A reintroducing of Cassius's tabled amendment

Federal Marriage Amendment

1. This amendment defines marriage in the Republic of Atlasia as consisting of a union of two persons, of no closer degree of consanguinity than that of second cousinship.

2. No level of government, whether at federal or regional level, may confer marriage or the legal incidents of marriage upon any other form of union not covered by the definition above.[/quote]

Given that we just voted to table that amendment, and given that I see no real reason to bring it up no less than a week after it was tabled, I am going to remove the reintroduced Federal Marriage Amendment from the queue, citing the following:

Given that JCL stated his opposition to the Federal Marriage Amendment during the debate over said amendment, and given that it was voted down by a strong majority, I am declaring the reintroduction of this amendment frivolous. JCL, you have 72 hours to challenge this action in a public post. If 1/3rd of your colleagues decide that this legislation is not frivolous, I will gladly bring it to the floor so that we can table it again and not waste our time with such an inane proposal.

I brought it back for a simple up or down vote. Cassius deserves to have this bill voted up or down. Regardless of my own position, tabling a bill is the frivolous act here. This is my public post.

Support for Carers Bill 2014

1. This Bill will amend the Comprehensive Social Security Act (FL 45-10), creating a new Section 6. Therefore the existing section 6 will become section 7 and so forth.

2. This Bill will create section 6 to protect the interests of carers, including the creation of a new income support payment for those who devote their time and energy to care for family and friends who are not able to fully care for themselves.

3. In order to qualify a person must be the primary carer of an individual either under the age of eighteen or covered by a payment under the existing Comprehensive Social Security Act (FL 45-10),. This will ensure income support for those caring for people with medically diagnosed physical or mental disabilities, who has withdrawn themselves from the full-time workforce.

4. A graduated payments system will be dependent on their previous income with a cap of $60,000 per year.
a) less than $18,000 per year - 75% of previous income
b) $18,001 - $30,000 per year - 50% of previous income
c) $30,001 - $45,000 per year - 35% of previous income
d) $45,001 - $60,000 per year - 20% of previous income
e) more $60,001 - qualifies for base carers payment of $550 per month.

5. This will be funded by increasing the existing Social Security Insurance premium to from 6.50% to 6.75% from 1 January 2015.

6. Recipients of a payment under s4 of this Bill are entitled to work for up to 20 hours per week without their payment being affected.

Considering all the retread TNF bills, it is a shock that it didn't have to be used, and that is entirely because I believe that people should have an equal chance at the floor and as long as the clogging rule is in effect, not canning bills is not counterproductive to that goal.

Ending Financial Havens for Islamic State

Noting the aggressive and abhorrent behaviour of those fighting under the banner of 'Islamic State' (also known as IS, ISIS and ISIL) - Altasia should do everything possible to ensure that this organisation of terror is not able to generate revenues in Atlasia.

1. Any bank account, held in the name of known IS actors, in Atlasia is to be frozen immediately. This includes people who are fighting for them, whom are not currently in the Atlasia and people who are supporting them in Atlasia.

2. Any organisation who is known to do business with IS support organs or have knowingly generated revenues for IS or those support organs are to have bank accounts frozen and any contracts between those bodies and any Federal Atlasian body will be ended immediately.

3. The Senate will urge the Secretary of External Affairs to work with friends and allies around the world to make the same undertakings.
