Pass on

Pass on

[pas, pahs]
The motion to pass on is a dilatory motion used in legislative procedure. It is distinct from the motion to lay on the table or postpone definitely. Mason's Manual states:
The effect of the motion to lay side, informally pass or temporarily pass is merely to pass the bill or measure, in the course of consideration of the calendar, without prejudice to the matter passed. Such a motion is not given any privilege by the rules. It is subject to the subsidiary motions and is not debatable.
