La Comità CRL/The CRL Committee / Moderator Update
February 23, 2024, 01:18:43 PM
@Sir Lüc or @Ian Plätschisch
The Seneschal has reshuffled the cabinet and I need to be removed as a CRL moderator and the Baron needs to be re-added. It has been a privilege.

Approved for my part.
@Miestră Schivă, UrN feel free to refine the clauses, if you like.

Whereas, there are currently just two members of the Privy Council (Sabôr), and

Whereas, it is conceivable that a slightly larger Sabôr might lead to more broad-based advice to the Monarch, and

Whereas, adding additional ex-officio members of the Privy Council is one way to expand the Sabôr.

Therefore BE IT ENACTED that El Lexhatx L.7, which currently reads:

Quote7. Among the first acts of his reign the King shall name a Privy Council (Sabôr, in Talossan) consisting of several Privy Councillors (called Guaïrs in Talossan) with whom he shall consult whenever possible on all matters of grave importance to the Kingdom, and whose duty shall be to offer the King the benefit of their individual and collective wisdom and advice. The King shall take care to include in this council those citizens with the longest and deepest connections to the ongoing historical life of the Kingdom, in particular those who are personally familiar with the homeland itself. Should at any time they deem it wise or necessary to do so, Privy Councillors, acting alone or in concert with fellow councillors, may publicly issue a "Letter to the King" about any matter of grave importance to the Kingdom. The Privy Councillors shall serve at the pleasure of the King. Privy Councillors shall be entitled to add the honorific initials "GST" to their signatures, for "Guaïr del Sabôr Talossán."

shall be amended with the addition of the following paragraph:

QuoteThe Seneschál and the Senior Justice of the Cort pü Inalt shall be Guaïrs ex officio.

Whereas, Talossans around the world express their heartbreak and outrage at the death of another Russian democracy activist, Alexei Navalny, and

Whereas, we reiterate our support and solidarity with those in Russia, under threat to their liberty and their lives, as they continue the struggle for an open and free society, and

Whereas, we implore the international community to redouble its efforts to bring Vladimir Putin and his cronies to justice for their crimes against their people and our common humanity.

Therefore, be it resolved that it is the Sense of the Ziu of the Kingdom of Talossa, to publicly express the above-mentioned sentiments on behalf of the people of the realm and its agreement with these words of Alexei Navalny: "Listen, I've got something very obvious to tell you. You're not allowed to give up. If they decide to kill me, it means we are incredibly strong."

Privy Council changes can be achieved by amending statute Title L, I think. According to my review of internal discussions this proposal had significant support on both sides. Everyone knows who I personally recommend as the Designated Successor.

We support a new method of royal succession wherein the Monarch is asked to ensure there are always no less than five appointees to the Sabor (Privy Council). Upon a vacancy on the throne without a Designated Successor, the Ziu selects a new Monarch from the membership of the Sabor. Selection by the Ziu is successful with a two-thirds majority in both the Cosa and the Senats. Approval, by simple majority, is then required by nationwide referendum. A sitting Monarch may choose a Designated Successor from amongst the Sabor who will also need approval under the same process. The Designated Successor may be removed by the same process as the Monarch.
Connected to this, we support King John giving the nation a timeline for a transition for his Designated Successor. Or the instituting of a mandatory retirement age of 75 years for the Monarch of Talossa.

Whereas, the BHAID has over the past few terms made an effort to make small but meaningful contributions demonstrating the generosity and caring of the Talossan people, and

Whereas, Effective altruism (often abbreviated EA) is a contemporary philosophical and social movement advocating "the use of evidence and reason to figure out how to benefit others as much as possible, and taking action on that basis," and

Whereas, Effective Altruism Funds (EA Funds) is a platform for moving money to particularly cost-effective and altruistically impactful projects. The current funds focus on Improving the lives of people living in extreme poverty and improving the lives of non-human animals, and

Whereas, the EA Funds Global Health and Development Fund aims to support funding opportunities that improve the health or economic empowerment of people around the world as effectively as possible.

Therefore, the Ziu authorises the Bureau of Humanitarian Aid and International Development to make a one-time contribution of $50 (USD), to the EA Funds Global Health & Development Fund via the charity Giving What We Can at https://www.givingwhatwecan.org/en-US/funds/effective-altruism-funds

Whereas, during the previous Cosa term the Government passed the Second Talossan Government Transparency Act, and

Whereas, this Act automated the transferral of Witt-based Cabinet discussions to the Archivist with them being available to the public seven-years post-term, and

Whereas, the discussions of the Standing Committee on Organic Law, as a body composed of public officials discussing matters of national import, may also be ripe for a transparent approach and be of historical interest.

