Fixing Mayotte Resolution

It is hereby the official position of the Republic of Atlasia that Mayotte is a part of the Union of the Comoros and not a part of the Republic of France.

The isle of Mayotte is a remnant of the French colonial past. It is an integral part of the Comoros, and the Republic of Atlasia strongly encourages the French to return Mayotte to the Comoros and for France to additionally apologize to the people of the Comoros. Failure to comply will result in the introduction of economical sanctions versus the Republic of France, and the end of our alliance.

White Roads Inititiave Act

1. This act - which can be referred to as WRIA - mandates that all asphalt roads throughout the Republic of Atlasia be painted white, with road stripes in black.

2. This requirement is set to be implemented by the year 2030 for roads situated within city and town areas, the transition will be prioritized in states such as California, Texas, Florida, the Deep South & Upper South states and the city areas of NYC, Boston, Chicago, Detroit, Milwaukee, Indianapolis, Columbus, Philadelphia, Pittsburgh, Cleveland, Cincinatti, Portland (ME) and Seattle, due to these areas being more affected by summer heat.

3. Rural areas will be granted an extended timeline, with the changes expected to be applied by the year 2043.

4. The rationale behind these changes is to address the issue of urban heat during summer, aiming to create more habitable and sustainable cities. The anticipated outcome is a positive impact on the overall climate change challenge. This is due to the albedo changes that will occur which reduces the amount of heat that'll absorbed by the asphalt roads. This also would reduce airconditioning expenses and needs in some areas.

5. 200 billion Atlasian dollars will be made available for the WRIA, given a period of twenty years time will be set to adjust to the new changes, this will correlate to a 20 billion dollars each year investment in the Atlasian budget plan

ABCMA Amendment Reintroduction Act
Quote
1. SB 113-21, also known as "ABCMA Amendment Act," is hereby restored in its entirety and the treaty is restored to this state

The following amendments will be added to SB 113-21 when re-activated.

2. Any existing player registered in Wales, Gibralter, Northern Ireland, Scotland or England will be auto-moved to the largest populated state in its subregion.

3. This act shall be in no way interpreted to deny someone's voting rights in the republic of Atlasia



Prefiling

Should not cause issues again, since no-one is registered in England, Wales, Northern Ireland & Scotland at the moment and the one user in Gibraltar wants to deregister and will probably do this today or tomorrow. I think with a declining base, it makes no sense to further split the voter base in more states. It's not realistic.

Other than that, the treaty with the UK remains in place. It just removes the registration burden and there'll be no issues since no-one will be registered in any of those states.
