I rise to the podium to speak on a very important issue that affects Atlasians, whether cis or trans.

It's time to pass the Atlasia Says Trans Rights Act.


I seek passage of this bill that's laid upon us here. Vote AYE when it's time to vote!

Pretty sure most of Section III was already addressed in another bill.

I will support this, Iím glad the Senators listened to me and amended Section II, however, the only problem I have with this now is the title of Section II. If the bill were to pass a title like that could open up allegations of discrimination and court cases could open. I donít usually get into semantics but in this case itís probably for the best. Itís not even a cis tax anymore anyways.

Objecting to the motion since there really hasn't been enough discussion on this.
