yield time

What is yield time?

yield time meaning When the Senate has reached a unanimous consent agreement limiting the time for debate and placing it under the control of floor managers, a senator may be recognized to speak only if a manager yields the senator a specified amount of time to speak. The chair then recognizes the senator receiving the time, not the manager who yields the time, to hold the floor.
