Last term, this bill was blocked due to the Government legislative blockade.  Legally, I was thus barred from reintroducing it during the same session.  I intend to reintroduce it in the coming term.  The bill will be nearly identical -- I don't think it needs any significant changes.

I'm still going to vote against it, if I'm an MC again. The right to sanctuary is a time-honoured one.

And what does it mean in a Talossan context?  Does it mean that I can break the law and then say that I'm claiming sanctuary from Talossans United in Christ or some other religion, and therefore I can't be prosecuted?  Or do I have to go a church physically and take a picture that I'm in there, and then I can do some more crimes?

That second one! It sounds funnier.

Seriously, I can't believe we're in a position where I'm the one arguing against you against abolishing a quirky Talossan tradition. It's usually the other way around.

I'm not sure I want a Talossan who has been stalking or sexually harassing another Talossan, as an example, to be able to evade justice.  This law will be a lot less cute and funny if someone does something grotesque and then gets to hang around because of an enabling system.

It's a minor provision in the law that's never been used that originates in a bill that was clearly intended to be a messaging bill.  I didn't cut it from the legal code when I was putting together el Lexhatx because I tried to include literally everything I could to avoid any potential fights.

I am reintroducing this act, unchanged.

Going to advise the FreeDems majority in the Senäts to reject any changes to this ancient, quirky Talossan tradition

As I said, it's a minor provision in the law that's never been used, and it originates from a messaging bill.  It has no conceivable use except perhaps as a legal loophole to help someone escape justice.  If the Ziu affirmatively chooses to debate the provision and retain it, that will lend it real weight as a possible strategy.
