Amendment to Terminate Cyberdyne Act

Quote
TERMINATE CYBERDYNE ACT


Quote
1. Beginning five (5) days from the date this law is enacted, it shall be unlawful for any Atlasian Senator, GM official, or other Atlasian official to utilize any robot, algorithm, or artificial intelligence, including but not limited to ChatGPT, to write more than 25% of any legislation, regulations, executive orders, storylines, or other legally binding content. The PPT will enforce this restriction.

2. The failure of any Senator or other officer to affirmatively declare a bill, regulation, order, story, or other content as having been written or partially written by any robot, algorithm, or artificial intelligence, including but not limited to ChatGPT comply with the preceding section, shall be a crime punishable by a fine of $10,000 and imprisonment for no less than ten (10) days and no more than one (1) year per bill, regulation, order, story, or other content. Lying about whether or not a bill, regulation, order, story, or other content as having been written or partially written by any robot, algorithm, or artificial intelligence, including but not limited to ChatGPT, shall be considered perjury, and shall be punishable by expulsion, a fine of $10,000, and imprisonment for no less than ten (10) days and no more than one (1) year per lie.

3. It is the position of Atlasia that potentially having a robot draft hundreds of bills, regulations, orders, stories, or other content within minutes without any human interaction greatly defeats the point of this game and renders the continuation of Atlasia pointless.

4. The Official Senate Procedures and Rules for Operation shall be amended as follows:
Quote
...

Article 2: Introducing Legislation


...

2.) If the PPT determines that a piece of legislation is functionally impractical, frivolous, was written using the assistance of A.I. such as ChatGPT, or is directly unconstitutional, or is more than 25% composed of content written by A.I. such as ChatGPT they may, in a public post on the Legislation Introduction thread, remove said legislation from the Senate floor. If the reasoning is >25% A.I. Usage, the PPT must present the results of two separate publicly available online content checkers, both of which must support the PPT's finding. The PPT may not use the same checker multiple times in a single determination. The sponsoring Senator of the legislation shall have ninety-six (96) hours to challenge this action in a public post,, and if they are refuting a charge of >25% AI usage, they must present the results of at least one publicly available content checker that refutes the PPT's finding. and With the concurrence of one-third (1/3) of office-holding Senators in the affirmative, the sponsoring senator may override the actions of the PPT. (Nasolation clause)

...

9.) No more than 25% of any legislation shall be written using the assistance of A.I. such as ChatGPT and other language model algorithms. This does not apply to the use of A.I. for sole purposes of grammatical corrections.


Article 3: Amendments

The President Pro Tempore may in good faith remove amendments from consideration that are functionally impractical, frivolous, repetitive, was written using the assistance of A.I. such as ChatGPT, directly unconstitutional, entirely non-germane to the broader subject of the bill, or lack clear intent regarding the changes to be made, or that are more than 25% composed by ChatGPT. If the reasoning is >25% A.I. Usage, the PPT must present the results of two separate publicly available online content checkers, both of which must support the PPT's finding. The PPT may not use the same checker multiple times in a single determination. The amendment sponsor shall have 24 hours to object to the decision by the PPT , and if they are refuting a charge of >25% AI usage, they must present the results of at least one publicly available content checker that refutes the PPT's finding. and The amendment sponsor may overturn the action of the PPT with the concurrence of 1/3rd of his fellow Senators. Unless stated otherwise in the amendment, components of the underlying legislation not referenced in an amendment will remain unchanged.

...

6.) No more than 25% of any amendments shall be written using the assistance of A.I. such as ChatGPT and other language model algorithms. This does not apply to the use of A.I. for sole purposes of grammatical corrections.

...

Article 4: Debate


...

5.) No debate on the Senate floor shall be conducted or written using the assistance of A.I. such as ChatGPT and other language model algorithms.

...

5. Any existing law prohibiting discriminatory conduct against certain classes or groups of persons shall not be interpreted as applying to beings in the following categories:

A. Humans who possess non-medically required artificial enhancements that allow such person to perform tasks exceeding human capabilities;

B. Prohibited human-animal chimeras;

C. Non-human animals; and

D. Artificial intelligence.

6.

