TextAmendment to the Procedural Rules of the Overhusen #2
After some careful thought and consideration and being given okay by Wintermoot,  I wanted to bring another amendment to our procedural rules.  To put it simply, I'd be melding two of the rules:

Quote
8. When taking a leave of absence, the Chairperson of the Overhusen shall have the authority to appoint an Acting Chairperson until the leave of absence is over. The Acting Chairperson shall assume all the rights and responsibilities of the Chairperson during this time.

9. In the event that the Chairperson of the Overhusen has been absent for over 48 hours without a declared leave of absence, the Monarch or Regent of Wintreath may name an Acting Chairperson. The Acting Chairperson shall assume all the rights and responsibilities of the Chairperson until the return of the Chairperson or until another permanent Chairperson has been appointed.

into just one with some added features:

Quote
8. The Chairman of the Overhusen shall have the power to appoint an Acting Chairman from among the peers of the Overhusen who shall, during a temporary absence of the current Chairman, preside over the Overhusen.
(a) The Acting Chairman, whenever he or she is presiding over the Overhusen, shall be subject to all constitutional and statutory constraints placed upon the Chairman.
(b) The current Monarch may choose to empower the Acting Chairman in the event that the current Chairman is absent for over 48 hours without a declared leave of absence  They will resume all rights and responsibilities until the return of the current Chairman or until a new Chairman is appointed.
(c) The Acting Chairman shall cease to preside over the Overhusen upon the return of the current Chairman or appointment of a new Chairman.  If the current Chairman was absent without notice after the given length of time, the Acting Chairman will only cease to preside over the Overhusen at the decision of the Monarch.
(d) In the absence of both the current Chairman and the Acting Chairman, the Monarch may choose to appoint someone as the new Acting Chairman from either inside or outside of the Overhusen.
(e) The Chairman may choose to appoint an Acting Chairman at any time, and the chosen person will fulfill their duties if the Chairman is absent, whether a notice of absence has been given or not. The chosen candidate must be approved by the Monarch before they can be appointed.

All peers may choose to vote Yay or Nay or may choose to abstain from voting.
