Speaker CollinMatthew proposes the Vice Speaker Selection Act (sorry for all the posts today)
Me too. I'd love to be vice speaker but I don't want to have to download Kik or some other messaging app.
I want my vice speaker to have a third party app and that will be between my vice speaker but I don't think the law should require it.
right now Jonah and I communicate through email which he tends to respond within a couple of hours
I'm not a big fan of section 2.
Excuse me section 3.
Section 3 is removed
Neither do I. But like political said it shouldn't be law.
the Vice Speaker Selection Act
Just fyi to the people who haven't decided on the vote yet: Regardless, Speaker can still fire the vice speaker which is from a different law. So if the second place person doesn't work well with the speaker, they can remove them out of office.
Section 1: This bill will amend the "VC Election Laws and Regulations Act"
Section 2: Whoever gets the second highest amount of votes in the Speakership election will be Vice Speaker until the next Speaker election.
Section 3: Vice Speaker will be required to have a way of contact with the Speaker outside of Show of Hands and will be expected to assist the Speaker when the Speaker can't post anything on a certain day.
Section 4: If the person in second place in the speaker election does not accept the position, then the Speaker will be allowed to pick who they want to be Vice Speaker with approval from Congress.
What if the speaker runs unopposed?
Sorry for all the posts today. Once I write a bill, I can't be patient to wait to post them. Make sure you look at the two bills I wrote today and Political's bill I posted this morning!
Sounds good....when are speaker elections?
Is this your way of firing me...
The speaker election will be on the second week of May I believe. Then the following week after that is the presidential election.
Okay so maybe I'll run for speaker instead of president.
What does speaker do?
Lol no I've had this idea for a while. The reason I made the bill is because if someone chooses to run for the speaker election then they obviously want the roles and responsibility of speaker. This increases the chance of an effective vice speaker I think. When you said you wanted to be EC, I decided to post this.
Controls the account, post bills, and manages the excel files and surveys. Basically controls the whole function of Virtual Congress.
they will just appoint someone
I will say and a lot of previous speakers agree with me. Your SOH life is basically over when you are speaker. My whole first term I posted on my personal account like 10% of the amount of polls I usually did before becoming speaker. Your actual life however isn't dead, a lot of people in my life don't even realize I do this. lol
and I've almost been speaker for a whole year now
So I think I'd be able to do it if I'm elected. How long is a term?
That's really the whole point of the bill lol. I think if you ran and got the second highest amount of votes from congress, then your obviously wanting the job responsibility.
Oh section 3. I understand your opinion but I think someone should have a way to easily communicate to their vice speaker.
I'll strike section 3, I personally prefer it but if that's not what a future speaker would want then I guess that makes sense to strike that section
I don't especially have a problem with you using another app for organization purposes, but that goes way beyond a legitimate requirement. There is more than one way to communicate, and another app is not necessary necessary.
Now that I think about it Section 3 is kind of necessary to be vice speaker..
Okay good! I'll vote yea in that case.
Even though time limit isn't over yet, it's safe to say that the bill passes. President Zackisan can sign or veto by replying to this comment.
I have no problem with that way of communicating for the record.
ha ok im voting yea
