Per the Official Senate Procedural Resolution, this is the new thread for the introduction of legislation.

If you are not a Senator or the President of the Senate, it is against Senate rules for you to post in this thread.  This thread is solely for the introduction of legislation; it is not for debate on proposed legislation!  Each comment from somone other than a Senator introducing legislation makes the job of the President Pro Tempore and the President of the Senate more difficult.  Debate time will be given at a later time and will continue until debate has ceased; please resist the temptation to debate something in this thread.

Please abide by these rules.  Thank you.

Relevant text of resolution:
Article 3 of OSPR:
Section 1: Rules on Legislation Introduction
1. The PPT shall establish and maintain a thread for Senators to introduce legislation, to be further known in this document as the Legislation Introduction Thread. Only Senators who presently hold elected office may be allowed to post in this thread. Any Citizens or Individuals who post in this thread may be subject to legal action pursuant to the relevant clauses in federal Criminal Law legislation so passed by the Senate.
2. The PPT shall also establish and maintain a thread for all Citizens and Individuals of Atlasia to give opinions, thoughts, suggestions and ideas about recently introduced legislation or legislation presently under debate on the Senate floor. This clause is not meant to deny Citizens or Individuals their right to post on Senate debate threads dealing with specific legislation presently being debated on the Senate floor.

I'm not going to be stickying this because nothing is wrong with the old two threads. We can continue to use them so this is really unnecessary.

I intend to enforce the rules this time.  The old thread is full of debate, and the debate thread has sat dormant.  The OSPR gives me the right to create a new thread.

There's very little legislation in the pipeline, Senators, so introduce your bills!  They'll receive quick action by the full Senate.

On behalf of SoFA Ernest.

Campaigning Bill

1. Findings
   (a) In the recent case of True Democrat v. Department of Forum Affairs, the Supreme Court found that due to the lack of any definition of what constituted campaigning, only the narrowest of definitions could be used.
   (b) A narrow definition of campaigning allows for some campaigning activities to escape the sanctions intended to curb them.
   (c) The Senate has not only power under Article V Section 1 Clause 3 to punish campaigning under the limited definition ascribed to the term by the Supreme Court, but a broader power under Article I Section 4 Clause 6 and Article II Section 2 Clause 2 to regulate elections so as to prevent campaigning type activities.

2. Definitions
   (a) The term "criminal campaigning" shall mean content in an ballot post clearly and obviously designed to persuade other voters. It shall include any direct exhortation to voters in general or particular to vote in a certain manner.  It shall also include any use of an image or a hyperlink containing references to one more candidates (including potential write-in candidates), save one copied from the post containing the official ballot for that election.
   (b) The term "civil campaigning" shall mean any expression of the reasons for casting a particular vote that does not constitute criminal campaigning.  The term does not include any expression of the difficulty of deciding how to vote or any unexplained statement that one or more candidates are fit or unfit to serve in an elected office.

3. Civil Campaigning
   (a) If an administrator of a voting booth determines that a post contains civil campaigning, he shall invaldate the ballot only for those offices for which civil campaigning occured.
   (b) The voter may within 72 hours of the determiniation of an occurance of civil campaigning make an administrative appeal to the Secretary of Forum Affairs, giving his reasons for why the activity should not be considered civil campaigning.
   (c) If the Secretary determines that civil campaigning has not occurred, the ballot shall be counted for that office.
   (d) If the Secretary determines that civil campaigning has occurred, or if the Secretary fails to inform the voter of his determination within 72 hours of the voter making his appeal, the voter may appeal to the Supreme Court.
   (e) The Supreme Court may choose whether or not to hear the case.
   (f) If the result of an adminstrative or judicial appeal could affect the outcome of an election, any Justice of the Supreme Court may issue an injuction barring the carrying out of the effect of that outcome until either all appeals have been exhausted or the result would no longer affect the outcome.

4. Criminal Campaigning
   (a) If the administrator of a voting booth determines that a post contains criminal campaigning, he shall invalidate the ballot only for those offices for which criminal campaigning occured and refer the evidence to the Attorney General for prosecution.
   (b) If the Attorney General determines that he will not prosecute for criminal campaigning, then the content shall be treated as if it were civil campaigning.
   (c) If the Attorney General fails to determine whether he will prosecute within 24 hours of receiving a referral under subsection (a), then the voter may begin an administrative appeal as if the offense were civil campaigning. Such an adminstrative appeal shall be immediately suspended if the Attorney General determines to prosecute, but any rulings made as a result of the administrative appeal shall stand until overruled by the trial court.
   (d) If the Attorney General fails to determine whether he will prosecute within 168 hours of receiving a referral under subsection (a), then all criminal charges shall be dropped.
   (e) If the voter is found guilty of criminal campaigning, then the court shall invalidate  the ballot only for those offices for which criminal campaigning occured and may additionally impose a penalty of the suspension of voting rights for a period not to exceed 120 days, or in lieu of such penalty, may impose a probationary period of not to exceed 1 year, during which the court may impose the penalty if the voter violates the terms of probation.
   (f)  If the voter is found not guilty of criminal campaigning, then the court shall also determine if the action constituted civil campaigning and order the official results of the election adjusted accordingly.

