Suspend the rules to adopt multiple motions at once

36 posts in this topic

How about: I move to suspend the rules and agree to the adoption of the pending main motion as it would read if all pending amendments were adopted.

I think that will work, but I bet it will take the chair a substantial period of time and effort to ensure that the assembly is clear as to exactly what it is being called upon to vote on.  :)

And when they're done voting and the motion to Suspend the Rules is adopted, some nitpicker will probably want to know when the votes will be taken on all the motions that were pending when this incidental motion was introduced. ?

Could you then also move to suspend the rules and agree to the adoption of the pending main motion as it would read if all pending amendments were lost?

I don't see why not.  I imagine , though, that you are hoping to hear it from Mr. Honemann or Gerber. :)

What do you mean by "then"?

Not then as in sequentially, then meaning, by an extension of logic, would it be in order to move to suspend the rules and agree to the adoption of the pending main motion as it would read if all pending amendments were lost?

So then it would seem to me that you can, through the motion to suspend the rules, bring up and vote on the question that is not immediately pending (effectively skipping the immediately pending motion). This seems like a fundamental component of RONR.

In this case, I thought the objective was to decide *all* the pending questions without a direct vote on *any* of them.

By moving for adoption of the pending motion as though all pending motions were lost, it would seem to me as though you are essentially bringing up the question of the main motion before handling any subsidiary motions. In other words, you could invert the motion ladder of precedence.
