1  Atlas Fantasy Elections / Atlas Fantasy Government / Re: Protecting Biodiversity for the Future Bill 2014 (Debating) on: October 29, 2014, 10:22:18 am
Two things:

Firstly, this is becoming a habit of mine but I'd like to point out that once again the northeast has beaten us to this once again.

Secondly, I don't think the language in section 3 works. It seems to just ban the sale of any products from species that are endangered in atlasia, not in the wider world, so the rhino and tiger for instance wouldn't be affected.

So I'm proposing an amendment:

Quote
Protecting Biodiversity for the Future Bill 2014

Noting with deep concern, the report recently released that outlined that more than half of the Earth's animals have been lost, in a period of only 40 years. The impacts of this are systemic and while we cannot reverse this trend, we can do what we can to deal with the future.

Therefore this Bill outlines the following measures.

1. The Federal Department of Internal Affairs will coordinate with regional governments to provide $45 million - to support measures designed to directly improve the biodiversity of their region. Projects eligible to be funded under this Bill include but are not limited to:
1a. improving land-use management;
1b. re-introduction of native species;
1c. management of invader/pest species; and
1d. increasing the amount of land given to natural reserves.

2. This funding will be distributed to the regions on a metric based on population. The regional environmental agencies will have responsibility for the approval of projects and their management.

3a. The importation into Atlasia and/or sale of products derived from any endangered or vulnerable species in Atlasia, will be a federally mandated crime, punishable by either an unlimited fine or  up to 5 years imprisonment, or both.
3b. Endangered and vulnerable species shall be defined as those on the red list of the International Union for Conservation of Nature.

Extremely thrilled that you won!
Congrats on your re-election, Sen. Bore! You can't be taken down, and it's clear there's no better fit than you to represent the Northeast.

Thank you, Lebron and Gass Smiley

I've had a look over the bill, and I agree that it's ready for a final vote.

Great work from nix, yankee, tnf and everyone else Smiley

Congratulations on the win. It was a well-fought race, and I'm sure you will do a good job continuing to represent us.

Thank you, governor Smiley
Congratulations, Senator! The lamestream media once again thought you couldn't win, and you proved them all wrong!

The only way John Borew is leaving the Senate is of his own will (or in an ambulance).



Thank you, Griffin, it's been a pleasure working with you.

Congratulations, my friend. It's reassuring  to know that you will continue to serve us in the Senate.

Thanks Nix, it's a shame that you won't be serving with me.

I'm extremely happy that your talents will remain in the senate, my friend. Congratulations. Smiley

Thanks Barnes, I really hope you stay active in the region. You've been an excellent CJO and I'm sure you'll be excellent in the assembly too.
Congratulations my friend! I'm very glad to see you're still representing the Northeast with pride!

Thanks Doc Smiley I'm really glad I'll be able to keep on working with you.

I thought Bore lost? I'm confused now.

I said it was too close to call. Bore pulled out with the last couple of voters. Meaning, in spite of everything, Labor actually netted one seat in the Senate.

Ah. I missed that, or I was going off someone else's post.

Yeah, rumours of my demise have been greatly exaggerated Tongue

Well, that election was quite something. Once again the northeast provided the most exciting election in the country, and I am honoured to have been selected by the people of this great region, even if by only one vote (the same margin, incidentally, as I won over matt in the special election to replace scott).

I would like to thank everyone who voted for me, be they from labor, TPP's, independents or federalists, without every single one of you, I could not have won, and I will try to represent all of you over the next 4 months.

I'd also like to thank Matt and Lief for running an excellent, entertaining and clean campaign, and wish them the best of luck in the future.

I can't see a Westminster MP going down at all well with the public.

The problem for Scottish Labour though is that all their MSPs are at best mediocrities.

22  Atlas Fantasy Elections / Atlas Fantasy Government / Re: Taft-Hartley Reinstatement Act (Debating) on: October 24, 2014, 12:45:01 pm
Are you aware that section 2 is blatantly unconstitutional, JCL?

Show me where the Atlasian constitution would forbid section 2. Unions don't have the right to force an individual to publicly reveal how they voted in a election to decide wether or not to bring a union into a company.
"is hereby banned and can never be brought up for reinstatement" being the relevant part.


It is not unconstitutional, it will have the force of law up and until a future Senate repeals it. Tongue It is not unconstitutional, it is hollow though.

Getting my constitutions mixed up Tongue It would be unconstitutional in Britain.

I intend to introduce and pass a constitutional amendment that would outlaw incest in the entire country as soon as I am sworn in as Senator.

Well, you would say that, wouldn't you?

Not only is taking the right to produce marriage legislation away from the regions a bad idea anyway (I may disagree strongly with the bill, but no one can doubt it has provoked a lot of activity in the region), it will also never pass the senate or the regions. That amendment which you claim you would introduce would never, ever, pass- and the pro incest lobby that you allege that you're not a part of knows this.

Now, obviously I would never say that you're a pro incest plant, but it would be very convenient for the incest cause if a senate bill that could never pass was introduced, as it would naturally suck the energy out of regional efforts, which could actually pass.
