Comprehensive Legislative Procedure Reform Act



Noting: The current framework of the legislative process in inherently flawed especially with regards to the use of and application of the executive veto on legislation

Acknowledging: That (C.O.22) Schyzo vs. America JB, Xadrya accentuates the flawed nature of this process in which the defendants were tried on the basis of definition rather than on behavior

Realizing: The intended use of the veto power provided to both the Supreme Chancellor and the Founder is a means of rejecting legislation and therefore preventing it from becoming law

Understanding: That contradictory definitions established under current law result in the present framework propagating two conflicting processes by which legislation becomes law

Noting: This bill seeks to unify disjointed legal definitions and incorporate standard statutes into the Constitution

Hereby:

  1. Repeals The Senate and Legislation Definition Act L.R. 29

  2. Repeals The Premier Veto Act L.R. 22

  3. Amends Article I. Section I. Clause VII. to read: "The Founder shall have the power to veto any piece of legislation. "

  4. Amends Article I. Section III. Clause VII. to read: "Legislation shall be defined as any bill passed by the Chamber of Representatives. Legislation may be categorized into Standard Bills and Constitutional Amendments."

  5. Adds the following to Article I. Section II:

    1. "V. A piece of legislation, with the exception of Constitutional Amendments, shall become law having received the signature of the Supreme Chancellor. Should the Supreme Chancellor fail to sign a piece of legislation into law within two days of it being presented to him/her, the legislation shall be become law in like manner as if he/she had signed it"

    2. Accordingly renumbers the succeeding sections and clauses when necessary

  6. Amends Article I. Section II to read: "The Supreme Chancellor shall have the power to veto any piece of legislation."

  7. Adds the following to Article I. Section III:

    1. "VIII. The Chamber of Representatives shall have the power to: create any laws governing the rights and behaviours of The Citizenry, create any laws governing the functions and form of the government, edit or remove any previously passed laws, change diplomatic statuses in relation to other regions (with a 2/3 majority vote), and call an investigation into the Supreme Chancellor or any of the Ministries falling under the Supreme Chancellor within the Executive Branch (with a 1/2 majority vote that may be brought by any Representative without need for written legislation)"

    2. "X. The Chamber of Representatives may override a veto with a two-thirds (2/3) majority. The legislation shall become law unless challenged by the Founder or Supreme Chancellor to a public vote within two days after a successful veto override vote."

    3. Accordingly renumbers the succeeding sections and clauses when necessary

  8. Amends Article I. Section IV. Clause VI. to read: "The Court of Magistrates shall have the power to overturn laws which they deem unconstitutional given majority consensus among the Magistrates. This decision may be contested by any Citizen of Aukumnia whom must give ample evidence. Should the Head Magistrate deem the presentation of evidence sufficient, a public vote, initiated by the Founder, shall be called in which a majority vote in support of the contest shall reverse the decision of the Magistrates."

  9. Amends Article IV. Section I. Clause III. to read: "This amendment must receive the approval of two-thirds (2/3) of Chamber of Representatives in order to proceed to a public vote."
