The Tidy up your STUFF Act
« on: September 21, 2020, 08:51:40 PM »
WHEREAS as the new Minister of Stuff it is my duty to review the sections of law that relate to my office, and

WHEREAS in doing so, I found bits that would better off just being repealed, and

WHEREAS most of it was fine, but just needed a bit of spring cleaning and streamlining, and

WHEREAS LEX.D.2.10.1 is old, unused and likely never to be used therefore it just a waste of ink, and

WHEREAS LEX.D.2.10.2 is superfluous as these kind of posts can be created under the provisions of LEX.C.1.1.1 (Permanant Secretaries)

WHEREAS LEX.D.2.10.5 and LEX.D.2.10.6 and LEX.D.2.10.7 could really all just be one paragraph, and

WHEREAS the Prime Ministry and the Ministry of Stuff recognise a need for a secure and central location to hold all the various account access passwords that are out there, so

THEREFORE be it enacted by the Ziu assembled that of El Lexhatx D.2.10 and all of its subsections, which currently read:

Oops.  I've made that exact same typo millions of times. Nearly every time I go to type "its" my fingers bash out "it's". Bad muscle memory or something. A LOT of my edited posts going back years have been because of that same typo.

Fixed. Thanks.

Or the Túischac'h can have something to do for once, besides pomp and circumstance! ;)

And the Mençei!

It would be good to talk to the current Túischac'h and Mençéi, now that we have one of each, as to whether they would be happy with Legislative Janitorial duties; or whether they would like to have a role in choosing one.

I don't think any member of the Cosa has actually voted for a Túischac'h yet. I only see a nomination.
