34/Maryland Manual

THE PROGRESS OF A BILL

Third Reading: The bill, with any adopted
amendments, is then printed for third reading. No
amendments may be presented on third reading.
In the chamber of origin, a vote is taken to pass
or reject the bill. To pass, the bill must receive a
majority vote of the elected membership.

Second Chamber: The procedure followed is
identical with that of the chamber in which the
bill originated, except that amendments may be
proposed during third reading as well as at second

reading. If the bill is not amended in the second
chamber, final passage may occur without re-
printing.

Consideration of Bills Originating in one Cham-
ber and Amended in the Second:
If amended in
the second chamber, the bill is returned to the
chamber of origin for the sole purpose of permit-
ting that house to accept the amendments. If the
chamber of origin votes to concur with the
amendments, the bill itself is voted on as amended
