A senator may request unanimous consent on the floor to set aside a specified rule of procedure so as to expedite proceedings. If no Senator objects, the Senate permits the action, but if any one senator objects, the request is rejected. Unanimous consent requests with only immediate effects are routinely granted, but ones affecting the floor schedule, the conditions of considering a bill or other business, or the rights of other senators, are normally not offered, or a floor leader will object to it, until all senators concerned have had an opportunity to inform the leaders that they find it acceptable.

Summary

Missing Children's Assistance Act of 2018

This bill amends the Missing Children's Assistance Act:

  • to revise the definition of "missing child" to mean an individual under 18 years of age whose whereabouts are unknown to the individual's parent (currently, legal custodian),
  • to specify that a parent includes a legal guardian or an individual who functions as a parent (e.g., a grandparent),
  • to revise the functions and duties of the National Center on Missing and Exploited Children (NCMEC), and
  • to require the NCMEC to make publicly available the annual report on missing children and the incidence of attempted child abductions.

The bill reauthorizes through FY2023:

  • programs and activities for missing and exploited children, and
  • audit requirements for grant recipients.
