Let's Take a vote on the Fair Voting Requirements Act, and the amendment to 3b

     What about Deldem's proposed addition of clause 4? If we include that, I would be comfortable with a final vote on the bill.

The Amendment is supposed to be voted with the actual piece of Legislation.

     That seems slightly odd, since in my time in the Senate some bills were altered into something completely different over the time they were on the floor. In that case, may I suggest that after the votes on amendments are finalized, legislators are given 24 hours to change their vote on the bill itself if they so choose?

Idea approved

     The bill & both amendments have had enough votes to pass for over 24 hours now. Does that mean it goes to the Governor's desk now?

     Okay, this bill is next:

Self Defense Act

1. The Dirty South shall protect the right of any citizen to use lethal force to protect his life, liberty, or property.
2. The Dirty South shall prosecute any person who attempts to violate someone else's right to life, liberty, and property to the fullest extent of the law, regardless of the suspect's profession.

     As an aside, SPC has not been online in nearly three days. It's not such a big deal since the term is nearly over, but I would like to remind everyone to notify the legislature before taking a leave of absence.

He is in violation of standing rule 3. I am talking to the governor about the consequences of the action

SPC is let off with a warning, but a repeated violation will result with an impeachment hearing.

     It's worded rather vaguely, but it seems to me that's it intended to be some sort of "castle law".

     The regional Constitution implies (though does not explicitly state) that life begins at birth. I don't know of any regional statute on abortion, but that's something I could look up.

     If somebody trespasses on your property, you have the right to use lethal force to defend it.

Well if there is nothing in our constitution specificly stating Life begins at birth then this could be interpeted as covering the rights of the unborn, yes?

     The Wiki is a mess, but from what I can tell abortion is fully legal up until 90 days, after which it is only legal in cases where needed for the mother's health, except in Louisiana & South Carolina where it is illegal for all reasons except for the life of the mother

Perhaps the the Clerk could have the duty of keeping the wiki up to date and orderly added to his/her job.

     I seem to recall us having passed an initiative to establish a commission to keep the Wiki current.
