Aye

I prefer to air on the side of having the debate as opposed to not.

With 1/3 of the senate objecting to the Vice President's action, this bill stays in the floor.

Emergency 62nd Senate Resolution

Whereas, the 62nd Senate of Atlasia recognizes the withdrawal of the only lawfully declared candidate, excluding Write-In candidacies, in the election for the PPT of the 62nd Senate,

Whereas, the 62nd Senate of Atlasia recognizes the need for a PPT to function appropriately,

Whereas, the 62nd Senate of Atlasia recognizes the pending Supreme Court case to solve the matter of Write-In candidacies in PPT elections,

The Dean of the Senate shall reopen the PPT declaration period for the election of the President Pro Tempore of the 62nd Senate for a period of 24 hours immediately following the passage of this bill. Following those 24 hours, the Dean of the Senate may administer the election of a PPT for no longer 48 hours, with Write-In candidacies permitted. The winner of the election shall be recognized by the Senate to be the PPT of the 62nd Senate.

In the absence of the Dean of the Senate due to a leave of absence, the most senior Senator who is not the Dean may act in the Dean's place for the purposes of this resolution.

This resolution shall not be construed to change the manner by which the PPT is elected in any session of Senate besides the 62nd Senate.  

I'm not sure the Senate has the power to delegate duties to the VP, so I made it the Dean.

A BILL
Recognizing the effects of media coverage of suicides and Mental Health, the Senate passes the following to ensure proper and up to date ethical and health guidelines are made available to media outlets.

Title: This bill is to be entitled The Robin Williams Memorial Suicide Copy-cat Prevention Act or DYCOY Mental Health Reform Act Part II

1. The Agency for Substance Abuse & Mental Health Services within the Department of Internal Affairs shall be responsible for the formulation of appropriate guidelines in conjunction with the agency for Health Resources & Services Administration, within the same said Department.

2. These guidelines are to provide appropriate boundaries for coverage of topics related to issues of mental health and suicides.

3. The focus of these guidelines shall be to maximize the amount of public knowledge and information whilst minimizing to the greatest extent possible adverse risks in the realm of stigmatization of those suffering from a mental illness.

4. As it relates to the coverage of suicides, the primary focus will be to be minimize the risk of the phenomenon known as "suicide copy-cats" whereby an individual suffering from similar conditions elects to commit suicide in the wake of news media coverage surrounding a person with those same conditions that committed suicide.

5. All of these guidelines be regarded as nonbinding legally, but shall it shall be the aim of the above agencies to establish them as generally accepted and followed throughout the news-media industry.

6. These agencies shall annually review and revise these standards based on the latest available research from peer reviewed and credible studies conducted within the fields of psychiatry and psychology.
