Sunshine and Term Limits

I have two more ideas for amendments that, if implented, may help to prevent our government from becoming a totalitarian state.

An Amendment to Prevent Unread bills from becoming Law
No bill may become law if
(a) it exceeds 25 pages in length, including all amendments, or
(b) it has been available to the Legislature and the Citizens to read for less than 30 calendar days, or
(c) it has been modified by amendment within the prior 30 calendar days, or
(d) fewer than all voting Legislators affirm under penalty of perjury that they have read the bill in full.
An Amendment to Limit the terms of elected officials
Section 1 of the Twenty-Second amendment is amended to read:
No person shall be elected to any federal public office more than twice, and no person who has held that office, or acted in the capacity of that office, for more than two years of a term to which some other person was elected to that office shall be elected to that office more than once. This article shall apply to every person currently holding any office, but shall not prevent any such person from fulfilling the remainder of such term, unless duly replaced by Constitutionally approved means.
