SOUTHERN CHAMBER 19.1 PROPOSED RULES PACKAGE. TO BE INTRODUCED IMMEDIATELY FOLLOWING THE ELECTION OF A SPEAKER.

Rules and Procedure of the Southern Legislature - TITLE I

Quote
You must be logged in to read this quote.

Rationale: The Queue, mentioned in later sections, is never defined, leaving open a dangerous loophole - under the current rules, a Speaker desiring to be a partisan could arbitrarily define the Queue however they liked. Defining it here eliminates the loophole and keeps our tradition of a non-partisan speaker intact. Whenever possible, especially with the Speaker being non-partisan, more than a majority should be required to remove them, thus explaining the threshold change for any future seven member chamber with respect to for-cause firings. In accordance with what the Atlasian House has, I also added a motion to expel other members by a 2/3 vote. The Original Clause 7 is eliminated for being duplicitous. Clause 8 is substantially modified, the chamber at large has no place in mandating the exact format and timing for elections within a caucus, especially for positions that we do not have much need for nowadays, beyond a few common sense restrictions that I left in.

Quote

Rationale: Since the Speaker's term ends upon the arrival of a Friday, there's no need to postpone the beginning of a Speaker Election to the next Monday. Also brought back the role of an Elected Deputy Speaker.

Quote

Rationale: The Noticeboard thread has not been managed by the Governor in quite a while, so updated to reflect longstanding practices.

Quote
You must be logged in to read this quote.

Rationale: Simple Clarification that the Deputy Speaker can start threads as well, since this section isn't technically part of the powers of the Speaker as established earlier. Prevents the Speaker from arbitrarily reordering the queue. Clarifies that the Statute designation is also used if a veto is overridden.

Quote

Rationale: Clause 2 is modified to clarify the nature of the regular slots and to specify that 2 slots are reserved for the governor, in accordance with the practices of last session. Also, since the Speaker is always the presiding officer, we don't need to say that multiple times, so fixed that up.

Quote

Rationale: Section V is good as-is. Section VI is duplicitous and is thus removed - Amendments are covered within Section V.

Quote
You must be logged in to read this quote.

Rationale: Sections are renumbered. Our practice during at least the last 2 sessions has been 48-hour maximum votes and to close votes when all have voted, so modified the rules to reflect what we actually have been doing. The rest is good as-is.

Title II of the proposed rules begins here. It should be considered on a separate thread from that used for Title I (above post).

Was debating pushing this in part to prevent a repeat crisis, but given that it condemns the Presidential Ticket I've endorsed in part, I'm withdrawing it for now. It will be brought back before you can say "Transfiguration" if this crisis restarts though.

This is identical to the pending S.19.1-8 in all but name. The name change can be considered as an amendment to that, which I would support. As this re-introduction is duplicative and therefore frivolous, it will not be brought to the floor pursuant to Section V of the Rules.

Explanatory Statement: The first part of this is modeled after S. 2322 of the 115th Congress, which passed the US Senate. The US House adjourned before the bill could be properly taken up. The second part comes from proposals from Mr. Reactionary.

With nothing left in the queue or on the floor, the Southern Chamber of Delegates stands in recess until further notice.
