An Amendment to the Constitution, Article II, Section VIII

to the Constitution, Article II, Section VIII

Be it enacted by the State of Firestone House of Representatives and Senate in Congress here assembled:

Sec. 1.

This act may be cited as “An Amendment to C.II.VIII" for short.

Sec. 2.

(a) C.II.VIII shall now state: “The Governor has three (3) days upon the passage of Congress of a bill, etc. to give his approval or disapproval on said legislation. Should the Governor approve of the legislation, the Governor shall sign the legislation, and it shall become law; whereas should the Governor disapprove of the legislation, the Governor must refuse to sign the legislation, and instead veto it, where it may only become law should both present chambers of Congress vote by a supermajority (2/3) to override the veto. The Governor shall also be given the power of the line-item veto, also known as the partial veto. The line-item veto is the power of the Governor to invalidate or repeal specific provisions of a bill, without vetoing the entire legislation itself. Upon the Governor using this power, the legislation shall be sent back to the purposing chamber to make amends that suit the Governor’s request. Should the Governor not sign or veto a bill, etc. within three (3) days upon its passage of Congress, the said piece of legislation shall become law automatically. The Governor’s approval or disapproval of a Resolution or Amendment to the Constitution and/or Bill of Rights shall not affect its passage: they shall go into effect immediately upon their respective passage of Congress.”

Sec. 3.

This amendment shall go into effect upon passing both the Senate and the House of Representatives.

Sec. 4.

All laws in conflict with this amendment are hereby declared null and void.

Respectfully submitted to the State of Firestone Congress,

Chief Sponsor:
Senator NotoriousAmerican
