The Lexifore Leeway Act
« on: January 07, 2020, 03:47:01 PM »
WHEREAS El Lexhatx E.4 sets a strict mandatory limit on the immigration process where a prospective citizens' application is to be terminated if a citizenship application is not lodged with The Chancery after 40 days of the examination period beginning, and

WHEREAS sometimes a prospective citizen needs a little more time to settle in and become engaged, and

WHEREAS sometimes a little more time is needed for people to get to know each other, and

WHEREAS a recent case has shown that while rejecting an application too late doesn't really matter much, rejecting one too early may cause an issue, and

WHEREAS the law, oddly, doesn't make an explicit provision for terminating an application when the prospective never, ever shows up in the first place, so

THEREFORE be it enacted by the Ziu assembled that El Lexhatx E.4 is rewritten as follows:

An examination period shall begin with the prospective citizen’s first posting to Wittenberg after an introduction by the Interior Minister. At any time at least fifteen days after the beginning of the examination period, any current citizen of Talossa may petition the Secretary of State requesting that a Royal Grant of Citizenship be issued to the prospective citizen. If no such petition is laid before the Secretary of State within the first sixty days of the examination period, the examination period shall end, the immigration process for the prospective citizen shall be terminated, and their Wittenberg account shall be disabled. In addition, if a prospective citizen fails to ever make a first posting to Wittenberg within thirty days of their introduction by the Interior Minister then the immigration process for the prospective citizen shall be terminated, and his Wittenberg account shall be disabled. Furthermore, whenever an immigration process is terminated then the Interior Minister shall notify the nation and the prospective citizen of the termination, and shall post a notification to the effect on Wittenberg.

The changes are:

1. The mandatory limit for a Lexifore (LEX.E.4) changed from 40 days to 60.

2. A new limit of 30 days for when a prospective never makes a first post on Witt in the first place.

3. Removing the requirement for the SoS to notify following termination and making it the duty of Interior (The SoS hasn't done this for donkey years, so basically this last change is a 'make it say what we do instead of a do what we say' sort of thing).
