Today is 4/20, a day that can now be celebrated in Atlasia due to the fact that we have decriminalized weed. However, I am not satisfied with the progress we have made on the civil liberties front yet, I am instructing Attorney General Harry S Truman to make cocaine related crimes the lowest possible priority (which will essentially decriminalize it). I wish I could go further then just unofficially decriminalizing it, but it is not within my powers. I will be introducing a bill to decriminalize cocaine, and other drugs, soon to the Senate and/or House, regardless of which parties win this weekend's elections.

Section 4 (Criminal Liability)
i. In order for a criminal conviction in the Republic of Atlasia to stand it is necessary that the case against a defendant or against multiple defendants be proven beyond all reasonable doubt.
ii. The basic standard of liability for cases concerning both Crimes Against Atlasia and Acts of Treason shall be as in the Common Law: actus reas non facit reum nisi mens sit rea. It must therefore be proven not only that a criminal act has taken place but that the citizen charged can be reasonably held to be fully responsible, whether by act or by omission, for that criminal act.
iii. In cases in which it is certain that a criminal act has been committed by a member of a group of persons, but that it is not certain which of those persons has committed the criminal act, then it shall be possible to convict all said group of persons of the criminal charge in question, provided it can be demonstrated that there was no attempt by that group of persons to prevent the criminal act from taking place.

Section 5 (Criminal Prosecution)
i. Trial of all Crimes against Atlasia and Acts of Treason shall be performed in full compliance with the provisions of Article I of the Fourth Constitution of the Republic of Atlasia. Breach of these provisions shall render any conviction unsafe.
ii. Defendants shall not be denied access to legal counsel from an active citizen of their choice, and also retain the right to waive their right to legal counsel. If a defendant has attempted without success to secure legal counsel or has, after a period of more than forty eight hours, declined to either seek or affirmatively waive legal representation, then the Department of Justice shall nominate an appropriately qualified citizen to act as Public Defendant for the duration of the trial. Said nominee must meet with the approval of the Presiding Judge in the trial in question and must be a person of upstanding moral character.
iii. The Judiciary is hereby mandated to create and to uphold all rules with respect to trial procedure, up to and including the matter of personal conduct, so long as these rules do not contradict any part of this Act. In the event of a gross breach of trial procedure, the Presiding Judge may choose to charge the person or persons responsible with Contempt of Court which shall be treated as a Crime against Atlasia as per Section 2, clause i of this Act.

Section 6 (Admissibility of Evidence)
i. The Presiding Judge may admit the following as evidence at his own discretion:
(a) Any actual statements, whether quoted in full or in part, made on the Atlas Forum that pertain to the trial. If these statements have been deleted from the Atlas Forum but a copy in the form of a screenshot has been made of them, then that copy in the form of a screenshot may be treated as equally admissible to an original quoted statement. If these statements have been deleted from the Atlas Forum, but survive – whether in full or in part – as quotations in the post of another Atlas Forum user, then these quoted fragments may also be treated as equally admissible to an original quoted statement.
(b) The sworn testimony of a citizen of the Republic of Atlasia who has witnessed the alleged offence or its planning or preparation at first hand, or who has witnessed credible evidence of conspiracy.
(c) An admission of guilt or culpability by the defendant in a thread on the Atlas Forum, or in a place viewed or heard by other persons, with recordings or testimony attributing to the same.
(d) Evidence obtained through proper investigation of the IP address from which the offence was perpetrated.
(e) Credible evidence presented to the Court by the Forum Moderators or by Dave Leip, the Forum Owner.
(f) Other forms of evidence that are credible in nature and which do not contradict this Act or the Constitution of the Republic of Atlasia may additionally be considered.
ii. The Presiding Judge has an absolute right to reject evidence (whether in whole or in part) that he or she feels to be tainted by procedural flaws, to be of dubious provenance or to wholly lack credibility.

