Excerpt from book:
PART I. RULES OF ORDER. Art. I. Introduction of Business. [§§ I-5-] 1. All business should be brought before the assembly by a motion of a member, or by the presentation of a communication to the assembly. It is not usual, however, to make a motion to receive the reports of committees E§ 3] or communications to the assembly; and in many other cases in the ordinary routine of business, the formality of a motion is dispensed with; but should any member object, a regular motion becomes necessary. 2. Before a member can make a motion oraddress the assembly upon any question, it is necessary that he obtain the floor; that is, he must rise and address the presiding officer by his title, thus: " Mr. Chairman," who will then announce the member's name. Where two or more rise at the same time, the chairman must decide who is entitled to the floor, which he does by announcing that member's name. In making his decision he should be guided by the following principles: If the reader's knowledge of the elementary details of parliamentary practice is not sufficient for him to understand these rules in Part I, he should, before proceeding further, read Part II, which is essentially a Parliamentary Primer [See the first note to § 46]. 25 (a) The member upon whose motion the subject under discussion was brought before the assembly (or, in case of a committee's report, the one who presented the report), is entitled to be recognized as having the floor (if he has not already had it during that discussion), notwithstanding another member may have first risen and addressed the chair.

    Overall not bad for free

    There are some digital assumptions, thus typo errors. But for free it is pretty good
