Quote from: Fair Juror Pay Act:

1. This act amends the Judicial Improvement Act of 1990. Jurors will be paid a per diem fee for actual attendance equivalent to the Federal minimum wage for each hour of attendance.

2. Should a trial exceed 10 days, the attendance fee may be increased by up to $5 an hour at the discretion of the presiding judge.

3. This act will go into effect immediately upon the President's signature.

The Earth-friendly Packaging Act

1. In order to lead the way to a cleaner and healthier future for all life in our nation, and to demonstrate the use of more environmentally sustainable alternatives, the Federal Government of Atlasia commits to phase out its use of polystyrene foam packaging materials by one year from the passage of this act.  These materials will be replaced by materials which do not create debris ingestible by wildlife and which are not otherwise harmful to waterways or to the health of animals or humans.

2. Departments may reuse polystyrene foam for internal or interdepartmental use but will not purchase new polystyrene materials.  Departments will make efforts to provide for recycling of polystyrene and other plastics.

3. Food services which operate in federal buildings, or in national parks or other federal designated protected areas, shall not use polystyrene foam in consumer food packaging.  Additionally, a goal shall be set of using 95% recyclable or reusable and 75% biodegradable packaging by one year from the passage of this act.

4. This act shall not prohibit the use of polystyrene foam in architectural or medical applications, or applications determined of unavoidable necessity, or the acquiring of polystyrene foam for these purposes; however, the development and use of more environmentally friendly materials will be strongly encouraged in all applications wherever possible.

I feel compelled to say that this act does not have the sanction of the State Department, and that I will be forced to oppose it should it come to the floor.

Atlasian Electoral Primary System Act:

1. This bill will be used to encourage competitive primaries in Presidential Elections, this will include dates for which each region will vote BEFORE the national party convention.

2. Each region shall have a primary or caucus, each determined by the voters of each region.

3. The primaries can be open or not, it will be determined by the voters of each region.

4. The primary system will have ALL declared candidates for the presidency on that party's ticket.

5. The caucus system shall narrow down candidates who have no chance to win that caucus. (For example: 3 Candidates are running in the Fremont primary. 1 candidate only has a few votes, he is eliminated. Then it narrows down to a caucus runoff. If the runoff miracally produces a tie, the delegate totals will be split in half.

6. The delegate threshold required to be nominated shall be 50% of all delegates, if no candidate gets to that number, there will be a brokered convention.

7. Each region's number of delegates will be determined by the number of registered voters in each region. (For example if there are 60 registered North voters, there will be 60 North delegates. If a candidate wins a primary with 66% of the vote, they will get 40 delegates. The same goes for caucuses.)

Isn't the whole point of our electoral system here in Atlasia to be... effective?

I mean, sabotaging the Administration's foreign policy is an interesting choice, but okay.

Just as a friendly reminder, the next House session does not begin until Friday, September 2nd. Also, Clyde, a bill on physician-assisted suicide has already passed in the House and is currently being debated in the Senate. NeverAgain is the sponsor.

Thanks for the heads up. I've removed the assisted suicide bill and I'll leave the other bill there for the time being before the start of the term. Smiley
