    Notes

    The Crisis Committee has existed for a nearly a year but its operation has been hindered by problems. The latest Speaker has attempted to revive the Crisis Committee by returning to basics, however, the only reform has seen a government member elected as a chair for the Crisis Committee. The Crisis Committee is a failed experiment that few people faithfully support, if the Crisis Committee was fully supported, serious reform would have happened since its conception.

    Your submission did not appear to have a title for the field (and later the wiki) so I added one provisionally, give me a shout if you'd like it changed.

    It deserves to be given every chance. Changes have started to be put in place. This is premature.

    Aye, if people really supported the Crisis Committee it would not have taken nearly a year to start properly reforming; it is time to accept it has failed.

    I disagree, calling something a failed experiment after nearly one year, or two terms is not premature.

    So a year of failure to have reform forced upon it, with people not even caring that it did jack **** in that year, it's clearly such an important part of the MHoC, absolutely vital, and totally premature to have given it a year.

    It's been active for about 8 months, and there was no Government for what, two months? That leaves it only at 6 months. Regardless, Ray should be allowed to implement his changes and we should try to improve it. Whilst there are still people willing to take part in it, it is not failed.

    As above.

    RayApparently does this need a simple majority or a 2/3's majority?

    I'm a bit apathetic and will accept the will of the House. For possibly the first time ever I will abstain.

    No it's not. It's also constitution. I needed a 2/3rds majority to get it passed. Just making sure its the same to remove it.

    Yes, six months to actually publish, or are you seriously suggesting that if there is no government the CC should be able to sit on its arse doing nothing, then again that wouldn't be unique to there being no government. They had two months there to write good crises, instead we have had utter drivel written, and there is little hope of improvement given that has there been any meaningful change to the make up of the CC, or is it largely still the same members?

    A 2/3 majority is required to amend the Constitution and so, following precedent, the entirety of the amendment will fail to pass should a 2/3 majority not be secured.