Therefore, be it enacted by the Ziu of the Kingdom of Talossa, that El Lex D 8.9.1 which currently reads as:

Quote8.9.1 All internal government communications on Government-owned fora shall be transmitted to the Royal Archives as soon as feasibly possible after the conclusion of that Government's term of office.

is amended to read as follows:

Quote8.9.1 All internal government communications on Government-owned fora, including those of cabinet proceedings, standing committees, or royal commissions shall be transmitted to the Royal Archives as soon as feasibly possible after the conclusion of that Government's term of office.

Whereas, the US state of Ohio was recently sent back to its catchment home of Benito, and

Whereas, this had the unfortunate effect of reducing the catchment area of the Kingdom's least populated province, and

Whereas, this also occurred without Vuodean consultation which to paraphase Douglas Adams 'made a lot of Vuodeans very angry and might be regarded as a bad move."

THEREFORE, be it enacted by the Ziu of the Kingdom of Talossa, that Article 7.6 of Title E of El Lexhatx, which reads:

7.6. VUODE PROVINCE. Talossan citizens living in the following areas shall be assigned to Vuode Province: the City of Milwaukee (WI) and all suburbs of Milwaukee, which lie to the north and east of the City of Milwaukee; and the U.S. states of Connecticut, Illinois, Indiana, Iowa, Michigan, Missouri, New Jersey, New York, and Pennsylvania; and the Mexican States of Aguascalientes, Baja California, Baja California Sur, Chihuahua, Coahuila, Durango, Guanajuato, Jalisco, Nayarit, Nuevo Leon, Sinaloa, San Luis Potosi, Sonora, Tamaulipas, Queretero, and Zacatecas. Internationally, the nations of Algeria, Chad, Libya, Mali, Mauritania, Morocco, Niger, Tunisia, and Western Sahara.

is amended by inserting "Minnesota," after "Michigan," to read:

7.6. VUODE PROVINCE. Talossan citizens living in the following areas shall be assigned to Vuode Province: the City of Milwaukee (WI) and all suburbs of Milwaukee, which lie to the north and east of the City of Milwaukee; and the U.S. states of Connecticut, Illinois, Indiana, Iowa, Michigan, Minnesota, Missouri, New Jersey, New York, and Pennsylvania; and the Mexican States of Aguascalientes, Baja California, Baja California Sur, Chihuahua, Coahuila, Durango, Guanajuato, Jalisco, Nayarit, Nuevo Leon, Sinaloa, San Luis Potosi, Sonora, Tamaulipas, Queretero, and Zacatecas. Internationally, the nations of Algeria, Chad, Libya, Mali, Mauritania, Morocco, Niger, Tunisia, and Western Sahara.

FURTHERMORE, Article 7.8 of Title E of El Lexhatx, which reads:

7.8. FLORENCIA PROVINCE. Talossan citizens living in the following areas shall be assigned to Florencia Province: the Wisconsin counties of Ashland, Bayfield, Brown, Burnett, Douglas, Florence, Forest, Iron, Lincoln, Langlade, Marinette, Menominee, Oconto, Oneida, Outagamie, Price, Rusk, Sawyer, Shawano, Taylor, Vilas, and Washburn; and the U.S. states and territories of Alaska, American Samoa, Colorado, Guam, Hawaii, Idaho, Kansas, Minnesota, Montana, Nebraska, Nevada, North Dakota, Northern Marianas Islands, Oregon, South Dakota, Utah, Washington, Wyoming; and the Canadian provinces and territories of Alberta, British Columbia, Manitoba, Northwest Territory, Nunavut, Ontario, Saskatchewan and Yukon Territory. Internationally, the nations of Brunei, Bouganville, Fiji, Indonesia, Japan, Kiribati, Marshall Islands, Micronesia, Nauru, North Korea, Palau, Papua New Guinea, Philippines, Samoa, Singapore, Solomon Islands, South Korea, Taiwan, Tonga, Vanuatu.

is amended by removing the word "Minnesota," to read:

Whereas, recent circumstances have highlighted the need for the Avocat-Xheneral to have this option as well.

Whereas, presently the King, Seneschal, and Secretary of State can request an advisory opinion from the Cort pü Inalt, and

Whereas, the Ziu may also want to request an advisory opinion ahead of its considerations.

Therefore, be it enacted by the Ziu of the Kingdom of Talossa that Article VIII, Section which currently reads as:

Article VIII, Section 6
QuoteUntil such time as inferior corts are established, a Judge may sit as a nisi prius cort in all civil and criminal matters.

No decision or order issued by an inferior cort or nisi prius cort shall bind a coordinate cort.

