can a pro tem take control of the meeting

if he/she felt the recess was against the rules?

"pro tem"?

A pro tem what?

You already have a chair (permanent or pro tem) calling for a recess.

What title does this pro-tem party hold?

It cannot be a chair pro tem. You already have a chair.

***
If a recess is called against the rules, then the member should make a point of order.

Or, you should vote down a motion To Recess.

That is The Book.

No, a chair pro tem would only have power when the chair is absent.  Having a brief recess does not count as being absent.

Like the others, I am curious how you would even have a chair pro tem if the meeting was chaired by the regular chair.
