Can an issue passed by vote be revisited and opened for discussion and a new vote?

Yes, but not just in the sense of starting over again and voting on it from scratch. The motion to rescind, or amend something previously adopted (mentioned by several of the previous posters) has a higher voting requirement -- two-thirds without notice OR majority with notice OR majority of the entire membership. This helps prevent the situation where the assembly passes something by a fairly close vote, and then decides to 'revisit' the issue at the next meeting (perhaps with a slightly different subset of members attending) and defeats the motion by a fairly close vote... and then perhaps flip-flops again at a third meeting... and so on and so forth.
