Rule 9.12.  Appeals of rulings of the Chair

On a motion to appeal the ruling of the Chair on a point of order, a negative vote of a majority of the members present shall be required to overrule such ruling.  On such an appeal of the ruling of the Chair, no member may speak more than once, unless permitted to do so by the House.  When voting on the motion to appeal the ruling of the Chair, the question shall be stated so that an affirmative vote will be to sustain the ruling of the Chair.  Any ruling of the Chair which has been sustained shall not thereafter be appealed on the same legislative day on the same point of order, except by a vote of two-thirds of the members present.
