TITLE II : LEGISLATIVE, BUDGETARY, DISCHARGE AND OTHER PROCEDURES
CHAPTER 1 : LEGISLATIVE PROCEDURES - GENERAL PROVISIONS

Rule 46 : Right of Parliament to submit proposals

In cases where the Treaties confer a right of initiative on Parliament, the committee responsible may decide to draw up an own-initiative report in accordance with Rule 54.

The report shall include:

(a)   a motion for a resolution;

(b)   a draft proposal;

(c)   an explanatory statement including, where appropriate, a financial statement.

Where the adoption of an act by Parliament requires the approval or the consent of the Council and the opinion or the consent of the Commission, Parliament may, following the vote on the proposed act, and on a proposal by the rapporteur, decide to postpone the vote on the motion for a resolution until the Council or the Commission have stated their position.
