AN ACT
To deliver freedom for the people of Lincoln.



Be it enacted by the Senate of the Republic of Atlasia assembled

Section 1. Title

1. This act may be cited as the Lincoln Freedom Act


Section 2. Definitions

I. Immediately upon enactment, the Fifth Constitution of Atlasia shall be suspended until further notice.

II. Upon enactment of this bill, the Lincoln General Court is disbanded.

III. Effective immediately, the region of Lincoln is dissolved and reorganized into the Peopleís Republic of Lincoln, which shall be recognized as an independent nation by the Republic of Atlasia.

IV. Upon the establishment of the Peopleís Republic of Lincoln, the suspension of the Constitution shall be terminated.

Section 3. Sense of the Senate


I. It is the sense of the Senate of the Republic of Atlasia that we, as a body, fully and unequivocally endorse the aims and provisions of LGC 3.3

II. It is the sense of the Senate of the Republic of Atlasia that we, as a body, fully and unequivocally endorse the aims and provisions of LGC 3.4

I am invoking Article 2, Section 2 for this as well. This can be challenged within 96 hours if one-third of the Senate (six senators) vote to bring it to the floor, but otherwise I will not bring any legislation to the floor that dissolves the union or the game itself.

I challenge the ruling of the PPT, and motion for a vote.

Since two senators, a member of our National Security Council, and our Attorney General have expressed valid objections to the bill proposed by Senator Spark, I'm invoking ArtII.S2.

This doesn't solve anything and I wish people would just calm the hell down and move on from this dumb episode.

Hubert H. Humphrey Helping Hand to the Homeless Act

An act in the CONGRESS of the REPUBLIC of ATLASIA

Section 1. Purpose and Background

a. WHEREAS, Runaway and homeless youth flee conflict, abuse, neglect, or, increasingly, poverty in their homes. They have become disconnected from educational systems and the workforce and do not have the skills and financial resources to live on their own. The factors impacting youth homelessness are complex and differ from those impacting other homeless populations;

b. WHEREAS, Runaway and homeless youth who live on the street are victims of physical abuse, sexual exploitation, human trafficking, and crime in untold numbers. An estimated 300,000 youth are either victims or at risk of becoming victims of commercial and sexual exploitation each year, of which 60 percent of these victimized children are homeless; and

c. WHEREAS, Homeless youth tend to have started using drugs at a younger age, often before 15 years of age. Early drug use and abuse are predictive of serious adult addiction problems and long-term homelessness;

d. WHEREAS, Youth who "age out" of the foster care system are at an increased risk of homelessness, and represent an estimated 20 percent of the 20,000 youth who leave foster care and are currently homeless; and
