A motion for a chamber to “recede and concur” on a bill typically occurs in the Maine State Legislature when the House and the Senate have voted in opposite directions on the passage of a bill. A motion to “recede and concur” is a motion to reverse the vote of one’s own chamber and to agree to the motion of the other chamber. For example, if the Maine House votes to pass LD 342 and the Maine Senate votes not to pass LD 342, a successful motion to recede and concur in the Senate would have the effect of reversing the Senate’s action and agreeing after all to pass LD 342.
