Post by Nassau-Windsor on Tue May 10, 2016 8:19 am

Constitutional amendment: Ending limitations on debate numbers

An Act to make an end to a specific, limited, number of Bills that can be reviewed or debated at the same time.

WHEREAS Our Constitution has regulated that Parliament can only review one Bill at any time;

WHEREAS We believe that Parliament has the ability to regulate their orders and procedures themselves;

WHEREAS We think that the quality of the debate on Bills is not influenced by the quantity of Bills being debated;

BELIEVING that by restricting Parliament to debate only a specific, limited, number of Bills at any time, the Executive Branch of government might influence the proceedings of the Legislative Branch;

FURTHER BELIEVING that by restricting Parliament to debate only a specific, limited, limited number of Bills at any time, the legislative process of Our Region slows down unnecessary;

GIVEN that at the moment of writing this Bill, the limited number of Bills that can be debated at any specific time is one (1) Bill;

BE IT ENACTED by the Minister of Development, by and with the advice and consent of Parliament and the Cabinet, in this present assembled, and by the authority of the same, as follows:-


Article 1
Section I of Article II from Our Constitution shall hereby be repealed.

Article 2
There will be added a new Section to Article II from Our Constitution that shall read as follows:-

"Parliament shall have the right to debate Bills at any time from the moment they are brought to the Debate Hall. There shall be no restrictions on the total number of Bills debated at any same time."

I am not quite sure whether I agree with the intent of this bill. I think that if we are debating more than one bills, the chance of confusion is greatly increased, both for the PM who has to moderate, and for the debating and voting senators. However, this is just a first impression, I could change my mind...

I support this bill in its entirety. Its intent is clear; it seeks to allow for the parliament to debate on multiple bills at a time. This is not impossible or impractical. Having two or three or four active threads at once isn't going to be a disaster; in fact, it could actually increase senatorial activity.
I also endorse the bill.

I know, but as the current rules apply, we can still only have one bill at debate at a time Wink.
