Amending a motion

Recommended Posts

A single motion is on the floor seeking approval of projects A (costing $5000) and B (costing $2000) for a total spend of $7000.  These projects are totally independent of each other but the motion presents them as a package that will result in a single vote approving both simultaneously. Is it feasible to move to amend in an attempt to separate these projects to require a separate vote on each?   If so, how would this be introduced.

If the two projects are truly totally independent of each other, then the motion can be divided into consideration of each of the two projects separately on the demand of a single member. See RONR, 12th ed., 27:10 for division on demand, and section 27 in total for the motion Division of a Question, which describes the conditions when a motion and majority vote is required to divide a question into its separate parts and consider some or all of them separately.
