Seeing some Representatives' interest in the bill, I'm going to make and grant motion to extend debate until 11PM on Saturday, April 19.

How do you propose making up the over $15 billion that the sales tax brings in?
3  Atlas Fantasy Elections / Regional Governments / Re: NE3: Unnecessary Programs Elimination Act (Debating) on: April 17, 2014, 09:44:05 pm
By a 2-3 vote, the amendment fails.

Debate shall continue on the bill, as originally drafted.  Does anyone want to extend the debate period?

24 hours have passed before this amendment, deemed hostile by the bill's sponsor, was proposed.  It is time to vote on the amendment, which would replace the entire bill.

Under the SOAP, this vote remains open for 24 hours.

Does this amendment replace the bill or just add another section?
12  Atlas Fantasy Elections / Regional Governments / Re: NE3: Unnecessary Programs Elimination Act (Debating) on: April 15, 2014, 06:22:20 pm
Thank you for linking to the statutes.  I will have to research them before knowing if I support or oppose this bill.
13  Atlas Fantasy Elections / Regional Governments / NE3: Unnecessary Programs Elimination Act (Debating) on: April 15, 2014, 06:13:41 pm
I am opening up NE3 to make sure we get through the queue.  There is one more piece of legislation in it.  I figure that the governor won't veto both pieces of legislation, so we should have time to get through the last piece before next Thursday - though we might need to shorten the debate period if the governor takes his time in signing or vetoing what is currently on the floor.  

Here is the bill:

Unnecessary Programs Elimination Act
Quote
The following pieces of legislation are hereby repealed in their entirety:
1. Northeast Regional Economic Policy and Improvement Act of 2013
2. Quick-Action Closing Fund Act of 2013
3. Job Creation and Infrastructure Renewal Act of 2012
4. Sbane Windfarm Act of 2012
5. Northeast Small Business Incentive Act of 2010
6. Northeastern Green Jobs Act of 2009
7. Northeastern Revitalization Proposal of 2006

Sponsor: Rep. Deus naturae

Debate on this bill shall remain open for 72 hours, or until around 7:15PM on Friday, April 18, unless modified or extended.  The sponsor, Rep. Deus, is encouraged to speak on behalf of the bill within the next 36 hours.  If he does not, the bill may be tabled, depending on whether there is additional legislation in the proposed legislation thread at that time.

The floor is open for debate.

The debate period is over.  It is time to vote on the bill, as amended:

Amendment to the Employees Fair Treatment Act
Quote
1. Sections One and Four of the Employees Fair Treatment Act of 2013 are hereby repealed in their entirety.
2. Any former employee currently receiving dismissal compensation shall continue to receive compensation until twelve months have passed since the date of his/her dismissal.

FYI, the Employees Fair Treatment Act states:

Quote
1. No employer can dismiss an employee without reasonable cause. Poor performance is a reasonable cause when backed by facts and observations in the employee's file or evaluation. A employer can dismiss an employee in case of company cutbacks or violations of company rules.
2. Age, gender, sexuality or race are not grounds for dismissal.
3. In case of dismissal an employee has the right to challenge the decision in court. The court will decide whether the dismissal is justified.
4. An employee has the right to compensation after dismissal, up to twelve months of salary depending on the time with the employer. But no compensation will be granted to employees who are dismissed after breaking company rules.
