Seeing no objections, Inks.LWC is duly elected Speaker of the Assembly.

Alright - legislation may now be introduced.  So, if we want to try the Welfare Drug Screening legislation over again, now would be the time to do that.

Re-introduced from the last session (TJ's bill):

Mideast Welfare Drug Screening

Section 1: All adults with prior drug convictions applying for governmental income assistance in the Mideast Region must pass a drug screening free of illegal substances to receive benefits.

Section 2: The cost of the testing is paid for by the individual filing for benefits, but will be reimbursed upon producing a clean test.

Section 3: If the use of an illegal substance is detected on a test, that person is barred from receiving benefits for six months. In the event of a second failed drug test, the person in question is barred from receiving benefits for three years.

Section 4: If an adult filing on behalf of children fails a drug screening, that adult may not receive the children’s benefits, but the benefits may instead be transferred to the children through another adult.

It will be vetoed again unless Section 4 is removed or amended.

I have a question about recalls.

Article 3, Section 5, Clause 1 of the ME constitution says the following:

Quote
Section 5: Recall

1. One-fifth of the People may propose a Recall of any elected or appointed official of the Region.


Now do you think this applies to a Superior Court Judge as well? After all, a Superior Court Judge is an "appointed" (by the Governor) and "elected" (by the Assembly) official. As you may know, our current Superior Court Judge has disappeared in the midst of an ongoing court case. If the constitution allows a recall of the Superior Court Judge, I suggest we either recall Judge HappyWarrior asap or just don't reconfirm him next time the Assembly has the right to do that. If you think the above-mentioned clause does not apply to Superior Court Judges, we should amend the constitution. Thanks for your help. The answer might be obvious to you or I might have overlooked something, but I just want to make sure we're on clear legal ground here.

Car Safety Act

1. Car drivers and passengers are required to wear seatbelts in a moving vehicle. Car drivers and passengers who violate this regulation shall be fined.

2. Car drivers are not permitted to use a mobile phone in a moving vehicle. Car drivers who violate this regulation shall be fined.

3. Children up to the age of 6 years must be fastened in a government-approved child safety seat in a moving vehicle. Guidelines for child safety seats shall be made by the Mideast Department of Transport. In case this clause is violated, the car driver in question shall be fined.

The abortion bill. The Assembly passed an abortion ban a few sessions ago, there was an ensuing court case about it and Judge Happy Warrior left without making a decision.

Somehow I missed that, but yes, a recall would be the proper way to remove a Superior Court Judge.  He is appointed, and therefore, Section 5 applies to him.

Re-introduced from last session (though slightly adapted) to spark activity.

Fellow members of the Assembly, Governor,

our constitution says the following concerning the wiki:

Quote
Article 1, Section 4: The Wiki

1. The Governor shall hold the responsibility of updating the Mideast regional Wiki for all legislation and occurrences during his or her tenure.

2. If appropriate action is not taken within 30 days of the passage of said legislation or occurrence, the Assembly shall choose a member of its body to serve as acting Governor and to assume all responsibilities of the Governor until such time as the Governor has fulfilled the first clause of this section.


I haven't actually realized that until recently, so what are we supposed to do?

I propose the following constitutional amendment because I consider the current wording a bit harsh and the selection of an acting Governor overly complicated:

Quote
Article 1, Section 4: The Wiki

1. The Governor shall hold the responsibility of updating the Mideast regional Wiki for all legislation and occurrences during his or her tenure.

2. If appropriate action is not taken within 60 days of the passage of said legislation or occurrence, the Speaker of the Assembly shall become acting Governor and assume all responsibilities of the Governor until such time as the Governor has fulfilled the first clause of this section.
