Why is the speaker ignoring the several pieces of legislation I've proposed in failing to put them up for consideration them before this one, when mine were introduced well before Mr. Cincinnatus's?

Hold on! Can someone provide me with a link to the current law for reference?

Repeal this bill (that is admittedly a failure), so that I/we can move forward without the hindrance this bill will cause.

I would like to hear the reasoning behind this proposed legislation in this Assembly before making a determination one way or the other.

Ha, literally a second too slow. Anyway I believe I was against assigning Wiki responsibilities to any single Northeasterner and obviously I don't have Wiki access personally.

I still think we should keep the Reform Commission.  I realize now that requiring a person of a certain office is problematic, but having a commission of volunteers might be useful.

I requested access several weeks ago and I've yet to receive a response. As of now I'm not inclined to see the wiki as a useful tool, but I'll admit that this is at least in part because I'm annoyed that I can't edit it myself.

Have you checked to see if you are able to edit the wiki?  I don't think he usually emails a response.

There will still be a volunteer commission, but I'd rather not be restricted by this law any longer.  Having myself introduced this law, I can assure you, we will progress better without it for the time being.  If we do in fact get the wiki up to date, we can than debate assigning responsibilities.  For now however, for the sake of releaving any restrictions on approving committee members, wiki format, ect, I urge the Assembly to pass this repeal.

Thank you Cincinnatus. I will support this repeal in that case.

I will be voting for repeal of the Northeast Wiki Reform Act.

My view is that the Wiki process should be simplified, and kept as basic as possible while still maintining the necessary function of the Wiki.
