Combat HIV/AIDS Act of 2010

Whereas:
 
Annually, Hepatitis C treatment costs $25,000 to $30,000 per person.
 
HIV treatment was estimated to cost about $20000 per person per year.
 
And whereas
 
The cost to prevent one HIV infection through a syringe and needle exchange program has been calculated at $4,000 to $12,000.

BE IT HEREBY ENACTED THAT: Atlasia shall appropriate $40 million to implement a functioning syringe and needle exchange program targeting areas with rates of injected drug use that exceed the national average. Implementation of said program and targeting of areas of use shal be implimented by the Department of the Interior.

Sponsor: Badger
Slot: 4

I think this is already covered by the HIV/AIDS policy bill enacted by the 22nd Senate which appropriates $60million to a similar programme. Could the Senator clarify?

Urg! Tongue Although that was for FY 2008, I see no reason to assume the funding hasn't been renewed annually. So holding an additional vote for presumably already approved funding seems like a waste of this body's time. If someone wants to introduce a bill cutting/eliminating funding for this program we can debate this issue then. In the meantime, I move to withdraw this proposal.

As a sidenote, this is another reason for reorganizing Atlasian law under a numerically codified structure by subject heading (criminal, health, public works, etc.) to give it some semblance of order. Presently the only way to reference current Atlasian law is to either: A) have been around when a law was passed (and remember it); or B) Review all 6-700 lines of the list of laws passed during each senate term looking for keywords in the title (which often aren't very informative of the act's contents).

This is a (very) long term goal of mine. Hopefully it'll fit in with some of the many reforms PS is proposing if he's elected.

So noted. Senators, there is a motion to withdraw this bill by its sponsor. Other Senators have 72 hours to attempt to assume sponsorship if they so desire.
