End Abuse of Civil Forfeiture Act

1. The practice of civil asset forfeiture shall only be permitted in conjunction with a successful criminal conviction of the subject(s) for a relevant crime, and its extent shall be regulated by the presiding judge.
2. If such a conviction is successfully appealed, the subject(s) shall be entitled to fair recompense.
3. The preceding protections shall not apply to the areas of maritime or customs law.

(both of these are drafts that i expect will change substantially during debate, but i think starting a conversation on these topics, at least, is necessary)

An Amendment
To define the commencement of terms to the elected offices of the Federal Government.

Title: The Term Commencement Amendment

Section 1: The Presidency

The President and Vice President shall take office at 12:00 PM Eastern Standard Time, on the first Friday in the month following the ticket's election to the office.

Section 2: The Senate and House

1. The Senators shall take office at 12:00 PM Eastern Standard Time on the first Friday after the completion of all elections by the regions for that class have been completed.

2. The members of the House of Representatives shall take office at 12:00 PM Eastern Standard Time on the first Friday following the completion of the House elections.

Not sure how much I like section 2, and I am fine with it or both being altered. We do need to get this set in stone because the last set of standards were based on one time application of the previous constitution and no further standards exist for this for future elections. At least that is my understanding of it.

A House Resolution
To acknowledged and honor the dedication of former President AHDuke99 to the creation of this chamber and the bicameral legislature

Title: The President AHDuke99 Memorial People's House Resolution

Section 1: The House shall hence forth refer to itself internally and in all communications as The People's House of Representatives in honor of the name formulated by the distinguished President to signify the chamber's purpose and mission.

Section 2: Members shall be encouraged to refer to themselves as "People's Representatives".

Contrary to what this may sound like, this has nothing to do with Marxism or Communism. Tongue It is however a shameless aggrandizement of TPP lore, which many TPPers themselves often undervalued and under-appreciated.
