Constitutional Convention Proposal Vote:

Seciton A. This bill will be known as the Constitutional Convention Proposal Vote

Section B. What's being voted on.
1. Whether or not direct democracy should be applied on the federal level.
An "Aye on 1" vote will signal an approval to move forward.
A "Nay on 1" vote will signal disapproval.

2. On the Nationalization of essential services defined as "healthcare, transportation, and energy".
An "Aye on 2" vote will signal an approval to move forward
A "Nay on 2" vote will signal disapproval

Section C. Implementation:
Following a 2/3rds vote in the senate, each issue will be brought to be voted during the next federal election. A majority vote is required for the implementation of a Constitutional Convention where these issues can be debated upon and decided on further. Because each issue is being voted on separately, one of them failing will not impact the other if it passes.

Amendment to the Senate Rules
Article 2: Introducing Legislation

1.) The President of the Senate shall keep a thread on the Fantasy Government board for introducing legislation. This thread shall be known as the Senate Legislation Introduction Thread. Sitting Senators may post in this thread. The President Pro Tempore shall maintain a record listing all sponsored legislation in the Legislation Introduction Thread.
2.) If the PPT determines that a piece of legislation is functionally impractical, frivolous, or is directly unconstitutional, they may, in a public post on the Legislation Introduction thread, remove said legislation from the Senate floor. The sponsoring Senator of the legislation shall have ninety-six (96) hours to challenge this action in a public post, and with the concurrence of one-third (1/3) of office-holding Senators in the affirmative, may override the actions of the PPT. (Nasolation clause)
3.) 2511 threads about legislation may be open for voting and debate simultaneously.
a.) The first 207 open threads shall be open to all legislation initially regarding bills, resolutions or constitutional amendments. If the sponsor already has two or more pieces of legislation on the Senate floor, legislation from Senators who do not shall take priority until all such other legislation is completed. The PPT shall be the Presiding Officer for these open threads.
b.) The twenty-firsteighth slot shall be reserved for national emergencies and administered by either the President of the Senate or the PPT.
c.) The twenty-secondninth slot shall be reserved for budgetary legislation and administered by either the President of the Senate or the PPT.
d.) The twenty-third and twenty-fourth slotstenth slot shall be reserved for the President of the Republic of Atlasia and administered by either the President of the Senate or the PPT.
e.) The twenty-fiftheleventh slot shall be reserved for public submissions and shall be introduced by the President of the Senate.
4.) A legislation is no longer on the Senate Floor when it has been tabled, rejected, or passed by the members of the Senate.
5.) If at any time the original sponsor vacates his office as Senator, all legislation introduced in the Legislation Introduction Thread shall, within a week of the vacancy, be declared withdrawn by the PPT by public post, if no Senator sponsors the legislation. If a piece of legislation has been introduced on the Senate floor, any office-holding Senator may assume sponsorship.
6.) Co-sponsors of legislation under consideration shall have no power to withdraw legislation nor contest withdrawal of legislation by the original sponsor. Any office-holding Senator may assume sponsorship of the legislation within 96 hours after the original sponsor has motioned to withdraw. Once a motion to assume sponsorship has been filed by a Senator, Senators shall have 24 hours to object to this motion. If any Senator objects, the PPT shall open a vote on the motion lasting until a majority has voted for or against the motion, but not more than 96 hours. If the motion is rejected, the bill shall be removed from the floor.
7.) All resolutions seeking to amend the constitution must be introduced along with a passage detailing what is being changed in the Constitution and why, called the Amendment Explanation. All amendments to the resolution, must change the explanation if they change the resolution so as to be inconsistent with it. This shall not infringe on the presiding officer's ability to correct for grammar and formatting issues, nor impede the presiding officer's ability to update and maintain a mission statement in the outer quote box of a given bill or resolution.
8.) All legislation on the Senate floor shall be given a distinct designation. The format of this designation shall denote in the following order "S" for the Senate chamber, followed by "B" for a bill or "R" for a Resolution. Immediately following the second letter will be number of the present senate at the time of introduction, followed by a dash if administered by the President of the Senate, and then a number displaying at least two digits beginning with "01" and increasing until the end of the session.


I find this to be functionally impractical at this time given the large agenda currently before the Senate.

This ruling might be revisited later.

Introducing with priority:

Capital Referendum Act

- Recognizing the large number of voters in the Capital naming referendum who voted for "None of the Above", voted for a choice that failed to become a finalist, or wrote comments on their ballot decrying the Capital relocation process
- Recognizing the presence of a public campaign against the moving of the Capital: https://talkelections.org/FORUM/index.php?topic=569688.0
- Desiring to have the final outcome regarding our capital accepted by the people

The Atlasian Senate hereby authorizes the following referendum to be placed on the December 2023 Federal Ballot:

"Shall the implementation of SB 117-41, to move the Atlasian Capital, continue?"

With the following options:

- NAY, which would constitute a repeal of SB 117-41 in full
- AYE but re-select the name, under which the naming process would be repeated, under the same process as before except 10 finalists will be selected.

[The name currently selected by the previous referendum would remain the legal name until the new naming process is complete. No finalist from such referendum would have automatic inclusion in the new process, all names would need to be (re-)suggested and (re-)selected.]

- AYE and keep the previously selected name in place.

I move to designate this under a presidential slot.

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.
