Once a motion has been adopted by a body on a subject that was debated, can a new motion on the same subject be voted on by the body at a subsequent meeting even through the

requests of the prior motion have not been instituted or fulfilled? The Constitution of the Body does state that they are governed by Roberts Rules of Order.

The unexecuted portion of the previously adopted main motion can be rescinded or amended:

"By means of the motions to Rescind and to Amend Something Previously Adopted —which are two forms of one incidental main motion governed by identical rules—the assembly can change an action previously taken or ordered. Rescind—also known as Repeal or Annul—is the motion by which a previous action or order can be canceled or countermanded. The effect of Rescind is to strike out an entire main motion, resolution, order, or rule that has been adopted at some previous time. Amend Something Previously Adopted is the motion that can be used if it is desired to change only a part of the text, or to substitute a different version. "  RONR (11th ed.), p. 305  (but read the rest of the section for important rules including the vote requirement)

Just making another motion on the subject isn't the proper way to handle it.
