If members have any bills which they wish to have considered, please post them here instead of on the ProvGov thread.
_______________________________________________
There are two parts of a bill, the Preamble and the Body.

Preamble: This section should provide your reasons for the necessity of your bill. Why is your topic something that should be addressed by the government? This section's clauses should always begin with a "Where as..."

Body: This section should be separated into sections and subsections. Each proposed idea for the implementation of the bill should be a section. Subsections should be used to provide further detail and clarification (definitions, etc.) for their appropriate bill sections.
Enactment Clause: This is the final section of the bill (and can be labeled as a section as normal). EACH BILL MUST HAVE AN ENACTMENT CLAUSE!! The enactment clause tells your fellow congressmen when your bill will take effect if passed. It may specify a future date (September 30, 2005) or a certain number of days following the passage of the bill (7 days after passage). Enactment dates more than 7 days after passage is used for most legislation and is the enactment period for normal legislation. Enactment dates of 2-4 days after passage should be used for Emergency Bills only.

I changed up the necessary enactment dates to real time enactment dates. So you could probably change it to be like, "7 days after passage".

AMERICAN PROVISIONAL GOVERNMENT
Committee: Primary Committee
Principal Author: Representative Sky-Opera
Bill No: H.R. 3
Delegation:
Title of Bill: An Act to Reduce Food Shortages and Prices
BE IT ENACTED BY THE AMERICAN PROVISIONAL GOVERNMENT

Preamble: The American economy is currently facing food shortages due to the increase in food prices and the current lawlessness that has destroyed cultural structure. Therefore as there are very few businesses that are able to produce food the government do what it does best in establishing order and making it safe while staying out of the way of free enterprise.

Section 1: The government will hire a media source at low expense to the tax payer to publicize the need and potential for the industries and farming for food production to grow and expand for the good of everyone involved. And also it will inform the people that using a bartering system is perfectly fit for the times and will promote the free-er exchange of needed goods to everyone’s mutual benefit.

Section 2: Then the government will remove all taxes on food produced in the nation; however it may tax imported food goods, for the time being in order to promote internal national growth. This will reduce the price of food.

Section 3: To protect fragile industries and the public peace it will require that mass produced food meet FDA standards to prevent revenge rioting etc.

Section 4: The government will start selling some government lands cheaply to help boost the farming industry by providing legitimate incintives.

Section 5: This bill shall be in effect 2 days after passage.

Bill No: H.R. 5
Delegation:
Title of Bill: An Act to Not Accept the United Nations' Peacekeepers

BE IT ENACTED BY THE AMERICAN PROVISIONAL GOVERNMENT

Preamble: Whereas H.R.2 was passed and our military has begun to restore order to our nation, and since the violence has been much abated, and our own military, along with our law enforcement officers, shall be able to deal with the last of the violence, and since we no longer need the help of the United Nations' Peacekeepers,
SECTION 1: The United States' Representative to the United Nations shall ask the United Nations to not send Peacekeepers to our nation. He shall show them how the violence is slowing and our forces are strong enough to bring back order and peace. However, he shall let the United Nations know that if the violence in our borders gets out of control, we shall ask for the aid of Peacekeepers.
SECTION 2: Because true peace cannot come until all our citizens are free of criminal tyranny, the Generals of our military shall be encouraged to begin restoring order in our smaller towns and villages.
SECTION 3: In order to discern the further needs of our military and how long the writ of Habeus Corpus needs to be suspended, two of our top Generals shall be called to speak before the Congress and answer questions from our Representatives. They shall be called up three days after this bill is passed and shall remain in the Congress until released by the Speaker of the House.
SECTION 4: This bill shall go into effect two days after passage.


This bill was pulled by its author.
