GAVEL THROUGHgavel through. Parliamentary law. To put (a question) to a vote before any member can obtain the floor. ? The practice of ¡°gaveling through¡± a motion is improper under parliamentary law.
¡°It should be noted that, under legitimate parliamentary procedure, there is no such thing as ¡®gaveling through¡¯ a measure. The right of members to debate or introduce secondary motions cannot be cut off by the chair’s at-tempting to put a question to vote so quickly that no member can get the floor ¡ª either when the chair first states the question or when he believes debate is ended. Debate is not closed by the presiding officer’s rising to put the question.¡± Henry M. Robert, Robert’s Rules of Order Newly Revised¡ì 43, at 374 (10th ed. 2000).
