Holiday Bill

Overview

Although the AH.com calendar already includes four holidays, some members have lamented that there are so few. In response, it was proposed that a special committee be established for the specific purpose of devising new holidays for the board to celebrate. While the Holiday Bill received more votes in favor than against, it failed to meet the to meet the minimum passage threshold of 8 votes due to parliamentary absences.

History

kidblast (YSP) proposed establishing a special committee to propose new holidays for AH.com on May 5, 2008. Vice President Sargon, Chairman of the Evil Party, endorsed the bill, signaling that it would likely have support of the majority coalition.

Text of Legislation

The Parliament shall establish a committee to propose new holidays for AH.com.
