DEFINITION
Motion Period

In the House the motion period is limited to a ten-minute timed period (time for roll calls is excluded from the ten minutes) and comes immediately following the third reading of contested Bills on the Calendar (House Rules 6.3 and 8.9). Rule 8.9 states, “When a motion is made during a motion period, the Speaker shall entertain but one motion at a time and there shall be no substitute motions considered. The same motion may be entertained consecutively during the motion period.”
