Chapter 5: Article 6 - The States

Article Six

Section 1
The Confederation of Free States shall insure to every state a republican form of government, and shall protect each from invasion, and upon application of the legislature or of the executive when the legislature cannot be convened, against domestic violence.

Section 2
New states may be added by submitting a State constitution to the Senate of the Confederation of Free States. The prospective state must not be at war, and must not have seceded from the Confederation of Free States within the previous ten years. The prospective State constitution must establish a government elected by the people, and must not conflict in any way with this Constitution of the Confederation of Free States. The Senate shall conduct hearings, call witnesses, and take note of any shortcomings, and if found constitutional, by a two-thirds vote, shall announce the prospective state fit for statehood. If found unfit by the Senate, the prospective state may appeal to the Supreme Court of the Confederation of Free States. A two-thirds majority in the Supreme Court shall be necessary to overrule the Senate findings.

Once the prospective State is pronounced fit for statehood, a referendum election shall be held in the prospective state, duly monitored by officers of the Confederation of Free States. A two-thirds majority shall be necessary in the referendum to attain statehood. Once the election is certified, statehood shall begin on a day designated by the Senate, or in one year following the referendum, whichever comes first. The new state shall conduct a special election for Senators, and for the House of Representatives. Until a census is taken and congressional districts are drawn, the state shall have one member of the House of Representatives.

If the prospective state has a population of greater than 10 per cent of the population of the Confederation of Free States, the prospective state must be divided into smaller states until this is no longer the case. Each state must then go through the process for statehood separately.

No state can be refused statehood if all the requirements of this Constitution are met.

Section 3
Any state may secede from the Confederation of Free States by referendum of the people of the State, by simple majority. A petition of one per cent of the population of the State shall be sufficient to require a referendum. Upon certification of the passage of such referendum, the State shall be removed from statehood one year from the date of the referendum.

Section 4
Full faith and credit shall be given in each State to the public acts, records, and judicial proceedings of every other State. The citizens of each State shall be entitled to all privileges and immunities of citizens of the several States.

A person charged in any State with serious crime, who shall flee from justice, and be found in another State, shall, on demand of the executive authority of the State from which he fled, be delivered up, to be removed to the State having jurisdiction of the crime.

Section 5
No State shall pass any law that violates the human rights enumerated in Article I of this Constitution, and no State shall pass any law that the Congress of the Confederation of Free States is specifically prohibited from passing. In addition to the Federal tax Congress may impose on corporations, State legislatures may impose an additional five percent, and local governments an additional five percent, on the gross income of corporations.