The decisions or orders of the Cort pü Inalt shall bind all lower corts according to the doctrine of stare decisis provided that that the panel was composed of no less than three Judges after necessary recusal. The Cort pü Inalt may, as it deems appropriate, issue decisions or orders that are non-binding provided that it explicitly states that intention in the decision or order.

A nisi prius cort or an inferior cort deviating from binding precedent must state so with clarity and refer the matter for appellate review.

Notwithstanding any contrary proscription, the King, the Secretary of State, or the Senechal may refer an issue to the Cort pü Inalt for an advisory opinion provided that any such panel reviewing the position is composed of no less than three Judges after any necessary recusal, there lacks a live case or controversy that would otherwise determine the issue, and there is a reasonably need for resolution of the question.

A matter arising under the Covenants of Rights and Freedoms is appealable as of right to the Cort pü Inalt. In all other instances, the Cort pü Inalt may not be compelled to exercise its appellate authority. However, when declining to do so, the Cort pü Inalt must issue an order declaring such, and no such declaration shall be deemed as the Cort pü Inalt adopting or setting as binding precedent the appealed from decision or order.

The Cort pü Inalt, and any other cort existing under this article, shall interpret all matters through the lens of the Covenants of Rights and Freedoms.

Any Judge that is a named party in a matter shall recuse himself or herself from hearing any and all parts of the matter.

Hello Mr. Secretary @Sir Txec dal Nordselvă, UrB

I wanted to follow up on legislation passed by the last government, RZ18 - National Skills and Social Connections Survey Act. Thanks to your help the last Government was able to get started on this project.

Specifically:

QuoteWhereas, the relevant section of El Lexhatx C.1.2.2.2 is as follows: "Other questions on the Talossan Census shall be identical to the questions on the last census. These questions may be changed by the Chancery, either of its own volition or on request from the Seneschal, but any changes shall be approved by the Ziu, without needing to go through committee. These questions will be marked as optional, and at no time shall a citizen be forced or required to respond to an optional question.", and

Whereas, the Chancery has recently articulated an interpretation of existing privacy laws which allow for government use of the National Census for this effort.


Therefore, the Office of the Seneschal submits this request to the Chancery to include the following additional questions on the next census and submits same to the Ziu for approval.

I believe this was achieved using a Google Form? If so, how would the current Government go about getting this data as allowed by this interpretation for the purposes of further developing the programme?

Whereas, it has come to the attention of learned officials that a certain section of Title D may need clarification, and

Whereas, when it concerns the ability of the Seneschal do any and all cabinet jobs it may indeed be prudent.

Therefore, be it enacted by the Ziu of the Kingdom of Talossa, that El Lexhatx Title D 2.1 which currently reads as:

QuoteD2.1. The Seneschal (in english, Prime Minister), heading the Prüma Ministrà (in english, Prime Ministry), is responsible for the overall operation and performance of the government, and shall perform all duties assigned to his office by Organic Law. All other Cabinet officers are appointed by the Seneschal, serve at his pleasure, are responsible to him, and derive their powers from him. Accordingly, anything that any Minister can do (officially), the Seneschal may (if he desires) do himself.

is amended to read as follows:

Quote2.1. The Seneschal (in english, Prime Minister), heading the Prüma Ministrà (in english, Prime Ministry), is responsible for the overall operation and performance of the government, and shall perform all duties assigned to his office by Organic Law. All other Cabinet officers are appointed by the Seneschal, serve at his pleasure, are responsible to him, and derive their powers from him. The Seneschal may perform any official act on behalf of his ministers. The Seneschal may also at any time designate a deputy minister to be Acting Minister, until the Seneschal or the Minister for whom they are acting publicly declare otherwise, or the Minister for whom they are acting is dismissed.

Whereas, presently the Government's chief legal advisor, the Avocat-Xheneral, can't request an an advisory opinion from the Cort pü Inalt, and

Whereas, it seems reasonable for the Government's chief legal advisor to have the ability to also seek advice from the Judiciary.

Vuode / Compensating Vuode for its catchment loss
January 25, 2024, 02:57:43 PM
Quote from: Glüc da Dhi S.H. on December 21, 2023, 07:45:43 AMa) Vuode is already the province with the fewest citizens b) There is no compensation provided for the reduced catchment area

Hello Vuodeans,

I have consulted with TNC members on this and heard no objections. So I now consult with you.
I agree with the concern expressed by Senator da Dhi above and so wanted to see if there is interest in receiving the US state of Minnesota from Florencia as a compensation. I tried to seek a compensation that was at the same level (American subnational entity) as that which was lost. And initially looked to the Benitian area but there is no other similar subdivision.

Should there be agreement from Vuodeans then I will prepare a resolution in the Florencian Nimlet for consideration.
