Under Robert's Rules of Order Newly Revised (11th Edition), can a motion to Limit or Extend Limits of Debate be applied to more than the immediately pending debatable motion? (difficulty level - 5)
Yes. The motion can be also appplied to an entire series of pending debatable motions or to any consecutive part of such a series beginning with the immediately pending question. RONR § 15 (p. 192).
What is the consequence under Robert's Rules of making a motion proposeing to change the limits of debate made when no question is pending? (difficulty level - 3)
The motion is not the subsidiary motion to Limit or Extend Limits of Debate, but an incidental main motion, meaning the motion is debatable (but still requires a two-thirds vote). RONR § 15 (p. 192).
