You don't need any rules. The Mideast does fine without them. The Northeast has rules, and they have plenty of issues. We don't want to be like the Northeast.

Update reading list

The idea of parodying the preceding Atlasian's postings is laughable, of course, but not for reasons one might expect.

Rules for the election of a Speaker is all that is really needed. The Mideast does have that.

     Looks good. Two comments, though:

1) using the terms Legislator & Senator interchangeably without including a clause establishing that they are in fact interchangeable could cause confusion.

2) establishing rules on legislation, such as how long debate has to be open, how long various types of votes are open, &c. Probably should take care to establish a cloture requirement such that attaining cloture does not entail enough votes to override a veto, which would be difficult in such a small body. Maybe have two-thirds of Legislators plus the Lieutenant Governor voting in the affirmative to attain cloture.

I agree with these sentiments.

Also, I'd say the rules are all good, but that I don't really think Rule 2 is absolutely necessary.

Southeast is one word, not two.

Since both our regional and federal legislatures are unicarmel and the federal legislature uses the term Senator, I would suggest ours use a different title for its members.

     Does it need to be sent to the governor? The Senate does not need amendments to the OSPR to be signed by the President.

     I don't particularly mind either way, though it might become a point of contention should he at some point veto an amendment to the standing rules.

It must be signed by the governor because your regional constitution doesn't provide for the Legislature's ability to make its own rules, as does the federal constitution. So this must be legislation.

     Looks good, though I think that the Region Clerk should serve for as long as he wishes, unless the Governor decides to replace him. Seems like doing it that way would cut down on formalities.
