Part 4 - Misc

  1. [P4 - The Speaker of the House and President Pro Tempore may amend this Act except for Part 4 via order via consent]

This bill aims to reintroduce the confirmation of certain ranks within the White House, with a slightly different procedure. This bill will establish a nomination process for people who are considered for one of the positions mentioned in the bill. Once a member is nominated, the appropriate Committee will deliberate the nomination, with the possibility of calling hearings or other ways to deliberate. This is to avoid people being kicked out of their positions because Congress failed them, but can't return to their old rank as it may be already filled. The nominee will remain in his original rank until he is confirmed by Congress, which will be safer for the nominee as he will still have their old rank if Congress was to fail.
