Senate Meeting Rules


1. A Motion to Adjourn, Once Adopted, Terminates a Meeting.

Such a motion may not interrupt a speaker or a vote, but does take precedence over other pending business. It may be reintroduced at any time, as long as other business has intervened.

2. Adjournment to a Fixed Time.

This may be amended.  Amendments to such a motion are debatable.

3. Recess.

A motion to recess may be amended, and the amendment may be debated. It does not terminate the meeting, and the business is resumed at the point where it was broken off before the recess.
