Bill: 2nd radio 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.
|The first bill is going to fail I have come to accept that but I'm feel people do not truly understand the idea behind the bill so in this bill we will provide more details on what exactly the bill is. The bill is mostly meant to provide a informative radio station controlled by the government so in the case of danger a person can tune into this raidio station to get updates about the natural disaster or whatever danger they are in while yes a regular owner of a raidio station could do this they probaly could not get the information that we could get on the situation. Note: all radio stations will stay as private enterprise except for this government informative one.|
Old value:: All radio stations are private.
Current: All radio stations are private.
Proposed: The government subsidises independent non-profit-making cooperatives for educational and informational purposes; other private non-subsidised radio stations are allowed.

|Message||The thing is that private radio stations make money by giving people what they want to hear. The fact is that people want to know if a major disaster is going on, and therefore private companies will give that to them. To have a government subsidised radio station is dangerous as it introduces the possibility of biased. It also takes out competition in the market. We understand the sentiment behind your proposal, however we cannot support it, even in its new guise.|

|Message||A law mandating that private stations must air government broadcasts in time of emergency should suffice.|
