In order for legislation to be reintroduced, said legislation must not have received public debate time on the Senate floor, or if debate time has been given, must have not come up for a public vote in front of the full Senate.

Atlasian Sexual Health Bill
For the purposes of this statute:

   1. Public Medical Facility means any medical or family planning centre under the direct control of the federal government or a private medical or family planning centre that draws more than one-tenth of its funding from federal funds.
   2. Non-Public Medical Facility means any medical or family planning centre not included in Clause 1.

Therefore,

   2. Any private facility covered under clause one that fails to comply shall have its federal funding reduced to a point where it comprises exactly 10% of the facility's funding.
   3. Any non-Public medical facilities, and private facilities covered under clause one, that provide barrier contraception free of charge to persons may reclaim their costs subject to such rules and regulations as the Atlasian Department of the Treasury shall deem necessary.
   4.  Each person who receives barrier contraception under the terms of this statute will be provided with a leaflet produced by the Atlasian Department of Health and Human Services explaining how to use the contraception, the dangers of Sexually Transmitted Diseases, the potential problems associated with unwanted pregnancies and any other facts that the Department of Health and Human Services deems relevant.
