I actually agree quite a lot with the amendments passed by ICH and don't particularly want this motion to ping between both chambers indefinitely. Nay to all.

EDIT: Upon further reflection and discussion, I have decided to change my vote on Amendment B to Aye.

I believe this to be a rather sensible bill, allowing for more flexibility in Government. Therefore, I will be supporting it when it comes to a vote.

This is a good bill because it will make everyone’s tenure neither too long nor too short

I support this bill and will vote for it.

Seems a bit unneccessary to have a whole Constitutional Amendment that doesn't actually change a single thing. I don't see the point of having a referendum over this either.

Well intended, I’m sure. It serves no practical purpose, and changes nothing. Minor semantic changes do not warrant a constitutional amendment. If it were something other than changing “60 days” to “two months,” if it weren’t for the preceding use of “approximately,” it would be fine to change.

Vote is open on the following bill.
