Ratification Regionalization Amendment

Article VII, Section 1 of the Constitution shall be amended to read the following:

1. The Senate, whenever two-thirds of its number shall deem it necessary, shall propose amendments to this Constitution, which shall be valid to all intents and purposes as part of this Constitution when ratified by three-quarters of the Regions.

2. Regional governments shall choose, in accordance with their lawmaking process, from the following methods of ratification for all Constitutional Amendments:

2a. Referendum in which passage is determined by a simple majority.
2b. Passage through the lawmaking body of the Region.
2c. Signature of the Governor of said Region. Regions may not use this method, unless it is part of a process that includes either 2a or 2b also.

Regional governments may select a combination of the above methods as well.

3. Procedure for ratification of Amendments may only be changed by the lawmaking body of a region once every 60 days.

4. Regions may re-attempt or later rescind ratification of Amendments at their discretion, determined through the lawmaking body of the region, as there shall be no deadline or expiration of Constitutional Amendments passed by the Senate. Regions may not rescind ratification of Amendments that have come into full effect.
