Basically, this is part three of the Senate's 'committee experiment.'  The resolution basically has the same purposes as the previous ones: to promote interest in our nation's legal system and judicial affairs by debating relevant legislation in the committee firsthand.

Nothing I am reading here seems controversial. I'll gladly support this so long as there will be enough
Senators interested to fill the assigned seats, and no worries for us to contend with regarding one or
more members of this body having more than one committee assignment at a time.

We may end up with Senators on more then one committee. I would rather have active Senators pulling double duty then to have the dead weight drag the committees down.

Ya, I agree completely. But are Senators allowed to do so? For some reason I was under the impression that we are not, which is the only reason I brought it up in the first place I guess.

I don't think Senators are going to be allowed to chair multiple committees, but they will still be allowed as members on them.

There are no regulations regarding limits on how many committees one can serve on, nor how many committee chairmanships one can hold, in current law or procedure. Though in practice, we will seek to avoid having a Senator hold multiple chairmanships.

It isn't necessary, no one has talked about the bill in the last 24 hours and the minimum debate time expired yesterday afternoon.


Senators this bill is now at final vote, please vote Aye, Nay or Abstain.

I will give this one more day, since the National Security Committee will be occupying the membership thread for two mores days atleast, and I don't like it when bills pass by 1 vote and four people haven't done their jobs. Tongue
