The Caputian Code of Law Act, 1658

A Bill to codify Caputian law, and for other purposes.

BE IT ENACTED, therefore, by the Queen's Most Excellent Majesty, by and with the advice and consent of the Lords and Burgesses in this present Parliament assembled, and by the authority of the same, as follows:

ARTICLE 1. Citation.
This Act shall be officially cited as the "Caputian Code of Law Act, 1658".

ARTICLE 2. Codification.
1. All Caputian laws are to be compiled in a code of law, called the Codex Faciendum, except as otherwise provided by law.

2. The Codex Faciendum shall be arranged by subject within 10 Titles, each composed of a number of numerically designated chapters:

Title I (Chapters 100-199) - General
Title II (Chapters 200-299) - The Executive Branch
Title III ( Chapters 300-399) - The Legislative Branch
Title IV (Chapters 400-499) - The Judicial Branch
Title V (Chapters 500-599) - Agencies, Programs, and Activities
Title VI (Chapters 600-699) - General Statutes
Title VII (Chapters 700-799) - Codex Suffragia (Electoral Code)
Title VIII (Chapters 800-899) - Finance
Title IX (Chapters 900-999) - Criminal Code
Title X (Chapters 1000-1999) - Code of States and Dependencies


3. It shall be the duty of Her Majesty's Government and of Parliament to ensure that the Codex Faciendum is always updated, and properly published by the Zalae Gazette and the Ministry of Home Affairs.

4. Each chapter of the Codex Faciendum is to be numbered by a decimal arrangement carried out three decimal places. (Ex. Title 2 begins with Chapter 200).

5. Each section of a chapter of the Codex Faciendum is to be numbered by a decimal arrangement carried out to two or three decimal places. The first decimal place is to represent the section. The second decimal place is to represent the subsection. The third decimal place is to represent a paragraph. (Ex. Chapter 152 beings with section 152.1 and potential subsection 152.11. If the Chapter has more than 9 sections it beings with Section 152.01.)

ARTICLE 3. Effects on Parliament.

1. Parliament shall make the appropriate changes on the official formats of legislation to ensure compliance with this Act.

2. Legislation under consideration of Parliament must be numbered according to the year and order in which it is enacted.. (Ex. Act 1658.12 is the twelfth Act passed in 1658.)

ARTICLE 4. Committee for Codification.

1. The Parliament shall establish a Committee for Codification, a legislative committee group, in which all Lords and Burgesses of Parliament shall be entitled to be members.
2. The Woolsack may, at their discretion, add individuals to the Committee for Codification who do not have a seat in Parliament for a time to be determined by the Woolsack.
3. The Committee for Codification shall ensure that all laws passed by the Parliament are properly codified at the end of every parliamentary session, and shall issue a certified updated copy to the Zalae Gazette, Parliament, and to the Ministry of Home Affairs.
4. No alterations to passed and assented legislation may be made by the Committee for Codification except to correct clerical, formatting, and spelling errors.

ARTICLE 5. Enforcement Prerogatives.

1. The Queen-in-Council may provide regulations and Orders-in-Council to adequately enforce the provisions of this Act.

ARTICLE 6. Commencement.
This act shall not become law until it has received Royal Assent.

My Lord,

I present this Code of Law Act to codify our laws and regulations into one main code that is easily searchable and can be referenced easily. This is a practice that is kept in great nations like Natopia and Shireroth, and we should adopt it too to reap the rewards that a well-codified law can give our country.

I, of course, remain open and receptive to any and all proposals and amendments to ensure this Bill is the best it can be.

I yield.

My Lord,

Will the Prime Minister clarify whether or not other areas of law-making not covered in this list will be sorted into the "General Statutes" subject?

My Lord,

Indeed, that is the purpose of the General Statutes subject. Of course, in the future amendments may be made to add or renumber titles as needed. Perhaps it may be wise to create some form of way to ensure clerical amendments are dealt with quickly to ensure that the Code can be updated?

I yield.
