WHEREAS we are, as everyone knows, the best province, and
WHEREAS that means we should celebrate our bestness,
THEREFORE be it enacted that a new section entitled “Title E: Provincial Holidays” shall be created and added to the text of the Comprehensive Body of Law Act.
A new clause, Title E, Clause 1 (E.1), shall be added with the text:
”Clauses may be added to this title at any time simply by an assemblyperson saying in the assembly ‘Hey, we should make [day] a holiday for [reason].’ If two other assemblypersons answer with ‘Yeah, we should,’ the new holiday will be added to the clause immediately.”
Title A, Clause 6 shall be deleted, and a new clause, Title E, Clause 2 (E.2), with the same text shall be created.
A new clause, Title E, Clause 3 (E.3), shall be added with the text:
“The Assembly of Maritiimi-Maxhestic hereby establishes Victorià in Tzaracentra Ziua, or Victory in Middle-Earth Day, a day of celebration of the victory of the Captains of the West over the armies of Sauron, and of the hobbit Frodo’s destruction of the One Ring, to be observed on March 25 every year.”

Ian makes good points.
(Besides, I guess I've realized that activity for the sake of activity isn't necessarily good.)

I have some concerns about this bill.
1) Attempting to create new law without the approval of a majority of the Assembly almost certainly goes against our Constitution (I'd have to check it again to be sure, but I think so).
2) I don't love the idea of creating a bunch of random holidays. We already have a holiday literally every single day, plus all the holidays at the national level, so I don't think we should create so many holidays that we need a whole new section for it.
3) Does MM have any significant connection to the Lord of the Rings? If the province held of celebration for this holiday, that would be great and possibly encourage activity, but I see no reason for it to be enshrined in law.

V: Applause to the fun and civil debates going on right now on disparate issues concerning the Organic Law. My hat is tipped to the substantive and civil nature that all particpants are employing in their responses. It's refreshing.
