(b) disagrees to amendments made by the Senate on the original amendments of the House of Representatives; or

(c) agrees to amendments made by the Senate on the original amendments of the House of Representatives, with further amendments,

the Senate may:

(d) agree, with or without amendment, to the amendments to which it had previously disagreed, and make, if necessary, consequent amendments to the bill;

(e) insist on its disagreement to such amendments;

(f) withdraw its amendments and agree to the original amendments of the House of Representatives;

(j) agree, with or without amendment, to such further amendments of the House of Representatives, making consequent amendments to the bill, if necessary; or

(k) disagree to the further amendments and insist on its own amendments which the House of Representatives has amended,

and if agreement is not reached or if the bill is again returned by the House of Representatives with any of the requirements of the Senate still disagreed to, the Senate shall order the bill to be laid aside, or request a conference.
