SUSPENSION OF THE RULES. 54. No standing rule or order of the House shall be changed, suspended or rescinded unless one day's notice shall have been given of the motion therefor; nor shall such change be made unless by a vote of a majority of all the members elected to the Assembly; any such rule, or order, however, may be suspended by unanimous consent. But such notice shall not be necessary on the last day of the session. The notice and motion shall, in all cases, state specifically the object of the suspension, and every case of suspension of a rule under such notice and motion shall be held to apply only to the object specified therein.

Such notice shall be given and such motion made under the order of business in which the matter proposed to be advanced by the suspension shall stand.
