In the Colorado State Budget Process, there are motions that bring a question before the assembly again. They are:

  1. Take from the Table = resume consideration of a main motion
  2. Rescind, Repeal or Annul = cancel something that has been previously adopted
  3. Amend Something Previous Adopted = proposal to modify wording or text previously adopted
  4. Discharge a Committee = if a question has been referred or a task assigned to a committee that has not made a final report the committee may be discharged to allow the Board to take action or to drop the motion
  5. Reconsider = within the same meeting a motion has been voted on the question may come before the assembly again as if it had not been voted on
