3. The Northeast Governor may appoint the head of the News Agency at the consent of the Northeast Assembly.
4. The Head of the News Agency may be replaced at anytime due to inactivity or poor performance at the behest of either the Governor or a majority vote of the Northeast Assembly.

Section 2:

1. The Head of the News Agency as appointed by the Governor may hire assistants to work with at their own recognizance.
2. The Head of the News Agency is responsible only for NE storylines and cannot override any decision by the Game Moderator.

This bill is unnecessary, as the legislation in question has already expired and has not been renewed by the Assembly. I recommend the sponsor table it.

Expiration does not equal repeal from the statute book.  Even though it is no longer in effect, it remains on the statute book and would mislead those looking through it.  I don't quite understand why it wouldn't be expeditious to go ahead and remove an act that is no longer in force.

I am opposed to the motion to table.
