Section V-30: Judges of election of members - Quorum - Rules - Disorderly behavior - Journal.

  Each House shall be the judge of the elections, returns, and
qualifications of its own members, and a majority of each shall
constitute a quorum to do business; but a smaller number may
adjourn from day to day, and may be authorized to compel the
attendance of absent members, in such manner and under such
penalty as each House may provide.
  Each House may determine the rules of its proceedings, punish
its members for disorderly behavior, and, with the concurrence of
two-thirds, expel a member.
  Each House shall keep a journal of its proceedings, and from
time to time publish the same.  The yeas and nays of the members
of either House on any question, at the desire of one-fifteenth
of those present shall be entered upon its journal.
  Neither House, during the session of the Legislature, shall,
without the consent of the other, adjourn for more than three
days, nor to any other place than that in which the two Houses
shall be sitting.
