WHEREAS the organic procedure for submitting bills to be clarked is not very clear, and

WHEREAS Article IX, Section 9 suggests that bills should be submitted to the SoS before the 21st day if the month, and

WHEREAS this is not the way we actually have done it in recent years, and

WHEREAS Article IX, Section 10 does not contain any information that isnt mentioned in other articles of the OrgLaw, and

WHEREAS the current Article IX, Section 6 suggests that proposals may not be submitted to the SoS before spending ten days in the hopper, even when they would have spend ten days in the hopper when the clark is published, and

WHEREAS Article IX, Section 3 states that bills need to be in the hopper ten days before publication in the clark, which seems to contradict section 6 as the publication date is not the date of submission, and

WHEREAS in previous years the chancery has accepted bills for publication when they hadnt spend ten days in the hopper yet, and

WHEREAS this means the chancery may have been acting inorganically in the past few years, and

WHEREAS this is not a very desirable situation, and

WHEREAS the law should reflect the actual procedures, now

THEREFORE Article IX, Section 6 of the Organic Law, which currently reads:

"After his legislative proposal has spent ten days in "The Hopper," the author may submit it.with or without modification or amendment.as a bill to the Secretary of State according to the procedures specified in Article IX: Secs. 8-12. The Secretary of State may, however, refuse to accept the bill if he finds that the bill is so substantially different from its original form as a legislative proposal that it constitutes a significantly different proposal. Upon such a finding, the bill is automatically returned to "The Hopper."

will be amended to read:

"Bills that will be eligible for publication when the next clark is published and have spent at least five days in the hopper may be submitted with or without modification or amendment as a bill to the Secretary of State by the author according to the procedures specified in this article. The Secretary of State may, however, refuse to accept the bill if he finds that the bill is so substantially different from its original form as a legislative proposal that it constitutes a significantly different proposal. Upon such a finding, the bill is automatically returned to "The Hopper." ";

FURTHERMORE Article IX, Section 9, which currently reads:

"Bills shall be submitted before the twenty-first day of the month, to the Secretary of State for consideration by the Ziu. Bills received after the twenty-first day of the month shall be published in the next Clark or postponed for one Clark, at the Secretary of State's discretion."

will be amended to read:

"Bills must be submitted to the Secretary of State more than 24 hours before the publication of the clark. Bills received less than 24 hours before publication of the clark shall be published in the next Clark or postponed for one Clark, at the Secretary of State's discretion.";

FURTHERMORE Article IX, Section 10, which currently reads:

"A bill may be proposed by submitting it to the Secretary of State. A bill thus submitted should be followed by the words "Uréu q'estadra så" (or "Proposed by") and the name of the author(s) and his/their party and home province. The Secretary of State may refuse to accept bills that are not clearly typed or word-processed."
