House Bill 1: Basic Framework Act

Purpose: To ensure order, discipline, and efficiency in the House of Representatives.

Article 1: Voting

1. Votes on bills shall require a simple majority to pass.

2. Votes on repeals shall require a 2/3 majority to pass.

3. Votes on bills shall remain open until at least half of the House has voted or until 2 days have passed.

4. Votes on repeals shall remain open until at least 2/3 of the House has voted or until 3 days have passed.

5. Once a bill has passed, it will be presented to the Founder for signature. Once the Founder has signed the bill, it is law. If the Founder chooses not to sign the bill, the House can overturn this decision with a 2/3 majority vote, automatically passing the bill into law.

Article 2: Speaker

1. The House shall select a Speaker from amongst its members by a 2/3 majority vote who shall be responsible for convening and supervising sessions once a week.

2. In the case of an emergency, the Speaker shall be responsible for holding an emergency session. These sessions shall only differ from regular sessions in that they may be held in a week that has already had a session. Such emergencies include the Founder failing to sign a bill, a Constitutional Crisis or severe misuse of power, or an external threat.

3. The Speaker shall be responsible for holding votes on bills and counting the votes.

4. The Speaker shall be responsible for correcting any grammatical errors in a bill as well as format errors before holding a vote. If it is unclear what any section of the bill is attempting to say, the Speaker must act for clarification from the author of the bill.

Article 3: Sessions

1. Once a week, the House of Representatives shall hold a session in which bills may be presented and voted on.

2. These sessions will last for a minimum of 12 hours and a maximum of 3 days. Votes may end outside of this time frame as ordained in §1.3 and §1.4.

Article 4: Bill Format

1. A bill shall have the following format:

House Bill [number of bill]: [title of bill]

Purpose: [the purpose the bill is trying to achieve]

Article [article number]: [article name]

[clause number].
