The Assembly should have no jurisdiction over Assembly appointments.  The Speaker has certain rights, but Assembly appointments should not be one of them.

Actually, I agree

If the appointee chooses to run in the ensuing Assembly election for a full term in the Assembly, then so be it.  That's democracy.  There is no way we should be dictating to that person that they cannot run for a full term.  To me, that goes against the meaning of democracy.

I also do agree here, against my first proposal.

Thus I am satisfied with the status quo.

Before I give up and table the legislation, Rep. Simfan, you said:

I could support this bill if there was a restriction on interim, appointed, representatives running to fill the vacancy they currently occupy.

You say that Rep Winfield addressed this concern, but you'd still prefer the status quo, i.e. vacancies persisting for several weeks whenever they crop up?

EDIT: Never mind, Gov Napoleon says that I've misunderstood you. In that case, I'll request that debate time on this bill be truncated by 10 hours.

I believe he means the status quo of this bill, which I would sign if passed. I don't see a need to table.

Request granted, Mr. Speaker. The assembly will now vote on the legislation. The vote will last 24 hours.

Quote
Vacancy Mitigation Act of 2012

1. When a vacancy occurs in the Northeast Assembly, the Governor shall have the power to appoint an Interim Representative.

2. Interim Representatives have the same powers as elected Representatives.

3. Interim Representatives serve until a special election to fill the vacancy is held and a new elected Representative is sworn in.

4. The Assembly may expel an Interim Representative by a majority vote of elected Representatives.

Are you going to vote? You should do so now so we can move on.

You responded to a line of conversation that had been going on in this topic with your vote, yet when it came to actually  making the vote you didn't know what you were voting on? EDIT: You also had already voted on the other bill under consideration when you cast your vote. I hate to cast aspersions, but this seems odd, especially as you deleted your post without explanation.

Anyway, please vote (or indicate that you are abstaining) so that this body can move on and consider other legislation.

Well, I understand. I do apologize to the Assembly.

I shall be voting NAY.

I shall send this to the people for a vote alongside the special Assembly election.
