The purpose of this is to debate a Bill before it is added. Debate can center on whether the Bill should be passed or not, or it can center over which lobbyists care about the Bill in question. Some Bills are unconstitutional or simply redundant, so if this Bill is one of those, it won't be added in the first place, so feel free to debate that, too. Have fun.

Congressional Leadership

(Submitted on behalf of Rep. Tony Carli (R-GA)

SECTION 1: SHORT TITLE

Name of Bill: A Bill Addressing Congressional Elected Officials.

SECTION 2: FINDINGS

In real life, any house member can theoretically be elected speaker or leader.

The Constitution states "The House of Representatives shall choose their Speaker and other officers." This does not exclude any representative of the house due to terms served.

These laws unfairly limit a party to picking from a small pool of representatives, when they are allowed by the Constitution to choose any that they wish.

SECTION 3: CHANGES

This bill will establish the only requirement to being elected Speaker of the House, House Minority Leader(s), or House Minority Whip(s) is to be a serving member of the House of Representatives.

One task of the aforementioned leadership positions shall be to receive and post congressional bills for discussions and votes, count said votes, and post the final vote count of the week. Any further tasks for party officials shall be established by the party itself.

SECTION 4: ENACTMENT

This bill will become law when it is passed by the House of Representatives.

Authored by Rep. Tony Carli (R-Georgia)

I agree and I urge my friends in Congress to push this bill so it can be made into law.
