General Information

The Austin Island House of Delegates is the lower body of the Austin Island Congress. The House of Delegates powers are to vote on relief packages if one is proposed, the house of delegates can filibuster a bill (or 60% of the delegates vote on the bill). The House of Delegates has the power to vote to bring impeachable charges to the King if he is accused of political wrongdoing. The Speaker of the House of Delegates has the power to call for an emergency session if a bill is on a strict time limit, or the King can call for a government shutdown at midnight that day if the bill is not passed in a strict and timely manner. The Speaker of the Delegates can also call for a quorum (51% of the Delegates) to vote and a 3/5 majority of the quorum would make sure the bill would pass. The House of Delegates meets either at the house of the speaker or virtually on a video call.
