Thread for discussion of Article E, Legislative Branch. There is some discussion on this topic in the Article D discussion thread, and other places, regarding whether the governors are executive or legislative. This thread can be used for deciding whether we need more than just a vote of the citizens to pass new laws, or if we need some other, presumably smaller body to also vote. Here is the starting point article from the general discussions thread, which assumes the citizens are the legislature, with no Senate. Code: Article E. The Legislative Branch will be the Congress, will consists of the entirety of the citizenry and is responsible for the drafting of new Laws. Here is the suggestion from Epimethius Code: Article E. The Legislative Branch will be the [i]National Assembly[/i], will consists of the entirety of the citizenry and is responsible for the drafting of new Laws and the election of executive, legislative, and judicial officials.[i] 1. The Vice or Deputy President shall preside over the Assembly and the drafting of laws.[/i] Ravensfire offered up this example, which keeps the existing definition of a senate formed by the governors. Code: Article I. Legislative Branch The Legislative Branch will be formed of two houses. The Senate will be formed of the Provincial Governors, each of whom are responsible for the care, management and use of the cities and lands of a province through the setting of build queues, allocation of laborers on tiles, the use of population rushes and drafting of soldiers. Each Governor shall determine any policies and procedures needed to carry out their duties. The Congress will be formed of the entirety of the citizenry and is responsible for the drafting of new Laws.
