Guest kiltronix Posted July 30, 2014 at 10:24 PM Report Share Posted July 30, 2014 at 10:24 PM A constitutional change, requiring a supermajority, is voted on and appears close. Division is called for and the yeas and nays stand and sit as directed. Still appears close. President declares the yeas have it. Member wants to close the hall and have a teller count. President directs a vote on the teller count and it is defeated by a simple majority. It seems a simple majority should not be able to shut down a teller count on a 2/3 vote required constitutional change! What prevents the prevailing side to shut down a teller count every time? Is this correct according to RROR? Link to comment Share on other sites More sharing options...
