I, uh, know what current law is. I made this specific to health care as to override the "doctors" in the Mideast trying to determine what is a valid medical treatments. The federal government guarantees health care.

Senators of Altasia,

I would like to speak before you today in regards to the proposed Right to Treatment Act here in the senate, which is an attempt to use federal authority to block the Mideast Anti-Marijuana Bill currently being debated in the Mideast Assembly under the faulty guise of ensuring that patients will receive the medical treatment they need and deserve.

Should the Mideast bill pass, the doctors in the Mideast will still be able to prescribe THC in the form of Marinol (which is approved by the FDA in real life http://www.justice.gov/dea/ongoing/marinol.html). This means the set of circumstances where marijuana would need to be smoked for medical reasons and Marinol would not suffice would be undefined and in all likelihood rather remote. The law would still allow a pathway for these circumstances should they arise: the doctor would simply need to obtain permission from the Mideast Department of Health. This is not an attempt to co-opt the authority of doctors but rather a check against the abuse of a drug where prescription abuse is highly likely to occur. As my fellow Assemblyman Zuwo, the bill's sponser, has pointed out this is the system used in Switzerland where it works well to allow the use of cannabis by patients who truly need it and abuse by those who don't. Enacting this as federal law will undoubtedly lead to a legal scramble over what qualifies as "excessive restrictions" and of course that this bill qualifies as a “restriction”. With advent of Marinol, combined with the provisions of the proposed bill, this entire problem of medical marijuana is in my opinion a manufactured crisis aimed at defeating the control of a harmful substance often utilized for the purpose of recreational drug use. I urge the Senate to reject this proposed measure as an undue infringement on the Mideast Region which serves no legitimate federal interest.

FWIW, I believe this sort of discussion should be taking place in the "Senate Protest and Analysis Thread", not here.

Kudos to you.  I did was not sure exactly what the law was.  It was in 2006, I think.  Very good research.

As far as you argument...I see you are fan of Marokai's interpretation of a the word "demonstration" in Clause 13, Section 5, Article 1 of the Third Constitution.  I myself respectfully disagree with it.  I just don't see it that way, but then again I am a strict constructionist.

However, an argument could be made that the amendment to the above bill gives the region the right you are trying to take away from them.

As far as "doctors" (your quotes) and "valid medical treatments" (my sarcastic quotes, not at you but rather based on my experience), I have a friend who got a prescription for marijuana for headaches (probably due to the fact he was hung over) while his girlfriend got them for PMS.  I do question a lot of the "doctors" (this time my quotes, because the guy who gave the prescription was not an MD or anything medical related).  Thus, returning to my opinion that we should just legalize it and do away with the facade.

Just my opinion.  While I was typing, I saw Tmth's post.  he is right.  I just wanted to respond in a way that I know someone would see the whole discussion.  I will now depart.

Section 1 of the Campaigning for Invalidation of Votes Act shall be amended to read:

2. For the purposes of this statute, federal election shall extend to (but is not limited to) any election for President, Vice-President or Senator, any federal impeachment vote, and any public vote sanctioned by Law which requires that an officer of the federal government administer it.

3. The instruction or encouragement of a voter shall be interpreted to include any action which indicates the possibility of invalidating a vote to affect a federal election.

Environmental Conservation and Protection Act

Recognizing that:

1) Federal, regional, and local governments have set aside lands to conserve the natural beauty, resources, inhabitants, or environment in total, of an area

2) These lands have value to society beyond what the market may dictate

3) The federal government has the responsibility to ensure reasonable protections for lands designated for conservation

The Senate of the Republic of Atlasia shall place an immediate ban on all land transfers involving lands designated by the federal, local, or regional governments for conservation and/or environmental protection. The Secretary of Internal Affairs shall be required to review and approve any land transfer to private ownership involving federal land.

When designating protected lands, there shall from here on be two groups: land for restoration and land for conservation.

Land for restoration shall be given a specific time frame for the regeneration, restoration, and recovery of the natural environment before being available for purchase, of no less than fifteen (15) years.

