Improper motions


Recommended Posts

Just trying to be clear: if a member makes a motion about a matter that is already under consideration by a standing committee of the assembly, is that an improper motion?

If the assembly has referred a motion to a committee, it is not in order for a member of the assembly to make a motion which conflicts with it. He would need to wait until the committee reports or move to discharge the committee from further consideration of the motion.

If a standing committee is working on a matter on its own initiative, however, that doesn't prevent a member in the parent assembly from making a motion on the issue.
