Congressional Update - 12/28/2012

Day 1,865, 18:44 Published in Canada Canada by Acacia Mason

Good Evening eCanada,

I am submitting for your review, my first week of activity in Congress.

Propose Poland as a NE -- Voted NO

This was a rogue proposal made on the last day of the previous congressional session. As it was a rogue proposal, I voted No.

Transfer $120,000 CAD to Canadian Civil Defence -- Voted NO

This was a second rogue proposal made on the last day of the previous congressional session. As it was a rogue proposal, I voted No.

Propose MPP With Turkey -- Voted YES

The Turkish CP proposed an MPP with us and as Congress seemed in favour, I voted YES to the proposal.

Propose MPP With Ireland -- Voted YES

The Irish CP proposed an MPP. Our long standing history of mutual defense of support made a YES vote both logical and automatic.

Transfer $70,000 CAD To The National Bank Of Canada -- Voted YES

This was a planned transfer on behalf of Congress and thus I voted YES to the proposal

ITEMS OF DEBATE

In Open Door Congress, a motion was made to elect Homer J Simpson, the Speaker of the House. I seconded the motion as Homer is a 16 term Congressman with an impeccable service record to the Nation. It made sense to continue his duties as Speaker as he has done an exemplary job to date as far as I can see.

There was a motion made to amend the Congressional Rules of Order to reflect the following regarding the Speaker of The House:

2. The speaker is selected as follows:
a) At the conclusion of the in game congress election the sitting speaker ensures all qualifying congressmen are masked appropriately.
b) The speaker creates a nomination topic for interested congressmen to nominate for the speaker position.
c) Once all nominations are posted, and no earlier than 00:00 erep on the 28th, the speaker posts the vote in the ODC voting thread and includes all nominees.
The nominee with the most votes is declared speaker and assumes the position immediately.

I will be voting YES to this amendment as it simply makes sense and adds clarity to the selection and election of the Speaker each term.

Lastly, tomorrow morning I will be formally proposing the creation of the National Arts Archives in Open Door Congress. I have the proposal drafted and will post it tomorrow morning for debate. I will keep you updated on this matter in future updates.

That is all for this week. If I can be of service to you in Congress, please dont hesitate to PM me and I will take your questions, concerns, and comments to the House with me.

The 7 tenets of the CPF

1. Uphold the equality of all active Military Units
2. Make the accounting of government funding more open and important
3. Ensure Canada is a reliable and selfless ally
4. To respect, recognize and uphold the supremacy of the mechanics of the game
5. Develop a positive political sphere
