This Chamber holds the following about the State of Florida:
1. that it is the capital of weirdness in the South
2. that it is a place our esteemed colleague theSaint has connections to
3. that it should not be sawed off (by a fantastical rabbit or anyone else) and left to go adrift as an island in the Atlantic Ocean, and if that somehow happened then we as a region would be worse off
4. that it is home to a great many accomplished Atlasians in both past and present
5. that its biggest metropolitan area (South Florida, frequently defined to constitute Broward, Palm Beach, and Miami-Dade Counties) has a rich culture with substantial Latin American influence
6. that it is an indispensable part of the South's economy
7. that its people do an admirable job living with mosquitoes and other perils of humidity every day, and in dealing with dangers mankind confronts in most coastal areas, especially hurricanes
8. that, especially outside its urbanized areas, it is allegedly infested with alligators at every turn
9. that too many people harbor ill feelings towards it and its people
10. that we are blessed to have it in the South and in Atlasia

Regional Statutory Pay as You Go Act

Sec. 1 - Definitions and Applications

 (1) The term ``BBEDCA'' means the Balanced Budget and
        Emergency Deficit Control Act of 1985.

  (2) The definitions set forth in section 3 of the
        Congressional Budget and Impoundment Control Act of 1974 and in
        section 250 of BBEDCA shall apply to this bill, except to the
        extent that they are specifically modified as follows:
                    (A) The term ``outyear'' means a fiscal year one or
                more years after the budget year.
                    (B) In section 250(c)(8)(C), the reference to the
                food stamp program shall be deemed to be a reference to
                the Supplemental Nutrition Assistance Program.

(3)
         (A) The term ``budgetary effects'' means the amount by
        which PAYGO legislation changes outlays flowing from direct
        spending or revenues relative to the most recently passed budget and shall be determined on the basis of estimates prepared as detailed below. Budgetary
effects that increase outlays flowing from direct spending or decrease
revenues are termed ``costs'' and budgetary effects that increase
revenues or decrease outlays flowing from direct spending are termed
``savings''. Budgetary effects shall not include any costs associated
with debt service.

            (B) For purposes of these definitions, off-budget effects
        shall not be counted as budgetary effects.

 (4) The term ``PAYGO legislation'' or a ``PAYGO Act'' refers
        to a bill or joint resolution that affects direct spending or
        revenue relative to the most recently passed budget.

Sec. 2 - Determination of Budgetary Effects of PayGo Acts

Prior to a vote on passage of a PAYGO Act originated or amended by the Chamber, the Game Moderator, a Deputy Game Moderator, the Governor, or a person authorized to act on behalf of one of these individuals shall submit for printing on the Atlas Forum a statement titled ``Budgetary Effects of PAYGO Legislation'' which shall include an estimate of the budgetary effects of that Act. Such a statement shall establish the budgetary effects of the PAYGO Act for the purposes of this Act.

            i) Effect.--The latest statement submitted prior to passage shall supersede any prior
                      statements submitted and shall be valid only if the PAYGO Act is not
                      further amended.

            ii) The PAYGO Act may not be passed until a valid statement has been submitted.

Sec. 3 Effectiveness of PAYGO Acts

A) If a PAYGO Act is determined to have no budgetary effect, or actually saves money, it may be passed under normal rules.

B) If a PAYGO Act is determined to add money to the deficit, it:

 i) Must Pass with a 2/3 majority, including the vote of at least one delegate from a party other than that of the Speaker.

 ii) Shall not take effect until after the next budget is passed, unless the emergency slot is being used, or unless the Chamber separately authorizes an earlier effective date. A vote for an earlier effective date must be separate from the vote on final passage, and it must pass with a 2/3 majority, including the vote of at least one delegate from a party other than that of the Speaker.

C) The Governor's veto of a PAYGO Act that adds to the deficit may only be overridden by a unanimous vote of the Chamber if it consists of 5 members, or by a 6/7ths Majority if it consists of 7 members.

I'd ask that the following be introduced into the Civilian Slot:

Quote
Budget Clarification Amendment

The following change shall be made to the Constitution, Article III, Section 10:

Quote
10. The governor is obligated to present a bi-yearly budget by March 1 and September 1 of each year. The structure and procedure for the budget process are to be determined by law. The budget of all government activities is to be voted on by the legislature after a normal debate period. The Budget shall remain in effect until one year from its date of passage, or March 21st of the calendar year after that of its passage, whichever is earlier. The governor is obligated to ensure that the budget does not provide for any deficits except in times of emergency or war, a condition the legislature must successfully endorse by a two-thirds majority. All budgets must include a plan for revenue and taxation.


This amendment eliminates the requirement for a second budget each year, and clarifies how long the budget remains in effect.
