Amended Motion

Guest Judy Martin

Recommended Posts

A motion has been made and seconded. During discussion, a motion was made to amend the original motion by inserting a phrase. It was seconded. We now have two motions on the floor, both seconded. Where do we go from here?

The amendment is immediately pending. Debate it. Then vote on it. If it receives a majority, the original motion is amended, and debate resumes on the original motion, in its new form. Then, it is put to a vote.

If, instead, the vote on the amendment is lost, debate on the original motion resumes, in its original form.
