     Deldem is away at this time, so we will be unable to begin business immediately.

Can we start introducing legislation now, or do we have to wait until all of our members are sworn in?

It would be recommended you form some sort of Standing Rules for the body so that the sequence of things is orderly.

     So everyone can see, I would like to introduce this bill when the legislature begins official business

End To Regional Aggression Bill

1. The Southeast Militia shall be officially disbanded, effective immediately upon passage of this bill.

2. The Southeast Militia may be reconstituted by the Governor, subject to the approval of the Southeast Legislature, should he deem it necessary for the protection of the citizenry of the Southeast.

3. The citizenry of the Southeastern region shall reserve the right to petition for referendum on any order by the Governor of the Southeast to reconstitute the militia.

4. The transport of prisoners to the Pacific region in accordance with the Suck it Pacific Act of 2010 shall be suspended permanently, effective immediately upon passage of this bill.


     I will no longer introduce this bill, as I have been informed that Governor Jbrase has revoked his two executive orders that created the bulk of the controversy.

The original act remains, does it not? If you repealed that, we could put it all behind us and resume full trade and transportation.

     Good point. I'll just introduce a bill to repeal the original act then.

     Thank you. I will wait until we get preliminary business done with to introduce it, though, so it does not get forgotten down the line. I only introduced the first version now because I did not want any silence on the issue to be interpreted as support of the Southeast Militia meandering around the Pacific region.

     Thinking more about it, an emergency initiative can be declared, so repealing the Suck It Pacific Act of 2010 can be voted on as soon as possible. Alternatively, Governor Jbrase could issue an executive order suspending it indefinitely, so the legislature can get around to it later.

It is already suspended, but to end it quicker I'll just start an emergency initiative.

I'm ready to start if you guys are.

Thanks for waiting the last few days, I didn't get home until late Saturday night and was swamped with all the work I had to make up from the previous three days on Sunday.

     Alright. I suppose we should start by discussing & voting on the standing orders if the Lt. Governor has them ready?

Rule 1: Oaths

   The New Legislators shall be inaugurated by an oath of office. The oath is: "I, (name of Senator), do solemnly swear (or affirm) that I will support and defend the Constitution of the South East against all enemies, foreign and domestic; that I will bear true faith and allegiance to the same; that I take this obligation freely, without any mental reservation or purpose of evasion; and that I will well and faithfully discharge the duties of the office on which I am about to enter: So help me Dave."


Rule 2: Designation of Titles:

   The Legislatures shall refer to each member by the name of Legislator. As for the Speaker of the legislature, the Legislator shall refer to him or her as Mr. or Mrs. Speaker. As for the Lt. Governor, the legislative body shall refer to him or her as Mr. Or Mrs. President

Rule 3: Quorums and Absentee Legislature:


 A quorum shall consist of a majority of the legislators duly chosen and sworn.
 No Senator shall absent himself from the service of the Legislature without leave.
 If, at any time during the daily sessions of the Senate, a question is raised by any Legislator as to the presence of a quorum, the Presiding Officer shall forthwith direct the Secretary of the Legislature to call the roll and shall announce the result, and these proceedings shall be without debate.

 Whenever such roll call occurs, it shall be ascertained that a quorum does not exist and not present, a majority of the Senators present may direct the Sergeant at Arms of the Southeast Legislature to request, and, when necessary, to compel the attendance of the absent Senators, which order shall be determined without debate; and pending its execution, and until a quorum shall be present, no debate nor motion, except to adjourn, or to recess pursuant to a previous order entered by unanimous consent, shall be in order.
   If a Legislator is going to be absent from the legislature, the person shall announce his leave of absence no later than a day before his absence


Rule 4: The Presiding Officer:   
Whoever is present during the meeting of the legislator shall be the highest ranking official . If the Lt. Governor is absent the title goes to the Speaker.
