The Iliamna Volcano Drilling Act

Preamble:

Whereas volcanoes play a critical role in shaping the Earth's geology and provide important insights into Earth's history and geology, and whereas Iliamna Volcano in Alaska contains one of the world's most interesting and potentially accessible magma chambers, and is relatively remote and not located near any major population centers, with no major communities within about 30 miles of the volcano, the following act is proposed to fund research to drill into the magma chamber of Iliamna Volcano.

Section 1: Purpose
1.1 The purpose of this act is to authorize the Atlasian Geological Survey (AGS) to conduct research on the Iliamna Volcano by drilling into its magma chamber.

Section 2: Funding
2.1 An amount of $2 billion is appropriated to fund the research described in this act.
2.2 The funds will be used for the design, construction, and operation of a drilling platform capable of drilling into the magma chamber.

Section 3: Research Plan
3.1 The AGS will be responsible for the planning, preparation, and execution of the research.
3.2 The AGS will develop a detailed research plan, including a timeline, milestones, and contingencies.
3.3 The research plan will be subject to review and approval by the relevant government agencies and scientific experts.
3.4 The research will be conducted in accordance with all relevant laws, regulations, and ethical standards.

Section 4: Reporting Requirements
4.1 The AGS will provide regular reports to the relevant congressional committees on the status of the research.
4.2 The reports will include information on progress, challenges, and any adjustments to the research plan.
4.3 The reports will also include the results of scientific analyses of the data obtained from the research.

Section 5: Sunset Provision
5.1 This act will remain in effect until the research is completed.
5.2 Upon the completion of the research, the AGS will submit a final report to the relevant congressional committees summarizing the results of the research.

Conclusion:
The act described above proposes funding and enabling research to drill into the magma chamber of Iliamna Volcano in Alaska, one of the world's most interesting and potentially accessible magma chambers, which would provide valuable insights into the Earth's geology, history, and volcanic activity. Iliamna Volcano is relatively remote and not located near any major population centers, with no major communities within about 30 miles of the volcano. The relatively shallow depth of the magma chamber, which recent studies suggest may be only 5-6 km below the surface, would also reduce the cost and complexity of drilling. Additionally, there are no extensive hydrothermal systems associated with the volcano, which could make it less risky for drilling or other scientific exploration.

Addendum:

The losing participant in a duel shall automatically be deregistered for a mutually agreed period of at least one week but no more than two months. Upon the conclusion of said period, the losing duelist may re-register at personal whim.
