SO 2017-09

Amendments to SO 2016-03 ("Parliamentary Procedure Orders Act")

Article I: Introduction

To further clarify Parliamentary Procedure, we, the Parliament of the Union, do hereby amend SO 2016-03 ("Parliamentary Procedure Orders Act").

Article II: Amendments

Section A: Co-sponsorship

We hereby move to insert the following after Article II, Clause A and to re-label the Clauses that come after to reflect the insertion:

"b) i) 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.
ii) 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

We hereby move to insert the following after Article IV and to re-label the Articles that come after to reflect the insertion:

"Article V. Undefined Procedures:

In situations where no Procedure is defined by this Document, the Constitution, or other Acts of Parliament, the Prime Minister, as Speaker of Parliament, shall have broad discretion to proceed in a matter in which they see fit, however they must act in accordance to the spirit of the Laws and the Constitution and is still subject to potential removal via a Motion of No Confidence by the Senators."

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.
