IN THE STATE OF FIRESTONE CONGRESS HERE ASSEMBLED THAT:
§1: The Firestone Constitution shall be amended.
§2: Section XIV of Article II shall now state: “The Governor shall have the power vested to issue a pardon to any individual , apart from his/her self or the incumbent Lieutenant Governor, for a plausible reason should upon the conclusion of any trial find the individual in question guilty of a crime. A pardon issued by the Governor may either: commute the sentence of any individual that has been convicted of a crime by, any and all, Courts of the State of Firestone, or; nullify and end the sentence of any individual that has been convicted of a crime by, any and all, Courts of the State of Firestone, alongside nullifying said conviction. The Governor shall be obligated, to inform the public on any and all pardons issued. Should the Supreme Court of the State of Firestone find any pardon issued by the Governor to not be for a reason plausible, they shall retain the ability to nullify said pardon in question through a super-majority (2/3) vote in favor of such nullification. The power to issue a pardon shall rest solely with the Governor of Firestone: no other position shall carry this power.”
§3: This legislation shall be overseen by the Governor.
§4: This legislation shall go into effect upon being passed from both chambers of Congress.
Respectfully submitted to the House of the State of Firestone,
Speaker of the House, Rinextel
