This appears to have been written by Pyro once upon a time, but I would like to reintroduce the following:

Quote
Senate Resolution
To End Selective Service

Be It Resolved in the Atlasian Senate Assembled, that upon ratification by 2/3rds of the Regions, the Fifth Constitution of Atlasia shall be amended as follows:

Quote from: Article I
(...)

Section 6
Neither slavery, nor involuntary servitude, except as punishment for crimes of which the accused has been duly convicted, shall exist within the Republic of Atlasia, nor in any place under its jurisdiction, nor may any conscription into the armed forces or selective draft or other form of compulsory service be instituted. , unless approved by a public referendum in which at least three-fifths of the votes in each of the three regions are in the affirmative. The President shall have the sole authority to authorize the draft referendum.

(...)

Quote from: Amendment Explanation
This Constitutional Amendment prohibits selective service. Military conscription, or as it more commonly known, "the draft," is the forced enlistment of Atlasian citizens into the armed forces. Legislation had been passed some years ago to eliminate this practice, however integrating this with the First Article of the Constitution shall represent a permanent end to conscription in the Republic and reinforce our commitment to peace.

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.

prefiling this version of the amendment. As this removes the objectionable area regarding Puerto Rico, it should pass. Any conversation regarding Puerto Rico can be addressed in a different bill or amendment.

Senate Resolution
To amend the Constitution to permit the practice of dueling and subsequent effects between mutually consenting Atlasians.

Be It Resolved in the Atlasian Senate Assembled, that upon ratification by 2/3rds of the Regions, the Constitution shall be amended as follows:

Quote
Let There Be Duels Amendment

The following Section is to be incorporated under Article VI of the Fifth Constitution:

Quote
Section 2. Dueling

1. Should there be a mutual agreement, any two Atlasians may engage in a duel.

2. Duels shall take place in a single match of any online game agreed upon by the participants, so long as the game can be fully recorded for independent verification.

3. A replay of the game must be saved and shared with others to confirm the duel happened and who won and who lost.

4. Whoever loses the duel shall be removed as a registered voter and prohibited from re-registering for a period of one week to two months, whichever the duelers mutually decide. Duelists may also agree to different terms provided that the agreement is made in public before the time of the duel. No citizen may be prohibited from re-registering for a period of longer than two months as the result of a duel.

Quote from: Amendment Explanation
This Constitutional Amendment enshrines the right for two Atlasians to mutually agree to a duel between each other. Such duels are to take place under a single match, of which the result shall be independently verified. 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.

Quote
1. The title of this resolution shall be the Senate Vacancy Amendment Act
2. Section 2, article 1 of the constitution of Atlasia shall be amended as follows:
Quote
1. The manner of election for at-large Senators shall be as follows:

    i. The nine at-large Senators shall be elected for a term of two months by the eligible voters of the Republic according to a method of proportional representation prescribed by the Senate. Elections for the seats shall be held in the months of February, April, June, August, October, and December.
    ii. If no other method of proportional representation is prescribed by law, at-large Senate elections shall operate on single transferable vote.
    iii. At-large Senate vacancies shall be filled through appointment by the executive of the former Senator’s Party at the time the vacancy was created; but should a vacancy occur as the result of the death, expulsion, or resignation of an at-large Senator not being a member of a major Party or being a member of a major party lacking an executive and/or party bylaws at the time of the vacancy, then a special election shall be held within twenty days of the vacancy to choose a replacement to serve the remainder of the existing term. Should a Senator indirectly resign via deregistration, and should this deregistration bring the Senator's party at the time of deregistration below the legal limit to be considered a major party, then a special election shall be held by the same standards as if the senator was from a minor party or an independent.
