What's the point in having speaker elections of they have so many rules to the point that they would all have to do the exact same shit

It's just a feature that would make the VC more easy to understand for some and a summary could be nice to some who like to look at that stuff. It's okay that you're against it, but what else is mandatory of the Speaker that you dislike?

I just like the idea of them each being able to bring their own style. I may be overreacting but I don't see how this needs to be a bill, maybe just a request or a petition of sorts.

I mean that's what this is practically. I mean if people don't want to see the feature added, just vote nay. That's what's great about democracy

The thing is it will become law, ALL future speakers will HAVE to do this.

Well it doesn't look good right now that it'll pass, but I just think it's a good idea to keep everyone in the VC involved and everyone knows what's going on, especially if they have been absent for a little bit

I believe this is a good practice. I'm not sure it's appropriate to enact it through legislation, but regardless of the fate of this bill I hope Speaker Collins will begin this routine.

Stop making so many rules on what the speaker has to do. Let he/she do what they want, if we don't like what they do, we'll vote them out.

I'd prefer biweekly as the minimum requirement. Sometimes life gets busy.

And then i saw the rest. Yes, I like it. I do think some sort of repercussion for failure to do this should be spelled out.
