Motion Amended

This is a bit much to answer in a little box.

Suggest you get a copy of RONRIB - Chapter 5 tells you all about amendments and how you handle them.

(So does RONR, of course, but with a whole lot more detail that a beginner (?) doesn't need)


"Roberts Rules of Order Newly Revised In Brief", Updated Second Edition (Da Capo Press, Perseus Books Group, 2011). It is a splendid summary of all the rules you will really need in all but the most exceptional situations. And only $7.50! You can read it in an evening.

Debate the amendment. After vote, vote on whether the main motion should be amended as proposed.

If that passes, debate returns to the main motion as amended.

If that fails, debate returns to the main motion as it was before the amendment was proposed.

(this process is called perfecting the motion."

After the process of perfecting the motion is completed, you vote on whether to adopt the motion (as amended-if any passed).

A motion is proposed and seconded. An amendment is proposed to the main motion and seconded. what is the porcdeure to put amendmen for voting and if it is passed how do we act on main motion.\

Thanks in advance

See RONR (11th ed.), Section 12... after reading Dr. Stackpole's suggestion of RONR In Brief.
