Can an article be reconsidered?
Reconsideration is allowed at any time during the meeting if the article does not involve the appropriation of money. If the article involves the appropriation of money, notice of reconsideration must be given within 30 minutes of the vote on the article. Reconsideration may then be allowed at any future time.
