A BILL
To rescue the Atlasian economy

Be it enacted in both houses of Congress assembled,
Quote
Section 1. Title
1. This legislation may be cited as the Third Emergency Economic Stimulus Act.

Section 2. Extension of Expiring Stimulus Measures
1. The universal income established under Section 2 of the Emergency Economic Stimulus Act of 2020 shall be extended from April 1, 2021 until October 1, 2021 pursuant to subsection 4.
2. From October 1, 2021, the universal income shall decrease by 25% on the first day of each month until it is eliminated.
3. A congressional vote shall begin 14 days before October 1, 2021 in both houses of Congress for Congress to decide whether or not to extend the universal income.
a) The vote shall be a simple 'Aye' or 'Nay' on the extension. If Aye receives a majority in both houses of Congress then Congress shall be able to decide on the length of the extension. The default shall be for the universal income to continue in full until January 1, 2022, in the event of an Aye vote-unless Congress legislates for an alternative end date.
4. Section 5 of the Emergency Economic Stimulus Act of 2020 shall be amended as follows:
Quote
1a. Citizens, permanent residents and households in the Republic of Atlasia who do not have a source of income above the federal minimum wage between April 1, 2020 and October 1, 2020 April 1, 2021 October 1, 2021; may not be evicted from their house, nor their supply of water, electricity or internet cut off; for not paying the appropriate bills.
1b. Between October 2nd, 2020 and January 31st, 2021 April 2, 2021 and July 31, 2021 October 2nd, 2021 and January 31st, 2022; utilities may be cut for not paying their appropriate bills, but no tenants shall be evicted from their house for not paying the appropriate mortgage or rent bills.
1c. After January 31st, 2021 July 31, 2021 January 31st, 2022; companies and tenants may rise the appropriate bills by no more than 10% in order to recover the unpaid dues.
2. The earning of unemployment benefits between April 1st, 2020 and October 1st, 2020 April 1st, 2021 October 1st, 2021 shall not affect in any way the collection of future unemployment benefits.
3. The payments discussed in Sections 2.1 and 2.2 shall not be counted towards the federal minimum wage accounting discussed in Section 4.1.

Grave apologies for the delay! Medical issues are no fun.

We forgot about this bill an extension of the COVID stimulus was passed last October lasting up until April 1, a deadline we have obviously missed by now, as we did the last time an extension was debated. That deadline notwithstanding, I think there is some debate to be had regarding exactly how long this is to be extended, since it is not inconceivable that the pandemic's effects will be wearing off by this October.

No debate? None? Bueller? Bueller?

I am a little unsure of how to proceed with debate; assuming we hold a vote on the extension first, as prescribed in the bill itself, we should theoretically be entitled to debate the length of the extension but I have no idea whether congressional rules permit going back to a bill after it does so.

I think it's a good idea to get this passed as quick as possible.

The Eviction ban really should have ended especially with the monthly income.

Sorry to pop in late, but does this extend the UBI program to October?

If the pandemic in Atlasia is over by July, then we can use July rather than October as the starting point to start winding up the UBI. It has been a necessary stimulus measure for the last year but a permanent UBI is not a good idea and we should be more cautious with deficit-spending once the recessionary period is over.

Debate after the final vote begins? Say it ain't so!

This will have to be yet another mess for the Senate to clear up, I'm afraid. Sorry for that. Aye for now but I certainly hope to be able to vote more enthusiastically on a better bill sometime in the future.
