[Bill] Patricians Bill

Recommended Posts

Lady Law Speaker,

 

Now come I, Daniel Goodheart of Nidaros-Volsdame, to propose the following bill for the consideration of the Althing.

 

...

 

 

A bill.

 

AN ACT TO DEFINE THE PATRICIAN COMPOSITION OF THE HIGH REALM

 

Section 1

The Patricians of the High Realm are those on whose names are written on the attatched list ("the list") in Schedule 1.

 

Section 2

Subject to the conditions in this Act the following shall govern the list:

 

a. Whenever a Patrician ceases to be a Patrician, his or her name shall be removed from the list, and;

 

b. Whenever a foreigner or stateless person is naturalized in accordance with law, his or her name shall be added to the list.

 

Section 3

The Warden of the Inland or, in the vice of said Warden, the High Council of the Realm shall be responsible for maintaining and updating the list, provided that he or she may not arbitrarily use this power. The list shall also be updated whenever a Patrician changes name or house.

 

Section 4

The High Council of the Realm has the power to enforce this Act.

 

 

Section 5

This Act, which may be cited as the Patricians Act of Year 10, comes into force upon the High King's assent.

Lady Law Speaker,

 

Given that it is difficult to keep good books on the patricianship of the high realm (we don't really know who is a Patrician and not), I made some research. I went back one year to find all census records and then balanced the records to those who were active Patricians and to those who have ceased to be Patricians (for various reasons, some tragic). The bill includes the list of all those who, in my opinion, should be Patricians of Stormark. Of course, this is a bill and I will consider any and all amendments. Thank you.
