Amendment to Discourage Small Type Use

Findings-
Copying and pasting small type into the bar is far more difficult then highlighting white type- which achieves the same purpose

Amendment-
Any person who used small type shall be forced to wear nipple rings at least ten inches in circumference for a period of one year.

I'm not aware that Atlasia has Super PACs.  More over, what is the point of campaign finance laws when political campaigns do not actually collect money in any form?

We have 2, I believe: Freedom PAC (run currently by Jerseyrules, supporting 20RP12) and Atlasia Renaissance Super!!! PAC (run currently by Napoleon, supporting "a progressive reformist message").

Fits the game perfectly. Also, the PPT would probably appreciate not cluttering this thread anymore. This belongs in the Senate Protest and Analysis Thread, I believe.

Indeed, in fact it is a criminal offense according to the OSPR, provided the Senate has passed a law specifying the punishments for the offense.

Three pieces of legislation I'd like to introduce:

Quote
Anti-Conscription Amendment

Article VI, Section VIII of The Atlasian Constitution is amended to read:
Neither shall the Republic of Atlasia nor any of its constituent regions enforce compulsory conscription upon any citizen.

Quote
The Competitiveness and Equity in Taxation Act

1.  All current federally-collected taxes and tax credits, as outlined in The Fiscal Responsibility Act, Tax Increase Act, Estate Tax Reform Act, Break the Chains Act (Take 2), Atlasia Clean Energy Act, Green Homes Act, Make Internet Sales Fair Act, Social & Economic Development Zone Improvement Act, Viva Las Atlasia Act, Capital Gains Tax Co-Operative Act, Anti-Speculation Act, Public Transportation Encouragement Act, Section 6 of the Public Housing Act, Social Security Taxation Act 2009, Section 3 of the Help Atlasia Study Act of 2009, Section 3 of the Environmental Policy Act of 2009, End Plastic Bag Pollution Act, Dependent Child and Income Tax Credit Act, Carbon Import Tax Act, Carbon Tax Act, Carbon Tax Residential Relief Act, National Sin Tax Act, Sections 6-9 of the National Energy Act, Section 2c of the Atlasia National Healthcare Act, the Hiring Incentives Act, and any taxes and tax credits not here listed, are hereby repealed.

2.  The Senate shall produce a budget request once per year, in order to fund all federal programs.

3.  The Regions shall be required to raise funds (by taxes, fees, other revenues, or sale of debt) to fund the Senate's budget request.

4.  Each region shall be required to raise at least the amount of funds determined by the following formula: (Senate's budget request)*(fraction of registered voters in that region)*(100% - unemployment rate)

For example, if a region contained 1/4 of all registered voters, and had a 10% unemployment rate, and the Senate requested $1 trillion in funds, the region would be required to raise at least ($1 trillion)(1/4)(1 - .1) = $225 billion.

5.  Any region that does not meet these funding requirements may, at the discretion of the Senate, have its highway funding, and regional funding under the Atlasian National Healthcare Act, reduced up to the level that the region is in arrears.

6.  Any region which provides more funds than are required will have their funding requirements reduced by that same amount the next year.

7.  The Senate may increase or reduce funding requirements on each region, but each increase or reduction must be uniform percentage-wise across all regions.

8.  The game moderator shall determine the amount of revenue each region's policies provide.

Quote
Foreign Policy Transparency and Rationalization Amendment

1. Atlasian military forces are hereby only authorized to use lethal force in the following circumstances:

  • In the course of a war against a foreign government, having been declared by the Senate
  • In self-defense or in the defense of other Atlasian military forces
  • While in the normal course of their duties, to directly defend civilians against attack
  • In the course of the apprehension of criminals
  • To prevent a clear and immediate threat of the launch, release, or detonation of weapons of mass destruction, including nuclear fission bombs, lethal chemical agents, or lethal biological organisms

2. Atlasian military forces may only be deployed abroad in countries on whose controlling government the Senate has declared war, or whose controlling government has requested the presence of Atlasian military forces.

3. The President may only exercise his or her powers as commander-in-chief of the Atlasian military in the context of wars having been declared by the Senate.

4. Atlasian military forces may not be placed under foreign or international command except by vote of the Senate.  Atlasian forces under foreign or international command may not offensively participate in conflicts not declared as wars by the Senate.  Atlasian forces under foreign or international command may be withdrawn from foreign or international command at any time at the discretion of their Atlasian commanding officers.

The Omnibus Miscellaneous Government Oversight and Reform Committee Resolution

This resolution shall create the Omnibus Miscellaneous Government Oversight and Reform Committee (OMGOR) as a special committee of the Senate tasked with investigating Administration Officials, performance of government officials, government efficiency, Forum Affairs, and other issues that relate indirectly to one of these tasks.

The committee shall be composed of three sitting members of the Atlasian Senate, selected by the full membership of that body.

Once selected, the President of the Senate shall select the Chairman from amongst those three members. The Chairman shall open the thread and preside over all hearings and functions of the Committee.

[Location], [Date]


As presented to the Senate
by the Secretary of External Affairs
by Command of the President
[Month, Year]



TREATY BETWEEN THE REPUBLIC OF ATLASIA AND THE STATE OF ISRAEL FOR DEFENSE AND SECURITY COOPERATION
The Republic of Atlasia and the State of Israel, hereinafter referred to as "The Parties",

Recalling that their foreign and defense policies are founded on common interests, values and responsibilities,

Mindful of their rights and obligations under the Charter of the United Nations,

Believing that greater defense and security cooperation strengthens the ties between their nations and international security,

Bearing in mind that they do not see situations arising in which the vital interests of either Party could be threatened without the vital interests of the other also being threatened,

Determined to address strategic challenges, promote international peace and security, ensure collective security, deter and dissuade against potential aggressors and counter threats, including terrorism, proliferation of weapons of mass destruction and cyber-attacks,

Seeking to improve further the effectiveness and interoperability of their armed forces,

Recalling that the control of their armed forces, the decision to employ them and the use of force shall always remain a matter of national sovereignty,

Convinced that a technological and industrial defense base which is robust and competitive is both a strategic and an economic necessity for the two Parties,

Have agreed as follows:

ARTICLE 1
Objectives
