Rhialto Tereshchenko, Representative of Bespin only suggested some wording change to Article 1 Section 3 Rhialto Tereshchenko said, “Just one bit of wording; it may seem overly particular but I have one change I suggest.” Giving the floor, by Chancellor Pjaysiv Panteer, Rhialto went on to say that Killing should be changed to Murder.

I just do not like to leave possible loopholes.” The Senate agreed and changes were made with an overall majority vote to pass the bill.
