Military Structure Reform Act

Author: Brototh & Islonia
Sponsor: Marvinville
As Amended By: Sunipi, Islonia, Marvinville, Vedenmark & Porfloxia

Preamble:

Understanding the Thaempirial Army has become a vital part of the region's culture, foreign affairs, and recruitment,
Wishing to ensure said vital part of the region is run with the upmost efficiency,
Noting the errors throughout the entire original bill,
Believing the best way to resolve these problems is to replace the Military Commission Act,

Congress hereby agrees,

  • Section I - There shall be a Thaempirial Army, which shall have the duty of protecting the interregional sphere and contributing to Thaecian interests abroad. The Thaempirial Army shall consist of the Prime Minister, The Minister of Defense, subordinate officers and loyal soldiers.

  • Section II There shall be an established Minister of Defense, informally known as the Tagus, nominated by the Prime Minister,

    • Section IIa Whose duties it shall be to create military policy consistent with the Government's foreign affairs,

    • Section IIb To engage in Military affairs, domestic, interregional and;

    • Section IIc To maintain and coordinate a Thaempirial Army.

  • Section III - The Minister of Defense must be confirmed with a simple majority vote in the Senate.

  • Section IV - The Minister of Defense can be removed by either:

    • Section IVa - Unilateral dismissal by the Prime Minister,

    • Section IVb - A two thirds vote in the Senate.

  • Section I - The Thaempirial Army shall have the Prime Minister as its Chief in Command and the Minister of Defense as the operational most senior officer.

  • Section II - The Thaempirial Army shall have the responsibility to, where appropriate: uphold interregional military engagements, provide military assistance to allies, protect and forward collective Thaecian interests abroad and domestically.

  • Section III - The Executive shall whenever making use of the Thaempirial Army for any purpose inform and interact with all members of the Senate as equal partners. The Prime Minister as the highest officer shall retain the right to block or command military operations and has the responsibility to do so where it would be productive for collective Thaecian interests.

  • Section IV - The Senate retains the right to veto the Thaempirial Army's participation in any military operation by way of a simple majority vote. Such a vote may be conducted in private in order to retain operational security so long as all Senators are able to access debate (if there is one) and the vote. Should the veto vote succeed, the Thaempirial Army must cease and desist engagement in the operation immediately. If a simple majority of all voting senators who did not abstain vote to veto an operation prior to the Thaempirial Army engaging in an operation, the Thaempirial Army must not engage in the operation until a majority of all voting senators who did not abstain vote to allow the Thaempirial Army to engage in the operation.

  • Section V - The Thaempirial Army must inform the Senate of any operation it engages or plans to engage in as soon as possible. The Thaempirial Army may not engage in an operation that is not listed below unless it has informed the Senate of the operation at least 12 hours prior.

    1. Tagging,

    2. Detagging,

    3. Chasing,

    4. Training in a region(s) specifically created for Thaempirial training operations,

    5. Delegacy transition and;

    6. Liberation/siege,

  • Section VI - If the Prime Minister, Minister of Defense, and Chairperson of the Senate agree that the nature of the operation requires it, the Executive may choose not to inform the Senate about an ongoing operation during the first 12 hours of said operation. After either said operation has ceased, or the 12 hours have elapsed (whichever comes first) a senior military official must brief the Senate on that operation.

  • Section I - The Thaempirial Army shall never undertake a griefing operation.

  • Section II - Griefing shall be defined as refounding of an occupied region, closing of over 200 embassies in a single occupied region, applying passwords to an occupied region, or the ejection/banjection of natives of occupied regions.

    • Section IIa - A native shall be defined as a resident of a region who is not residing in the region for a primarily military purpose. Natives who provide military support to would-be liberators of their region are still guaranteed the protections of this article.

  • Section III - Members of the Thaempirial Army shall report griefing by any Thaecian or by a member of another organization with which the Thaempirial Army is collaborating with the Minister of Defense. Should a member of the Thaempirial Army become aware of griefing in these circumstances but knowingly fails to report it, they may be expelled from the Thaempirial Army.

  • Section IV - If the Thaempirial Army has taken part in an operation that griefs a region, the whole organization will be required to withdraw from the operation as soon as possible. A Thaempirial Army member who defies the order to withdraw from the operation in question shall be expelled from the Thaempirial Army and shall never be readmitted.

