The Speaker’s Word returns! Today’s Congressional report was prepared by Congressmen John Largo and Duncan Crowe and is followed by a brief introduction from Immigration Enforcement Director Dr Luis Sentieiro. Please be sure to subscribe and watch for additional news from Congress.
Hello and welcome American Citizens,
The 62nd US Congress has just concluded the second week of its term!
Accordingly, to increase transparency and better your opinion on the US government, we want to inform you of what your representatives are discussing, proposing, and ratifying in The Legislative Branch during our second week.
The Speaker's Word for Week 1 did not garner enough constructive feedback from you, the loyal American citizen, , so we strongly encourage everyone to comment with positive feedback or constructive criticism, therefore letting us know how we are doing as a Congressional body, and if there are any issues you want to see addressed or topics considered.
Let's move on...but please do remember to leave feedback.
We began our second week as all Congressional weeks should, with a sign-in to establish quorum. Remember, quorum is the minimum amount of votes that must be cast for the bill to be considered legitimate law. This week's quorum was set at 13 (down from 17 the previous week), as can be seen HERE.
After quorum was established, there was a discussion regarding whether or not to change the location of the Congressman Orientation threads, and a call to have these threads updated to the current game mechanics and political situation, HERE.
Our new President, John Killah, then had his first interaction with our Congress posting his MPP direction for this term. There was a bit of strife over a nation not on the YES list (YES = Approved MPP), but the Secretary of State explained the Executive's reasoning in making this decision.
As with many Presidential elections in recent memory, John Killah, the PotUS having just introduced himself and posted his MPP list, met a rogue impeachment proposal by EdCor of the AFA Party. Fortunately, this proposal was quickly shot down, and you can find the AFA's failure HERE.
The budget continues to be an issue, and, as a result, there have been discussions on Defense spending and funding as well as ways to increase revenue for the USA Government. This is still in the discussion phase and no actions or proposals have yet evolved from this discussion.
However, while intense budget discussions raged on in the Congressional forums, a loyal American Congressman, Mr. Swagg, passed a donation proposal, which can be found HERE. If you followed that link, you would realize that Congress donated EXACTLY 400k. We do this because, if we randomly donate, the Economic Council would have difficulty tracking our income and therefore not be able to recommend a budget or state our projected income.
Finally the best thing Congress has ever done:
The VOTE to establish Bacon as our Nation's official breakfast food has passed and met quorum! No thanks necessary, you're welcome America!
Now, so that we might improve, please leave a comment with what you, the American citizenry, want us to discuss and work to ratify.
Remember, we only seek to satisfy you.
Immigration Enforcement Service
We are the gatekeepers of USA, we filter who comes with friendly intent to join our nation from who comes to harm us. We work in cooperation with many agencies and Departments such as Department of State, Homeland Security and CIA. We blacklist bribers, PTOers and outlawed people who just come in to violate the US Constitution. The IES Director is appointed by the US Congress and it is his responsibility and judgement to decide with his agents whether someone enters the USA or not. Currently the IES has 4 Agents and counts with most of the congress to provide citizenship to the immigrants who pass the security clearance.
We are here to keep America safe despite the fact AFA does everything to violate this process and bring PTOers and unapproved Serbs into our borders.
I hope this was informative,
Dr Luis Sentieiro
Gratuitous Public Service Announcement
Speaker, 62nd US Congress
