WHEREAS 50RZ27 having previously been passed by the Ziu and vetoed by the Crown,

WHEREAS our time in Talossa is better spent arguing over whether prima facie modification, not material modification, is more relevant than something essential as needing to sleep, thereby SETTING THE PRECEDENT THAT THE EXACT LETTER OF THE LAW MATTERS;

WHEREAS if the Ziu plans to make legislative intent a thing in Talossa, it should really start filing a section of Acts clearly identified as "legislative intent" to be filed in the database for easy reference;

WHEREAS the Member of the Cosa has sought to reintroduce an act previously passed but vetoed, but with necessary modification to render this act unnecessary, but now finds it necessary to also hopper this act, to bring everything IN COMPLIANCE WITH THE EXACT LETTER OF THE ORGANIC LAW, hereby introduces the following secondary legislation, as borrowed and paraphrased from certain foreign documents in "[o]rder to [pass] a more perfect" act, hereby re-introduces this Act, having previously been passed by the Ziu in the 50th Cosâ under 50RZ27, and previously subjected to the Crown’s veto, is is concurrently reintroduced in the same Clark of this secondary legislation, as to ensure it meets THE COMMA OF THE LAW pursuant to Article X, section 6 of the Organic Law, whereby a bill may become law upon passage by a simple majority of the Ziu in a subsequent term;

WHEREAS this act is only effective upon passage of the primary legislation, and if this act is subject to a veto, it will be reintroduced, verbatim, in the next term, and so forth shall each act be hoppered and clarked until something better is offered;

THEREFORE without any reference to any provision in the Organic Law proscribing such an measure, as none exist, the Ziu hereby modifies the Bar Reformation Act, in style and clarification, having now been rehoppered and passed in the same Clark, and as such, el Lexhatx as § G,11 shall read as:

T he Officers of the Royal Household shall have no fixed terms of office, and shall not be removed from office by the dissolution of the Cosa. The Officers of the Royal Household are appointed and removed by the King on the recommendation of the Prime Minister. The four exceptions to this are that the Secretary of State shall be appointed by the Prime Minister acting alone and may be removed by law; the Burgermeister of Inland Revenue shall be named in the same way as the Secretary of State; and the Commissioner of the Civil Service, who shall be appointed by the King, for a two year renewable term, after being recommended by a legislative civil service committee and approved by a two-thirds majority vote in the Cosa and a majority vote of the Senäts in favor of appointment. The Chancellor may be removed by the King on the recommendation of the Senäts.

FURTHERMORE, the following section is amended to the el Lexhatx to read as § G,11:

11. The National Bar of Talossa is hereby established.
