Welcome, one and all to the Pacific Supreme Council!

As the current Lt. Governor, I will be serving as the Leader of the Council, a sort of President Pro Tempore if you will.  It is my responsibility to facilitate debate, votes, and break ties.

So yes, as our first act, I believe we should start creating a Council Rulebook, so we have set procedures for all debates, votes, and other council business.

Sadly, I cannot work on such a task alone for the time being mainly because I'm extremely busy this week, so let us begin brainstorming! Smiley

I don't think we need set rules. The Mideast Assembly worked well for a long time without them.

Update reading list

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

Well, that is true.  But I just think we should have some sort of guideline so we don't have any issues later on.

Should we elect a President Pro-Tempor or a Speaker or something? (Not to try and steal a certain Lt Gov's job Tongue )

I initially thought about going with that, but it seems a little unnecessary when there are only 4 or 5 members on the Council. Furthermore, having the 'chair' not be part of the voting membership is preferable in my opinion as it limits bias and equalizes the power relationships. As long as the Lt. Governor does his job (now that he actually has one Tongue ), that is. Wink

Well I started the thread on time, didn't I? Tongue

Anyway, the process according to the law should be something like this:

Law proposed -> Debate for a day or two -> Vote -> Send it to the People's Assembly for a final vote.

Okay, here's a draft:



Quote
Rules for: Legislation and Debate processes in the Pacific Supreme Council

Written by Archangel and Mr. Fuzzleton

Section:
1.)  Any bill that is proposed to the Pacific Supreme Council will not be debated on for longer than 3 days.

2.)  Any Pacific Councilor may introduce a bill to the Council Body

3.)  Any bill which faces a tie vote in the Council Body will be sent to the Lt. Governor, who will decide the bill's fate.

4.)  Any bill which is passed by the the Council Body will be sent to the Pacific Citizens for confirmation, and if passed by the citizens it is sent to the governor to sign or veto/silent veto.

With Fuzzy's bill, I don't think there are any objections to putting this to a vote.  Voting will be open for a 48 hour period since it's simply procedural rules.

Technically the bill has already passed, but I think we should wait for Xahar's vote so the guidelines can't be disputed.
