar


Corrections Calendar



A June 20, 1995, House Resolution allowed the replacement of the Consent Calendar by a new Corrections Day Calendar. This resolution enabled the house Speaker to invoke the new House Floor Schedule on the second and fourth Tuesday of each month after “consultation” with the Minority Leader. Any legislation considered under the new floor schedule required a 3/5 majority for passage. In addition, only bills reported favorably by a committee would be considered under the new calendar.

In Fall 2003, during the 1st Session of the 108th Congress, the Corrections Calendar Office, which existed in name only, was abolished when Congress enacted the legislative branch appropriations bill (H.R. 2657) for fiscal year 2004. In general, there was a decline in the use of the corrections procedure after its inception in the mid-1990s. Twenty-two bills were considered under Corrections Day procedures during the 104th Congress, but only one corrections measure was taken up in the 107th Congress.

Now obsolete.
