TABLING OF CONFERENCE REPORTS

56. The House has formally discarded the old practice of 182 allowing conference reports to be laid on the table. (1407– 1409.)

NOTE.— The effect of the motion to lay on the table in the House defeats the proposition. It is never taken up again. Hence a conference report can not be laid on the table; otherwise a conference report might be put beyond the reach of either House. (Reed's Parliamentary Rules, Chap. VIII, sec. 115.)

57. The Senate practice allows conference reports to be 183 laid on the table.

(43d Cong., 2d sess., S. Jour., p. 433; Congressional Record, pp. 2205-2206.

NOTE.—The effect of the motion to lay on the table in the Senate, unlike that in the House, is simply to suspend the consideration of a question during the pleasure of the Senate, which can be again taken up on motion.

58. A motion to reconsider the vote on agreeing to a 184 conference report may be laid on the table in the Senate without carrying the report. (44th Cong., 1st sess., S. Jour., p. 234; Congressional Record, p. 1253, 1254; Senate Manual (1901), Rule XIII, clause 1, p. 13.)

WITHDRAWAL OF CONFERENCE REPORTS

59. A conference report may be withdrawn in the 185 Senate on leave, and in the House by unanimous consent.

NOTE.-In the 32d Congress, a conference report having been agreed to in the Senate, the vote was reconsidered, the bill returned from the House on request of the Senate, and the committee of conference had leave to withdraw its report. (32d Cong., 2d sess., S. Jour., p. 420.)
