Can the Chair call for motions on a specific topic?

Recommended Posts

Example: A motion has passed requiring the formation of a new committee. Can the chair then solicit motions regarding how to form the new committee (election or appointment, size, manner of election), or must he wait for the floor to offer such motions?

Yes.  In fact, he should do so if it is not already included in the adopted motion and if no other member does so.

Edited to add:  See pages 168 - 176 regarding the motion to Commit or Refer

Should he first wait to see if such motions are offered?

Thanks, Richard. 

No. In fact, a competent chair should ask for such details while the motion to create the committee is pending, not after it has been adopted.
