Phrasing for Obtaining Recognition

Recommended Posts

On page 381 line 35 -382 line 10 it is explained that a member can be entitled recognition over a member seeking to make a main motion if he or she states their intention. How would one phrase this?

Would they simply a) rise and ask for recognition and then raise a point of order if not recognized, b ) prefix their attempt at recognition with (I rise) or c) State their intention as they rise and ask for recognition or d) another course of action?

RONR says

Quote

[...] another member is entitled to preference in recognition

if he addresses the chair and states that he rises for one of the following purposes:

I assume that it is all done in one grand sweeping gesture.

"Mr. Chairman, I rise to give previous notice."

And the chair ought to immediately give preference to this latter member.

See RONR's example for a Question of Privilege.

Quote

STEPS IN RAISING AND DISPOSING OF A QUESTION OF PRIVILEGE.

In raising a question of privilege, a member rises,

addresses the chair -- without waiting for recognition --

and says,

“I rise to a question of privilege affecting the assembly,” or “ . . . to a question of personal privilege.”

And the chair ought to respond accordingly.

See the example on page 122, line 30 to page 123, line 33.
