But after the assembly has actually taken up the orders of the day or a question of privilege, debate and amendment are permitted and the subsidiary motions may be applied the same as on any main motion. These motions are as follows, being arranged in order of precedence:
Privileged Motions.

Fix the Time to which to Adjourn (if made while another question is pending)      16
Adjourn (if unqualified and if it has not the effect to dissolve the assembly) 17
Take a Recess (if made when another question is pending) 18
Raise a Question of Privilege 19
Call for Orders of the Day 20

Take from the Table 35
Reconsider 36
Rescind 37
Renewal of a Motion 38
