RESULTS OF THE 1ST CLARK OF THE 56 COSA RELEASED
56RZ1 (Talossa Shall Choose its King Act) FAILS with 90P/77C/33A
After months of negotiation and a contentious election, the planned reform
for the powers and duties of the monarchy fails to garner enough votes. It is
uncertain if the government will pursue further action on this issue.
56RZ2 (The Talossan Criminal Law Reform Bill #1) PASSES with 167P/16C/17A
Several key reforms to the Talossan law codes have been enacted with the
passing of this bill. Namely, the assimilation of certain statutes previously adopted
wholesale from Wisconsin law into native Talossan law. This reform package
targets key statutes regarding classes of misdemeanours and felonies such as
unlawful usage of official Government and Royal seals and emblems and damages
caused by any individual to public records and archives.
OFFICIAL STATE OPENING OF THE ZIU COMING SOON
After a series of delays, the government is poised to begin the official opening of
the Ziu. The matter of who will take on the role of Leader of the Opposition is still
being sorted out by relevant parties. A video of the event will be created for the
national archive and will be provided as soon as it is available.
CRIMINAL LAW REFORM BILL #2 PROPOSED
Following the passage of the first part of a series of law code reforms, this 2nd bill
will specifically target offences perpetrated by individuals who bring Talossa
into disrepute. It contains amendments to current statutes specifically addressing
how the Ministry of Justice and the Talossan Criminal Justice System would act in
situations relevant to such matters mentioned.
PROCEDURAL REFORMS FOR LEGISLATION PROPOSED
Two reform packages have been proposed that would address current standards of
legislation in an attempt to make more efficient how bills are taken on and debated.
Proposal 1 (A Two-Reading System) would require all bills to be reviewed
and approved by el Comità da Redacziun Legislatïu (Legislative Advisory
Committee of Talossa aka CRL) before it is presented for a vote in the general
body of the Ziu.
Proposal 2 (Separate Cosă and Senäts Debates) would decisively separate
the two chambers of the Ziu as it pertains to debating, amending and voting on
bills. It would also allow for the two chambers to potentially create their own
procedures regarding how they would carry on this task.
TALOSSASSISTANT PROGRAMME REVIVED
The Ministry of Interior is encouraging all citizens to participate in the revival of
the TalossAssistant Programme in an attempt to generate more activity and
interactions within the Immigration subforum. Several volunteers have spoken up
and will be assigned to prospective citizens on demand.