In light of the Flexi-Time Amendment being ratified by the Regions, I introduce the following additional clause - in green - to Section 10: Administration of Voting Booths of the Electoral System Reform Act:

Modified Electoral System Reform Act

===Section 10: Administration of Voting Booths===
1. Whenever possible, the Secretary of Forum Affairs, or the Deputy Secretary of Forum Affairs, shall be the administrator of the voting booth. If both shall be absent or unable to administer the voting booth, then the President shall designate an executive officer to do so instead.
2. The administrator of a voting booth shall be free to design the ballot as he or she sees fit, as long as the content of the ballot is clear and unambiguous.
3. The administrator of a voting booth shall post links to all relevant statute regarding electoral law on the ballot.
4. The administrator of a voting booth shall give registered voters three days advance public notice, in both the Fantasy Elections Forum and the Voting Booth, of the hours in which voting shall take place for all regular and special Senate elections

On behalf of Brandon H, I introduce this amendment to Section 5 of the Electoral System Reform Act:

Second Modified Electoral System Reform Act

Section 5 of the Electoral System Reform Act is stricken and replaced with:

Section 5: Tied Run-off Elections
If the Run-off Election procedure specified in section 4 results in a tie, then:

1. One of the tied candidates may concede their portion of the term. The rules for determining the winner shall proceed based on as if the number tied candidates is reduced by one.
2. The two candidates shall each serve a Senate session.
   a. If one and only one of the tied candidates is an incumbent, then that candidate shall serve the first session.
   b. If the same two candidates were serving as co-senators as a result of a tie in the last election, then the candidate who served the second session during the previous term shall serve the first session this term.
c. Else the candidate whose name comes first alphabetically shall serve the first session.
3. In the event of a tie between more than two candidates:
   a. The tied candidates may make any agreement they see fit.
   b. If an agreement can not be made by (a), the Senate shall either:
      i.  Select one candidate to serve the entire term.
      ii. Select a schedule that will allow all tied candidates to serve a portion of the term.
4. Only the sitting senator may vote on legislation.
5. When the President makes a nomination, both co-senators shall vote, but their vote shall only be counted as a single vote. If the two votes oppose each other then their vote shall be counted as a vote in favor of the nominee.
6. If one co-senator is elected or appointed to another office, than the other co-senator shall assume all the role of a full senator.


BTW, in light of the previous amendment to this Act and that I'm still waiting to hear from the SoFA since he raised it whether or not I need to introduce an amendment to that will both:

   Strike Sections 1 through to 4 of the Electoral System Reform Act and replace these with Sections 1-3 of the Unified Electoral Code Act and introduce an amendment which will renumber Sections 5 through to 17, Sections 4 to 16; or
   Just introduce a renumbering amendment

However, Im of the opinion that the Peter Will Fix It Act addressed the striking of Sections 1 through to 4 in the event of them being rejected in a national public poll against, which they were; thereby, requiring Sections 1-3 of the Unified Electoral Code Act be incorporated into the Electoral System Reform Act

If this be the case, Ill introduce the renumbering amendment but if not then Ill propose the following Bill, which will address the points Ive just raised:

Hawk's ESRA Fix It Bill

Section 1

1. Following the rejection of Sections 1 through to 4 of the Electoral System Reform Act in a national public poll, said sections are, hereby, stricken from said Act.
2. Consequently, Sections 1 through to 3 of the Unified Electoral Code Act are, hereby, incorporated into the Electoral System Reform Act.

Section 2

Sections 5 through to 17 of the Electoral System Reform Act are, hereby, renumbered Sections 4 to 16.

In nutshell, are both Sections 1 and 2 required or just Section 2? Because it might be an idea to resolve this matter before commencing with the "Flexi-Time" and "Split-Term" amendments

Atlasian-Jordan Free Trade Bill

1. No tariffs, customs, or restrictions on movement of goods, except those that have been outlawed by the destination or interim nation, shall exist between the Republic of Atlasia and Jordan.
2. The United States-Jordan Free Trade Agreement is repealed.
3. The President and other officers of the Atlasian Government shall take such actions as may be necessary to implement the provisions of this act.

Of course, should my amendment to the original Atlasian-Israel-Jordan Free Trade Bill be defeated then this Bill shall be withdrawn
