Follow-up to Previous Congressional Activity
The 103rd Congress Gets Started
After the initial Sign-In was completed, campaigning for Speaker of the House led to the Nominations (currently in progress). At press time, Wooky Jack has accepted nomination; Pfeiffer has the needed five nominations but has not yet accepted; Tenshibo and Arrden have nominations but not the five required.
A little known early-term action is that the Congressional Librarian moves all of the previous month's forum activity to an Archive section.
The original post which shows the Budget adopted just weeks ago, in mid-June, asks for reports from line holders and proposes that "we should go ahead with Budget talks and can revisit the matter later in the month if necessary, or collect the month of changing data to consider for the August Budget."
Rather than discuss the merits of the Budget itself, Congress debated whether or not to discuss it.
Subsidies for Holding Companies
President Yui had brought this up in the PDBs and in other talks about the new Economy, and has now brought it to Congress as a Discussion topic. The idea is, basically, that the eUS should seek to both attract foreign and reward domestic players for setting up Holding Companies in the eUS.
Starting just two days before Admins' implementation of Holding Companies, Congress has been unable to clearly define parameters of a program or its funding.
