The Moderator may set time limits on all presentations and may terminate debate on a motion when he/she deems it appropriate. Debate on a motion may also be terminated by a voter “moving the question” which, if accepted by the Moderator as not being premature shall be voted on without discussion or debate. A motion to “move the question” requires a two-thirds simple majority vote for passage.
