Otoh, I obviously ask Lief to give this proposal the benefit of the doubt like a majority of Senators have clearly asked.

I hope Lief vetoes this.

If senators stand to their votes, there are sufficient to override.

Let me apologize to Lief for not getting back to him. The sabbath will tend to do that.

For Lief (and anyone else): This body, made up of three members, will be appointed by the President and confirmed by two-thirds of the Senate. They will then form guidelines by which to judge whether individuals can be judged to be what we term "zombies" that are detrimental to the game. These guidelines and all future edits must be passed by a two-thirds vote of the Senate. The body may then only judge someone to be inactive and remove them by a unanimous vote. At this point, the ruling may be appealed by the affected individual to the Supreme Court, which may overrule this body for overstepping its guidelines or any other illegal action.

Thank you. Would these people have to be citizens who currently do not hold office? And why does the Senate feel it needs to give away its authority to pass these "guidelines" regarding zombies?

I would say allowing the Senate to delegate these rules to a body that is focused solely on this one task will de-politicize the procedure as much as possible. In addition, the Senate will have to pass the guidelines determined by the body with a two-thirds vote, so it isn't completely divested from the process.

Your first question is a good one and I am not sure of the answer. Who would be able to answer it? I guess you would have to appoint someone who currently holds office, have them refuse to resign their previous position and then take it to the Supreme Court to find out.

They aren't elected, but nominated by the President.

Would these people have to be citizens who currently do not hold office?

Since the Atlasian law prohibits to hold more than one office, yes, they should.

Really? Seems more along the lines of a constitutional delegate to me.

It was established as an office.
