I will start the ball rolling here. Smile

I agree with I think everything in this bill, because that is the state of the union.
There really is no union, just chaos, because of the corruption of the last government of
the United States.
Therefore I see that all of the above is necessary. I also think the most needed form of
good government will be the courts, because of the multitude of decisions to be made
regarding people's private property etc.

Here are a couple suggestions of things I would add:

I would add that we outlaw abortion, because the establishment of the sanctity of life should be a first priority.

Secondly that it would maintain the postal system.

And finally, that it would take any excess funds to pay off all foreign debts and buy back American soil that was sold to foreign countries.

Samuel X? Cool. Cool But the technical term is Samx Razz

Since no Democrat/Liberal NRC has been appointed, none shall write on this thread. But they will oppose, of course.

Also, please specify what abortion is, so no loopholing. Late term, birth control, etc.

I'm good with it.

Abortion: Any interference in a pregnancy to destroy or "prevent" pregnancy.

Regardless of the medical term for what is being destroyed anything that becomes a human life in any form whether deformed or malfunctioning or not, shall be protected and not destroyed or mutated. The intent: the protection of human life.

I meant in the bill.

Also, I think we should specify when the Writ of Habeus Corpus can be reinstated, after an objective, perhaps?

Well, not much argumentation in this committee... Wink

___________________________________________

*back in character*

At this moment in time, we have a rather dire hostage situation. The police cannot do anything about it, a group has gone vigilante in order to get things done and we are sitting here doing nothing. If we do not act now, I fear that the anarchy and vigilantism will spread throughout the nation again.
So, I move that we accept the bill with the following amendment:

PROVISIONAL GOVERNMENT
Committee: Primary Committee
Principal Author: Representative Christopher S.
Bill No: H.R. 2
Delegation:
Title of Bill: An Act to Restore Order

BE IT ENACTED BY THE PROVISIONAL GOVERNMENT

SECTION 8: All forms of Abortion shall be illegal in this Nation.
Sub-SECTION A: Abortion shall be defined as: any interference in a pregnancy to destroy or "prevent" pregnancy.
Sub-SECTION B: Abortion shall be punished in the same way murder is punished. This shall be according to the laws in place in the several states.
Sub-SECTION C: Any laws about abortion which are contrary to this bill are hereby repealed.
SECTION 9: This bill shall go into effect 2 days after passage.

70,000,000 x 50 = 350,000,000 (!!!)

I want to amend it to 50 million.

*Note, we only have 1 billion left in the budget until ProGov ends. Sad

Can we put the bills that are not debated over at the House already?

I accept that as a motion, and also second it to get this bill to the voting. Also I second the original amendment.

Debate will begin on this proposed amendment to the amendment.


If there is no debate today, my action will be to call it to a vote:
Therefore tomorrow, voting may take place on this bill.

We are in committee and were therefore voting on it already. Do you want

If we need it on the floor to vote for it. I hereby, call this bill to the floor and all in favor say aye all opposed say no.

If there is a need for debate, that can take place in committee or out so let me know and I'll hold the vote.

If I need to bring it to the floor so I can vote. I will, if that's how it works.

Here is H.R. 3 I am the author so if you have any thoughts or questions please post them!

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.

I completely agree with everything in this bill. I would add one thing: the setting up of a committee which shall receive applications from oil companies that wish to set up pipelines and oil wells on public lands. Then the committee will be allowed to giveout permits for the oil companies to rent land (for cheap) from ProvGov in order to set up the wells and pipelines. This will help expand our economy and make us less dependent on foreign nations for our energy.