Slighlty modified from FT 30.3

Quote
Restorative Justice Enablement Act

The people of the Commonwealth of Fremont do enact as follows:

SECTION 1. Title & Background

1. The title of this legislation is duly hereby established as the Restorative Justice Enablement Act.
Whereas, it is important to recognize that offenders must right their wrongs in a facilitated and congenial process.
2. Whereas, it is the right of the victim to be made aware of subsequent offenses and to establish their future protection.

(a) Restorative justice is a practice and theory rooted in and developed from indigenous practices. When put into practice, restorative justice is a community-based, non-punitive set of processes that center the needs of people who have been harmed. Restorative justice encourages accountability, healing, and repair when harm has occurred. These processes can include facilitated meetings between the person who was harmed, the person who harmed them, family members, and members of the community to discuss the causes and impact of the harm.

(b) Restorative justice processes often result in deep understanding of the harm caused, meaningful expressions of accountability, and agreements to take specific actions to repair harm, including personal or community service, engagement in employment or counseling, and payment of restitution. Restorative justice processes also provide an opportunity for victim or survivors to ask questions, share about the impact of harm, and engage in dialogue in ways that are not possible within the traditional criminal legal system.

(c) In 2015, a peer-reviewed study in the Journal of Experimental Criminology found that restorative justice processes can result in reduced feelings of fear, anger, post-traumatic stress symptoms, and depression for people who have been harmed. Researchers, including Dr. Mark Umbreit, studying the impact of restorative justice conferencing across different countries found that restorative justice processes result in higher rates of satisfaction for people who have been harmed than current criminal legal systems. In 2015, a study of Community Works West's restorative justice youth diversion program in the County of Alameda showed that restorative justice processes also reduce future acts of harm and violence and have been used with documented success in counties throughout the state.

(d) Restorative justice offers the opportunity to better meet the needs that arise when harm has been caused than the traditional criminal legal system.

(e) It is the intent of the Legislature to establish a victim's right to be informed of the availability and benefits of restorative justice programs.

SEC. 2.

The following rights are hereby established as the statutory rights of victims and witnesses of crimes:

(1) To be notified as soon as feasible that a court proceeding to which the victim or witness has been subpoenaed as a witness will not proceed as scheduled, provided the prosecuting attorney determines that the witness' attendance is not required.
(2) Upon request of the victim or a witness, to be informed by the prosecuting attorney of the final disposition of the case
(3) For the victim, the victim's parents or guardian if the victim is a minor, or the next of kin of the victim if the victim has died, to be notified of all sentencing proceedings, and of the right to appear, to reasonably express their views, have those views preserved by audio or video means.
(4) For the victim, the victim's parents or guardian if the victim is a minor, or the next of kin of the victim if the victim has died, to be notified of all juvenile disposition hearings in which the alleged act would have been a felony if committed by an adult, and of the right to attend and to express their views.
(5) Upon request by the victim or the next of kin of the victim if the victim has died, to be notified of any parole eligibility hearing and of the right to appear personally.
(6) Upon request by the victim or the next of kin of the victim if the crime was a homicide, to be notified of an inmate's placement in a reentry or work furlough program, or notified of the inmate's escape.
(7) For the victim, to be provided with information concerning the victim's right to civil recovery and the opportunity to be compensated restitution.
( 8 ) To the expeditious return of property that has allegedly been stolen or embezzled, when it is no longer needed as evidence
(9) To an expeditious disposition of the criminal action.
(10) To be notified, if applicable, if the defendant is to be placed on parole.
(11) For the victim, upon request, to be notified of any pretrial disposition of the case
(12) For the victim, to be notified by the offender's following subsequent offenses:
(A) Assault with intent to commit rape, sodomy, oral copulation
(13) When a victim has requested notification, the sheriff shall inform the victim that the person who was convicted of the offense has been ordered to be placed on probation, and give the victim notice of the proposed date upon which the person will be released from the custody of the sheriff.
(a) For the victim, to be notified of the availability of community-based restorative justice programs and processes available to them, including, but not limited to, programs serving their community, county, county jails, juvenile detention facilities, and the Department of Corrections and Rehabilitation. The victim has a right to be notified as early and often as possible, including during the initial contact, during followup investigation, at the point of diversion, throughout the process of the case, and in post-conviction proceedings.

