AND WHEREAS: International organizations have declared that 2017 could see the advent of four concurrent famines in South Sudan, northern Nigeria, Somalia, and Yemen;

A BILL

To impose a tax on the burning of carbon-based fuels, and to incentivize minimizing carbon emissions through conservation, substitution, and innovation


Be it enacted by the Congress of the Republic of Atlasia assembled;


SECTION 1. TITLE

This legislation may be cited as the Carbon Tax Act.

SECTION 2. FINDINGS

Whereby the Congress of the Republic of Atlasia hereby acknowledges:

That increasing levels of CO2 in the Earth's atmosphere are destabilizing established climate patterns and damaging ecosystems;

That rapid reductions in Atlasia's and other nations' carbon emissions are essential to avoid runaway climate destabilization and minimize severe weather events, inundation of coastal cities, spread of diseases, loss of forests, failure of agriculture and water supply, infrastructure destruction, forced migrations, political upheavals, and international conflict;

Current prices of electricity, gasoline, and other fuels reflect little or none of the long-term costs from climate change or even near-term health costs of burning fossil fuels, and this suppresses incentives to develop and deploy carbon-reducing measures such as energy efficiency

SECTION 3. TAX RATES

Following are tax rates consistent with charging $50.00 per ton of carbon (not carbon dioxide) emitted.
 Consistent with the intent of phasing this level in over a five-year period, the rates for years 1 through 4 will be calculated by multiplying the rates in the table by 20%, 40%, 60% and 80%, respectively.

All rates are expressed in dollars per million Btu of fuel.

---
Bituminous coal ----- $1.40
Subbituminous coal - $1.45
Lignite ----------------- $1.47
Crude Oil -------------- $1.12
Gasoline --------------- $1.07
Residual Fuel Oil ----- $1.18
Natural Gas ----------- $0.80
---

SECTION 4. REBATES FOR CO2 CONTROL

Paying entities may be eligible for a partial or total rebate of the tax payments if the paying eneiety can prove that some or all of the carbon dioxide emissions will be kept from entering the Earth's atmosphere for millennia.

SECTION 5. EQUAL DISTRIBUTION OF FEDERAL REVENUES TO ATLASIAN CITIZENS (GREEN CHECKS)

100% of revenues generated by the carbon tax shall be distributed on an equal basis to all Atlasian households on a quarterly time basis via cheque, which shall henceforth be referred to as "green checks."

Protecting Our Students Act
To strip federal funding from schools that do not comply with mandates regarding LGBT students

1. Federal funding for schools that do not comply with mandates regarding LGBT, racial, and religious minority students is hereby revoked.

2. "Mandates regarding LGBT, racial, and religious minority students" shall be defined as mandates, legislative or otherwise, made by the Atlasian federal government that orders schools to protect the interests and rights of students who identify as gay, lesbian, bisexual, transgender, or any other legally recognized sexuality or gender identity, as well as students of a racial minority, including black, Latino, Asian, Native American, or another legally recognized non-Caucasian race, as well as students of a religious minority such as Islam, Judaism, Atheism, Buddhism, Hinduism, or another legally recognized non-Christian or Christian denominational faith.

3. This act does not apply to mandates set forth by the regions regarding the provisions outlined in Section 2, nor will it apply to funding provided by the regions.

4. Schools that do not provide adequate academic experiences for students outlined in Section 2, whether by denying access to a bathroom according to gender identity, time to pray in accordance with a student's religious beliefs, dietary accommodations in accordance with a student's religious or health needs, or any other religious, medical, or cultural standard, shall be subject to revocation of any federal funding they receive.

5. Accommodations for students shall not extend into unrealistic demands, which may include accommodations not outlined in this act, or any other federal mandate. Accommodations may not be made that give students outlined in Section 2 unfair advantages over other students.

6. Schools that have their federal funding stripped due to a perceived violation outlined in this act may appeal the decision and will be given one hundred eighty (180) days or six (6) months to provide evidence that they are complying with this act. In the event that they are able to prove that they are complying with this act, their funding shall be restored.

7. This act will take effect immediately upon passage.

Section 2: Sex Worker Regulations
1. Persons will be required to apply for a license through their county courthouse to engage in sex work. To apply for a license, the person in question must have been free of all sexually transmitted infections (STIs) for at least ninety days and be over the age of eighteen. The application and licensing process will require an STI test and a valid birth certificate, as well as a criminal background check. Once the applicant has finished this process, he or she will be issued a license by his or her local county clerk and will be allowed to engage in the sale of sexual services for a period of ninety-days. Once the ninety day period is up, sex workers will be required to have an additional STI test before being eligible to continue work. If they are unable to pass the test, they will have their license revoked for a period of ninety-days. After the ninety-day period is up, they will be allowed to take another STI test, unless the infection in question is incurable, in which case they will be unable to reapply for a sex worker license.
2. Sex workers will be required by law to carry their licenses on them at all times, or will be prohibited from working. Sex workers will be required by law to surrender their licenses to law enforcement officers on demand. Sex workers found in violation of this provision will be unable to work for a period of ninety-days.
3. Sex workers will be required to be in possession of at least one form of contraception while working. Any person who requests the use of contraception or requests a sex worker to use contraception may request a refund if not available. Sex workers found in violation of this provision will be unable to work for a period of ninety-days and will have to undergo additional STI testing.
4. Sex workers will be required to report their income upon renewal of their license, that is, every ninety-days. Sex workers' income will be taxed as any other income, with an applicable sales tax levied on all transactions performed.
5. No Sex worker may engage in the sale of sexual services with any person under the age of eighteen.

Section 3: Brothel Regulations
1. Sex worker co-operatives shall be permitted by law, as shall privately owned brothels and publicly owned brothels.
2. A brothel is hereby defined as any establishment in which the sale of sexual services is conducted or permitted by law.
3. Brothels shall be subject to regulation and inspection in the interest of sex workers, public health, and the community as a whole. Sex workers employed by brothels shall be allowed to organize unions and collectively bargain with their employers, be they public or private. Regulations mentioned in Section 2 shall apply to sex workers employed by brothels as well. Brothels shall be required to keep licensing information, STI testing information, and all other documentation on their premises, and will be responsible for reporting income in a timely manner, as would any other business.
4. All brothels and sex workers must sign an individual contract detailing the terms of their employment, and no sex worker may be terminated for refusing to engage in services not detailed in their contract.

Section 4: Zoning Restrictions
1. Brothels shall be prohibited from being built within one-mile of churches, schools and other academic institutions. However, brothels shall not be required to move if such places are built near an already existing brothel establishment.
2. Localities may restrict public advertisement for sex workers or brothels but sex workers shall not be prohibited from advertising their services through speech or personal conversations.
