(Small PSA to anyone who just read my Nimlet vote and thought, "Why does this bastard have time for the Nimlet but not for me and the messages that I have sent him over two weeks?": I have scheduled 5 hours on Sunday to catch up on everything Talossan, continue movement on several projects, and carry on my other official duties. This Nimlet vote has a hard deadline that I did not want to miss. I will respond to everyone/everything on Sunday!)
Cheers,

I think you may have made a typo, sir. You voted on 2020-07 twice. You probably meant to vote PER on 2020-08?

I'd like to be a pedant and finagle with the wording of 2020-08, more so that it conforms with the same style/voice of other areas, but it's probably fine all the same.

I vote PER on 2020-07, and abstain on 2020-08.

Indeed I did. I have corrected the typo. Thanks.

Resolution 2020-09

WHEREAS, there is a constant need for the updating of Florencia’s information on the Kingdom’s official website and TalossaWIKI, and

WHEREAS, there are some Florencians who may not frequent Wittenberg—or the above-mentioned sites—as much as others necessitating the need for alternative forms of informing them on provincial activities.

THEREFORE the Governor or someone appointed by the Governor shall be responsible for drafting and disseminating an Annual Government Gazette consisting of the following information via email in cooperation with the Chancery:
1) all provincial legislation approved in the session immediately preceding (and of the current session) the Gazette’s publishing, and
2) a list of all members and their party affiliation in the House of Shepherds, and
3) a list of current provincial officials (Governor, Senator, and Constable).

The period of review will close at 9:00AM TST on December 5th, 2020.

Resolution 2020-10

Constitutional Amendment on Article VI, Section 2 (Resolutions of the Nimlet)

Whereas, it is common for the right to introduce legislation to be restricted to actual members of that legislative body, and

Therefore, Article IV, Section 2 of the Florencian constitution which currently reads:

Quote

All legislative measures of Florencia having the effect of statute or bearing the force of the law shall be made and passed by the Nimlet only in the form of a resolution. The right to introduce a resolution of the Nimlet shall be reserved exclusively to the Constable and to the members of the House of Shepherds, and all such resolutions shall be introduced solely in the House of Shepherds for their consideration.

is amended to read:

Quote
Section 2. Resolutions of the Nimlet.
All legislative measures of Florencia having the effect of statute or bearing the force of the law shall be made and passed by the Nimlet only in the form of a resolution. The right to introduce a resolution of the Nimlet shall be reserved exclusively to members of the House of Shepherds, and all such resolutions shall be introduced solely in the House of Shepherds for their consideration.

I rise to resubmit this petition to the Sovereign @King John and his Regent @Sir Alexandreu Davinescu

I rise to submit a petition to the Talossan Sovereign, @King John

Article III, Section 1 of the Constitution of Florencia reads as follows:

Quote
Section 1. The Constable.

The Sovereign of Talossa is represented in the province and attends to provincial affairs through a Constable, or in Talossan “Cunstavál”, who shall be appointed in accordance with the Organic Law.

If the office of the Constable be ever vacant or generally unattended, the Governor shall petition without delay that the Sovereign appoint a new Constable and shall repeat this petition so often as may be necessary to effectuate the appointment.

The Sovereign shall assume all powers and duties of the Constable while the latter office be vacant.

The position of Constable is currently vacant and this petition is submitted as an early effort to ensure we have an active and cooperative relationship between the Sovereign and Florencia's provincial government.

Therefore, as Governor, I officially petition @King John to appoint a new Constable.

This is the first submission of this petition to the Sovereign.

Resolution 2020-11

Constitutional amendment on Article III, Section 6 of the Florencian Constitution

Whereas, this resolution is intended to amend the Florencian Constitution so that the Governor may resign some seats while remaining a member of the House of Shepherds and therefore continue as Governor.

Therefore, Article III, Section 6 of the Florencian Constitution which currently reads:

Quote
Section 6. The Governor.
The executive powers of the province shall be vested in a singular Governor, or in Talossan “Governadéir”, who shall:
(a) Be the presiding officer of the House of Shepherds, and have by right of such office one mandatory and equal seat there;
(b) Resolve all parliamentary questions in the House of Shepherds, and take care that their business be undertaken in good and honorable manner;
(c) Keep and make publicly available the text of all laws of Florencia, in conjunction with the Scribery of Talossa;
(d) Take care that the laws of Talossa and Florencia be enforced faithfully; and
(e) Represent the province in any and all judicial actions to which it be a party.
He may declare the continuation of the current Nimlet through any single General Election whenever the same be occasioned by the premature dissolution of a Cosa, but only if such declaration be made within one week of the aforesaid dissolution; and no such continuation may be made for two consecutive General Elections. If the Governor choose to vacate any seat which he may hold in the House of Shepherds, the same shall be construed as resignation from the office of Governor.

is amended to read:

Quote
Section 6. The Governor.
The executive powers of the province shall be vested in a singular Governor, or in Talossan “Governadéir”, who shall:
(a) Be the presiding officer of the House of Shepherds, and have by right of such office one mandatory and equal seat there;
(b) Resolve all parliamentary questions in the House of Shepherds, and take care that their business be undertaken in good and honorable manner;
(c) Keep and make publicly available the text of all laws of Florencia, in conjunction with the Scribery of Talossa;
(d) Take care that the laws of Talossa and Florencia be enforced faithfully; and
(e) Represent the province in any and all judicial actions to which it be a party.
He may declare the continuation of the current Nimlet through any single General Election whenever the same be occasioned by the premature dissolution of a Cosa, but only if such declaration be made within one week of the aforesaid dissolution; and no such continuation may be made for two consecutive General Elections. If the Governor chooses to vacate all seats which he may hold in the House of Shepherds, thus no longer being a member of the House of Shepherds, the same shall be construed as resignation from the office of Governor.

The period of review will close at 9:00AM TST on January 3rd, 2021.
