Nay to all
Just over half of the governing coalition even bothered to come to vote after a whole 24 hours.
Every day I get more disappointed...
Nay to all
Senators, all amendments have failed and we have begun voting on the Removal of Shadow Positions and Caucuses Act.
Understanding that in both chambers of Thaecian Congress, the positions of Deputy and Shadow Speaker/Chairman both co-exist;
Believing that the position of Deputy has provided more back-up and emergency support to the Speaker/Chairman than the position of Shadow;
Recognising that the positions of Shadow Speaker or Chairman were designed and introduced to compensate for a political climate that was focused on 'majority vs opposition' in the chambers of congress, however that political climate is no longer present;
Considering that if that is the case, then there is a lack of need for official recognition of caucuses and caucus leaders as well
Congress hereby agrees:
i. Repeals LR.027 The Shadow Speaker Act
i. Removes Articles VI and VII from LR.024 The House Procedures Act
ii. Renames all following articles to VII in LR.024 to fit accordingly
i. Removes Article VI from LR.037 Senate Procedures Act
ii. Renames all following articles to VI in LR.037 to fit accordingly
i. As stated in LR.024 and LR.037, due to this bill amending procedures in both chambers of congress, this bill requires a 2/3rds majority in both chambers of Congress in order for it pass
Nay, awful legislation, will destroy the region most likely
The bill has passed and will be sent to the House.
