2. Infrastructure and Community Restoration: $70 million
Reconstruction of homes and public buildings: $40 million
Restoration of utilities (water, electricity, communication): $20 million
Rebuilding and upgrading roads and transportation links: $10 million

3. Any surplus funds after projects are completed will be rerouted to a dedicated emergency fund for Hawaii.

Section IV – Timeline

1. Immediate relief efforts and community support: Commencing immediately for a duration of 6 months.
2. Infrastructure and community restoration: Commencing within 1 month for a duration of 18-24 months.

Section V – Future Provisions

1. Research will be commissioned to study the effects of climate change on the Hawaiian Islands and the potential increase in fire risk.
2. Collaborations will be sought with global experts and organizations in forest fire prevention and mitigation.
3. Through the Rebuild Hawaii Act, we seek not only to rebuild Lahaina but to set a precedent for ecological, community, and infrastructural restoration in the face of disasters.

Motion to Expel Senator LouisvilleThunder

Whereas, LouisvilleThunder was credibly accused of doxing another member of Atlasia in 2021

Whereas, new information has been shared with me that shows that LouisvilleThunder’s doxing was both malicious and intentional (see below):











Whereas, LouisvilleThunder was able to escape deserved criminal punishment in part because this information regrettably was never shared with the prosecution because the source of this information had feared retaliation

Whereas, the Atlasian Constitution allows the Senate to discipline members and expel them by a two-thirds vote:

Resolved, that –

(1) The Senate condemns and expels Senator LouisvilleThunder from the Senate for conduct that disrespects the Atlasian people in a way that is not befitting a member of the Senate.

2. Article 8 of the OSPR is amended as follows:

Quote
1.) Senators can be subject to either Censure (formal statement of disapproval) or Expulsion by their peers, so long as reasonable justification exists in the form of unethical or corrupt behavior, inactivity, treason and such other offenses or behavior.

2.) Censure proceedings shall may only be initiated if at least nine three Senators have sponsored a motion of Censure, introduced in the Legislative Introduction Thread, against one of their Senate colleagues, citing the motives of why said Senator should be censored.

(....)

4.) Expulsion proceedings shall may only be initiated if:

a.) a Senator has not posted anything on the Atlas Fantasy Government board for 168 consecutive hours and has not posted a valid Leave of Absence (then the time covered by that LOA shall not count toward those 168 hours, but periods of inactivity before and after the LOA shall count as a continuous period, provided there are no interceding posts).

b.) Two Senators have sponsored an article of expulsion, introduced in the Legislative Introduction Thread, against one of their Senate colleagues.
