The bills upon third reading shall be considered in the order in which they appear upon the file, unless otherwise ordered by unanimous consent or by vote of majority of the members present such vote to be taken by roll call; provided, that if a bill is passed on file for any reason, other than the absence of the author by leave of the Assembly, note of the fact shall be made in the General File, and when passed on file a second time, the bill shall be ordered to the foot of the file, and notice of the fact of the bill having been passed on file prior to the order placing it at the foot of the file, shall be omitted from the General File.
