BILL

Establish the Department of the Interior and Amend the Constitution

The people of Redmont, through their elected Representatives in the Congress and the force of law ordained to that Congress by the people through the constitution, do hereby enact the following provisions into law:

  4. This Bill was co-sponsored by Rep. Rurge.
  5. This Bill is supported by DER Secretary Teuntje1234567.

2 - Reasons

  1. The DER is in a desperate need of a facelift. Today, there are criticisms of the department’s inactivity and lack of identity. Not to mention, the “Recreation” portion of the DER’s name is antiquated.
  2. This rebranding of the DER into the DOI not only modernizes the department’s branding, but also gives it the flexibility to add more responsibilities in the future.
  3. Supply management/coordination is more fitting with the natural resource vibe of the DER/DOI compared to the DCT, whereas it does not have much to do with construction or transportation.
  4. In alignment with the transportation side of the department, this bill gives the DCT the responsibility of managing postal systems within the Commonwealth of Redmont. This serves as a replacement for its previous tenders responsibilities

The new Mercedes with black G Wagon

The way you front, it was all for rap

I was 28 years young, twenty mill' in tax

Bought a couple of mansions just for practice

Five hundred in jewelry, chain was magic

Never had it in public, late reaction

50K to cousins, post a caption

Pray none of my enemies hold me captive



So what? Paralyzed, the county building controlled us

I bought a Rolex watch, I only wore it once

I bought infinity pools, I never swimmed in

I watched Milqy buy four cars in four months

You know the family dynamic's on repeat

The insecurities locked down on PC

I bought a .223, nobody peace treat

You won't doo-doo me, I smell TNT

West got him a Porsche, so I got me a Porsche

Paid lottery for it, I ain't want it in portions

Poverty was the case

But the money wipin' the tears away
 
Significant modernization and I fully support this bill and its sweeping reforms. Also glad the recreation part of the name is being removed as I never really thought it fit - aye
 
Especially glad the DPA managing elections is changing as it was always out of place - aye

a. 5 - Cabinet

Amend the Executive Standards Act


The people of the Commonwealth of Redmont, through their elected Representatives in the Congress and the force of law ordained to that Congress by the people through the constitution, do hereby enact the following provisions into law:

1 - Short Title and Enactment
(1) This Act may be cited as the 'Reasonable Acting Secretaries Act.'
(2) This Act shall be enacted immediately upon its signage.
(3) This Act has been authored by: Rep. nnmc
(4) This Act has been co-sponsored by: Sen. xEndeavour

2 - Reasons
It is important that when a secretary must resign, their acting replacement can quickly take over the duties to avoid any operational disruption in the executive branch. The requirement that acting secretaries have immediate Senate confirmation is an unnecessary burden. Most countries IRL acknowledge that by allowing acting secretaries to serve without confirmation for a short time period, in which time a nomination can be made for a permanent replacement. Redmont ought to adopt such a system.

3 - Amendment

Change:
5 - Cabinet
(1) Any person which holds roles functionally equivalent to a department Secretary must be approved by the Congress. This includes “Acting” Secretaries.

To:
5 - Cabinet
(1) An Acting Secretary may serve in that role without Senate confirmation for a period of up to 14 days, starting from when they assume the office of Acting Secretary. After that time period elapses, the Acting Secretary must receive Senate confirmation if they are to continue in that role.
