motion with an amendment

if there is a motion of the floor that has been moved and 2nd and during discussion a member moves to amend his motion...does the original motion have to be voted on and then the amended motion voted on? or do you just vote on the admended one?

Neither. The amendment is voted on first, and if adopted, the motion is then before the assembly as amended. If the amendment is lost, the motion is before the assembly as it was originally worded. In either event, the motion as it then stands is voted on (after any further debate and amendment).
