OOC: How is this not a house of cards violation?

Since some authors have a habit of deleting their text if it's unsuccesful, preserving this one's here.

World Assembly Central Library Compact

Category: Education and Creativity
Area of Effect: Cultural Heritage

The World Assembly,

Recognizing the work of the Universal Library Coalition (ULC), its Executive Committee (ULCEC), and their Universal Literary Exchange Network (ULEN), in promoting literacy;

Concerned, however, by a lack of protections for preserving physical written works, and thus, that the mission of digitizing and distributing literary works may be hindered by not having a central repository from which to conduct this import work;

Therefore, Hereby:

Establishes & builds a World Assembly Central Library Complex (WACLC), with the purpose of:
-Restoring & Replicating older written works, which may have become damaged with age,
-Collecting new & informative written works for archival purposes,
-Displaying rare, unique, or important works from nations,
-Providing scholastic access to such works, and maintaining the circulation of important written works among nations;

Mandates that WA Nations seek to preserve &, wherever possible, restore the historic & cultural written works of their nation, which may have become damaged through age;

Further, Requires all WA nations adopt standards governing the preservation, restoration, and security of historical, cultural, or important written works;

Encourages that all WA Nations unable to provide for the preservation and security of historic & cultural written works, seek wherever permissible to donate such works to the WACLC;

Mandates, that in order to achieve these goals, that the ULC be tasked with:
- Collecting & Preserving written texts as donated by entities to the WACLC, and when applicable returning original texts to their donor,
- Providing for the storage & security of written works;
- Creating replicated copies of works which may not be stable enough for public handling,
- Comparing digital copies of works to original written works to prevent tampering,
- Restoring & Repairing, at fair cost, written texts, at the request of donor entities;

Mandates that ULCEC oversee & consult with donors on:
- Ongoing funding efforts for WACLC operations,
- The importance, or literary value of a written work donated to the WACLC,
- The restoration or replication of written works provided, to ensure authenticity and validity,
- The security of written works donated to the WACLC,
- New standards of preservation, restoration, and protection of written works against loss or damage,
- Transfers of written works from donors to the WACLC;

Mandates that the Office of Building Management (OBM) locate suitable land(s) and/or a planet, in international territory on which to build the WACLC, which shall:
- Have adequate access to transportation to & from the WACLC & WA Nations,
- Be sufficiently large enough to include for future expansion(s) of the WACLC,
- Ensure necessary protection against fire, natural elements, or other natural phenomena;

Encourages all WA Nations seek wherever possible to donate new, informative written works to the WACLC and the ULEN for circulation amongst nations and/or archival purposes;

Affirms that all donors retain cultural ownership of all written works donated to the WACLC, and may elect to remove their work from circulation by providing written notice to the ULCEC;

Clarifies that nothing herein shall be read as to remove written works from member states, and that all contributions to the WACLC must be voluntary;

Affirms the rights of all WA Nations in promoting, as they see fit, the written works and literary traditions of their nation.

Still OOC: Also, were you at the word limit or something, because you use & instead of "and" a lot.

Because nothing in it requires a previous resolution, and committees are explicitly exempted.

It isn't a House of Cards violation because that isn't how the House of Cards rule has been previously enforced. The House of Cards rule is one of the clearest rules in the ruleset — explicit reference of a specific past resolution, in operative sections of new legislation, is not permitted. And there is also a test for when this is the case — whether or not the requirements would or would not make sense if the reference did not exist.

When Bakhton asks why this rule is this confusing, I can tell you we've found the source of the Nile.

I agree with IA here - as far as I understand House of Cards from the Wa rulebook, it only really kicks in if the resolution says something like "RELYING on GARs #X, Y, A and B". This one doesn't - all it does is refer to a pre-existing committee, which is perfectly legal - the committee will continue to exist even if the Resolution that established it is blasted into oblivion.

That said, if you really wanted to argue the nuts and bolts of it, I could get GenSec involved through a full-blown legal challenge if you wanted...

First I feel that I have been involved in the community of the GA long enough to understand that the full legislative history is important even if my resolution is unsuccessful.
Second point, is yes, it was nearer to 5000 at one point, which is all available in this thread for review.

How so? it is clearly providing a novel purpose for the WA. Most of the bulk of the bill is dedicated to building the library.

What? How does it amend prior legislation? Does it change that prior legislation? That's the bright line here.

EDIT: Per the GenSec decision here, 'Amendment violations actively attempt to somehow alter the text of the extant legislation'. This is not an amendment violation because it doesn't somehow alter the text of a past resolution. This should be clear both to you and everyone else. You raised the challenge in the first place and accepted the decision in that very same thread!

To author: if you were attempting to break the record on how many committees are named/introduced in a single proposal, you totally should've added WASP to make it six... ;)

OOC: That's absurd. Even if the reference is ambiguous, it is reasonable to interpret it as referencing the committee, not the resolution, so it wouldn't be illegal. And committees can be mentioned in several resolutions. I don't see how this could possibly be an Amendment or HOC violation without taking a view that ignores a reasonable legal interpretation for the sole purpose of finding it illegal.

If you want to bring a challenge, you should, but be aware that we take challenges seriously and don't want to hear unnecessary ones. If there isn't a genuine issue of law regarding the rules, please don't file one. This is pretty clear-cut in my eyes.

That was not our intention, it was originally to preserve books in the form of a library. The existing committees were merely a nice path by which to do so. I am not sure how WASP would have helped my cause, as I cannot force how they would be involved in preserving books. As for how many committed there are, with the exception of the library itself (WACLC), every committee already exists, we are just giving them more work.

Yes that is a side effect of campagning in the slow hours, I imagine most delegates received their telegrams during the morning and day when they logged in. :)

Oh I know, that's why I said "named/introduced", as one is introduced and the rest named. Still, five mentioned in total has to approach some kind of record...
