2.B. LAW PROPOSALS
- Proposal 1. I approve Nova Roma Inc.'s activity during this past year 2763 AUC / 2010 CE and give mandate to next magistrates for 2764 AUC to propose the comitia (general meeting), as soon as possible in 2011, their main lines for this term, and to present the yearly financial report for 2763 (as soon as Nova Roma Inc.'s former C.F.O. has sent back to NR Inc. its documents and information, already requested).
- YES or NO (delete the inappropriate word)
- Proposal 2. I instruct Nova Roma censors (NR Inc. “secretaries”), no later than Id. Ian. 2764, to:
- bring back to twenty-two (22), number set in Nova Roma Inc.'s articles of incorporation of Jan. 2, 2001, the number of NR senators (“directors”);
- thus remove four (4) senators-directors at their own discretion, taking as the main criteria of their selection the participation of every one to the Senate-Board sessions and/or votes in 2010/2763 and their respect of Nova Roma institutions.
- YES or NO (delete the inappropriate word)
ATTENTION : once cast, your vote cannot be altered or withdrawn. (lex Fabia, ibid. VI, C)
- ↑ The currently applicable lex Fabia does not allow voters to express, for every candidate, either a negative vote, or an abstention. To express her/his disapproval or abstention for the considered proposal, the voter must delete the option [UR]. If this option is not deleted, the diribitores will consider that this candidate is approved. Unlike to the Plebeian elections, lex Fabia does not allow write-in candidates or abstaining.
- ↑ The first proposal is mandatory in the context of the legal working of a non-profit making corporation like Nova Roma Inc. (here incorporated in Maine, USA). The second one also aims to repair legal omission, being stated that every non-profit corporation incorporated in Maine must either specify the exact number of the members of its Board, or, in absence of such provision, respect the number set in the articles of incorporation.
- ↑ The lex Fabia, “in the case of legislation”, provides two alternative choices : “yes” (“UR”) or “no”. The voter must naturally delete the inappropriate word.
