Format: Amendment

Name: The Planet-State Amendment
Character Name: Gáddjá Aikio
Sponsors: Mercury,
Planetary System: Venus
Bill, motion or amendment: Amend “planet” to “state” in the second senate law ((ooc: we need better names for these)).

Originally reads as:
“No planet may use chemical or genetic warfare against another member of the federation. Evidence beyond a reasonable doubt that this has taken place will result in immediate suspension of the planet from the federation and military action being taken against them.”

Amended version would be:
“No state may use chemical or genetic warfare against another member of the federation. Evidence beyond a reasonable doubt that this has taken place will result in immediate suspension of the state from the federation and military action being taken against them.”

((I’ll add appropriate titles to the acts))

#Please from hereon-forth,when publishing new laws, give them an appropriate title, e.g. The Free Trade Act

As this is within the authority granted to the Senate by the clause granting it competency over amending existing legislation, this amendment is cleared to pass.

The Chief Secretary has signalled that this amendment is of undue importance to the security of the Union, this act will be subject to a concurrent debate and vote ((just speeding this one along as it’s kinda important)).

Revoke the sponsorship from Kapus Kiraly on this bill. We will not support such atrocious measures to such minor threats.

Character Name: Matthias Hunyadi
Sponsors: Kapus Kiraly
Planetary System: Titan
Bill, motion or amendment:

Dub all unclaimed soil as permanently unclaimable (similar to Antarctica), and allow any power to freely move and mine said zones.

Order! Please give your bill a name.

Following the successful publication of the peace accord, we have agreed to pull this bill from the record. @oli will remove it when he gets back; it is no longer needed.
