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.

I ask that this be placed on the docket.

To my knowledge this is not in the national law code as of yet.  Just like the mixed parentage act it is something I introduced as mideast governor.

Mental Law Gun Ban
Whereas: The massacre at Virginia Tech was done by a man that was Mentally Unstable.
Whereas: Because he went to see someone to analyze him at his school/hospital and it was ruled he wasn't a threat this didn't go on his record. The girls he stalked also did not press charges. He was however Mentally Unstable (suicidal).

Therefore: This legislation will require any offense or ruling related to or dealing with the mental health of a person be included on that person's criminal back ground for the mentally ill and for the mentally unstable for a period of 5 years.

Therefore: Preventing anyone who is deemed mentally ill / mentally unstable by either a court or a psychiatrist from attaining firearms, regardless of state laws currently in place regarding this issue.

In an attempt to curtail further attacks this bill will ONLY prevent the mentally ill (temporary for mentally unstable) from purchasing firearms of any caliber for any use by requiring that mental health rulings and clinical evaluations be included on the background check

Vice Presidential Election Amendment

Elections to the Presidency and Vice Presidency shall be held in separate contests. Vice Presidential Elections shall be held on the same date as Presidential Elections.



Much to my surprise, there isn't any additional language in the Constitution or CESRA that needs to be explicitly repealed to make this work. All the current ticket system is based on is "He shall be elected with a Vice President(...)" in Article II Section 1 Clause 1 and the Candidate Regulations (an executive order. And one that has rarely been obeyed to the letter anyways.) The Constitution also says "The Senate shall have necessary power to determine regulations for the procedure of and the form of Presidential elections", so whether this even requires an amendment is open to debate. Better to play it safe, though.

Secret Ballot Amendment

Article I, Section 4, Clause 6 of the Constitution shall be amended by striking the words:
"All elections to the Senate shall be by public post."

Article II, Section 1, Clause 2 of the Constitution shall be amended by striking the words:
"All elections to the Presidency shall be by public post."



Secret Ballot Bill

1. For all elections administered by the Department of Forum Affairs, there shall be the option for all eligible voters to cast their vote by personal message to the Secretary of Forum Affairs (hereinafter 'SoFA').

2. Following the end of the official polling period and prior to the certification of results, the SoFA shall quote all votes cast by personal message and publish them for review by the public.

3. The SoFA shall be prohibited from publicly disclosing any information relating to any ballots he may or may not have received with any third party, until after the official polling period has ended. Breach of this rule may result in the loss of office for the SoFA and the voiding of the election at issue.

4. All references to the Secretary of Forum Affairs shall be taken also to encompass any official who may be deemed to be officiating at an election within the remit of the Department of Forum Affairs.

I'd like the tariff to be raised higher, but I suppose that works.

     For future reference, this thread is for commenting on legislation. Also, I made it 5% to try to preserve the current effect, just without the social engineering factor.
