Union Administrative Board: City 8 Congress - Passed Laws & Regulations

This is a list of all passed laws & regulations ever since the start of the server.
DATE OF PROPOSAL: 13/08/2020
PROPOSED BY: "A. DESORANNO"
DATE OF IMPLEMENTATION: 18/08/2020
BILL DESCRIPTION:
"The purpose of this bill is to give the hard-working Congressmen and Congresswomen the rewards and recognition that they deserve. This amounts to relief from regular workshifts and/or work details, relaxed clothing restrictions, a salary of workforce coupons on top of existing token salary, and sufficient office space to conduct the duties of the office that the Congresspeople have fought hard to claim."

BILL CLAUSES:
"Relief of Workshift Duties - All congressmen and congresswomen, irrespective of seniority of rank or privilege, be exempted from all workshifts where the work may negatively impact the ability of the member to discharge the duties of their office, unless aforementioned congressmen and/or congresswoman will otherwise."
"Provision of workforce coupon salary - The Administrative Board must budget and make available a comfortable salary of one workforce coupon per six hours for all congresspeople irrespective of seniority of rank or privilege."
"Sufficiency of office space - Sufficient office space, including a desk, chair and stationery, should be supplied for the Congress Department of the Administrative Board to increase their ability to discharge the duties of their office."

DATE OF PROPOSAL: 26/08/2020
PROPOSED BY: "J. SPINSTER"
DATE OF IMPLEMENTATION: 11/10/2020
BILL DESCRIPTION:
"The purpose of this act is to provide citizens with a way to contact the authorities in the event of an emergency and to distribute them useful information that they would otherwise be required to contact the Civil Protection in order to acquire. More specifically, this act requests the Civil Workers’ Union for the development of a modern wall-terminal for citizens to use. Below are more details on what the aforementioned device should be able to do."

BILL CLAUSES (TERMINAL FEATURES):
"Contact Authorities - The terminal should have the ability to contact civil protection teams in an instant. While request device do exist for that sole reason, some citizens neglect them and do not acquire them for their own reasons - having stationary terminals would allow people to contact the authorities no matter what."
"Distribute CDP information - A lot of residents take up the time of civil protection officers to ask them how many Civic Deed Points they have, when they could be elsewhere, doing something else like stopping a crime. Allowing the terminals to display a citizen’s CDP amount should dissolve this problem."
"Information & notice distribution - In addition to the two features above, the terminal should also be able to display news, notices and information to citizens. This would dissolve the need to put up papers on notice boards or making repeat broadcasts for reminders, if there ever comes the need to do so."

DATE OF IMPLEMENTATION: 27/08/2020
BILL DESCRIPTION:
"The purpose of this bill is to help citizens launch their career more easily and advance in the society in a more efficient manner. This bill introduces 3 ways of doing this - by increasing token distribution in ration packets, decreasing the amount of WFCs required for a CDP and decreasing the business rent from 75 tokens to 50."

BILL CLAUSES:
"Increase of Token distribution - Increase the amount of tokens distributed to citizens through rations. Specifically, change Working-Class token amount from 5 to 10, Middle-Class token amount from 10 to 20 and Upper-Class token amount from 20 to 30. We have plenty of tokens in storage available to distribute to the populace, and this will help people get along easier."
"Decrease WorkForce Coupon Trade-In amount - Decrease the amount of WorkForce Coupons required to exchange for a Civic Deed Point from 20 to 15. Many people have requested this, and their loyalty shows by their dedication and participation in Work Cycles - there is no need to require 20 WorkForce Coupons for this."
"Decrease business rent - Many business owners state that it is difficult and often not profitable to run a business due to the prices of the stock that they wish to purchase and then sell. As we cannot easily decrease the stock prices, we can help by decreasing the business rent."

BILL DESCRIPTION:
"The purpose of this act is to renovate and improve Residential Block 3, to bring it up to standards with the rest of the Residential Blocks in the district, for more resident comfort."

BILL CLAUSES:
"Clean Residential Block floors & walls - The floors in Residential Block 3 are filled with dirt, rubble, and other junk. The first action is to clean those out in order to enable us to move forward with larger changes and renovations. While cleaning the floors, we should also focus on the walls with a new coat of paint and the removal of some graffiti and posters."
"Wall & Floor replacement - Some floors and walls are broken and need replacement in order for the apartments to function as intended. Specifically, the apartment on the first floor needs a new wall and the floor at the top floor needs replacement as it is broken. This includes the ceiling in the lobby area of the residential block - it needs replacement."
"Lighting improvements - The lighting inside Residential Block 3 can be described as very poor to perhaps even non-existent in some areas and floors. This can be a cause of the wiring or perhaps the light itself - it needs replacement."

DATE OF IMPLEMENTATION: TBA
BILL DESCRIPTION:
"It has come to recent attention that underneath City Eight, in the sewers, an infestation of Xenanian flora and fauna has been growing and spreading drastically. This has been reported by direct eyewitnesses and in the paper “The Rinsha Times”. This could pose a serious threat to city infrastructure and control if not properly eradicated and controlled in the future. Proposing the following clauses would help solve the emergency at hand."

