I had been under the impression that the Lt. Governor was the presiding officer (that was my intention when I proposed the Assembly several months ago), but it appears that provision wasn't included in our Constitution. Blame Xahar.

I decided not to put it in.

Congratulations, Mr. Speaker.  You may want to change your display name.

(Much as I like my current one, it's going away on Friday when I take office.)

Mideast Fair Election Act

Section 1:

In situations where the Governor improperly words or incorrectly opens the voting booth for ballot referenda, constitutional amendments, and elections, the ballot will be shut down immediately by the  Judge of the Mideast Superior Court.  All results and votes cast in that voting booth are null and void.

Section 2:

If a voting booth is closed for improprieties, the Governor shall have one week from the opening of the original booth to open another booth on the measure/election/amendment.

I am calling for vote on this bill.

You could always try having an original idea, you know. I don't think they've been banned yet.

Anyway, is anyone familiar with the way legislation gets passed 'round these parts? Other than me, of course.

It's all in the Constitution. Smiley

I support the nomination of Inks as nominee and plan to vote aye.  I believe it would be appropriate as part of the nominating process if there were a 48 hour questioning period, after which I believe we can begin a voting period which will end once all three assemblymen vote.  Of course this will call for a 2/3 vote.

Will someone introduce this:

The Business Administration Investment Legislation in Order to Undermine Turmoil (BAILOUT) Act of 2008:

Section 1:  The regional government of the Mideast shall set aside certain funds not to exceed 3% of the Mideastern budget, to be spent at the discretion of the Governor with oversight by the Speaker of the legislature, for the purchase of "toxic" mortgages from investment bankers.  The government reserves the right to alter the terms of mortgages in a reasonable manner in order to make a profit for taxpayers more likely.

Section 2:  Executive compensation, including salaries, bonuses, and stock options, shall not exceed 120 times the compensation package of the lowest-paid employee.  Any pay past that level will be subject to 75% taxation.

Section 3:  Banks registered in the Mideast cannot carry out both banking and investment functions.  This section shall be called the "Restore Glass-Steagall Provision"

Section 4:  The Mideast shall cooperate with any bailout plan passed by the federal government, but will pursue its own recovery plans regardless of the actions of the Atlasian government.
