I don't necessarily have a problem with these rules. However, the naming conventions contradict our Constitution.

This is obviously something we need to pass ASAP.

I agree. Since this is necessary, relating to rules and such, can I bring this up for a vote now. (That's not in the rules, but, on a technicality, since we haven't passed the rules yet, can we just do that this one time?)

As we don't have any rules then yes we can hold a vote on this.

I think we should hold a vote on it.

Ok, I motion for a final vote on adoption of these rules.

I am not a huge fan of these rules, name issue aside. I do want to at least have the discussion of the legislature having full autonomy and the Governor not taking over as Speaker at any time. (I also think we should have a Lt. Governor, but this is not the place for that) we need to have a clear separation of executive and legislative branch. Under these rules, if I abstained or voted for myself in the Speaker's race, the Governor would have full control of all 4 slots of legislation.

That is designed in part to ensure that if the speaker is inactive we can move debate along. This has been an issue in the past.

I'd prefer if we just had the 'dean' of the Assembly take on that position, not the governor.  I'm also not a fan of standardized naming, but that's minor.

How would the 'dean' be determined? Most senior member (other than the speaker)? Meanwhile, is it okay for me to introduce the other proposed bills (before this is fully approved/voted on)?

We could decide based on the order of who swore in first, anyways you can go ahead and introduce the other proposed bills.

^I support it as well. Unless other amendments are proposed, the amended version of the bill goes up for a vote when 24 hours have passed since Pikachu proposed the amendment.
