Amendments to SO 2016-3 Parliamentary Procedure Act

Article I: Introduction

In order to add further specificity to the Parliamentary Procedure Orders, we, the Parliament of the Union.

Article II: Amendments

Section A: Co-sponsorship

The following article is to be inserted after the current Article IV. Constitutional Amendments and the remaining articles renumbered accordingly:

“Article V. Co-sponsorship

The following procedural order applies to all bills in Parliament:
a) At any point when a bill is on the Drafting Table or in the Debate Hall, any Senator may request to be added to the bill as a co-sponsor.
b) The Prime Minister will then include that Senator as a co-sponsor on the next version of the bill.

Section B: Emergency Legislation

The following article is to be inserted after the current Article IV. Constitutional Amendments and the remaining articles renumbered accordingly:

“Article VI. Emergency Legislation:

The following procedural exception applies only to proposed Acts of Parliament:
a) If three Senators and the Prime Minister concur that a bill on the Drafting Table is of such urgent importance to the survival and wellbeing of the Union, that it must pass directly to the Voting Chamber, steps b), c), d), e), f), g), h), and i)  in Article II of this Act may be waived.

Section C: Expedited Vote Quorum

Article II Clause e is to be amended to read as follows:

"e) If such a motion gathers the endorsements of at least three senators, the Prime Minister may, at his discretion, suspend the debate and move the bill to the voting Chamber section of the forums where the senators will vote for two days or until all the senators have voted within that timeframe."

Section D: The Speaker of Parliament

Article I is to be amended to read as follows:

"Recognizing that there is no formal procedure for the working of this Parliament, we set out these Orders to govern our procedure. However, in areas of jurisdiction for which these Orders have no specific provisions, the Prime Minister, as Speaker of Parliament and supreme procedural authority within Parliament, has broad discretion to proceed in any manner as seen fitting for that office and for Parliament as a whole, subject to no questioning of his discretion apart from his removal from office by Motion of No Confidence."

Article III: Conclusion

We, the Parliament of the Union, do hereby enact this document and its provisions as an amendment to SO 2016-3 and ask that its provisions are carried out in a timely manner.

I propose that Article II, Clause E be amended to increase the required quorum to three Senators for a Motion to Pass to a Vote.
