FOLLOWING the Regional Honours Act 2016, in which is stated that Medals of the Region are to be regulated by Acts, and that Ministers have the power to institute new Medals;

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:-[/b]

Article 1

Article 2
The GSM can be awarded by the Prime Minister and on his behalf the Minister of Development.

Article 3
The GSM can be awarded do any member of the Region, or foreign members who contributed to Our Region.

Article 4
Anyone may send a letter to the Prime Minister or the Minister of Development to ask that another member shall receive the GSM. No member can nominate himself to receive the GSM.

Article 6
Recipients of the GSM are permitted to show the ribbon of the GSM in their signature. The King of Arms is responsible that recipients are provided with the ribbon.

Article 7

3. Have represented the Region on NationStates in an excellent way for a considerable amount of time.

Article 8
Proof of the actions stated in article 7 are to be forwarded upon application.

I do like this bill as it will encourage meaningful activity and contribution by offering the opportunity to gain special recognition.

EDIT:
However, this bill carries too much of a punishment.  6 months to perm is an insanely harsh punishment for wrongly wearing an official ribbon.  I cannot support this bill as it stands.  A suitable punishment would be a 30-day to 60-day.
