The Ensuring Cancer Pay Act:

1. Any worker unable to go to work or preform work functions due to seeking cancer treatment, etc. shall receive the same amount of pay the worker would get as if they were working.
2. Any worker cannot fired simply because they are seeking treatment for cancer.
3. This law shall take effect immediately.

I have a question to Sen. Pericles about the intent of this bill before I make a decision on introducing it to the floor.

I am still trying to determine whether or not this law is functionally frivolous in that it appears to basically just be the Davis Bacon Act which is already federal law. Davis Bacon requires recipients of all federal contracts above $2,000.00 to pay workers the "prevailing wage" of the area where the contract is being completed. For all practical purposes, the prevailing wage of an area is always higher than the minimum wage. If the Sponsor believes 15% above the minimum wage is equivalent to the "prevailing wage" then this bill is unnecessary. According to this source Prevailing wage is closer to 25% higher than the minimum wage, although its just 1 source. If the sponsor considers the proposed bill an attempt to water down Davis Bacon and cap prevailing wage at a flat 15% over the minimum wage even if the current prevailing wage is higher in an area, that would be a substantial change to the law and I will list it.

So my question is, is this intended to be Davis Bacon? If so, Davis Bacon is already law, but if not I will list your bill. I'm just trying to avoid repassing something thats already law.

Under the Supreme Court decision in Roe v. ZuWo (2015), the Senate has no authority to legislate on this matter:

We therefore choose to uphold the precedent, which remains today, as it has in years prior, the only fair and reasonable reading of the text of the Constitution. The Senate has no authority to legislate on abortion.

Under Art. 2-2 of the Senate Rules, I am respectfully denying this bill a slot on the Senate floor., as it is unconstitutional.

No I don't intend to gut Davis-Bacon. Thanks for the information and I don't support keeping those provisions in the bill. I don't know if 2.3 is valid-if so I'll get rid of 2.1 and 2.2 and keep that in, if not then I'd accept scrapping the bill as functionally frivolous. Tbh I wasn't sure what the law is regarding abortion in Atlasia, and it's good to have that information now.

I think hours works. I'll post it momentarily.

I motion to introduce SB 2018-246(also known as the HELIOS Act), unamended, to the Senate-and to override the President's veto of this legislation.
