Time Limit on Discussion

Recommended Posts

The most important organization I belong to is going to vote soon on a new Constitution and By-Laws.  A 30 minute time limit has been set for discussion by leadership.  Is this allowed under Robert's Rules of Order?


No, it is not allowed for "leadership" to set a time limit on discussion.


The assembly itself may set such a limit if it wishes. The motion to Limit Debate requires a second, is not debatable, is amendable, and requires a 2/3 vote for adoption.
