How to use "Parliamentary procedure" in context?

Parliamentary procedure is the set of rules and practices used by members of legislatures to conduct their business. These procedures can be divided into formal and informal aspects. Formal parliamentary procedures may be organized through codes of conduct, standing orders, or other regulations. Informal parliamentary procedures are developed organically through the clash of egos and the need to compromise.

One of the most important aspects of parliamentary procedure is the ability of parliamentarians to debate and vote on bills. In order to do this, they must be able to understand the proposed bill and how it would change the law.
