Rule 13.90. Reporting legislative instruments; vote required

A.  The main motion on the consideration of any instrument referred to a standing committee shall be to report the same in one of the manners set forth by Senate Rule 13.9 or to defer or postpone action, or to table consideration of the same.

B.  No bill shall be reported unless one of the reports enumerated in Senate Rule 13.9 has been affirmatively adopted by a majority of a quorum present and voting.  The failure of the committee to adopt any report for which the motion was made shall not constitute adoption of any other report.  When a motion to report a bill in a specified manner fails, adoption by the committee of a subsequent specific motion shall be required to report the bill.
