This shows yet another reason why Masterjedi should not be PPT.

I've stickied it even though there's no reason to. The old thread is fine.

Establishment of Opebo Day Act

1. The sixth of October is hereby designated "Opebo Day", a federal holiday.
2. All federal institutions are to be closed on this day.
3. This is in honor of Opebo's infamous "Max Hardcore" quote which was originally issued on that date in the year of 2005.

If this passes, I will proudly be using my powers of regional nullification against this one.

Another piece of practical legislation from Sam Spade:

The "Texasindy" Amendment

Clause 5 of Article V, Section 2 of the Constitution of the Republic of Atlasia is hereby repealed.

Considering that people can no longer delete their accounts (see texasindy), this clause is somewhat useless.

I still maintain (as I have for quite a while yet) that most of Article 5 should be encompassed within statute, not within Constitutional guidelines, though I really doubt there is support for this at present.

I presume this means the earlier bills are withdrawn.  If you could, please modify the original posts on this fact so that I won't accidentally bring them forward.  Thanks.

Also, I want to be co-sponsor of you Withdrawal Amendment to the OSPR, if you are so inclined.  Thanks.

In response to Al's ridiculous bill,a slightly more serious yet not too serious one:

Abolishment of Unions Bill

1. The formation of a workers union for the purpose of collective bargaining or any other workplace improvement is prohibited

This is in conflict with a certain provision of the Constitution (I forget which and don't feel like looking) and would need to be made into an Amendment in order to not be frivolous.

Article VI, Section 10:

Persons in employment shall have the right to organize for the purpose of collective bargaining, with such exceptions as the Senate may provide for by Law on the grounds of vital national interest.

After watching last night's AFL-CIO debate, I have reaffirmed my support to eliminating this clause of the Constitution and would support such legislation, even though it will go nowhere.

So, DWTL, either change the language of this within 24 hours or I'm striking it as frivolous/unconstitutional.

Abolishment of Unions Bill

1. The formation of a workers union for the purpose of collective bargaining or any other workplace improvement is prohibited

The bill is deemed in direct conflict with Article I, Section VI, Clause 10 and is thus removed from the Senate floor as unconstitutional.

Challenges to this ruling may be made per the rules in Article 3, Section 1, Clause 4 of the Senate Rules.

Cymraeg Bill

1. Cymraeg (Welsh) is hereby declared to be the Sole Official Language of Bergen Co., NJ.

2. Take that, boyo!

This bill is struck on the grounds of being frivolous (and unconstitutional).  If you wish to challenge, Al, the procedure for doing so is posted above.

I would like to object to the reintroduction of three defeated bills in slightly different form as being frivolous.

Actually, the number is four.  Tongue

I doubt I will be trying to remove these bills, b/c I am likely to be overruled by 1/3 of the Senate in these four matters - but I will think about it.  Otherwise, there's no other possible justification.

Would the "Illegal is Still Illegal Act" also revoke the citizenship of anyone who has applied for citizenship in the time since going so became legal on May 19? Because the Senate has no rights to revoke citizenship.

That is the reason why I proposed my legislation (I think it's on the previous page), which dealt with that problem (even though I haven't read the Constitution to know for sure).  It was, of course, defeated.

Can't I or someone else just pick up sponsorship?

When I wrote the rule, I specifically wrote it so that legislation which is on the queue moves to the off the list if it hasn't been introduced before resignation.  I have a number of reasons behind this rationale, most assuredly one of these reasons is to entice Senators not to quit before their term is concluded, although it may create some inequitable circumstances such as now.

However, if you wish to reintroduce the legislation, Porce, you may do so, but the legislation will simply start off at the bottom of the queue.
