Commissioners, please sign in here.

This thread will be used for the procedures and deliberations of the Commission and its members, but citizens' input is also welcome at any time.

Thanks, Cincinnatus. I'd be happy to chair the commission, but I'll wait to hear Simfan's input before going ahead.

I'll send him a PM.

We need to move forward with this, has Simfan responded to any PM's?  If he doesn't want to be an active participant, he should let it be known so he can be replaced and we can start getting work done.

He hasn't. I don't think there's a reason to ask for another member and waste more time, we can get on with this right away, Cincinnatus, just the two of us.

I think the first thing to do is take care of legislation: I'm thinking one page/section for approved legislation, one for rejected legislation, one for the Constitution, etc. I can get started assembling all the bills from Assembly sessions that came after the last wiki update.

Yes, I was just going to recommend that the two of you proceed, as homelycooking has just stated.  You beat me to it. 

I would like to say that if Lieutenant Governor Simfan wishes to join later, he should be made welcome and given some responsibilities.  I have no doubt that Simfan is a very capable individual.  We do not know why Simfan has not responded lately, but I am sure he has a very good reason.

Thanks for taking the initiative to get this commission rolling.

That's what?  Two-three years?  Ought to take a bit Tongue

I think that's a good idea, one page for "signed", and one page for "Proposed" (or "Rejected" rather), legislation.  I think when the time comes to actually post the reorganized information, that we should consider timestamps of passage, or certain notes that might be of future use.  That's just something to keep in mind.

I don't want to double up on any responsibilities, so I'll let you determine what responsibility I should undertake.  As of now, I'm going to start looking at legislation already on the wiki page, searching it, seeing it's current standing (passed when, still law?, ect).  If you give me a different duty, I will of course proceed with that instead Smiley

I am very sorry, I have been away these past few days, and my ability to access the internet is limited. I shall be back on Sunday.

I approve of all the decisions made so far, although I think there ought to be a special page on repealed legislation.

Commissioners,

I have proposed a new Constitution. Were this Constitution to be taken up by the Assembly and follow procedure to take effect, I'd like to know if you think it would be wise to include a section on keeping the legislative record in the Constitution. Feel free to post in the thread about it, or just post any comments or concerns regarding my proposal there

Thanks!

2. The information to be made public by this act shall be published within three days of the passage of this Act.

3. Any future changes to the above information must be made within three days of an event necessitating a change, such as a new officer/legislator's ascendance to or removal from his respective office or the calling of a new special election.

5. The above information shall be made public through at least one of the following media:

vi) When the polls close, the Chief Judicial Officer of the Northeast Region shall be given twenty-four hours to count the votes and declare a winner. The candidate with the most votes for the office of Governor shall be made Governor. The newly elected Governor is to be officially sworn in on the Tuesday following the election and shall immediately assume office at that point. In the case of a tie, all tied candidates are to run in a run-off election the following week to determine a winner.

The Governor may not have the power to veto parts as opposed to the whole of any legislation. The Governor is required to sign all pieces of legislation he supports into law after it passes a successful vote in the Legislative Assembly within one week of its passing. Once he or she has signed the legislation, it immediately becomes law unless otherwise stated in the legislation itself. If the Governor does not sign the successful legislation after one week, than it becomes law immediately.

xii) The Governor is obligated to present the Legislative Assembly a budget every January, if he or she is in office at that time. The budget of all government activities is to be voted on by the Assembly in the same January. The Governor is obligated that the budget does not provide for any deficits excepting times of emergency or war, a condition the Legislative Assembly must successfully endorse.

xiii) In the temporary absence of the Governor, then the Speaker of the Legislative Assembly may be allowed to temporarily conduct the duties of the Governor as acting Governor. Temporary absence may last up to seven days unless specifically determined by the Governor.

The chain of command shall be used to fill sudden vacancies in the office of Governor.

Article V is amended to read as follows:

xiv) The Speaker of the Legislative Assembly of the Northeast acts as the President of the Northeast Legislative Assembly. He officially opens and closes the sessions, organizes votes on legislation and notifies the Reps of the results of any official vote. If a vote results in a perfect tie. In this case, the Governor shall be allowed to vote to break said tie.

xv) The Assembly shall have the power to override the Governor’s veto. If the Assembly passes legislation previously vetoed by the Governor by more than a two-thirds majority vote, it becomes law without the Governor’s signature. An override vote resulting in an exactly two-thirds majority shall be considered failed.

Article VI is amended to read as follows:

iv) No persons shall hold the positions of Governor and Chief Judicial Officer at the same time.


Resolution Thanking Rowan Brandon

Lieutenant Governor Simfan has been away lately and has had limited internet access.  He will return this following Sunday.
 
I have asked him to check into the Wiki Reform Commission Thread, and have advised him that he would be given some responsibility on the commission.

Thank you.

Would it be preferred that I start creating separate pages for laws so that they can be linked to under the Main Page.  It would look something like the IDS "law" page.  Here's the page I created for a separate law;

A fine list; but I think it might be cumbersome to create a new Wiki page for every law that is enacted.

I just did all of those in a span of 5-10 minutes.  I have no problem taking the reports and putting them in separate pages.  Of course, if you think this format is less convenient, perhaps I should abandon it.  I just think it offers organization, and, I don't have to post cumbersome amounts of bills here for reference, because I have a list of where I can see them.

Really? Oh, that's fantastic. That could work quite well, then. I should get started on converting my bills in that way.

The Free Highway Access Act was repealed. Don't ask me why.

When I was in the third grade, I thought that I was Jewish
Because I could count, my nose was big, and I kept my bank account fullish
I told my mom, tears blurring my vision
He said, "Mort, you've loved God since before circumcision"