Land for conservation shall be permanently protected, excepting the consent of the Senate, the Secretary of Internal Affairs, the President, the legislature of the region the land is located in, and the executive of the region the land is located in.

Formerly protected federal lands shall not be sold for less than typical market value, subject to an independent review board.

Rewarding Hard Work College Loan Forgiveness Scheme Bill

1. From 1 July 2012 any student enrolled in a publicly-funded University will be eligible to have their Federal Government-funded College loan debt reduced, depending on their academic performance at graduation.

1a. A student who receives a 4.0 GPA (or equivalent) will be eligible to have 75% of their College debt forgiven
1b. A student who received a GPA of between 3.5 and 3.99 (or equivalent)  will be eligible to have up to 50% of their College loan debt forgiven
1c. A student who receives a GPA of between 3.0 and 3.49 (or equivalent)  will be eligible to have up to 25% of their College debt forgiven.

2. The Scheme will operate alongside all other Government financial aid schemes in public universities. Debt forgiveness will be done by application at time of graduation, with University financial aid authorities making forgiveness determinations.

3. Any student who feels circumstances affected their ability to achieve a GPA which gave them access to debt forgiveness, or a higher level of debt reduction may apply for an appeal through regular internal University appeals processes, but any appeal must be lodged prior to graduation. Once a determination is made on the validity of the appeal, the student may apply for the original or adjusted debt reduction rate after graduation.

The current system

Corporate Taxes:
Percentage of:   Taxable Income
15%             $0 - $50,000
25%            $50,000 - $75,000
34%            $75,000 - $100,000
39%                   $100,000 - $335,000
34%              $335,000 - $10,000,000
35%            $10,000,000 - $15,000,000
38%            $15,000,000 - $18,333,333
35%            $18,333,333+

The new proposal

Corporate Taxes:   
   
Percentage of:   Taxable Income
12%                  $0 - $50,000
23%                  $50,000 - $75,000
30%                  $75,000 - $100,000
31%                  $100,000 - $335,000
33%                  $335,000 - $10,000,000
34%                  $10,000,000 - $15,000,000
35%            $15,000,000 +
There is understanding that many will not be pleased by any reduction in corporate taxation, but I ask that two considerations are undertaken.  The first is that we need jobs to be created in the private sector, we can only do so much from Government. The second is that these cuts will not be instituted until the Senate has passed a Bill closing corporate tax loopholes – so the practical Budgetary impacts will be minimal in relation to physical government revenue.

Personal income tax

Percentage of:     Single Individual
0%                    $0 - $8,025
14%                   $8,026 - $32,550
25%            $32,551 - $78,850
28%                   $78,851 - $164,550
35%                   $164,551 - $367,700
41%             $367,701 - $1,000,000
50%                   $1,000,001 - $2,500,000

Let's consider several facts:
1) I inherited a sizable queue when I became PPT. I'm trying to get through as much of it as I can. The most recent bills I've started debate on were originally introduced in July.
2) People generally lose interest in secession movements pretty quickly. Given how long your bill would have to wait due to the rather large queue, the secession movements would have probably already ceased.
3) It has no chance of passing anyway.

So let's just save ourselves some time and not bother with that bill... Tongue

Sorry, I stand with Jbrase. It's a ridiculous bill, yes, but it's not the PPT to decide what merits debate and what doesn't.

As a former thrice PPT, I have to side with bgwah atleast as far as his motivations go. The large queue's are big pain in the ass that slow down the Senate responsiveness to current issues. Typically you have a Senate that is really active and you get a lot of legislation, so much that the whole next Senate as well is spent passing last Senate's remaining legislation. A backlog got built up in the 42nd and we finally wiped it out by the end of the 43rd. Then it got built back up again in the 44th.

Mr. Big's actions here are completely legit as far as the OSPR is concerned.

The Pro Choice Act of 2011

The Republic of Atlasia hereby recognizes the independence of Georgia and Florida.

I am removing this as frivolous and unconstitutional. Sorry. Tongue

I ask you to reconsider as only the supreme court can say with certainty what is and is not unconstitutional, and if I recall, are you not the author of many past bills that would be considered frivolous? Tongue

Oh, now you say that? Roll Eyes