(b) Local law enforcement agencies shall make available copies of the materials described in subdivision (b) to victims and witnesses.

Persuant to Senate Rule, Article I, Section 4, I initiate a Motion of No Confidence against acting PPT LouisvilleThunder for the following reasons:

Quote
1. For improper conduct as Deputy PPT. During SB-117-18: Stop the Harassment Act, LouisvilleThunder acting contrary to the Senate rules, attempted to illegally count an amendment vote that was at least 9 hours late to influence the result to his desired outcome (turning a defeat of the amendment into a tie). As Deputy PPT he had to be overruled, and cannot be trusted to act as an impartial PPT.

2. For displaying partisan hubris unbecoming of a PPT.

3. For not resigning his position as acting PPT in order to restore Wulfric to the positon of PPT, when Wulfric only lost the position and he only gained it due to two seperate technicalities.

Should this motion be successful, I intend to nominate Wulfric as PPT.

This post will act as the official cutoff for new legislation in the current session. Any bills posted will be deferred to the next session. The Senate will remain in session for the time being to continue processing the bills still on the floor.

prefiling because i have an idea

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

If the number rounded down is a decimal (for example if 57 people voted and 5.7 people need to sign on, then that number is rounded to the closest .5; if the result was a .5, it will be rounded up). While one must be a registered voter to start or sign a petition, they did not have to vote in the previous election to sign on.
B. The Secretary of State will review all signatures once the threshold has matched and will arrange a date with the Secretary of Elections no less than (1) week prior to the next scheduled federal election to hold a referendum.
C. Any repeal which passes by a simple majority will be deemed voided and will no longer take  effect.
D. Any law that matches the signatures within the 1 week threshold will be postponed until a date after the next presidential election.

Section 3: Implementation
A. This bill will take place effective immediately, although no law passed prior to the passing of this bill will be eligible for a petition.

The People Deserve Better Act

Section 1. This bill will be cited as The People Deserve Better Act

Section 2: The Recall Process:

A. Any elected official  may be recalled from office if a number matching 10% of eligible voters from the previous election sign onto a petition. The reasoning for the recall is identical to the current process for expelling a member of the senate or impeaching a president, and cannot be done for simply disliking the elected official. If the number rounded down is a decimal (for example if 57 people voted and 5.7 people need to sign on, then that number is rounded to the closest .5; if the result was a .5, it will be rounded up). While one must be a registered voter to start or sign a petition, they did not have to vote in the previous election to sign on.
B. The Secretary of State will review the validity of the signatures and will arrange a date with the Secretary of Elections no less than (1) week prior to the next scheduled federal election to hold a referendum.
C. Any petition that matches the signatures within the 1 week threshold will be postponed until a date after the next federal election. If the elected official is no longer in office after the federal election, the petition will be voided as irrelevant.

Section 3: The Effects of the Recall:

A. A politician can be recalled with a simple majority. Any politician that was recalled cannot serve in that capacity for the remainder of the session.
B. Any non-recalled candidate may run in a special election that takes place no less than (2) week prior to the next federal election.
C. The President has the authority to appoint a placeholder candidate if the recall election takes place more than (2) weeks before the next election cycle. The placeholder candidate may choose whether to run in the special election. If the recall takes place within 2 weeks of the next scheduled election, then the seat shall remain vacant for the remainder of the term.

Allowing for Lifetime Bans:

A. No recalled politician shall be banned from running in future elections unless a separate petition is filed with a valid reason that is reviewed by the Attorney General. The time of the ban will be determined by the offense, although lifetime bans will be reserved for those who are found guilty of insurrection, attempted insurrection, or treason.
B. The Attorney General will review the reasoning behind the proposed ban and will be at the discretion on whether or not the reasoning behind the ban is valid. If the Attorney General determined that the politician has violated the Constitution and/or grossly abused/misused its duties, the ban can move forward. The ban requires a supermajority (at least 66% of the vote) for it to become effective.

Section 4: Implementation
A. This bill will take place effective immediately.

3) The United Kingdom issue an official apology for committing ethnic cleansing against the Chagossians and for engaging in continued colonialism
