Cat Amongst the Pigeons Bill

Recognising that there are parties at all sides at fault for recent conflict in the Caucasus region;

Condemning those who sought to escalate the conflict to the detriment of all the peoples of the region;

Seeing that it is often better to recognise things as they are rather than bury one's head in the ground;

And in the belief that the right to self-determination is a right of tremendous importance;

It is agreed as follows...

1. The Republic of Atlasia hereby recognises the independence of the Republic of Abkhazia.

2. The Republic of Atlasia hereby recognises the independence of the Republic of South Ossetia.

3. Subject to the recognition of the Republic of Georgia of the independence of the aforementioned, the Republic of Atlasia shall:

(a) propose and actively seek the inclusion of the Republic of Georgia into the North Atlantic Treaty Organisation with due haste.

(b) move to advance aid to the Republic of Georgia (from that part of the budget of the Government of Atlasia devoted to foreign aid) in developing its defensive capabilities, in redeveloping its damaged infrastructure, and in such other ways and means as are deemed appropriate and necessary to ensure the safety and security of the Georgian people.

     Based on a suggestion by Xahar. This is his edit of a proposal of mine.

Gubernatorial Amendment

1. The Preamble to Article 1 of the Constitution is amended to replace "Senate" with "Legislature".

2. The Legislature shall be composed of the Senate and the Council of Governors.

3. Each region shall have one vote in the Council, which shall be cast by its head of state.

4. This body shall have the power to veto legislation passed by the Senate, by a majority vote.

5. By a two-thirds vote, the Senate may choose to override a veto of the Council and present legislation directly to the President.

6. In order to maintain activity within the Senate, the Governors shall have the power to appoint a Senator to keep them informed of all bills that pass the Senate.

7. Any other powers of this body may be granted by the Senate, upon request of that power by any Governor.

Azeri Shield Act

1.  The proposed missle defense shield plans for Eastern Europe will hereafter be scrapped.

2.  Instead a shield, previously proposed as a joint project between Russia and America, will be set up in Qalaba, Azerbaijan.

3.  The Azerbaijani radar station will first need to be inspected by American inspectors and defects will need to be repaired or upgraded.  If costs exceed benefits the project may be scrapped at a later date.

4.  All actions will be taken in conjunction with both the Azerbaijani and Russian governments.

________________________________________________________________________________

This is my first real bill and if anyone has any corrections or thinks anything needs to be redone let me know.  The aim is a softening of relations with Russia and if its bad let me know.
