Bill: Clean Air Act
Votes: This is an ordinary bill. It requires more yes votes than no votes. This bill will not pass any sooner than the deadline.
Voting deadline: May 2415
|Smoking will continue to be a part of our society, but it will be done outside, and not in my personal space. Also, promoting clean air for us to breath is not enough, we must enforce our beliefs, or else we are simply playing politics instead of being politicians, thus we must begin to restrict pollution.|
Old value:: The government provides pollution prevention guidelines, but does not enforce them.
Current: The government enforces highly restrictive industrial pollution standards.
Proposed: The government enforces moderate pollution restrictions.

|Message||The LDP can support Article 1. We do not believe that businesses can be relied on to favor enviornmental responsibility over profit, and sadly must therefore be restricted by law.|
We support Article 2 in theory, but not in practice. While the spirit of this law is with the health and wellbeing of the Lodamese people, we are commited to the self-reliance of local governments.
We feel that these proposals may be more successful broken down individually.

|Message||While the Unified Loduman Party agrees that it would be best if local governments had charge and power to eliminate hazzardous second hand smoking. We find that local governments very well may have more members who are against eliminating public smoking in some areas, and this poses problems. First of all, the people who do not want to have their rights to not die at the age of 29 of lung cancer could be outvoted by those who will smoke a million cigarettes in their life and still live to be 100. And it is unreasonable to ask these people to move simply because they live next to insensitve pricks. Secondly, if you live in one part of our country and in your part of the country you are permitted to smoke where ever you would like, and you travel to another part of the country where smoking is prohibited, how will you know. Do you expect the areas of the country where smoking is banned to post signs every fifteen feet to let the out of towners know the lifestyle change? Of course not, for that would be ridiculous. That would be as if I were to travel to a different part of the world where they drive on the oppositie side of the road, and the country I am visiting be forced to have signs telling me what their cultural norms are. Instead, we need a national stance in the name of health and safety as well as basic human rights.|

|Message||Presently, our factories have no regulation whatsoever, and are permitted to burn any chemicals and waste into the air that they want to and have caused quite a smog effect in our cities. Also, they are permitted to dump waste into our water with no regard for our safety and health. This needs fixed.|

|Message||We advise splitting it.|
|Date||23:09:45, June 16, 2007 CET||From||The Unified Lodamun Party||To||Debating the Clean Air Act|
