50RZ4, The Raising Some Revenue Act and Amendment

WHEREAS The registration fee for parties contesting elections to the Cosâ was recently halved, and

WHEREAS This is all well and good, but we need some more revenue streams if the government ever wants to start paying for its own web presence, and

WHEREAS It is not unreasonable to expect successful Senate candidates to pay a small fee as well, since they partake in the election process just as much as political parties do

THEREFORE, Section 13 is added to Article IV of the Organic Law, which reads:

The Secretary of State may request that Senators-elect pay a small fee before taking their seats. The fee shall be set by law and uniform for all Senators-elect.

FURTHERMORE, upon the ratification of the above amendment in a referendum, Lex.B.9, which currently reads:

The Secretary of State, or his appointed agent, shall charge, as prescribed by the Organic Law, a registration fee of 6¤40 (six louise and forty bence, equivalent to $10 USD) to each political party in forthcoming elections. Any Party or Parties which fail or refuse to pay the fee shall be deemed not registered.

shall be amended to read:

The Secretary of State, or his appointed agent, shall charge, as prescribed by the Organic Law, a registration fee of 6¤40 (six louise and forty bence, equivalent to $10 USD) to each political party in forthcoming elections. Any Party or parties which fail or refuse to pay the fee shall be deemed not registered. The Secretary of State, or his appointed agent, shall also charge, as prescribed by the Organic Law, a fee of 3¤20 (three louise and twenty bence, equivalent to $5 USD) to all Senators-elect, which must be paid before a Senator-elect takes his or her seat.

FURTHERMORE, upon the ratification of the above amendment in a referendum, Lex.B.12.3 shall be added, which reads:

In order to appear on the Chancery ballot for an election to the Senäts, candidates must register their candidacy with the Secretary of State.
