A Proposal

I propose a constitutional amendment requiring any bill be read, out loud, from the steps of the capitol building BEFORE any debate can begin on said bill.

The bill may not be changed without re-reading, out loud, on the capitol building steps. Thus, the read bill is the one that will be voted upon.

The primary sponsor of the bill must do the reading, and may not stop reading one they have begun. No breaks to eat, drink, sleep, use the restroom take lifesaving medication, etc... If the reading is interrupted, the congressperson must begin again, from the beginning.

Spectators will not be forbidden to attend the reading in any numbers.

Readings will be scheduled to allow normal, productive, members to be able to attend.

Spectators will not be required to politely, and silently listen.
