Welcome to the Purple State/Marokai Blue administration!

Our office is currently being furnished and redecorated in anticipation of our official swearing in tomorrow. Because I will not have access to the forum until later in the day (read: after noon), I want to have this thread up and ready to go for our first few initiatives tomorrow.

Feel free to leave comments, questions, etc. as always.

~PS and the team

For DoFA? You'll still need some Presidential action, so you'll have to wait until PS gets online to make his appointments official, but I don't think your position needs a hearing, you just need to wait for the President and then Meeker to be confirmed I think, since you also need an SoFE in place to be picked.

Be it therefore resolved, that the following duties be given to the members of the executive branch with regards to the Wiki:

2. The Vice President shall be charged with the maintenance of the front page of the Wiki, including the list of all executive officers, and he shall be responsible for the maintenance of the Vice Presidents of Atlasia page.

3. The Attorney General shall be charged with providing timely updates to and cleaning up the Statute page, which shall include the process of moving all repealed legislation to a separate list, and he shall be responsible for the maintenance of the Attorney Generals page.

4. The Secretary of Federal Elections shall be charged with providing a schedule of federal elections for the next year on the Wiki and adding results of each federal election to the Wiki, and he shall be responsible for the maintenance of the Secretary of Federal Elections page.

Executive Proclamation

I want to wish everyone a happy July 4th weekend! I know things will probably be slow until Tuesday or Wednesday and I look forward to hitting the ground running as everyone trickles back in.

I will provide a status update on our progress around the end of the week and I will hopefully be able to call the Constitutional Convention fairly soon, so look forward to a busy few weeks!

I will be introducing 9 bills once there is an elected PPT. It will be part of an "Administration Legislative Agenda" thread I will create once someone has been elected PPT, which of course looks to be BK at the moment.

There is more than one important bill in the bunch of initial proposals, much work still to be done, and plenty of game reform/forum affairs proposals in the package. (As well as the obligatory joke proposal Tongue)

Stay tuned!

Announcement

I have begun the Help:Editing page on the Wiki. It is available at the top of the Wiki Main Page and can be accessed whenever you go to edit any page (if you look down to the right by the "Save page" button).

Feel free to offer any tips for what should be included as the project continues.

Executive Order Calling a Constitutional Convention

Whereas, a majority of the regions have requested a Constitutional Convention, with the two remaining regions likely following suit shortly; and,

Whereas, Article VII, Section 2 of the Atlasian Constitution says that upon petition by the citizens of a majority of the regions the President shall call for a Convention with the advice and consent of the Senate;

Be it therefore resolved, that I hereby call for the creation of a Constitutional Convention for the purposes of consolidating the Constitution and amendments and closing loopholes and considering the possibility of a legislative reboot; and

Be it further resolved, that I ask that the Senate begin consideration of a Convention and the regulations for such an endeavor. This process should be straightforward, yet duly considered, and I trust that the Senate will choose the most efficient and appropriate way to conduct the Convention.

     If I may make a suggestion, an ongoing problem in Atlasia has been that Constitutional amendments are often passed without fanfare. In some cases, this has meant that they have gone unrecorded & subsequently being forgotten for a period of months. I was reminded of this fact by RG Fritz's comment on the recent amendment allowing more frequent intra-regional moves apparently having passed.

     As such, Mr. President, I would like to suggest that, upon the passage of any amendment, you make an official statement recognizing that fact. While there may still be a problem of amendments going unrecorded in the wiki, it should help alleviate the issue of people forgetting about the amendment & not knowing whether or not it passed unless they decide to systematically inspect the voting booths.

If provided with some background information and on the spot help, I can troll though the records and attempt to figure out what's missing.

This would be a long term project however.

This is actually a fine idea and one I will likely implement.

Honestly, there is an array of issues with how we do amendments to the Constitution and no easy way to fix those problems given the nature of the game.

As one example, currently an amendment goes to national referendum almost immediately upon passage by the Senate. However, that does not often draw votes from much of Atlasia and so the less active players may not only miss a vote, but they may also never even know that the vote took place or that the amendment exists. A rational solution would be to move those referendums to coincide with the next federal elections for regional senators (to make it easier to track results by region); however, this poses a problem for emergency amendments that effect the election process.

And that is just one example. Wink

One surefire way to make the amendment process slightly easier is for the Senate to only consider truly important amendments, rather than miscellaneous items. I will be the first to admit that I failed to live up to that standard as a senator, but once we consolidate I hope it can be implemented as an unwritten tradition.

Anyway, all of that was a long way of saying "Great idea!"

Announcement

First, I will be announcing my pick to replace VP Marokai Blue on the Supreme Court tomorrow night so stay tuned.

Second, there is a budget committee still floating around whose mission I support and which I want to see make some sort of effort to study and understand this issue. If confirmed, GM-designee Al will preside over the committee, but there are two additional members that I am statutorily bound to appoint. Please PM me if you are interested in serving on this committee.

Thanks!

Mr. President, there is a bill on your desk: The Fusion Ballot Reform Act.

(Note that right now I'm only exercising PPT powers via OSPR Article II, Section 2, Clause 1.c, which states the PPT can do things "in any case where the President of the Senate has failed to uphold the provisions of this Procedural Resolution when it is in his power to do so individually. " I'm interpreting this, perhaps very broadly, to open and close votes when enough time has elapsed and such.)

I actually meant to PM you about that. I have no desire to run the Senate and I wanted to turn it over to you as soon as you were elected PPT, but I said nothing about it, so you had no idea I wanted you to do that. So yes, by all means Tongue
