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.

Emergency De-Escalation Resolution

To provide safeguards for the country by defending its national security, geographic integrity, and peace in response to the ongoing crises in the Republic of Atlasia.

To the President Pro Tempore: I request that this bill be put through in the national emergencies category.

Whereas, the Congress of the Republic has been assembled to condemn the ongoing crises in Atlasia and do hereby establish:

Section 1. Title and Purpose

1. a panel of the duly elected federal lawmakers in Lincoln to investigate the origins of secession in Lincoln; one of which shall include a civilian

2. to encourage the expulsion of and arrest of those responsible for instigation of this crisis in Lincoln and perpetuation of secessionist ideals

Section 2. Establishment

3. To convene a panel of 4 Congressional lawmakers from each region in working with the regional executives and legislature of Fremont, Lincoln, and the South. This panel may hereby have 3 additional advisors or more via modification by statute. Meetings shall occur at least once weekly and shall be disbanded when the crisis dissipates.

4. Encourage the President of Atlasia to stand down the National Guard

5. To condemn the remarks of Attorney General Truman and Southern Governor LouisvilleThunder

Lol, you are a clown. This would do nothing but end the current peace process and ensure a violent secession.

This is also obviously unconstitutional, you cannot arrest someone for promoting "secessionist ideals." Fortunately, the Bill of Rights is still in effect!

I sincerely urge our PPT to block this drivel from the floor.
