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, algorithim, or artificial intelligence, including but not limited to ChatGPT, to write any legislation, regulations, executive orders, storylines, or other legally binding content.

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, algorithim, or artificial intelligence, including but not limited to ChatGPT, 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, algorithim, 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
...

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, 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)

...

9.) No legislation shall be written using the assistance of A.I. such as ChatGPT and other language model algorithims.


Article 3: Amendments

1.) During the course of debate on legislation, any sitting Senator may offer amendments to the legislation. 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. The amendment sponsor shall have 24 hours to object to the decision by the PPT and may overturn the action 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 amendments shall be written using the assistance of A.I. such as ChatGPT and other language model algorithims.

...

Article 4: Debate


...

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

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:

Edited draft to change location.

With further consideration, Yellowstone is not the right place to drill into, so I changed location to Iliamna Volcano.

3. If an individual has the necessary support system to assist the individual in complying with post-transplant medical requirements, a covered entity may not consider the individualís inability to independently comply with post-transplant medical requirements to be medically significant for the purposes of section 2 of this title.

4. A covered entity shall make reasonable modifications to its policies, practices, or procedures to allow individuals with disabilities access to transplantation-related services, including diagnostic services, surgery, coverage, post-operative treatment, and counseling, unless the covered entity can demonstrate that making such modifications would fundamentally alter the nature of such services.

E.

F. Nothing in this section shall be deemed to require an insurer to provide coverage for a medically inappropriate organ transplant.


TITLE III: LIFE SUPPORT

1. No healthcare facility shall discontinue life-sustaining treatment to an incapacitated patient solely due to the futility of the patient's eventual recovery, unless the patient has signed an advance medical directive authorizing such discontinuation.


TITLE IV: FRIVOLOUS LAWSUITS

7. An employer is not permitted to retaliate or sanction against an employee for requesting leave, whether paid or unpaid.

8. No person seeking an organ donation may be prohibited from declining an otherwise-compatible donated organ that he is religiously opposed to accepting.
