    It depends on whether it is happening in UK or Commonwealth country, or in the USA.

    In Britain to table means to submit (a bill, &c) for consideration by a legislative body.

    In the US to table means to suspend discussion of (a bill, &c) indefinitely or for some time.

    This is a piece of original text written by native speaker, I guess by English or Scot
    I cannot change the original sentence I only would like to understand it better.
    Thanks a lot.
