This Act Amendment replaces clarifications with respect to the Founder with equivalents with respect to the Trustees, and makes appropriate revisions pertinent to the Trustees.

Section 1. Incapacitation Threshold for Founder

Article 2, Section 1 shall be amended to read as follows:

The Trustees, World Assembly Delegate, Speaker of the Union, and Chancellor, being especially critical to the security of the region and the protection of the constitutional order, shall be deemed incapacitated if there has been no recent government activity according to their National Happenings feed for more than 7 days, or, for more than 3 days during a state of emergency that has been declared pursuant to Article 2, Section 9 of the Constitution.
Clause 1. Provided, due to the unique nature of their offices, the Trustees shall also be deemed incapacitated if and for as long as they are not a Member State of the Social Liberal Union, and during such incapacitation shall not execute the powers or duties of that office (including access to Cabinet discussions) without the prior authority of the Delegate, the Cabinet, or by judicial authorization upon petition and showing of good cause. Further provided, the Cabinet may revoke, modify, or supersede a grant of authority issued by the Delegate under this Clause by executive order.
