Executive Compensation Act of 2014

1. The Private Securities Litigation Reform Act of 1995 is hereby repealed in full.

2. The SEC shall no longer recognize the authority of the Federal Accounting Standards Board (FASB) to establish standards of financial accounting, effective July 1, 2014.

3. The Atlasian Government recommends that standard FASB 142 be prohibited from enforcement, effective immediately upon passage of this act.

4. The Government of Atlasia, under the purview of the Department of Internal Affairs, shall create Official Atlasian Accounting Standards, which shall replace the FASB's purview over nongovernmental accounting affairs. Included in these standards is a provision prohibiting the enforcement of standards included in the current FASB 142 standard.

5. If a publicly traded company, or a privately owned company intending to become publicly traded, desires to include stock-based compensation in an employee's compensation package, that employee may not derive any form of income from that compensation, with the exception of dividends, until 5 years after the employee is no longer a member of that company. Pension, retirement payouts, or other forms of deferred compensation do not constitute membership in the company.

Quote from: Final Text
South American/Asian Trade Reform Act:

1. Taking into account the complicated political and strategical relationship that the Republic of Atlasia has with Latin American and Asian nations, the Republic will commit itself to an increase in trade, economic and cultural cooperation and an increased number of memberships in international organisms related to the zone.

2. The Republic of Atlasia will increase funding to the Organization of American States (OAS) in 40 million per year, starting January 1st, 2015, in order to solve itís economic problems and ensure independence from external donors. Atlasia will (via SoEA) push forward for a continental effort to stop the increasing number of constitutional amendments that attempt to put an end to Presidential term limits.

3. The Republic of Atlasia acknowledges the role of the Asia-Pacific Economic Cooperation forum (APEC) in promoting economic cooperation in the Asia-Pacific region. In order to expand the success of this forum, the Republic of Atlasia formally supports the membership of the states of India, Bangladesh, Macau, Laos, Cambodia, Costa Rica, Colombia, Panama and Ecuador. The Republic of Atlasia also relinquishes itís right to represent Guam, and it supports the membership of said state.

4. The Republic of Atlasia states its desire to join the Pacific Alliance trade bloc as a full member state, considering that Atlasia already meets all prerequisites for membership with the following caveats:

a) The Republic of Atlasia recognizes that accepting free movement of people will have to wait for immigration reform in the Republic itself, and will work to lessen immigration restrictions on immigrants to Atlasia from Pacific Alliance states.

b) The Republic of Atlasia does not recognize the authority of the Pacific Alliance to mandate common diplomatic representation.

c) The Republic of Atlasia shall not mandate any changes to existing Atlasian stock markets in pursuit of a common Pacific Alliance market, but is willing to negotiate creating a new, common market.

5. The Republic of Atlasia formally congratulates the Association of Southeast Asian Nations (ASEAN), for being successful in the role of increasing cooperation, trade and regional stability. With the US-ASEAN Business Council as an example of increase cooperation, the Republic of Atlasia formally requests ASEAN for membership as an observer nation.

It is preferable to not go with a one size fits all approach. Also since one is probably looking like it is reduntant anyway...

I thought Labor was against complex bills that no one could sink their teeth into? Tongue I remember something about Nix and bore mentioning it once or twice.

I haven't taken a close look at your section seven thing, so that is why I sticking to the number of weeks.

How many weeks were left in X's term?

So what's next? The people do need to be educated afterall, or as Joe Biden would say, "This is a big...." Tongue

I support a two state solution, but I think you have to play this out through diplomacy to get that end, whereras if we try and assert the desired answer at the beginning, we probably won't get it.

NAY

Damn it shua, you voted twice and made me think this could be ended. Tongue
16  Atlas Fantasy Elections / Atlas Fantasy Government / Re: SENATE BILL: The Save Our Sharks Act of 2014 (Debating) on: April 22, 2014, 06:48:14 pm
Clause 1 would be in that case and maybe 2.


bore?

20  Atlas Fantasy Elections / Atlas Fantasy Government / Re: SENATE BILL: The Double Jeopardy Is OK...Take Two (Debating) on: April 22, 2014, 06:34:43 pm
Double Jeopardy is a critical protection and its preservation is essential to protect people from frivolous prosecution. Not everyone can afford to be in court over and over again and unless there is a real strong proof that the person did it, there shouldn't an exception otherwise.
21  Atlas Fantasy Elections / Atlas Fantasy Government / Re: SENATE BILL: Bill of Rights Amendment (Vote Halted) on: April 22, 2014, 06:31:26 pm
So are we game for yet another final vote then? Tyrion, you requested it be halted, you on board with a vote now?
22  Atlas Fantasy Elections / Atlas Fantasy Government / Re: SENATE BILL: Proportional Representation Act Fix of 2014 (Debating) on: April 22, 2014, 06:25:18 pm
I am unsure about this. On the one hand I like it, particularily from a political approach. But from the game, I worry that fewer elections might not be a good thing.

Woody White is now on the air in the Raleigh market attacking Rouzer for being a Pro-Amnesty Republican. He has got another one that seems to be just him introducing himself.


I also saw an ad that shocked me. One by Keith Crisco attacking Clay Aiken as "No Show Clay" for not showing up to the board he was appointed to deadling with special needs kids. Looks the Dem Primary for NC-02 is going to get dirty.

You also didn't count the Snowstalker JCL vote, which was hardly anything but considering no one else wrote him in and was just a way to vote for him in first preference without actually having to put him in the first slot.

Also there is the fact that we had two third party canddiates vying for our votes and no left wing third party candidates like in August and December doing the same to Labor, which also skews the numbers greatly.

Damn me and my obligations to other people, otherwise I wouldn't bother stating the obvious on this.

Snowstalker's not in a real party; I didn't count independents or those in parties who didn't have candidates, since they couldn't be counted as having defected.

I thought he was still labor officially.