    • Section IVa - The Thaempirial Army must inform operation participants that the Thaempirial Army has a zero tolerance on griefing prior to it participating in any operation that has any reasonable possibility of involving griefing. If a participant declares their intention to grief, or it is disclosed that the operation is of a griefing nature, the Thaempirial Army shall not take part in that operation unless said participant agrees not to grief, or said participant is removed from the operation.

  • Section V - This article shall not apply to regions that are of a bigoted ideology in nature or regions designed specifically for training operations.

    • Section Va - The Senate may also, at the request of the Prime Minister or Minister of Defense and by a motion passed with a two thirds majority in the Senate, exclude any region from the protections afforded by this article; this vote may take place in private to ensure operational security provided all Senators are able to access the vote and debate stage (if the latter does occur).

  • Section I - The Thaempirial Army may not admit anyone who has been tried and found guilty of treason or espionage. If a member of the Thaempirial Army is found guilty of treason, they will be immediately expelled. They may only be allowed back into the Thaempirial Army if a Court with the legal power to do so overturns a decision to find them guilty.

  • Section II - A nation may be removed from the Thaempirial Army at the will of the Prime Minister or Minister of Defense should they think it is beneficial to do so.

  • Section III - A nation can appeal their removal to the Prime Minister and the Minister of Defense. If they both approve the reinstatement, the nation will be reinstated, provided they still fulfill the requirements in Section I. If the appeal is rejected, said nation may only appeal again after a period of 2 (two) months.

  • Section IV - The Prime Minister and Minister of Defense have permission to create any ranks underneath the Minister of Defense that they may wish and promote and demote nations as they wish.

  • Section I - Should the Minister of Defense be found to have failed to inform the Senate, they shall be guilty of having committed an offence at the level of a Felony, as defined by LR 044, and should be punished in the same manner. Provided that the Prime Minister knew of the operation, and vice versa, they shall be considered complicit in this and shall be punished in the same manner.

  • Section II - Any nation violating the following articles and sections shall be guilty of offences at the following levels, as defined by LR 044, and should be punished in the same manner:

    • Article III Section III - Felony

    • Article III Section IV - Treason

  • Section III - Should a military official lead the Thaempirial Army into an operation that they have been informed will be of a griefing nature without any way of changing this intent, they shall be guilty of having committed treason, as defined by LR 044, and should be punished in the same manner.

  • Section IV - Should any nation be otherwise found in violation of this law, the appropriate authorities shall be made to rectify the mistake immediately; should they not, the High Court should issue a court ruling determining the correct, legal course of action.

  • Section I - The passage of this bill constitutes the repeal of L.R. 044 Military Commission Act.

  • Section I - If at the time of the passage of this bill there is an incumbent Secretary of Defense, said incumbent Secretary of Defense will continue to occupy their position as the Minister of Defense.

  • The Ministry of Defence shall be exempt from the restriction of a nation holding multiple ministries as laid out in LR 048.

  • At the conclusion of the current Prime Ministerial term at the time of this bill's passage, this Article will be repealed by this clause.

We have begun debating on the Military Structure Reform Act(as amended by Senate)

Ive been keeping up with this in Senate, I see no reason to get object

I will propose an amendment this evening.

Article II

Section V - The Thaempirial Army must inform the Senate of any operation it engages or plans to engage in as soon as possible before it takes place. The Thaempirial Army may not engage in an operation that is not listed below unless it has informed the Senate of the operation at least 12 6 hours prior.

Tagging,

Detagging,

Chasing,

Training in a region(s) specifically created for Thaempirial training operations,

Delegacy transition and;

Liberation/siege,

Section VI - If the Prime Minister, Minister of Defense, and Chairperson of the Senate agree that the nature of the operation requires it, the Executive may choose not to inform the Senate about an ongoing operation during the first 12 18 hours of said operation. After either said operation has ceased, or the 12 18 hours have elapsed (whichever comes first) a senior military official must brief the Senate on that operation.

As the author I personally don't see the point for or against this amendment. Personally I would prefer if we could just pass it and get it out of the way but not a big deal.

Pretty much what brototh said. The amendment A is largely just timing changes, and "As soon as possible" in most contexts will be the same as "Before it takes place".

This amendment mainly just changes the senates amendments, which will get us voting in a loop. I dont want to spend the end of term in a loop.

I'll propose some amendments tomorrow

In my eyes Amendment A seems absolutely pointless. For starters the all it does is change the wording of one section. This is completely useless and has no reasoning at all, the other changes I agree with. I don't object to this amendment but I don't support it
