A HOUSE RESOLUTION ADOPTING THE PERMANENT RULES OF THE HOUSE OF REPRESENTATIVES FOR THE 2017 REGULAR SESSION.
House amendment makes the following changes to the 2nd edition. Amends Rule 24.1B, concerning the division of amendments and questions, as follows. Adds the requirement that a motion for an amendment to be divided be made in writing and submitted to the Principal Clerk at the time the motion is made, with a clear statement as to how the question is to be divided. Adds that upon a majority vote of the members present and voting, the motion must be adopted and the body must debate and vote each amendment separately. Amends the provisions concerning division of a bil, to clarify that any member may call for a bill to be divided into two or more propositions to be voted on separately if the bill is subject to division into separate parts so that each part states a separate and distinct proposition capable of standing alone. Clarifies that if the question is divided, the body must debate and vote each proposition separately; if any proposition fails, the bill must be removed from the calendar and re-referred to the committee from which the bill was reported.
