suspending order of business

Guest Jerry-Mac Johnston

Recommended Posts

may a member make a 'new business' motion before the call for new business? and if so what is the procedure for that?

There are a couple of ways to do it.

-Suspend the Rules to take up the motion out of its proper order. This requires a 2/3 vote.

-Lay on the Table every motion, in succession, until you get to New Business. This only requires a majority vote, but it has the downside that there will be a lot of votes instead of just one, and you'll have a big mess of motions to Take from the Table when you're done.

So unless the member feels it's really important to consider this motion right away and believes a lot of other members feel likewise, he's probably better off just waiting for New Business.