BILL CLAUSES:
"Organization - In order to combat this threat, a new organization must be formed inside the Civil Workers Union dubbed Infestation Cleanup. A cleanup crew to clean up the current and future infestations (If any). This organization shall be equipped with all the proper equipment such as cleanup solution, Proper hazmat gear, Proper tools, and armed supervision during the shifts mandated in the sewers. Senior-Workers will be granted and may be required to complete the Xenanian flora cleanup course which will give them certification for running cleanup workshifts."
"Immediate Measures - Immediate measures would call for the infestation to be cleaned up right away without delay. Importing the required items if they have to be. It might take several weeks before the infestation is fully cleared out along with an extra week of monitoring if needed to be. It would call for the blocking of the areas in the sewer so our workers can do their work without being disturbed. Armed Civil Protection officers should also be present during this to ensure shift safety. Perhaps the arrest rule should be lifted down there for any passersby that are encountered."
"Future-Proofing - For the city to be future-proofed a good supply of cleanup equipment must be stored in the district. Along with training as many workers as possible on how to deal with said situation. Perhaps bi-yearly or quarterly checkups should be done as well to ensure safety."

BILL DESCRIPTION:
"Following the unfortunate, disastrous event in the city, a number of workshifts were required to take place in order for the city to be returned to its previous, functional state. Alas, several individuals were exempt from the work cycle due to their citizenship status or their congress position, and the workshift was under-manned, resulting in lowered efficiency. This bill will add an exception to the upper-class and congressperson exemptions to allow for vital shifts to be completed more effectively and efficiently in the future."

BILL CLAUSES:
"
Upper-Class Workshift Participation - Conscripting Upper-Class citizens in time of great need."

DATE OF IMPLEMENTATION: 28/02/2021
BILL DESCRIPTION:
"It is widely known that businesses are one of the primary, if not the most important driving forces of our city’s economy; a major cog in the machine that keeps it afloat and functional. The Civil Workers’ Union has seen fit to entrust ordinary citizens who have obtained a Work Permit and a Business License to run said businesses - something that is oftentimes uncommon in other cities and is one of the defining factors that make our city stand out from the others. However, there come times where the Distribution Blocks are misused and oftentimes do not serve the purpose that they were originally meant and designed for. While they may still pay their obligatory weekly rent in order to preserve the validity of the Business License, they may not be utilized at their fullest potential and therefore do not benefit the economy as much as they possibly could. This Bill enables the Civil Workers’ Union to take action against this issue and solve it by forcefully evicting the Business owner from the Distribution Block."

BILL CLAUSES:
"
Forceful eviction of misused Distribution Blocks - If a DB is misused, the CWU may evict it."
"Distribution Block post-eviction refunds - Should the business be evicted, the owner gets to keep the stock."
"Business License post-eviction preservation - Should the business be evicted, the owner gets their license refunded."

BILL DESCRIPTION:
"Although civilians are detained and arrested every single day, they do not always know what the cause for their arrest is: how they transgressed and violated the Universal Union's laws. In many cases, civilians would commit less transgressions, if they were informed of them beforehand. The Availability of Transgression Information Bill ensures, that all civilians have a way of knowing, what they can and can not do, which areas they are not allowed to enter, and for what reason they are being detained. Informing the populace of the transgressions beforehand may reduce the crime levels in City 8. "

BILL CLAUSES:
"Public transgression information - The Civil Terminals are to feature a list of transgressions and contraband, as well as a map of the city.
"Availability of probable cause assessment - Law-Violators are to always be informed of the law they violated."

PROPOSED BY: "E. KAMSKI"
DATE OF IMPLEMENTATION: N/A
BILL DESCRIPTION:
"Request Devices are one of, if not the most useful at a civilian’s disposal to ensure their personal safety, and the safety of those around them. Request Devices can be used to contact Civil Protection directly in the case of an emergency, such as witnessing a crime of any sort, or in the event that they feel threatened. That being said, there is a ‘template’ of sorts that can be used by the individual issuing the assistance request, that being their name, their location, and the exact nature of their nature. However, more often than not, requesters fail to follow this format, not providing a name or even a location for Civil Protection Officers to use to respond effectively, often resulting in either in the witnessed crime not being intercepted in time, the individual under threat getting harmed in some way, or the requester getting charged and punished for prompting the officers to search for them. Furthermore, rumor has it that there have been cases of malicious individuals utilizing request devices to flood the request feed of Civil Protection Officers, hindering their ability to carry out their duties effectively. This act changes that, making the Request Devices act more like the new Civil Terminals."

BILL CLAUSES:
"Fabrication of Trackable Request Devices - The CRU shall research and develop a new variant of the Request Devices with trackers fitted into them.
"Declaration of Legacy Request Devices - Old Request Devices are to be collected and exported."