Section 7 (Sentencing)
i. In the event of a conviction, sentencing shall be carried out by the Presiding Judge in accordance with the following guidelines:
(a) The standard punishment for both Crimes Against Atlasia and Acts of Treason shall be the removal of certain political rights – the right to hold office and the right to vote in federal or regional elections – of the guilty person or persons. The Presiding Judge may decide at his or her discretion on the exact combination of political rights to remove from the guilty person or persons. Subsequent references to sentence length refer to any and all combination of the above punishments.
(b) For all Crimes Against Atlasia and even for Acts of Treason there shall be no minimum sentence. In such exceptional cases as the Presiding Judge sees fit, he or she may opt to issue a Discharge, which shall mean that the guilty person or persons shall suffer no punishment further than the acquisition of a criminal record.
(c) The maximum sentence for all Crimes Against Atlasia other than Identity Theft or Electoral Intimidation shall be of one year in length.
(d) The maximum sentence for Identity Theft and Electoral Intimidation shall be of two year in length.
(e) The maximum sentence for all Acts of Treason and Terrorism shall be of three years in length.
(f) The Presiding Judge may decide, if there are adequate grounds, to suspend a sentence – in whole or in part – and instead place the guilty person or persons under a period of probation, the exact length of which shall be no longer and no shorter than the part of the sentence being suspended. Failure by the guilty person or persons to obey in full the terms of their probation shall result in the immediate imposition of their full sentence. Life Sentences may not be suspended.

The thing is, I can't actually sign these bills without those three signatures, VP Goldwater collected all of the signatures and delivered the signed and authorized bill to my desk a few minutes before this was put out, so it's not "better late than never".

Better late than never. Tongue
The thing is, I can't actually sign these bills without those three signatures, VP Goldwater collected all of the signatures and delivered the signed and authorized bill to my desk a few minutes before this was put out, so it's not "better late than never".
Yeah, the lateness is entirely my fault. For some reason I was thinking I already did things I actually didn't do yet, hence the lateness.

Not really sure what purpose the signatures serve, or why it took three weeks for somebody to notice they were missing, but okay. I'm glad the confusion has been cleared up, in any case. Smiley

The signatures is more of a certification, coupled with links to the vote. This way both houses have access to the other houses' debate and vote and thus avoid confusion over whether or not a bill had passed the other chamber, which has been a pretty significant problem prior to this congress. In fact most of the confusion regarding bills this congress dealt with those bills that passed in one of the chambers in the 4th or even a prior Congress like the Freedom to Drink Act and thus before this system was introduced.

It also helps us see that all three Congressional leaders are performing their Constitutional duties, especially the Vice President, where in the absence of a signature, it would just get slotted to the President and there would be no way for people to see the activity occurring in his very important role in managing bills between houses and between the Congress and the President.

It is possible that this one just got overlooked, because I include Goldwater in most all of my PMs to House members and I know communications between PiT and myself are also sent to Goldwater, so it is likely that it is just buried in that. It is a new system just introduced in the 5th Congress and so a few glitches is to be expected.

However, when you consider the fact that the previous 4th Congress only put two bills on my desk as President and as President Dfw received about a dozen from the 5th Congress, I think both the competence of the leaders involved and the soundness of the system generally, has been proven. I think the 5th is the most efficient and effective of all the Congresses so far and that is largely do to improvements in the noticeboards, and the presence of these "links certified with signatures".

As of this moment, I only recognize three regions, the Southern region, the Region of Fremont, and the Region of Lincoln. I do not recognize the State of Texas as it's own region. Should the citizens of Texas still want to establish their own region, it is my understanding that this is the process that they must follow:

http://uselectionatlas.org/AFEWIKI/index.php/Article_II_of_the_Fourth_Constitution Article II of the Constitution of Atlasia establishes three regions, thus this Article would need to be amended to make a fourth region. Amendments to the Constitution must be introduced to either the House or the Senate, the Amendment must then be passed by 2/3 of both House of Congress. Then, the Amendment must be passed by at least 2 out of the 3 regions by popular vote. Only then will the Federal Government of Atlasia recognize Texas as its own Region within Atlasia. As of now the Federal Government of Atlasia recognizes Texas as a part of the Southern Region of Atlasia.
