Dueling Act of 2009


Submitted amid the flurry of activity overcoming Parliament in April 2009, this bill was - like the Funny Hat bill before it - a resubmission of an older bill, namely the Dueling Bill.


MP Susano (FFF) submitted this bill to the Lower House of Parliament on April 24, 2009. The bill was not contested by the Landsraad.
