Seeing that second consideration of Resolution 2020-10 has been voted on by all members of the House of Shepherds I make a request under Article IV, Section 3 of our province's Constitution that the voting period be terminated early.

If there is no objection, voting will close early at 6:00AM TST January 12th, 2021.

Is there objection to closing the voting period early?

I was hoping to have a conversation about the bill rather than just an identical revote.  It is unchanged from the version that the Crown was forced to veto.

So as I read this, the general idea is that only members of the legislature should be allowed to introduce legislation, and the impetus is based on a general principle along those lines? Is that something you feel strongly about?

Seeing that 24 hours has passed without an objection, voting is terminated early for second consideration of Resolution 2020-10.
Resolution 2020-10 is approved by a vote of 8 votes in favor, 2 votes in opposition.

Article IV, Section 6 of the Florencian Constitution reads as follows concerning the approval of resolutions vetoed by the Constable:
Quote
If the Constable disapprove a resolution presented by the Governor, then the former shall return it to the consideration of the Shepherds with his objections in writing: and if the same resolution should earn again at least twice as many affirmative votes as negative, not later than the seventeenth day following its return, the Governor shall close the question and promulgate the resolution forthwith, and it shall take effect then; or else he shall close the question and declare it failed, albeit not rejected.

I, Breneir Itravilatx, Governor of Florencia, do hereby note that Resolution 2020-10 has indeed been approved by more than twice as many affirmative votes as negative votes before the seventeenth day of being returned to the House of Shepherds.
Therefore, the veto is overturned. Resolution 2020-10 is promulgated with immediate effect.

Voting has now closed on Resolution 2020-11. It has passed with 8 votes in favor, 2 votes in opposition.

Pursuant to Article IV, Section 6 of the Florencian Constitution I, Breneir Itravilatx, Governor of Florencia, do hereby place my signature for Resolution 2020-11 as duly approved by a vote of the current session of the House of Shepherds.

I send this Resolution for consideration to our Regent since the office of Constable is currently vacant. @Sir Alexandreu Davinescu please advise on your consideration of this Resolution. The deadline for Constable Consideration is 9:00am TST, January 22, 2021. Should the Constable fail to issue an Approval or Veto of the Resolution it will be considered approved.
