3. The maximum sentence for all Crimes Against Atlasia other than Identity Theft or Electoral Intimidation shall be of two years in length.
4. The maximum sentence for Identity Theft and Electoral Intimidation shall be of five years in length.
5. The maximum sentence for all Acts of Treason shall be for the duration of the guilty person or persons natural life.

Do we really need punishments of this duration in a game like this?

It's hard to argue that it's not Nix.

Keep in mind the voucher would just be a discounted price for public transportation. Maybe 15% off?
4  Atlas Fantasy Elections / Atlas Fantasy Government / Re: Alleviating Rural Poverty Act of 2015 on: May 20, 2015, 09:15:37 pm
No one supports giving public transportation vouchers to those who do not own vehicles?

AYE

Labor can attempt to rebuild with a new leader after 2016. Hopefully it's Albanese or at the very least someone not as horrible as Shorten.

Speaking of that, can't we get a federal election thread up now? There was already one before this point in the last parliament.

Didn't see this yesterday, but happy birthday. Cheesy

Yeah, I meant the German system or something fairly similar to it. Tongue
14  Atlas Fantasy Elections / Atlas Fantasy Government / Re: Childcare Reform Act (Debating) on: May 17, 2015, 02:00:43 pm
Or you could just include a provision forcing the federal DoIA to set the guidelines for that.
15  Atlas Fantasy Elections / Atlas Fantasy Government / Re: Senate resolution: Improve the Senate Rules on: May 17, 2015, 01:59:25 pm
My apologies about that.

Quote
Senate Resolution: Improve the Senate Rules
Article II, Clauses 1 shall be amended to read:
Quote
1) The Speaker shall be the presiding officer of the Senate and shall be responsible for upholding the provisions of these rules. No Senator other than the Speaker may open a thread on the Fantasy Government board unless authorized by the Speaker or by Senate resolution.
Article VI, Clause 1 shall be amended to read:
Quote
1. The President of the Senate (i.e. the Vice President) shall open a confirmation hearing for presidential nominees immediately following the President's announcement of the nomination.

Article VII shall be amended to read:
Quote
Article VII: Expulsion of a Sitting Senator
Section 1: Introduction of an Article of Expulsion

Expulsion proceedings shall be initiated if:
1) The Senator has not posted anything on the Atlas Fantasy Government board for 168 consecutive hours and hasn't posted a valid Leave of Absence (then the time covered by that LOA shall not count toward those 168 hours, but periods of inactivity before and after the LOA shall count as a continuous period, provided there are no interceding posts. In order to be valid, a Leave of Absence shall not be longer than 368 hours). And an article of expulsion has been introduced in the Legislative Introduction Thread.
2) 5 Senators have sponsored an article of expulsion, introduced in the Legislative Introduction Thread, against one of their Senate colleagues


Section 2: Rules
1) The President of the Senate shall open a thread and commence the debates. The President of the Senate shall not be able to take part into the debates.
2) The Senator concerned by the article of expulsion shall be informed by private message and may hire an attorney for organising his/her defense.
3) Debates shall last at least for 72 hours. After the debates have elapsed, the President of the Senate shall open a vote, which shall last for 3 days. In order to expel the Senator, two-thirds of the current senators shall vote AYE.
4) If the acting President of the Senate is the Senator concerned by the article of expulsion, the most senior Senator, who is not the Senator concerned by the article of expulsion, shall administer the expulsion process.
5) If a Senator administers the expulsion process, he/she shall not be able to take part into the debates and shall not be able to vote, unless his vote matters and only after the 72 hours of voting have elapsed.

Article X shall be added to the Senate rules:
Quote
Article X: Seniority
Seniority shall be determined by length of continuous service.

I withdraw my first amendment and introduce this one.

Cranberry, have you considered doing some single-member constituencies in addition to the proportional system?
17  Atlas Fantasy Elections / Atlas Fantasy Government / Re: Alleviating Rural Poverty Act of 2015 on: May 15, 2015, 04:13:55 pm
I'm interested in Blair's idea of a eco-friendly bus being used for this service? I'd love for us to to mandate a provision for one of those in this bill.

In addition, I think we should subsidize the bus service for people who do not have personal automobiles. That way, we might be able to reduce their usage altogether. I'd love to do something like that for urban areas too, but I'm not sure we'd be intruding on local authority that way.
18  Atlas Fantasy Elections / Atlas Fantasy Government / Re: Policing the Police Act of 2014 (Final vote) on: May 15, 2015, 04:09:29 pm
AYE
19  Atlas Fantasy Elections / Atlas Fantasy Government / Re: Reintroducing the Cabinet Reform Amendment on: May 15, 2015, 04:08:30 pm
I motion for a final vote.

(Should be clear enough for you that way, Windjammer Tongue)

Seconded.

Yes, it's pretty clear that the bureaucrats administering this would choose adequate, affordable childcare, not the luxury ones or their like. I'm willing to allocate the funds (which we've already reduced in amount) if it means making it easier for families to work without having to constantly worry about their children.

22  Atlas Fantasy Elections / Atlas Fantasy Elections / Re: Re-Elect Talleyrand Northeast Senator! on: May 15, 2015, 04:01:26 pm
I'm not a representative, BTW.

My apologies, RGN. Corrected.

I look forward to a strong campaign and a clear discussion on the issues that face the Northeast.

Welcome to the race and good luck!
23  Atlas Fantasy Elections / Atlas Fantasy Government / LOA: May 13th to May 15th on: May 13, 2015, 11:56:33 am
Will be extremely busy these next couple of days, so I may not have time to log on and check everything.
24  Atlas Fantasy Elections / Atlas Fantasy Elections / Re: A National Conversation - Electoral Reform on: May 12, 2015, 07:54:24 pm
I support a 5-5-5 plan:

5 MMP (party list)
5 District
5 Regional

I'll take this over the current system. My only fear is increasing the number of offices in that case. Is there any way this could be prevented?
25  Atlas Fantasy Elections / Atlas Fantasy Government / Re: Let's Stop Tricking the Newbies Act (Debating) on: May 12, 2015, 06:41:14 am
NAY
