RETIREE INCOME PROTECTION ACT


Quote
1. Any financial service provider who invests and manages a 401(K) plan hereby possess a fiduciary duty to make investment decisions as a reasonably prudent investor would for the benefit of the beneficiaries of the investments. Accordingly no such officer, agent, or employee shall make investment decisions for a 401(K) plan that prioritize the proprietary funds of the financial service provider or unreasonably increases administrative costs for the fund or investment fees for the financial service provider when such decision is made for a purpose other than benefiting the beneficiaries of the investments.

2. Any 401(K) plan with assets totaling less than $5 Million shall be prohibited from incurring an expense ratio exceeding 1.05% of assets.

3. Any 401(K) plan with assets totaling more than $5 Million but less than $20 Million shall be prohibited from incurring an expense ratio exceeding 0.8% of assets.

4. Any 401(K) plan with assets exceeding $20 Million shall be prohibited from incurring an expense ratio exceeding 0.5% of assets.

5. No financial service provider shall offer a revenue sharing agreement to intermediaries for choosing a fund that exceeds 0.25% of fund management costs.

6. Any 401(K) plan shall annually disclose to all investors in such fund any fee, expense, or administrative cost incurred annually in the management of such fund. This includes but is not limited to any revenue sharing cost.

Any employee with an existing 401(K) plan provided by an employer who takes a job with a new employer shall be permitted to transfer the value of the existing equity in the 401(K) plan into a 401(K) plan offered by the new employer with no tax consequence. Employers shall nor charge for such transfer. If the new employer does not offer a 401(K) plan, then the employee may convert the value of the existing equity in the 401(K) plan into a fixed-payment annuity upon retirement with no tax consequence.

Atlasian Referendum Amendment

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

Quote
Section 2. National Referendums

1. Certain legislation may be subject to the full authority of the eligible voting populace through federally sanctioned referendums.

2. Federal referendums are to be sanctioned under any of the following methods:

a.) Citizens may submit legislation under the Senate Legislation Introduction Thread with the expressed intent that it be reviewed as a potential referendum. Upon its ascension to the Senate for consideration, voting members must provide at least two-thirds approval for the motion to proceed.

b.) Upon the veto of a bill by the President of the Republic of Atlasia, the Senate has the right to request that the legislation be forwarded to the Atlasian populace in lieu of a veto override.

3. Upon the approval of a national vote, the Secretary of Federal Elections is to sponsor and certify said event. A minimum of one week for a campaign period is required to be allotted prior to the referendum. The duration of referendums are not to exceed 72 hours and may be held in concurrence with other, regularly scheduled federal elections.

Quote from: Amendment Explanation
This Constitutional Amendment creates the right for nationally held referendums, sponsored by the Department of Federal Elections, to take place. Citizens are able to submit legislation as potential referenda, and the Senate will vote on whether to move forward with holding one. A referendum can also be approved by the Senate for a President-vetoed bill, or the President can approve a bill for a referendum instead of signing or vetoing the legislation.

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.

Introducing with priority:

Quote
Capital Referendum Act

- Recognizing the large number of voters in the Capital naming referendum who voted for "None of the Above", voted for a choice that failed to become a finalist, or wrote comments on their ballot decrying the Capital relocation process
- Recognizing the presence of a public campaign against the moving of the Capital: https://talkelections.org/FORUM/index.php?topic=569688.0
- Desiring to have the final outcome regarding our capital accepted by the people

The Atlasian Senate hereby authorizes the following referendum to be placed on the December 2023 Federal Ballot:

"Shall the implementation of SB 117-41, to move the Atlasian Capital, continue?"

With the following options:

- NAY, which would constitute a repeal of SB 117-41 in full
- AYE but re-select the name, under which the naming process would be repeated, under the same process as before except 10 finalists will be selected.

[The name currently selected by the previous referendum would remain the legal name until the new naming process is complete. No finalist from such referendum would have automatic inclusion in the new process, all names would need to be (re-)suggested and (re-)selected.]

- AYE and keep the previously selected name in place.

I move to designate this under a presidential slot.
