SO 2017-73 Repeal of SO#2017-33 ("Parliamentary Journals Act")

Post by Abdoa on Thu Sep 28, 2017 2:15 am

Senate of the Parliamentary Union
SO 2017-73
Repeal of SO#2017-33 ("Parliamentary Journals Act")

NOTING that the position of Chair of Parliament is one of the most important and yet time-intensive positions in the Union;
FURTHER NOTING that since the passage of SO#2017-33 ("Parliamentary Journals Act"), only one such official Journal has been prepared, due to the overly burdensome nature of the compilation process required by law, and that the production has been little used, if at all;
RECOGNIZING nonetheless that such a reference as was required to be compiled by the law in question, if well presented, is beneficial to the transparency of the legislative process;
SPECIFYING that though the repeal of the law in question removes the legal requirement that such a production be compiled, there have in the past been similar unofficial productions, and it is still encouraged for engaged citizens with time on their hands to volunteer their efforts in compiling such similar productions, either under the supervision of a department of government or commission of Parliament, or as part of the functions of a legal Non-Governmental Organization;
CLARIFYING that this repeal is not an un-endorsement of the project set out in this law, but a movement to liberate the government from the overbearing pressure of having to produce the Journal in question once every two months;
BE IT ORDERED as follows;-

Article 1
That the entire text of SO#2017-33 ("Parliamentary Journals Act") be retroactively struck out as null and void.

This bill was a good faith attempt by this body to establish a summary of the written record of our proceedings. However, we must always diligently look back at our work and analyze its successes and failures. This bill, unfortunately, has not been successful. The Prime Minister carries a heavy burden, and this tedious task assigned to the PM is just simply too much work. I would rather see our PM devote themself to their legislative and executive duties rather than record keeping.

I still recognize the need for such record-keeping, and perhaps a new position of the Clerk of Parliament could be made in the future to perform this function, however, as the bill stands now, and with the current state of regional activity, I cannot reasonably support keeping its provisions in place for the time being.

I do co-sponsor this proposal.
