 This bill tied up a number of issues that had arisen in the 2009-2010 Parliament. ​ The issue of whether a seat belonged to the party or the MP had been raised by [[Stalin'​s Pipe Organs]]'​ defection on opening day.  The [[Party Switching Bill]] and the [[Seat Control Bill]] had attempted to solve that question in opposite ways, but both bills had failed. ​ This led to wider discussion on the issues of MP resignation and inactivity. ​ The [[Imperial Bill]] had left the presise status of the Empress in question, whether she was truly Head of State or merely a ceremonial figure with an impressive title. ​ The recent [[Prime Ministerial Crisis of 2009]] had made everyone question whether the Prime Minister should be elected or appointed. ​ And the recent lengthy discussion on titles had raised many questions over the status of and relationships between various government offices. This bill tied up a number of issues that had arisen in the 2009-2010 Parliament. ​ The issue of whether a seat belonged to the party or the MP had been raised by [[Stalin'​s Pipe Organs]]'​ defection on opening day.  The [[Party Switching Bill]] and the [[Seat Control Bill]] had attempted to solve that question in opposite ways, but both bills had failed. ​ This led to wider discussion on the issues of MP resignation and inactivity. ​ The [[Imperial Bill]] had left the presise status of the Empress in question, whether she was truly Head of State or merely a ceremonial figure with an impressive title. ​ The recent [[Prime Ministerial Crisis of 2009]] had made everyone question whether the Prime Minister should be elected or appointed. ​ And the recent lengthy discussion on titles had raised many questions over the status of and relationships between various government offices.
  
-Prime Minister [[maverick]] introduced the wide-ranging Procedures and By-Laws Bill on September 13, 2009.  It underwent a lengthy process of debate and amendment, and the final product seemed to herald a new era of multipartisanship in what had been a very argumenative and partisan Parliament. ​ The only Nay vote was a tentative one from [[oakvale]],​ who resigned his seat before debate was over.  His replacement,​ [[Keenir]], voted Aye, so the bill passed without opposition. ​ President [[TheDarkServant]] has yet to sign it into law.+Prime Minister [[maverick]] introduced the wide-ranging Procedures and By-Laws Bill on September 13, 2009.  It underwent a lengthy process of debate and amendment, and the final product seemed to herald a new era of multipartisanship in what had been a very argumenative and partisan Parliament. ​ The only Nay vote was a tentative one from [[oakvale]],​ who resigned his seat before debate was over.  His replacement,​ [[Keenir]], voted Aye, so the bill passed without opposition.  ​Acting ​President [[Hashasheen]] signed ​it into law on September 22.
