ARTICLES OF IMPEACHMENT

A RESOLUTION.


Whereas, the Constitution provides that the Senate “shall have the sole Power to adopt and try Articles of Impeachment” and that the President “shall be removed from Office and disqualified from any office under the Republic of Atlasia for a period not exceeding two years" on Impeachment for, and Conviction of, Treason, Bribery, or other high Crimes and Misdemeanors; and

Whereas, Oregon Blue Dog (AKA OBD), President of the Republic of Atlasia, has in fact committed a multitude of high crimes and misdemeanors in blatant disregard to the laws of Atlasia and his oath of office;

Be it resolved, That Oregon Blue Dog (AKA OBD), President of the Republic of Atlasia, is hereby impeached for high crimes and misdemeanors and is hereby subject to all constitutional penalties prescribed by the Constitution and that the attached articles of impeachment be exhibited to the Atlasian Senate; and

Be it further resolved that these articles of impeachment exhibited by the Senate of the Republic of Atlasia be in the name of itself and of the people of the Republic of Atlasia, against Oregon Blue Dog (AKA OBD), President of the Republic of Atlasia, in maintenance and support of its impeachment against him for high crimes and misdemeanors.

AN ACT
To restructure the Game Engine to create a GM team


Section 1: Title & definitions
i. The title of this Act shall be The Game Engine Restructuring and GM Team Creation Act. It may also be cited as "The GM Team Creation Act".
ii. As it appears in this legislation, “non-playable entity” shall refer to all parties, including but not limited to foreign governments and non-state actors, minor agencies, state and municipal officers, and public interest groups, which may be presumed to exist within the context of Atlasia, the functions of which are not performed by any person registered with the Census Bureau.

Section 2: Separation of powers
i. All powers and prerogatives which shall by grant of Congress in the game engine reside, shall be divided among the several officers of the same, that is between the members of the game moderation team.

Section 3: Game Moderation Team
i. The president shall appoint three (3) members of the game moderation team (henceforth referred to as "the GM team") with the advice and consent of the Senate.
ii. The GM team shall have power, except where limited elsewhere by this legislation:
(a) to simulate the effect of domestic and foreign legislation of the government of Atlasia and of the several regions;
(b) to simulate the actions of non-playable entities;
(c) to simulate domestic and global events;
(d) to be the final arbiter in all questions of the reality of events which occur during their tenure;
(e) to be the final arbiter on the reality of the status quo with respect domestic and global conditions.
iii. The word of the GM team, once spoken, is Canon, and may not be revoked by their successor.
iv. Members of the GM team may be removed from office according to the same provisions set in place for the impeachment of executive officers.
v. A majority of members of the GM team may not hold any other elected or appointed office in either the Federal or Regional Governments.

Section 4: Internal Deliberations of the GM team and Public Updates
a) Any major decision by the GM team regarding information given to government officials in but not limited to the National Security Council, shall be put to an internal vote if any member of the team objects. A majority of votes shall be required to pass a major decision. Should a vote come to a tie either due to vacancy or absence, the most senior sitting member of the GM team shall break the tie. No major decision's vote may come to an end with less than 2 members of the GM team voting.
b) Any public update as a whole shall be voted on by the GM team with the same rules described in Section 4.a with the internal vote count being made public at the end of the update. A majority of members of the GM team must provide confirmation within the Game Engine publication thread that the vote count is valid.
c) Should any member of the GM team post a public update without a vote count or without verification from a majority the other members of the team, or give information to government officials without approval from a majority of the team, it shall be considered an impeachable offense.

Section 5: Repeal of old legislation
i. All previous Acts of Congress as they relate to the structure, powers, and officers of the game engine are hereby repealed.

This is my "rough framework" for a potential GM team. I'm aware there's likely some issues I've missed, but I believe this would help relieve a lot of the issues we've seen with GMs getting burned out. We can work out the kinks during debate on the floor. I've included the possibility for a sitting elected official to be on the team so there is not a shortage of players to offices, but I do not think a majority should be elected officials so that they can't abuse the office to try and score political wins.


EDIT: Removed references to the CG that I missed. That office would be abolished under this.

Senate Resolution
To amend the Constitution to make the Department of Federal Elections and Registrar General Constitutional Officers.

Be it Resolved in the Atlasian Senate Assembled, that upon ratification by 2/3rds of the Regions, the constitution shall be amended as follows:

Quote
The Securing Our Elections Officers Amendment

Section 1: The Departments of Federal Elections and Registrar General

Article IV, Section 4, shall read as follows:
Quote
Section 4. Elections Administration
1. The Department of Federal Elections shall exist for the purposes of administering Elections.
2. The Office of Registrar General shall exist for the purposes of maintaining the census list.
3. These two positions may be held simultaneously by the same person.
4. The Senate may regulate these entities through appropriate legislation.
5. Appointments to these positions shall be conducted in accordance with the provisions of Article 4: Section 2, but the President shall remove said occupants of these offices only with the concurrence of a majority of the Senate.

Quote from: Amendment Explanation
This constitutional Amendment moves the origination authority of the Department of Federal Elections and the Registrar General from Presidential Executive Order to the Constitution, thereby eliminating the ability of the President to abolish these entities, assume them, or recombine them with another cabinet office. Further, it grants the Senate the power to regulate these offices through legislation, while restricting the ability of the President to unilaterally fire either the SoFE or the RG.

People's and Region's Senate

Reintroducing this in preparation for the next session.

4.) Expulsion proceedings shall be initiated if:

a.) a Senator has not posted anything on the Atlas Fantasy Government board for 168 consecutive hours and has not posted a valid Leave of Absence (then the time covered by that LOA shall not count toward those 168 hours, but periods of inactivity before and after the LOA shall count as a continuous period, provided there are no interceding posts).


I hereby motion to expel Mr. Reactionary and DeadPrex for neglecting their responsibilities.

Deadprez made a post in a senate thread less than 72 hours ago.

SENATE BILL

To allow the GM to revoke past canon under exigent circumstances


SECTION I. SHORT TITLE.

This bill shall be referred to as the Responsible Excision of Timeline Canon in case of Overt Nonsense Again Act, or, for short, the RETCON Again Act.

SECTION II. PROVISIONS.

SB 110-12, the Game Engine Restructuring and GM Team Creation Act, is hereby amended as follows:

Quote from: F.L. 21-19§3
iii. The word of a game moderator, once spoken, is Canon, and may not be revoked by them or their successor unless a request to revoke canon status from a specific game engine proclamation or set of proclamations is approved by eight-ninths of the full senate.
Introducing this as the GM Team Creation act accidentally repealed the RETCON act when I didn't mean for it to.
