The Ron Paul Act of 2016:

1. The police can not lie to get confessions.
2. The police cannot go through your documents, or home without a warrant, and if they do they shall face a $50,000 fine and go to court on charges of invasion of privacy, should an officer do this.
3. This act would call for small cameras to be put on each officer, they'd cost about $50 dollars each, setting aside around 300,000 dollars to supply these cameras.
4. The police can not demand people to stop recording police situations.
5. This act states the government shall encourage PEACEFUL demonstrations if any sort of police brutality happens, the officer likely won't get away with it.
6. If somehow a prisoner in the South has been labeled not guilty of something and has served in prison for something they didn't commit, they shall be liable to a 3,000 dollar grant for each year they served. (of course they will be labeled innocent with proper investigations, of course)

The Criminal Justice Reform Act of 2016:

1. If a police officer goes through your documents or your home without a warrant they shall face a $50,000 fine and go to court on charges of invasion of privacy.
2. This act would call for small cameras to be put on each officer, supplying for 100,000 of these cameras (thus costing about $5,000,000).
3. The police can not demand people to stop recording police situations. If they do, there will be an ethics investigation, and they will face a fine of the wages that they miss.
4. This act reinforces the right to peaceful protest, and police officers will be punished if they infringe on that right by in any way impeding, discouraging, or abusing people legally protesting something.
5. The punishment for infringing on protest rights will be at least a weeks wages, and will be immediate dismissal and criminal charges if violence is involved on the part of the officer.
6. In the event that someone in the South serves time in prison for a crime it was proved that he/she didn't commit, he/she shall be liable to a 3,000 dollar grant for each year they served.

It's an amendment, just because the name is changed doesn't mean it's a new bill.

This shall be introduced later but...

The People's Government Bill

1. Citizens will be allowed to introduce bills in the SE legislature, even if they are from other areas, essentially allowing anyone who wants to introduce a bill can introduce one.
2. The Maximum amount of bills being debated or voted on shall be increased to 4.
3. Tax rates, current states of the economy, etc shall be released every five months.
4. Southern Government spending shall be publicly view-able.

Sounds more like a constitutional amendment.

Although, on #4, we should do our budget. We normally try to do that each year anyway, so #s 3 and 4 are redundant.

So, under Section 2, a citizen of another Region (say, the Mideast) would be able to introduce legislation in the Southern Legislature? If so, I support this amendment! Wink

By the way, I will oppose this measure. Why on earth would you give most of the same powers to non-legislators as you would to legislators? The legislative elections are supposed to have meaning--it's not a ceremonial title.

Also, non-citizens? I think that's crazy. In real life, I, as a citizen of Georgia, should not be able to go into Tennessee and vote on their referendums and elections and whatnot--much less propose legislation for their state legislature. (I get that it's a different idea, but hopefully you all understand my point.)

Not that this is a place for debate--just giving my two cents considering that other's gave theirs.

He didn't include voting, he just included amending and drafting bills both of which I agree with. I support a more globalized style of legislating where everyone is allowed to give their two cents.

Mr. Governor, this is a thing where non-legislators, from the South, etc can introduce bills they see fit, I mean think about it this is a people's government after all! So why can't we take a few ideas from our neighbors and get to know the people's concerns?

Haslam can introduce that and we can debate on it, but you didn't make the corrections I suggested.

It gives no indication to where it is (it's Article III) and sections are given numbers, not Roman numerals (articles are given Roman numerals).

Quote from: The Democratic Constitution Resolution
1. The "Ratification Process Alteration Resolution" is hereby repealed.

2. The South shall ratify Amendments to the Third Constitution of the Republic of Atlasia, including ratification of a new Constitution, passed by the Senate through approval by vote of Southern Citizens.

3. In said vote, the Governor will promptly open the voting booth, and leave it open for seven (7) days.

4. A simple majority of Atlasian citizens registered in the South is required for the region's approval.

Passing the new Constitution will be one of the most important events in Atlasian history. I think the people of the South should have a say in voting on it. (And no, this will not block the ConCon from passage. If it was going to, I wouldn't be trying to pass this, now would I?)
