  1. ACT OF THE IMPERIAL DIET The Backpayment Procedure Act, 1784 3rd of Horen's Calling Introduced in the Commons. Passed by the House of Commons in the 18th Imperial Diet. COMMONS AYE Rakoczy Stahl-Elendil C. Barclay Galbraith Carrion Baruch Bykov Christiansen ABSTAIN Wick Kortrevich ABSENT O. Barclay O’Rourke INTRODUCTION This bill seeks to regulate issues of claiming requisitions that were previously unclaimed for a number of years and placing inconsistent expenditure burdens on the Imperial Treasury, seeking to place a statutory limitation on salary claims. SECTION I: DEFINITIONS “Secretaries” shall be referred to the Ministers of the Crown on the Council of State; “Imperial Treasury” shall be the monetary department of the Imperial Government; “Monetary claim” shall be a monetary requisition to the Imperial Treasury; SECTION II: On Ministry Budget Requisitions Secretaries are obliged to claim salaries for their employees no later than one year after payment was originally due; Secretaries will be deemed to have made a sufficient monetary claim by way of communicating clearly through the established channels of Treasury requisitions; If Secretaries fail to claim a year’s salaries within two years, the salaries are deemed to have been forfeited and shall not be paid, which applies retroactively; The monetary claim will still be deemed valid if the Secretary requesting money, has submitted such claim, but the Treasury has failed to provide the monetary claim at the date notified by the monetary claim; Secretaries, even after receiving salaries from monetary claims, who consistently fail to pay their employees shall be liable by the House of Commons, for impeachment under charges of negligence towards their responsibilities of their department. Such must be determined before proceeding towards an impeachment inquiry, such as through a Writ of Summons; SECTION III On General Backpayment Procedure In pieces of legislation that dictates payment towards a group of people or entity, if said entity fails to create a monetary claim for said payment after no later than one year, this payment will be deemed forfeited, which applies retroactively; As similar to the aforementioned section, the monetary claim will still be deemed valid if the Treasury has failed to provide the monetary claim at the date notified by the monetary claim. Introduced by Member of Commons George Galbraith, on the 6th of Horen’s Calling, 1784 Co-sponsored by Sir Konstantin Wick Issued and proclaimed, Anne I, by the grace of GOD Holy Orenian Empress, forever August, Queen of Renatus, Curon, Salvus and Seventis, Defender of the Faith, Princess of Malinor, Duchess of Adria, Novellen and Lorraine, Baroness of Renzfeld, Protector of the Heartlanders, Highlanders, and Farfolk, etcetera. Joseph II, by the grace of GOD Holy Orenian Emperor, forever August, King of Renatus, Curon, Salvus, and Seventis, Defender of the Faith, Prince of Malinor, Duke of Adria, Novellen and Lorraine, Baron of Renzfeld, Protector of the Heartlanders, Highlanders, and Farfolk, etcetera.
  2. Twentieth Imperial Diet, 1787 House of Commons “Mr. President, your chair and gavel await you.” As the fanfare would ensue, the young statesman, George Galbraith, would scan the crowd as he’d get up from the Josephite bench and looked towards the seat. He’d briefly take a seat at the dias at the top of Varoche Hall, looking to both sides, and taking in the view as the great Presidents of the past once did. He’d place his hand on the gavel, banging it on the desk once, addressing both of the parties that sat on either side of him. “I thank all of the Honorable Members seated in this chamber for electing me to preside over the 20th Imperial Diet. It is our collective hope that this session is filled with productivity and progress for Our Great Country,” the President would announce, his voice echoing through the Hall. “I will uphold the integrity of this office.” With that, the roll was then called: AQUINAS-ELMPOOL, Thomas DE LANGFORD, Lemuel. DUBOIS, George. GALBRAITH, George. HELVETS, Adrian O. KAROLY, Lajos. KELMENOUR, Annabelle. KOVACHEV, George. PRUVIA-ALBAROSA, Philip. SARKOZY, Franz. SKINGAARD VAN HALEN, Leonard. STAHL-ELENDIL, Jonah. As the Leader of the House called for all to rise, the newly-elected House of Commons stood, placing hands above hearts, their eyes turned expectantly to President Galbraith as he voiced the oath of office, “I swear to be true to the Emperor and the realm and not to maintain silence about any evil that I may know which is being contemplated against them. I swear to work tirelessly to the betterment of the Empire and the Orenian people that comprise it. I swear also not to eat or drink with traitors and not to have anything in common with them, and always to defend the honor of the gentlemen I serve. This, I swear by the Holy Scrolls.” The voices of the parliamentarians mingled into one proud drone, before silence fell again. “Members of the House of Commons,” said President Galbraith, “You may take your seats.” He rapped the gavel. “I hereby call this sitting of the Twentieth Imperial Diet to session.” ((This is a forum roleplay post.

  12. Nineteenth Imperial Diet House of Commons The air would turn thin, seemingly signaling a transition from the humid summer into a colder fall of the year 1786. His Imperial Majesty Joseph II would enter the realm of Varoche Hall, pausing as he would look to the newly elected legislators on the floor, both old faces and new. He would progress again, moving towards the stands of the courtroom that was so familiar to himself, raising a palm to the crowd and forming it into a fist, signaling the silence of the fanfare that ensued with his entrance. The Members of the House would sit back down, retaining their gaze on the speech that the Emperor would deliver. Upon the completion of the speech, the Emperor would rest his hand on the desk within Varoche hall. As the crowd would applaud, golden slivers of light would shine through the Hall towards the elected legislators of Oren, the men and women who have assembled to uphold the eminence of civil service. With this, the 19th Imperial Diet is called to session, those being: Jonah Stahl-Elendil @Braehn Elendil An'Hiraeth Annabelle Kelmenour @audyush Edwin Winter @SubscriptShark2 Ostromir Carrion @Lhindir_ George Galbraith @MrChenn1 Padraig O’Rourke @Mandalore1 George Kovachev @Esterlen Lukas Rakoczy @Pureimp10 Marya A. Kortrevich @MikoMonster Juliyus Kortrevich @Quinn275 Boris Ruthern @GMRO Edvard Amador @HogoBojo Arising from concerns that may disrupt logistics and travel, such as the likes of the Inferi incursion, it is deemed necessary to facilitate and determine procedures that may be usually preferred for the first sitting. Hence, the aforementioned Members of the House of Commons are summoned to put forward and discuss a nomination for the following presiding officer, the President of the House of Commons prior to the first sitting, at which time voting will be considered closed one month after the posting of this document, or if all majority for the position is achieved: President of the House of Commons: Charged with maintaining order and overseeing the smooth conduct of the House of Commons, the President is the presiding Member who calls sittings to session, adjourns sittings, calls the roll, tallies votes, addresses any matters of discipline and misconduct and takes minutes of each meeting. Elected by majority vote. Members of the House of Commons are invited to nominate themselves to these offices and discuss and debate other nominations by way of written letter to Varoche Hall, and all Members are asked to vote for any proposed officer.
