A parliamentary procedure whereby, in response to conflicting action on a bill by one chamber, the other chamber of the Legislature votes to stand adamantly by its previous action. It is not proper for the adhering body to request a committee of conference, and a vote to adhere to a negative vote kills a bill. This motion is stronger than the motion to "INSIST”, and is opposite of the action to "RECEDE."
