The Code of the eUS - Title 1: Procedure
-----------------------------------

1.1: Quorum

1.11: Definition of a Quorum
A Quorum, the minimum number of votes necessary for any measure to become law whether those votes are “yes” votes, “no” votes, or abstentions.

1.12: Requirement for Quorum to have been deemed reached
Quorum size shall be based on a weekly sign-in thread on the forum. If the number of sign-ins is odd, then quorum is half that number rounded up to the nearest integer. If the number of sign-ins is even, then quorum is half that number plus 1.

-----------------------------------

1.2 Proposals, Votes, and Laws

1.21 Proposals
Before a proposal can be made, a member of Congress (hereafter "member") must pose the subject for discussion and allow 24 hours to pass. The SOH or DSoH may waive this requirement if necessary. Ten members must approve an identically worded proposal for it to come to a vote.

1.22 Voting
Voting on proposals will last 24 hours but may be extended for up to 72 hours by the SOH or DSoH at their discretion. All members may vote. Only votes in the form of "yes" "no" or "abstain" will be counted. Proposals that require a 2/3rd majority in game to execute or Amendments to the Constitution will require a 2/3rd majority to pass. Any member may start a voting thread for a proposal after it reaches 10 approvals. A member may change his or her vote at any time before the voting period ends.

1.23 Becoming Law
If a quorum of votes are cast (see 1.1 "Quorum"), and the required number of votes cast approve, the proposal becomes law. Proposals amending the constitution require affirmative votes that meet or exceed 2/3 of the weekly sign-in thread for the week. The final tally shall be performed by the SoH or a DSoH, who shall announce the final results.

1.24 Resignation of a member
In the event a member resigns from Congress, all approvals or votes made prior to the official in-game resignation shall be counted as legitimate.

1.25 Leadership Nominations and Voting
Voting on leadership positions requiring congressional approval are exempt from the above requirements and will follow the procedures outlined for selecting a Speaker of the House (see 2.21 "Selection")

The Code of the eUS - Title 3 Oversight and Public Disclosure
-----------------------------------

3.1: Information

3.11: Budget Allocations
Any budget line holders (Organizations that receive Gold or any currency from the Congressional Budget Office according the US Budget) must, at the request of Congress, submit a report to Congress (or the Select Committee on Intelligence depending on sensitivity). If the Speaker of the House determines that something has wrongly been submitted to the Select Committee on Intelligence, they may move it to the Private Congressional Affairs board.

3.12: Select Committee on Intelligence Information
The Military and President must, at the Select Committee on Intelligence's request, provide the committee with a report on how any committee-approved gold or currency was used.

The Congressional Budget Office must provide the Select Committee on Intelligence with an update on currency and gold reserves at least every week, or as soon as possible after a request from the committee.

-----------------------------------

3.2: Halting Congressional Funding

3.21: Proposal Presented by Congressional Leadership
The Speaker of the House or Deputy Speaker of the House may, at their discretion, bring a proposal for a freeze in funding before the Congress. This proposal does not require a discussion period.

3.22: Approving the Proposal
Upon that proposal reaching 10 approvals, the Congressional Budget Office is to immediately cease any funding related to that portion of the budget.

3.23: Voting to Remove a Funding Freeze
At any point after the approval process, a full Congressional vote may be started by any Congressman in order to reassess the funding freeze. The outcome of that vote determines whether the freeze continues or if funding resumes. The house cannot revote on a funding freeze for 72 hours after the first vote has closed.

-----------------------------------

3.3: Removal of the President of the eUnited States of America

3.31: Removal Procedure
Any Congressmen may start a forum discussion on impeachment. This proposal must then follow the procedures described in section 1.2 Proposals, Votes, and Laws. Upon receiving a 2/3rd majority vote, provided quorum has been met, an in-game impeachment may be proposed.

3.32: Penalties for improper procedure
Any Congressman proposing an in-game impeachment without having followed the procedure described in section 3.3 of the eUS Code shall have their forum privileges suspended pending disciplinary action to be determined by the Speaker of the House.
