SENATE RESOLUTION NO. 103
BY JUDICIARY AND RULES COMMITTEE
1 A SENATE RESOLUTION
2 PROVIDING FOR THE AMENDMENT OF RULE 47 OF THE RULES OF THE SENATE.
3 Be It Resolved by the Senate of the State of Idaho:
4 WHEREAS, the Senate deems it necessary and desirable to amend Rule 47 of
5 the Rules of the Senate.
6 NOW, THEREFORE, BE IT RESOLVED by the members of the Senate, assembled in
7 the First Regular Session of the Fifty-eighth Idaho Legislature, that Rule 47
8 of the Rules of the Senate be amended to read as follows:
9 RULE 47
10 General and Special Rules.-- (A) If any rule of procedure contained in
11 these rules and having application to a particular situation or action appears
12 to be in conflict with another rule more general in nature, the special rule
13 shall apply in the situation specified.
14 Constitution Inconsistent.--(B) If any laws or constitutional provisions
15 of the State of Idaho are inconsistent with these rules, the conflicting rule
16 shall defer to the law or constitutional provision.
STATEMENT OF PURPOSE
The purpose of this resolution is to amend Senate Rule 47.
Effectively it deletes (b). Without a doubt the Constitution of
the State of Idaho is always the overriding instrument as
compared with the Senate Rules, and the rules of the Senate do
not require that statement. Additionally, the resolution
provides for the Senate to reassert its right to establish by
rule its policies and procedures without deferring its rule
making power to another legislative body and the executive
