SC filing from Han Held and the 23rd RA Sept 7, 2015

Post by Lilith Ivory »

Aliasi Stonebender, Dean of the SC, and colleagues in government of the SC:

Whereas the Omnibus New Region Expansion Act gives the right of the RA to legislate the plan of a new sim through process of public development;
Whereas the Omnibus New Region Expansion Act specifies that the RA has the power to approve a plan, ask for revisions to a plan, and delay moving on to Phase II (I. 4.a-c);
Whereas the Omnibus New Region Expansion Act states that "Regular progress reports shall be delivered to the RA for review," thus implying the right of the Representative Assembly to review progress and building done on the developing sim;
Whereas the Omnibus New Region Expansion Act grants the power to plan public development of a new region to the Representative Assembly, not the Chancellor or his agents;
Whereas the Constitution of the Confederation of Democratic Simulators grants the Representative Assembly the power to "represent the views of CDS citizens" and the prerogative "to pass laws and [...] to promote the city and [to] perform long-term planning" (I.1);
Whereas the Constitution of the Confederation of Democratic Simulators grants the Chancellor the power "to coordinate and plan community projects" (II.1) and "to determine the use to which any and all land in CDS shall be put" (II.2);
And, Whereas the Chancellor and his agents constructing the new Friedsee have changed entire sections of the plan for the new sim, specifically terraforming and parcel-layout, approved in the 22nd term of the Representative Assembly, in a process not found in Omnibus New Region Expansion Act;

Therefore, I petition the Scientific Council to:
— judge the legality of significant alterations to the development plan for the new region "Friedsee," approved by the Representative Assembly on 19 April 2015, for the correct and lawful procedure to make significant alterations to the approved plan;
— compel the Chancellor and his agents to propose alterations to the development plan for the new region "Friedsee," approved by the Representative Assembly on 19 April 2015, to the Representative Assembly pursuant to the legislative and planning powers of the RA in the Constitution and Omnibus New Region Expansion Act;
— compel the Chancellor and his agents to abide by the development plan for the new region "Friedsee" approved by the Representative Assembly on 19 April 2015, unless alterations have been proposed and adopted by the Representative Assembly.

Post Script:

Because of RL obligations, Han Held shall stand in Gaius' stead in this affair and shall appear before the SC if they meet at a time Han Held is able to be online (daytime SLT, basically).
