Attentive consideration of its provisions leads me to withhold it from resubmission to the Senate.
late 14c., "act of referring to a third party for judgment or decision," from Old French submission, from Latin submissionem (nominative submissio) "a lowering, sinking, yielding," noun of action from past participle stem of submittere "lower, reduce, yield" (see submit). Sense of "humble obedience" is first recorded mid-15c. Modern French submission has been replaced by doublet soumission.
