Rule 2.05, Receding From Positions


2.05 Prior to a Conference Committee on any matter, either house may recede from its position on any difference existing between the two houses. In order to recede, and if the matter is not in the possession of a house, that house shall request return of the matter from the other house. To recede, a majority of a house shall govern, except in cases otherwise provided in the Constitution. If the question is put and lost, it shall not be put again on the same day. A reconsideration of the question shall in all respects be regulated by the rules of that house.
