I'm against this, for entirely self-interested reasons (I was the 8th one elected!)

If it becomes an issue, I'll bow out of the first race this takes effect to increase your chances. Tongue

And, guys, how do you feel about the Lt Govship? Axe it, or leave it as is?

But I want you to be in the assembly!

Also, get rid of it.

Just an odd thought - what about trying a single legislator and a plural executive?  Would be interesting to see how that plays out in practice.

Why is it so incredibly necessary that schoolchildren get Hepatitis B vaccinations?

Luckily, we live in a first world country in which vaccination rates for Hepatitis B and related diseases are high and infection rates are low.  The majority of unvaccinated children are so because their parents objected to the vaccination for religious, or medical reasons, or due to personal choice.  The main effect of this bill would be to publicly identify the unvaccinated children at school, opening them to social ostracization and ridicule.  Furthermore, a simple cost-benefit analysis would reveal that the money would save far more lives if it were spent on, say, tuberculosis vaccines in the developing world, or the like.  The only people who should be under any obligation to vaccinate their children are the parents, and it ought to be their decision alone.  Parents do not always make the right decision, but adopting a one size fits all policy will not help matters.  This is a wasteful, expensive program that will do little good (indeed, do some bad) for the considerable investment, of other peoples' money, which they should decide how to spend themselves, involved.

Nay

(Representatives should consider that Atlasia already has a UHC system that pays for vaccinations in full.  This measure therefore does nothing but to harass those who choose not to be vaccinated).

Morgan hasn't voted yet, guys.

You said it would be 24 hours to vote, it's been like 30.

I second the motion to shorten debate.  I do not see how this measure is controversial.

A necessary thing.  Is it constitutional?

I accept the amendments as friendly - and for the record, this, in a sense, raises the drinking age since the Regional Legal Drinking Age Act actually abolishes the Federal drinking age altogether.

I'm sorry - I suppose I'm not familiar with the relevant issues.  What do you mean by this?

Also, if this passes, I'd like to motion to amend so that it appears in its original form.

So, as of right now, there's no drinking age at all?

Nope.

Unless the Northeast legislated this in a session before my time, that isn't on the wiki.

Okay, then.

Nay.

There's no minimum drinking age in China or Portugal - somehow their societies continue to function.

Wait, that was the amendment?

I suppose I'll be voting the same way on the actual bill.
