    I dunno about the wording, but this was something I wanted added, funnily enough.

    I think it's important that there be two types of primary legislation:

    1. The laws of the Reichstag,
    2. The proclamations of the Imperial Crown.

    In addition, in my view, there should be 'Executive Instruments' which are signed by the Chancellor/responsible minister, and are then subject to repeal by the Reichstag or the Crown. To keep in line with the 'legal fiction' process we have been making here, so far, you'd have them laid before the Council of State and then published. The key thing, however, is that they'd be made under primary legislation rather than the constitution, meaning they'd be secondary to other forms of legislation (which is important to avoid the kind of legal curfuffle TCB is seeing at the moment).

    I suggest this be removed from the floor or moved to vote @brihimia

    I motion to table the bill.
