Bill: Federal Government Devolution Act

Details

Submitted by[?]: Freedom Party

Status[?]: defeated

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: March 2135

Description[?]:

1) Food sale liscence applications are far too many (and federal employees too few) for the Federal government to properly look over and investigate all of the applications. Local governments should do this in order for a more satisfactory job to be done.

2) Positive discrimination: While the Freedom Party does not believe in "positive" discrimination, it is true that there may be inequalities in the hiring system in some regions. However, only one or two regions may need this. As such, the Freedom Party believes that we should devolve this power to the local governments.

MessageI agree with the devolution of food licensing to local governments; however, I am unwilling to support any form of government regulation of hiring policies.

ToDebating the Federal Government Devolution Act
MessageWe approve of neither. The government decides on food labelling- this is not to say that local government does not have a role in enfocing this rule.

MessageIf it's a federal law, the federal government should enforce it.

ToDebating the Federal Government Devolution Act
MessageBut you can't guarantee that local governments will enforce sell-by dates, for example. The national government already does. Passing the buck down to the local level leaves the system open to abuses beyond our control.

MessageYou can't guarantee that the federal government will either. Corrtuption is a fact of government, be it local or federal.

MessageWell, we do enforce sell by dates! That's the law that we currently have!

ToDebating the Federal Government Devolution Act
MessageWhat, do you think that local governments will not abide by the law? Besides, law has nothing to do with corruption.

Date09:14:15, October 31, 2005 CET
From Aloria Green Socialist Party
ToDebating the Federal Government Devolution Act
MessageNo, I mean that this law makes it possible for local governments to lower their standards. For example, one of the regional governments may decide that they don't want to put dates on food. How is that in anyone's interest? If we make the law, we can be sure. Devolution is merely the abdication responsibility on our part.

MessageThis has nothing to do with standards, it's about liscencing.

Date09:54:07, November 01, 2005 CET
From Aloria Green Socialist Party
ToDebating the Federal Government Devolution Act
MessageOk, even if I were to agree with proposal one, I can't agree to ANY interference with hiring policies.

ToDebating the Federal Government Devolution Act
MessageThe People's Equality is mixed on the first proposal but dead against the second, having hiring policies seems silly, the best person for the job should be hired regardless of any group that person belongs to

    Random fact: Any RP law granting extraordinary "emergency powers" or dictator-like powers to a government must be passed by at least a 2/3rds majority, but may always be overturned by a simple majority vote of the legislature.
