I demand that the Articles of Impeachment that have been introduced against both Vice President Nix and Attorney General Al be removed from the Senate queue. These are frivolous pieces of legislation with no real merit.

It is the constitutional right of the actual Senators to offer these resolutions.

Last I checked, I was an actual Senator, not a disgraced failure currently indicted for treason.

You are not an actual Senator, unless you resign your tenure as Governor and win election or appointment by your successor to a vacant senate seat.

Well, technically, you're not a governor or senator, nor am I an a legislative election.

But it is a fact that DKrol is the game moderator in Atlasia, and it is a fact, unfortunately, that you're a governor in Atlasia (although you might have technically revoked that with your revolution) but it's not a fact that you're a senator in Atlasia, nor is it one that Yankee is a "disgraced failure"--the charges brought against him are the most politically-motivated stuff I've ever seen.

Now, this thread has been derailed. It's for official legislation introduction. I simply wanted to point out that Mr. TNF's existentialism is silly.

Emergency War Powers Resolution

1.) Article I, Section 5, Clause 23 declares the Senate has the power  'To provide for calling forth the militia to execute the laws of the union, suppress insurrections and repel invasions'' along with clause 21 which states the Senate has the power  'To provide for the common defense of the Republic of Atlasia.'' The authority for this bill comes from these powers.

2.) This resolution hereby announces that the Senate of Atlasia has lost faith in the actions of the Federal Government and President Bore over it's lack of leadership over the invasion of the Pacific. The Senate condemns the violent actions of TNF's unlawful government, and demands that all his forces surrender, and he turns himself in for arrest.

3.) The Senate of Atlasia hereby declares war on TNF's secessionist attempts in the Midwest, and declares him an enemy of the State

4.) As said above, the Senate hereby raised the militia's, troops and assorted armed forces of the Nation of Atlasia. These troops are hereby commanded to protect the laws, lands and people  of Atlasia, and to protect the 4 regions of Atlasia against any aggression.

4b.) $1 Billion in emergency aid is hereby sanctioned for the militia's and troops of Atlasia to defend the laws of the law, and were necessary carry out offensive actions against TNF's unlawful government.

4c.) These militia's will be placed under the command of the Army of Atlasia who shall coordinate the defense of the Nation.

5.) The institutions and authorities of Atlasia are hereby put on war footing, and are in a state of emergency.  Public procedures and information prepared for a war situations shall be disrupted.

With great regret, the Senate of Atlasia hereby announces that we are at war.

I object to this bill coming to the floor as well, as it is a blatant slander upon myself.

2015 Amnesty Resolution

The Senate of the Republic of Atlasia, wishing to contribute to the process of achieving a national recociliation, and to help healing the woulds that are still scaring this great Union of ours, is respectfully asking the President to use his constitutional powers and:
1. Commute sentences imposed upon those convicted for their action during the Atlasian Civil War of 2014 to time served.
2. Grant preemptively a full pardon for all crimes that might have been committed during the Pacific Crisis.

In the light of a recent rebelion, Snowstalker's banning, Turkisblau's deregistration and Ebowed being pardonj by Simfan (with the status of his federal prosecution being unclear), I'd like to wirthdraw this resolution.

Justice System Reform Bill 1 2015

1.   From 1 January 2016 all Federal prisons, or any other institution of criminal detention, currently being managed, owned or operated by a private company, on behalf of the Federal Government, will be returned to the full control of the Federal Government.
2.   All contracts that are due for renewal before 1 January 2016 will be renewed, however, only until 31 December 2015 with clauses to indicate that this will be a transitory contract and the Federal Department of Internal Affairs and the Justice Department will assume an over-sight role until full responsibility is returned.
3.   For those organisations whose existing contracts extend beyond 1 January 2016, they shall be paid out the remainder of their contract, or, whatever the Federal Government is required to do under individual funding agreements.
4.   Operational personnel currently engaged by private organisations will be employed, if they so wish, by the Federal Government. However, all management positions will be opened to a full application process, as is required by the Federal Government and individuals placed on their merit.
5.   A minimum appropriation for this Bill will be $650 million in this calendar year. The Senate may increase that appropriation at any time.
6.   An additional appropriation of xxxx will be placed into the Federal Budget as an ongoing cost for the management of Federal institutions covered under this Bill.

Um... what happened to this?

I hereby manifest my intention to call a Constitutional Convention to amend the current Constitution.



There isn't need for a resolution. When at least other 5 Senators will have seconded this, I'll open a thread in which we'll discuss and determine the rules for a Constitutional Convention.

It's no longer necessary, considered that the petition reached enough signatures.

I'm withdrawing the motion.

Resolution for Peaceful Coexistence

In order of establishing and maintaining a peaceful coexistence between the two games on the Atlas Forum, the Republic of Atlasia hereby pledges never to subvert on in any other way disrupt the Mock Parliament, as well as to prevent any our our citizens from engaging into such acts.

This resolution is fully binding.

I call for this being treated as emergency legislation, so we can show our friends in the other game there is no reason to be suspicious or hostile toward us

Not a fan of this overly legalistic setup, but I motion for the expulsion of Cassius and New Canadaland from the Senate for missing over two weeks without any indication as to why.

Senate rules:

Quote
Article VII: Expulsion of a Sitting Senator
Section 1: Introduction of an Article of Expulsion
Expulsion proceedings shall be initiated if:
1) The Senator has not posted anything on the Atlas Fantasy Government board for 168 consecutive hours and hasn't posted a valid Leave of Absence
(then the time covered by that LOA shall not count toward those 168 hours, but periods of inactivity before and after the LOA shall count as a continuous period, provided there are no interceding posts. In order to be valid, a Leave of Absence shall not be longer than 368 hours). And an article of expulsion has been introduced in the Legislative Introduction Thread.
2) 5 Senators have sponsored an article of expulsion, introduced in the Legislative Introduction Thread, against one of their Senate colleagues


Section 2: Rules
1) The President of the Senate shall open a thread and commence the debates. The President of the Senate shall not be able to take part into the debates.
2) The Senator concerned by the article of expulsion shall be informed by private message and may hire an attorney for organising his/her defense.
3) Debates shall last at least for 72 hours. After the debates have elapsed, the President of the Senate shall open a vote, which shall last for 3 days. In order to expel the Senator, two-thirds of the current senators shall vote AYE.
4) If the acting President of the Senate is the Senator concerned by the article of expulsion, the most senior Senator, who is not the Senator concerned by the article of expulsion, shall administer the expulsion process.
5) If a Senator administers the expulsion process, he/she shall not be able to take part into the debates and shall not be able to vote, unless his vote matters and only after the 72 hours of voting have elapsed.

So I assume there isn't need for 5 other Senators to second it...
