BILL
To

Amend the Criminal Court Sentencing Act​

The people of the Commonwealth of Redmont, through their elected Representatives in the Congress and the force of law ordained to that Congress by the people through the constitution, do hereby enact the following provisions into law:

1 - Short Title and Enactment
(1) This Act may be cited as the "Sentencing Quickfix Act"
(2) This Act shall be enacted immediately upon its signage.

2 - Purpose
(1) The purpose of the Criminal Court Sentencing Act was to provide more discretion to the courts, by instating maximum fines and jail time for each respective laws category in the Rules & Laws. The issue with such act in its current form, is that some specific laws have fines and jail time well over the set maximum for the respective category.
(2) This bill is a simple amending fix to allow laws with punishments that are more than the category maximum to be exempt from the maximum, to prevent conflict of law.

3 - Amendments
(1) Section 3 of the Criminal Court Sentencing Act adds:
"The maximums shall not apply, and may be exceeded, in individual laws that specify penalties, in fines and any other applicable sentence, over the respective category amount."
