Budget Proposal FY2018/2019

Recommended Posts

Mr.President,

 

I rescind my motion, I instead make the motion to end cloture after the passage or rejection of standing amendments to the legislation

 

I Yield

While refusing to yield the floor I humbly request a parliamentary inquiry from my interpretation a motion for cloture supersedes all other amendments to said bill even if recognized first they would be placed on the bnotckburner and only pass provided cloture failed and I gave up the floor which I am unwilling to do.

Mr. President,

 

Is your current plan to simply ignore my parliamentary inquiry?

 

I still hold the floor and refuse to yield.

We await the Parliamentarian, until then my interpretation of the motion shall continue

The Parliamentarian: The Senator is correct that the motion for cloture supersedes all other motions. During a filibuster, all other motions, debate, and votes on the Senate Floor are halted for its duration. However, a cloture motion and vote may continue over a filibuster. If cloture is reached, debate is ended (as is the filibuster), and all incomplete motions that were halted as a response to the filibuster are left incomplete and all undecided amendments are left out of the final bill that is placed to a vote. 

 

The only other actions members may take during a filibuster, besides making and seconding a motion for cloture and voting on it, are to rise to a Point of Order or a Point of Inquiry. In both of these cases, the presiding officer may address the Point in question but the person conducting the filibuster is not forced to yield the floor.
