Kalwejt can you declare his amendment as passed?

First thing that strikes me is that this is functionaly impractical as an act of law and would have to be an Amendment to the Constitution.

The Judiciary Reform Act of 2012

1.  The Supreme Court of Atlasia shall be expanded to 8 members.
2.  The additional five members shall include the Chief Judicial Officer (or equal position) of each of the five regions.  These Regional Representatives shall enjoy full rights as members of the Supreme Court.
3.  If a region does not have a Chief Judicial Officer (or equal position) then the Chief Executive of the region shall appoint a Regional Representative to the Supreme Court.
4.  The Regional Representative shall be on the Supreme Court only as long as he is the CJO of a particular region.  If a vacancy occurs in the position of CJO/Regional Representative, the Governor of the particular region shall name the replacement.
5.  The President can appoint a Regional Representative to a non-regional Supreme Court seat; this will create a vacancy in the Regional Representative spot.

Sorry, Yankee, you're right (AKA I can't wait for your election so I can stop dealing with this stuff)

Aye: 7
Abstrain: 1


This is passed



The sad part is this poor Pole thinks his involvement will end with the PPT election.

The extention was mishandled at least two ways that I can see. One it came after the debate time expired, it was motioned by the VP and not a Senator and a second wasn't presented. Andrews comment could be twisted into either a motion or a second but not both.


The solution to this mishandling is simple, neglect. Kalwejt shall simply neglect to open a vote here and thus fix a problem of incompetence with more incompetence. Grin I expect a vote by the 12th, since an extention would have only lasted 48 hours anyway. Tongue

Time is up on all four of these and we need votes on them all, Kalwejt.

Time ended on the 7th and Clarence and Worms didn't vote. Amongst those who did it was 7 to 1 in favor of tabling.


Kalwejt, you can declare this dead.

The Senators have 24 hours to change their votes, if they are willing to.

You didn't have to give 24 hours. No one voted Nay. Tongue

Section 1: Rules for Conducting the Election of the PPT
1. The President Pro Tempore (PPT) shall be elected by a majority of the Senate in an internal vote of the Senate conducted by the President of the Senate. This vote shall be conducted by preferential vote and the candidate who receives the greatest number of preferential votes shall be elected PPT. If there is tie, the tie-breaking vote shall be cast by the President of the Senate.

2. Following the swearing in of the new Senate at the beginning of each Session, the President of the Senate shall open a thread in the Fantasy Government board for Senators to announce their candidacy for the position of PPT. This thread shall be further known in this document as the PPT Candidacy Declaration Thread and shall be open for forty-eight (48) hours for Senators to declare their candidacy for the position.
3. After forty-eight (48) hours, the PPT Candidacy Declaration Thread shall be closed and a vote on the election of the new PPT shall be opened in a new thread by the President of the Senate. This vote shall last for a maximum of five (5) days during which time the Senators must vote. Any and all Senators who do not vote will be considered to have abstained.

4. If needed, an injunction may be brought by a Senator to keep voting on the election of the new PPT open for another forty-eight (48) hours after which time the voting shall close. This injunction must be seconded by another Senator.

5. Until a candidate for the PPT position has garnered enough preferential votes to achieve a majority, no Senator shall be prohibited from changing his or her vote. Once a candidate for the PPT position has garnered enough preferential votes to achieve a majority, all Senators who have voted will be prohibited from changing their votes.

6. PPT elections do not count towards the restrictions laid out towards in Article 3, Section 2, Clause 2 in limiting the amount of legislation on the Senate floor at one time.

Kalwejt can end this at any time, provided no one votes Nay first or changes their votes.

If someone votes nay, then he must call 24 hours for Senators to change votes.

If someone currently voting aye changes, then we must wait for more Senators.
15567  Atlas Fantasy Elections / Atlas Fantasy Government / Re: SENATE BILL: Saving Over Spending Act of 2012 (At Final Vote) on: July 08, 2012, 10:52:09 pm
Aye
15568  Atlas Fantasy Elections / Atlas Fantasy Government / Re: Confirmation Hearing: Morgieb to be Secretary of Internal Affairs (pending) on: July 08, 2012, 11:20:16 am
The rules place a maximum of 72 hours on questioning time, with a possibility to extend it once for 48 hours. 


If no response is given by the end of the time, I am not voting to confirm.

Request for UC?

Frankly it isn't necessary. No one has talked about the bill itself for several days. Procedural talk doesn't really count the same as talk about the bill itself. So just call for a final vote and Kalwejt can open it.
15570  Atlas Fantasy Elections / Atlas Fantasy Government / Re: SENATE BILL: Government Oversight and Reform Committee Resolution (Debating) on: July 08, 2012, 11:13:36 am
Crude but it will have to do. Tongue


Anyway, my concern now is functionality of these committees. I think the similar they are in structure the better. Three different sets of formulations will lead to unnecessary confusion and time being waisted.

AN  AMENDMENT
To establish clearer proceedings for the Impeachment of Government Officials.

Be it enacted by 2/3 of the Senate of the Republic of Atlasia assembled.

This Amendment shall be titled as the "Impeachment Clarification Amendment".

Section 2: Impeachment
1.In the same manner as the proposition of a Bill, Articles of Impeachment may be proposed  against any executive or judicial officer of the federal government.
2.The Senate will shall be impaneled as a grand jury to consider these Articles of Impeachment; In considering these Articles, the Chief Justice shall preside, unless it is his own impeachment, in which case the President of the Senate shall preside. A two-thirds majority vote of the Senate under quorum rules will be necessary to impeach the Officer.
3.The People shall have sole power to try such impeachments. The Chief Justice shall administer a public poll to try the impeachment, unless it is the Chief Justice who shall have been impeached, in which case the Senate President pro tempore shall administer the public poll. The public poll shall be held for one week and shall require the consent of a majority voting to convict. Citizens shall make their vote publicly known in the form of a post.
4.Upon conviction by the People, the officer shall be removed from office immediately. Any person convicted upon impeachment shall be disqualified from holding any office under the Republic of Atlasia for a time period explicitly specified in the Articles of Impeachment.


Well, we have to start somewhere with this. I have a more sweeping change but it might tank the amendment and I would rather offer it later as a amendment to the text on the floor then as part of the intial text.

huh?


The amendment hasn't even been considered yet, more or less adopted. Huh
