     If I want my license plate to say 666, then by Satan it will.

I am almost entirely sure you will never see a non-custom license plate that has just "666" for that reason I am opposed.

When I was on vacation in TN I actually did (and it had three non-custom letters/numbers before it. We could amend it to have "unless requested by the person to whom the plate is being issued".

One of my family's old license plates was '666 FHZ', completely random. I'm not against this bill; I think we could add a provision that allows people to add the numbers if they so wish.

     Yeah, I'd be fine with the bill as long as people who do want 666 can still get it.

Imperial Empiricism Act
1. The Imperial Dominion of the South hereby claims the State of Byrd, defined as the area between the meridian 90° west of Greenwich and the meridian 150° west of Greenwich that lies south of the 60th parallel south excluding Peter I Island, as a state within the Empire.
2. The capital of this new state shall be Dufek Station.
3. The Imperial Dominion of the South requests the transfer of Navassa Island, Bajo Nuevo Bank, and Serranilla Bank to their jurisdiction, instead of that of the federal government alone.
4. A K-8th school (with teachers and a library), a gymnasium (with indoor facilities for basketball, volleyball, tennis, foosball, exercise machines, ping pong, a sauna, and dressing rooms), a civilian airstrip, a radio mast (which shall broadcast music and information as well as occasional cultural/entertainment programs), televisions with satellite dishes, a mobile phone antenna, a post office (with a postman, postal plane, and postal helicopter), satellite telephones, computers with internet access, a bank office, a chapel, 14 homes, research facilities, tourist facilities (a hostel, a souvenir shop), 4 fuel-based generators, a base of the Imperial Guard including an airport (meaning it has a hangar and a control tower), a hospital (with 1 doctor & 1 nurse and x-ray, laboratory, surgery, anesthesia, sterilizing, and pharmacy services, with 2 beds and the ability to send images back to the IDS for diagnosis), and a wind turbine field shall be created at Dufek Station.

The Imperial Scribe Act of 2012

1. The position of Imperial Scribe will be conferred upon a sitting member of the Imperial Legislature, as chosen by plurality vote in said legislature.
2. Voting for the Imperial Scribe will take place at the beginning of each new legislative session.
3. The Imperial Scribe will be responsible for posting all new laws on a main page that branches off of the Imperial Dominion of the South’s wiki. The Scribe will update this page immediately following the passage of new legislation in the Imperial Legislature.
4. In the event that the Imperial Scribe is temporarily unable to fulfill his or her duties, the responsibilities of the Scribe will provisionally fall to the Imperial Speaker.
5. In the event that the Imperial Scribe permanently resigns the Scribeship or resigns from Legislature, the responsibilities of the Scribe will temporarily fall to the Imperial Speaker until such time as a by-election can be held in the Legislature to choose a new permanent Scribe.
6. Legislators can fire ineffectual Scribes with a two-thirds majority vote. Under such circumstances, the Speaker will execute the duties of the Scribe until a by-election can be held.
7. The existence of the position of Imperial Scribe does not preclude other Atlasians from updating the wiki.
8. Any pre-existing legislation that allocates wiki-related powers to certain individuals is hereby struck down.

     I used to keep the laws up-to-date, but I've been sort of busy lately. Having someone designated to do it would be good. I think we should also take the opportunity to consider other improvements to regional recordkeeping.

     For example, with Yelnoc gone, I think we should also take the opportunity to formalize the process of maintaining the Imperial Almanac. I rely heavily on it to remember who stands for election when, so not having anyone to update it now is a drag.

     Also, the Public Notification Bill calls for me to post notices of bills passing in the OAII thread. The OAII has now become the Imperial Bloc & I don't think it is right that the region privilege one party in such a fashion. That should probably be amended to have a dedicated thread on the Atlas Fantasy Elections board.

The Imperial Scribe and Regional Housekeeping Act of 2012

1.   The position of Imperial Scribe will be conferred upon a sitting member of the Imperial Legislature, as chosen by plurality vote in said legislature.
2.   Voting for the Imperial Scribe will take place at the beginning of each new legislative session.
3.   The Imperial Scribe will be responsible for posting all new laws on a main page that branches off of the Imperial Dominion of the South’s wiki. The Scribe will update this page immediately following the passage of new legislation in the Imperial Legislature.
4.   The Scribe will henceforth also be responsible for the maintenance of the Imperial Almanac.
5.   In the event that the Imperial Scribe is temporarily unable to fulfill his or her duties, the responsibilities of the Scribe will provisionally fall to the Imperial Speaker.
6.   In the event that the Imperial Scribe permanently resigns the Scribeship or resigns from Legislature, the responsibilities of the Scribe will temporarily fall to the Imperial Speaker until such time as a by-election can be held in the Legislature to choose a new permanent Scribe.
7.   Legislators can fire ineffectual Scribes with a two-thirds majority vote. Under such circumstances, the Speaker will execute the duties of the Scribe until a by-election can be held.
8.   The existence of the position of Imperial Scribe does not preclude other Atlasians from updating the wiki.
9.   Any pre-existing legislation that allocates wiki-related powers to certain individuals is hereby struck down.
10.   Specifically, the Public Notification Bill will be amended such that the Emperor is now responsible for notifying all IDS citizens of newly passed legislation in a separate thread on the Atlas Fantasy Elections board.

-----------------

See points 4 and 10.

As for 10, I'm honestly not sure how ammendments work. So If someone else would like to correct me/sort this out, it would be much appreciated.

I just figured it would be a good idea to formalize the position a little bit more. Also, there's no reason for the Emperor or the Speaker to be swamped with all the wiki work. (Though perhaps I should add a clause allowing emperors to stand for election to the scribeship...?)

     If you wanted to amend an omnibus law, I'd probably insist on more formal wording. As it stands, I think your section 10 is good.

I think this is a decent overall proposal. A thriving Wiki and Almanac better serves the interests of the region and is good for long-term stability. I see nothing bad in the proposals put forth.

Thanks Adam. I'd be lying if I said I didn't have you in mind for the job when writing it. Wink

On an unrelated note, when do newly elected legislators take office?
