BTW

REMEMBER:

To pass article of impeachments: 3/5 majority is needed.

If this is passed, then I would preside the trial: 2/3 majority

Prefiling

Amendment to the senate rules

Quote
(...)

3.) 40 25 threads about legislation may be open for voting and debate simultaneously.

a.) The first 36 20 open threads shall be open to all legislation initially regarding bills, resolutions or constitutional amendments. If the sponsor already has two or more pieces of legislation on the Senate floor, legislation from Senators who do not shall take priority until all such other legislation is completed. Each senator has the right for maximum two bills simultaneously on the floor. If a senator doesn't have two acts on the floor, their slots shall be void. The PPT shall be the Presiding Officer for these open threads.

b.) The twenty-first thirty-seventh slot shall be reserved for national emergencies and administered by either the President of the Senate or the PPT

c.) The twenty-second thirty-eighth slot shall be reserved for budgetary legislation and administered by either the President of the Senate or the PPT.

d.) The twenty-third and twenty-fourth thirty-ninth slots shall be reserved for the President of the Republic of Atlasia and administered by either the President of the Senate or the PPT or

e.) The twenty-fifth fourthieth slot shall be reserved for public submissions and shall be introduced by the President of the Senate.

(...)

ADDENDUM: This change to the senate rules aims to ensure that everyone who wants to introduce the bills shall have their bills heard, and not be impacted by queue packing. The increase in slots will for the most part in practice not be used given typically not every senator introduces legislation. Everyone has the right to have 2 bills on
the floor at every time possible
Laki, are you sure it's not going to deteriorate the quality of the debate ?
