New Laws

I'd like to see a requirement that all new laws:

  1. Fit on one sheet of 8.5x11" paper, 1 inch margins, no font smaller than 12pt.
  2. Be written in plain English, understandable to an average high school graduate.
  3. Provide specifically for enforcement and penalties.
  4. Make compliance as simple as possible.
  5. Make punishments as harsh as is reasonable.
  6. Require repeal of at least one pre-existing law.
  7. Be veto-able by a general referendum of the the constituency to which they apply.

What do you think? Are there more rules? Are any of these a bad idea?
