This Week in Political News:

One new bill was introduced into the Legislature by Speaker of the Legislature, Evan Lee.

H.R. 008 – Legal Adjustments Act of 2021,

  • This Bill amends the San Andreas code of Laws with countless changes
  • Adds additional clarification for ‘Public servants’ and ‘Aggravated Circumstances’
  • It also adds new offences ranging from hunting regulations, vehicular crimes, failure to identify/ appear, illegal practice of medicine, new battery and assault charges, and attempted Murder of a Public Servant.
  • New laws under the traffic code from riding on freeways to impeding the flow of traffic, windshield and tint regulations. 
  • One of the more controversial sections is Sections 7’s Failure to Inform, which has no protections for people who were coerced into not saying anything if a crime is committed. If used against a coerced person, they could serve time as a felon without appropriate protections.
  • A user on twitter has raised points about Riding on a Freeway being open ended with determinations to be made by Law Enforcement regarding “only acceptable if there is no other roadway available.”
  • Unlawful consumption has been criticized by some as a ‘Blanket ban’ on major outdoor activities, such as Alcohol at the beach. It also bans consumption of marijuana outside of a personal residence, some users have stated that this could allow marijuana consumption inside homes.

A vote has has not taken place at the time of publication

“If there was one thing you could change about this government, what would you change?”
Here are the top answers:

  • Management of the Economy
  • Benefits to people, rather than reactions to criminals
  • Transparency
  • Availability
  • Accessibility
  • Policy on Cannabis 
  • Stance on open carry to no carry
