The first Clark of the 47th Cosa got off to a late start due to the prolonged electoral certification and produced only two bills out of the opening gates. The first bill, Clarked by Secretary of State Martì-Paír Furxhéir (RZ1 - Fixing the Electoral Commission) is a bill aimed at revising the role of the Electoral Commission to one of verifying votes as opposed to certifying votes. The bill’s aim, according to its author, is to prevent a lengthy certification process from disrupting “normal operations of the Kingdom.” The bill garnered concern from both sides of the aisle specifically related to the “non-fully automated process” which implies, according to Sir Alexandreu Davinescu, that “having MPF as the SoS [would be] essentially an Organic requirement.” Former Seneschal Glüc da Dhi raised concerns that the bill was a “less than ideal solution.” He went on to argue the point that others (including former Distain Carlüs Xheraltescù, have also made in recent Cosa debates that giving the EC earlier access would be a better alternative.
The other bill in the Clark, hoppered by former Seneschal Glüc da Dhi (RZ2 - The Move Like Jagger Act) attempts to make minor changes to the distribution of citizens in the provinces. Among the bill’s provisions are the correction of earlier statute to include the eight provinces of Talossa and to allow changing of provincial assignment if a Talossan moves more than 1,000 kilometers from his or her current home. The only real debate generated by this bill was a discussion between Eiric S. Bornatfiglheu and Deputy Minister of Immigration, Ián B. Anglatzarâ. Bornatfiglheu appeared to want drastic revisions to the provinces by defining catchment areas along international borders whereas Anglatzarâ seems to like the current system that promotes “the opportunity for US and European citizens to actually meet each other in real life.”
The status of both bills is uncertain as few votes have so far been made on the Clark.
