Renewal of Motion

Recommended Posts

Main motion on the table - member moves to amend and receives a second but the amendment fails - main motion carries without amendment.  Following close of meeting, some members approached about revisiting the motion to amend.  Since it failed, there is no rescind or amend and given the meeting ended and there is no continuing session, it cannot be reconsidered.  Is it possible to renew the motion as new business at an upcoming meeting?  And is there any notice requirement as with rescinding or amending?  Also - the matter of the motion had to do with a budget and that budget does not go into effect until after the date of the upcoming meeting.

You can't revisit the subsidiary motion to amend directly.  That does not preclude you from moving to amend the adopted main motion by including the language that was defeated the first time around.

 

Basically you're getting a second bite of the apple even though the voting threshold is different.  If previous notice is given of the motion to amend something previously adopted it takes a majority vote to adopt, otherwise a 2/3 vote or a vote of a majority of the entire membership is needed if no notice is given.

 

"Renewal of a Motion" is not applicable in this case.
