LEX LABIENA DE IVRE EDICENDI VIGINTISEXVIRIS
I. Pursuant to section IV.A.8 of the constitution, which allows the
Vigintisexviri to be defined and assigned functions by law, it is
recognized that it is constitutional and lawful to assign to these
magistrates those powers that are reasonable and necessary to perform
II. Therefore, the Vigintisexviri are hereby given the power to issue
edicta, subject to the following restrictions.
A. Edicta issued by a member of the Vigintisexviri shall
reasonably and demonstrably fall under the purview of the specific
functions assigned to that member of the Vigintisexviri by law.
B. All edicta issued by a member of the Vigintisexviri shall be
subject in all ways to the laws that regulate edicta issued by other
C. Members of the Vigintisexviri are advised that not all actions
they take must be announced by edicta. It is strongly suggested that
the use of edicta be restricted to those actions that require some
force of law, such as long-term policies.
