Subsidiary Motion Applicability

Recommended Posts

Guest ParliPro

Can postpone definitely and commit be applied exclusively to lower subsidiary motions or do they need to be applied to a main as well. In the event that they are applied to a main motion, are any subsidiary motions dissolved?

Thanks!

In the order you asked:

1.a)  No, the Main motion only.

1.b)  The main motion. Any (lower) subsidiary motions go with the main motion  (to whatever destination you specified - future time, or committee)  .

2)  Some are (I think) some aren't.  But it would be a research project to check the book and get details.  Have fun!

No, they must be applied to a main motion.

No, for the most part. If a main motion is referred to a committee, a pending motion to Postpone Indefinitely is dropped from further consideration (which I assume is what you mean by "dissolved"). Pending amendments are referred to the committee with the main motion.

If a main motion is postponed to a certain time, any pending motions to Postpone Indefinitely, Amend, or Commit are postponed with the main motion.
