The Protection of Legal Region Functions Act
No federal official, when engaging in an effort to enforce federal law, may prohibit, obstruct or prevent in any way shape or form the functions of a Regional Government, according to their laws, that also aren't in violation of Federal Law.

This may end up as an Amendment.

A BILL

To curb wasteful spending by making 50 percent of year-end savings in salaries and expenses available for an additional fiscal year, and to use the remaining 50 percent for the purpose of deficit reduction.

Be it enacted by the Senate of the Republic of Atlasia assembled.

SECTION 1. TITLE

This act may be cited as the ‘Saving Over Spending Act of 2012.’

SECTION 2. FINDINGS

The Senate hereby finds and declares that

1.) A 1980 report by the Senate Committee on Government Affairs found that “spending at year-end may be the result of legitimate, planned, and worthwhile spending intended by the Senate…the Subcommittee (on Oversight of Government Management) found numerous examples in which agencies took short cuts in the last few weeks of the fiscal year that led to questionable contracts” and that “hurry-up procurement practices resulted in the purchase of millions of dollars worth of goods and services for which there was no demonstrated current need.”

SECTION 3. EXTENSION OF AVAILABILITY OF YEAR-END SAVINGS IN SALARIES AND EXPENSES.

1.) 50 percent of an unobligated balance available for salaries and expenses that would otherwise expire at the end of a fiscal year shall remain available for expenditure for the subsequent fiscal year, and 50 percent shall be used for the purpose of deficit reduction on return to the general fund of the Treasury.  Unobligated balances carried forward to a subsequent fiscal year under this subsection may not be taken into account in determining the amount by which an agency will be funded for such subsequent fiscal year.

2.) The Game Moderator will be responsible for oversight and reporting how much money which is saved by this legislation is allocated toward the deficit per year.

3.) This act shall go into effect at the start of the next fiscal year.

SECTION 1. TITLE

This act may be cited as the 'Care For Homeless Pets Act of 2012.'

SECTION 2. FINDINGS

The Senate hereby finds and declares that

1.) Due to rising homelessness and foreclosures across the county, Atlasia’s pet owners have been forced to abandon their pets.

1.) Shelter eligibility/grant distribution for the ANTHP will be set as follows:

2.) The shelter must be municipal, state, or government run in order to be eligible for benefits of the ANTHP.

3.) Shelters that participate in the ANTHP will receive grants based on the foreclosure and homelessness rate in the area, as well as the number of shelters in the vicinity that participate in the program.  Grants will range from $500-$2,000 annually based on these factors.

SECTION 5. FUNDING

1.) Money for the ANTHP will be collected as follows:

2.) $10 million in starting funds will be allocated from the federal budget.

3.) A “Patriots for Pets” fund will be started that will ask for funds from the general public.  The amount given from each donor will be deducted from participating donors’ taxes.  The program shall take effect only after the government accumulates an additional $20 million via donations.

SECTION 6. GUIDELINES

1.) Guidelines for the ANTHP will be set as follows:

2.) Shelters covered by the program will shelter animals for three months. Pets from the same family will be housed in the same shelters, if possible.

3.) During the three month period, the family of the animal/s being sheltered will be given the option to either have the animal/s displayed for adoption, or not to.

4.) If at any time during the three months the family becomes financially stable or wishes to reclaim their pet for any reason, they may do so.

5.) At the end of the three month period, the family may choose to reclaim the pet/s or give full custody of the pet/s to the shelter to display for adoption.  The shelter may not euthanize any animals it has ownership of.
