World Assembly Resolutions
Since the rise of the World Assembly from the ashes of its predecessor, the Bureaucracy That Cannot Be Named, WA member nations have worked tirelessly to improve the standard of the world. That, or tried to force other nations to be more like them. But that's just semantics.
Below is every World Assembly resolution ever passed.

GENERAL ASSEMBLY RESOLUTION # 133
Repeal "Missing Minors Act"
A resolution to repeal previously passed legislation.
Proposed by: Sanctaria
Description: WA General Assembly Resolution #131: Missing Minors Act (Category: International Security; Strength: Mild) shall be struck out and rendered null and void.
Argument: NOTING that the Missing Minors Act has good intentions;
RECOGNISING that GA#131 was intended as a replacement for a previously repealed resolution,
HOWEVER REALISING that the Act does not put in place effective measures for the finding of missing children,
THE WORLD ASSEMBLY,
ACKNOWLEDGES the following limitations of the resolution text:
»1: there is a lack of a clear distinction between a runaway and a missing child;
»2: the safety of a missing child is put in doubt due to the lack of details regarding a database and whether the public, including child abductors, would have access;
»3: it allows nations to reclassify what constitutes a minor in their nation, thereby enabling them to bypass the creation of an MCO, the main efficacy of this Act;
»4: while individual member nations are able to apply to the WA for funds, nations are merely "recommended" to provide adequate funding for MCOs, thereby allowing nations to evade the spirit of this Act by setting a substandard level of monetary funding;
»5: the resolution only applies when the custodian is unaware of the whereabouts of the minor, oblivious to the fact that some custodians neither care nor want said minors;
»6: the resolution doesn't adequately deal with the situation when a child returns, of their own freewill or otherwise;
REPEALS GA #131, the Missing Minors Act.

GENERAL ASSEMBLY RESOLUTION # 134
Guns and Mental Capacity
A resolution to tighten or relax gun control laws.
Category: Gun Control
Proposed by: Darenjo
Description: The General Assembly,
AWARE of the sad fact that there are those among the sapient beings of the universe that suffer from varying forms of mental incompetency,
ALSO AWARE that in many nations, gun rights are a fundamental part of their constitutions or laws,
BELIEVING, however, that those deemed to be mentally incompetent, in the interest of protecting themselves and their peers, should not be allowed to handle guns,
The General Assembly hereby,
I. DEFINES, for the purposes of this resolution,
II. CLARIFIES that for a being to count as being "mentally incompetent" they need only fit one of the above definitions for "mentally incompetent";
III. DECLARES that a judge or other judicial body may order someone to be tested for being "mentally incompetent", and can recommend that somebody be classified as such, but cannot order somebody to be considered "mentally incompetent" for the purposes of this resolution;
IV. BANS those who are "mentally incompetent" from purchasing, selling, handling, using, or assisting in the testing of guns;
V. ALLOWS for those who are "mentally incompetent", to challenge their status and take a test that, should they pass, would lift from them the status of "mentally incompetent" for the purposes of this resolution only;
VI. CHARGES the World Health Authority (WHA) with creating a list of conditions that could potentially cause someone to become "mentally incompetent", creating a test for the purposes of Article IV, and actively disseminating that information, through the Universal Library Coalition (ULC) and other information banks;
VII. CLARIFIES that this does not affect the gun laws of individual nations with regards to people not deemed to be "mentally incompetent";

GENERAL ASSEMBLY RESOLUTION # 135
Universal Standard Time Act
A resolution to reduce barriers to free trade and commerce.
Category: Free Trade
Proposed by: Opiachus
The World Assembly hereby:
DEFINES and CREATES the WA Universal Time (WAUT) as a common time measure for the WA across all WA nations as a co-ordinated time measure designed to increase government effectiveness and provide a universal time for the WA's internal use.
WA Universal Time in this document will now be known as UT (Universal Time).
FORMS the World Assembly Time Board (WATB), tasked with regulating UT around all nations to be synchronized within half a second (0.5 seconds or 500 milliseconds) of a master atomic clock started once this resolution is passed. The atomic precision master clock shall be kept to match a chosen observatory's time as defined below. It will use a second defined as 9,192,631,770 transitions between the two hyperfine ground states of a caesium-133 atom, thereby making the master clock an atomic clock.
FURTHER DEFINES that the WATB observes and keeps the master clock to match the UT time tracked at an observatory picked by the WATB. Time observation will start when this legislation is passed by the General Assembly. Master clock will be kept in check by adding "leaps" of various intervals to keep the clock correct to the observatory chosen.
SELECTS a universal 24 hour, 60 minute, 60 second day for WA internal use. UT will use this format.
CLARIFIES that an hour is 60 minutes, and a minute is 60 seconds. The exact scientific definition of a second is 9,192,631,770 electronic transitions between the two hyperfine ground states of caesium-133 atoms.
FURTHER CLARIFIES that in no way does UT substitute or replace any other time zone, or forces members to use UT as an official time zone.
STRONGLY RECOMMENDS member states to define UT/WAUT by the definition provided above, and to recognize this act and it's implements as an official time measurement for government use.
URGES member states to contribute to the WATB by hosting a secondary clock to provide a backup. Please note that the clock in question needs to be a caesium-133 atomic clock.
The World Assembly hereby passes the Universal Standard Time Act and it's implements.
