Reviving a Motion

6 posts in this topic

what is the procedure for reviving a motion that's been tabled?  especially if the motion included 4 amendments but I only want to address 1.

it's likely the motion to lay on the table was misused.  See http://www.robertsrules.com/faq.html#12  and FAQ#13 that immediately follows it.

if more than one meeting (session) has elapsed since it was laid on the table or if your meetings are held less often than a quarterly time interval, it's dead - all of it.  Just make whatever motion you want anew.  If these are bylaw amendments, follow that process to amend them anew.

Guest Shareda, I agree with the response above by Mr. Mervosh.  You might keep in mind, though, that if it is possible to call the motion from the table, it comes back in the form it was in at the time it was laid on the table, complete with all pending amendments.  You can't call up just the original motion and only one of the four amendments.  It's all or nothing.

One wonders what is meant by "the motion included 4 amendments".

Take it from the table, and you'll find out soon enough. 🙂

Q What is the procedure for reviving a motion that's been tabled

Especially if the motion included 4 amendments but I only want to address 1.

According to Robert's Rules of Order, the complementary motion to "Lay on the Table" is "Take from the Table."

See page 300 in RONR 11th edition.

What you do after that is unclear.

I don't know what you mean by "address one". -- Do you mean, debate it? Do you mean, kill it?
