RZ20 - The Communication with the People Bill

WHEREAS the Government recently set up a survey aimed to go out to all Talossans;

and WHEREAS there currently exists no database of emails intended to reach all Talossans for reasons of State, only one set up to send out political advertisements at election time;

and WHEREAS the Seneschál had to have recourse to her database of emails as held as Party leader, which only covers about 1/3 of Talossans;

and WHEREAS the Secretary of State was doubtful whether this was legal or whether it would be legal for him to send out survey emails on his segment of the "electioneering" database;

and WHEREAS there has to be a means for the Government to communicate with all citizens (who haven't opted out) on official business; or at least that this is a higher priority than the ability of Party leaders to "spam" voters at election time;

there BE IT ENACTED by the King, Cosâ and Senäts in Ziu assembled that the following section C. be added to El Lexhátx: The Seneschál may request on behalf of the Government that a given communication shall be sent out by the Chancery to the email address of every citizen who has not "opted out" as provided in section below. The Chancery shall grant this request if, in the opinion of the Secretary of State, the following provisions are met: Such communication shall pertain wholly to official Government business. Such communication may not include publicity for, or any other business pertaining to, any political party or candidate for election. Such communications are not sufficiently frequent or repetitive enough to qualify as "spam". Citizens may "opt out" of receiving such communications by making a request to the Chancery.
