A disappointing turn of events for the Family Senate.
Already party systems are forming causing tension in The Family Senate. On one side are the Constitutionalists who feel the rules are explicit and not open to interpretation and the other side, the Democratic-Republicans, who feel that the Senate is an infringement upon Senate members’ individual rights.
On April 4th, 2017 Family Bill 8- Reading time shall be mandatory between the hours of 7-8 p.m. was challenged by a Senate member. At this time, four members in the Senate were present to meet the challenge of the bill. In a 3-1 vote, the member’s challenge was recognized as unfounded.
It was at this time, when the challenger presented a Nullification Act of 2017, in which said union member was asserting that they did not have to recognize Senate law if it infringed on their own personal views. As such, the member refused to acknowledge the 3-1 vote, showing the weakness within the Senate at such a crucial time in its development.
There has been talk this early morning of various members seceding from the Senate, as well the possible establishment of a Senate militia to ensure the upholding of laws.
