To clarify types of official measures in the Social Liberal Union, and to appropriately organize them.[2]

Section 1: To describe the material which can be brought before the attention of the Open Parliament.

1.1. Bills are binding pieces of legislation. As per Article 1 of the Constitution, any Member Nation of the Social Liberal Union may propose these.
1.2. Amendments are pieces of legislation that seek to repeal, correct or change a bill, or section of the Constitution previously passed by the Open Parliament. As with bills, these may be proposed by any Member Nation of the SLU.
1.3. Motions are non-legislatively binding, and typically subject to a shorter voting period than that of bills pr amendments. At the moment when they are tabled, they require a second from another Member Nation. These seek to express an opinion of the Open Parliament, on behalf of the SLU. They can also be used in emergency situations, for example, to transfer power to the Founder.
1.4. Executive Orders are pieces of temporary legislation equivalent to Bills or Amendments, when the Amendment is not to the Constitution. They are passed by the Cabinet or the Speaker and Delegate as opposed to the Parliament; however, upon their passage, they can be voted upon and changed into one of the types of materials found in the above clauses and must be organized similarly.

Section 2: To lay a framework for the organization of legislation, in the “Acts of Parliament” section of the Forum, a thread, maintained by the Speaker of the Union, shall be created listing all the passed bills, amendments, and motions. It shall also contain links to the thread of each bill, amendment, and motion. The thread will organize the laws as follows:

  • All the bills shall be grouped together, in chronological order. Each bill shall be assigned a number, in order of its appearance. All bills passed before the passage of this bill shall be retroactively be assigned a number. A prefix of B- (number of bill) shall be added to each bill. (The finished product will look something like this (eg. B-25: Blah Act))
  • All the amendments shall be grouped together, in chronological order. Each amendment shall be assigned a number, in order of its appearance. All amendments passed before the passage of this bill shall be retroactively be assigned a number. A prefix of A- (number of amendment) shall be added to each amendment. (The finished product will look something like this (eg. A-14: Amendment to Blah Act))
  • All the motions shall be grouped together, in chronological order. Each motion shall be assigned a number, in order of its appearance. A prefix of M- (number of motion) shall be added to each motion. (The finished product will look something like this (eg. M-3: Motion to Condemn a Region))
  • Executive Orders, while not generally passed by Parliament, shall be recorded in the thread. All the Executive Orders shall be grouped together, in chronological order. Each Executive Order shall be assigned a number, in order of its appearance. A prefix of E- (number of Executive Order) shall be added to each Executive Order. (The finished product will look something like this (eg. E-8: Order to Eject a Nation)
