make and second the motion. Then the motion to Suspend gets debated, then voted on, and per House rules, requires a 2/3 to accomplish.
Note the language in rule 32. Compare it to the House Rule on Suspensions.
The House rule says such a motion is only in order on certain days of the week.
Rule 32 says it is ALWAYS in order, as long as it is made by the majority of delegates from one state, and the majority of delegates from five other states (combined, not individually) give their second to it. Thus, rule 32 was necessary to deal with the nuance of the House Rules which would otherwise not be useful or even possibly make sense, depending on the days of the week that the RNC Convention is held.
