I appreciate the offer, Mr. Representative, but the House of Representatives does not vote on treaties with foreign nations - that power is exclusive to the Senate.

A BILL

To establish the Office of the Wikimaster General
This seemed like a good idea to me, so I went ahead and issued an executive order establishing this position (renamed the National Archivist). For future reference, the power to establish new executive offices rests with the president, not Congress (per Article IV, Section 2 of the Constitution).

I support Scott's proposal 100%, but given the Supreme Court's interpretation of the Bill of Rights, oughtn't this be proposed as a Constitutional Amendment?

The Court has ruled that all ballots must be counted unless the voter (a) does not meet minimum posting requirements; or (b) is inactive. I don't see how an official language for voting is consistent with that ruling (though, as I say, I agree with the substance of the bill).

^ Article III, Section 5 should read "they disapprove," not "they disapproves"

Did you guys know we don't have term limits? Tongue  Please feel free to change the grammatical layout and such
Yes, that was intentional. The Constitutional Convention felt that, given the persistent scarcity of active and qualified officers historically, it was unwise to prohibit the election of an otherwise desirable candidate on grounds that he had already been chosen twice before. The decision to eliminate term limits was approved by an overwhelming majority, and with support from members of both parties.

Regardless, I look forward to the debate over this measure on the floor of the Senate.

With the following Amendment being introduced in the Public Consultation and Legislation Submissions Thread, I invoke Article 2.2 of the Senate rules, allowing the PPT to remove legislation which is "functionally impractical, frivolous, or is directly unconstitutional". With the "Democratization of the Executive Amendment" fulfilling all three of those, and as Princeps Senatus I declare it removed from the Senate floor.

(I've always wanted to wield this power)
Constitutional amendments can be unconstitutional? Wink

Regardless, I wholeheartedly approve of this exercise of discretionary imperium.

Constitutionally, Congress has no authority to create or reorganize executive departments; that power lies with the president.

Under the Atlasian Constitution? IRL only Congress can reshuffle agencies they created by act of law.  Or do you just mean the Office of Drug Free Schools which is the only President created agency on the list?
I mean under the Atlasian Constitution (specifically Article IV§2(iii)).

Who gives out busts to laborites and forgets Truman. I mean really! Clearly taking money from Henry Wallace's PAC.
