Whereas, the Midwest has agreed to the transfer of New Mexico from the Pacific to its borders without anything in return;
Whereas, the Pacific unanimously voted against said transfer of New Mexico to the Midwest;
Whereas, the Midwest persists in seeking to obtain New Mexico by aiding rebellious insurgents who are attempting to nullify democratically passed Pacific laws;
Whereas, the Midwest declared its current governor to have been given an unlimited term dependent on specified circumstances in direct and clear violation of the constitution;
The Senate declares its support of the Pacific in addressing the rebel insurgents in New Mexico and its opposition to the Midwest's intimidation tactics.

Amendment to Allow the Senate to Set a Minimum Wage

The Senate shall have power to set a minimum wage, as it deems necessary. It shall be variable in that one shall be set for the Republic of Atlasia (the Five Regions) and others shall be set for the Insular Territories, at an appropriate level deemed by the Senate. The Regions shall also have power to set a minimum wage, within their jurisdictions, but this shall only have effect where this wage is greater than that which has been set by the Senate.

Acceptance of Science Bill

Section 1: Human Sexuality
No funds from the federal government shall go towards any sex education curriculum that promotes any of the following beliefs as based on scientific evidence:
1.) the trait of homosexuality or bisexuality is an entirely conscious choice and/or is strange or unnatural.
2.) the participation in homosexual sex acts is an unnatural act observed only in humans.
3.) the proper use of contraceptive devices including but not limited to condoms is grossly ineffective in preventing pregnancy or sexually transmitted infections.
4.) engaging in sexual activity before marriage with proper precautions is dangerous.
5.) males and females should limit themselves to careers which have historically been associated with masculine and feminine roles, respectively.
6.) the surgical or medical termination of a nonviable pregnancy causes, or is in any way linked to, the development of breast cancer.

Section 2: Origins
No funds from the federal government shall go towards any scientific education curriculum that promotes any of the following beliefs as based on scientific evidence:
1.) the status of biological evolution as a scientific theory is somehow different or set apart from that of other scientific theories such as gravity or relativity.
2.) fossil evidence for biological macroevolution is largely inaccurate or misinterpreted by mainstream scientists, or presents a picture that contradicts with biological evolutionary theory.
3.) radioactive carbon dating is always inaccurate or scientifically unreliable.
4.) the age of the earth is less than ten thousand years.
5.) the origins of the universe and of life on earth are scientifically explained by religious texts or creeds.
6.) the complexity of certain types of life on earth are of such a magnitude that they present valid evidence for that of a higher power or "intelligent designer."
7.) creation theories are testable by the scientific method.
8.) the Second Law of Thermodynamics contradicts the Big Bang.

Section 3: Cannabis
No funds from the federal government shall go towards any drug prevention curriculum that promotes any of the following beliefs as based on scientific evidence:
1.) marijuana use fails to alleviate symptoms associated with terminal illness (e.g. cancer).
2.) recreational use of marijuana invariably leads to use of "hard" drugs (the so-called "gateway effect").
