Sec 5, Clause 3 should include Italian.  And/or a suggestion that other languages may be offered and counted towards the required total of two.

Italian is neither a significant international language of commerce nor spoken in multiple countries. Euro-centrism in language teaching should be avoided.

^^^

Teaching Chinese, Japanese, and Hindi are very good idea judging by the development of Asia currently.

On behalf of Peter

Moderator Role and Status Bill
Section 1: Findings
1. The role of Moderators with respect to the Atlasian legal system is not presently addressed at all in Atlasian Law
2. The recent Walterstein case has raised specific issues surrounding IP checks and warrants.
3. The Senate recognises it should not and cannot restrict the actions of moderators with respect to their role as agents of Dave Leip.
4. Article VI, Section 8 states: The right of the people to be secure in their persons, houses, papers, communications and effects, against unreasonable searches and seizures, shall not be violated, and no warrants shall issue, but upon probable cause, supported by oath or affirmation, and particularly describing the place to be searched, and the persons or things to be seized.

Section 2: Immunity
Moderators shall not be answerable in Atlasian Courts for actions consistent with directions and tasks given to them by Dave Leip.

Section 3: Warrants
1. Should the Attorney General wish to ask a moderator to investigate the IP of a particular poster or several posters, then he shall apply to the Supreme Court for a search warrant, stating his reasons for suspecting the poster(s).
2. The Court may decline or issue the search warrant with such conditions as it feels necessary.
3. If a warrant is issued, the Attorney General may approach a moderator or Dave Leip to perform the search. The moderator/Dave Leip are under no obligation to perfrom the check if they feel it is not appropriate.
4. Any information supplied by the moderator/Dave Leip is considered to be privileged information unless they specifically allow it to be released to the public domain.

Section 4: Retroactive Warrants
Should a moderator/Dave Leip in the performance of their other duties come to the realisation that Atlasian Law has been broken and then inform the Attorney General of this fact, then the Attorney General may apply for a retroactive warrant for an IP investigation from the Court.

Immigration Reform Bill:

1. All illegal immigrants who wish to become residences of this country will be able to do so in an easy process. The immigrants shall notify the Atlasian government at least four months before coming into the country. The atlasian government will look at the person's background, including criminal record and other records. The government will send a notification back to the upcoming immigrant saying if he has been accepted or turned down by the government to come into the country.

2. Two months before coming into the country, the upcoming immigrant will send forms to the Atlasian government to both apply for a drivers license and for health care. Once the upcoming immigrant is given the health care and drivers license for Atlasia, then he must wait two more months before coming into the country.

3. After the two month period, the immigrant will be allowed into the country. The immigrant must report to the state government within thirty days for notification that the immigrant is now a citizen of Atlasia.

This bill, if passed,  will make the immigration system better. It will allow the immigrant to come into the country already having health care, a drivers license, and admission to become an Atlasian citizen.

lol. Is that a joke?
