Hey there eAmericans
The 65th eUS Congress has just concluded her second week, so it looks like we have some catch up to do!
Going to start with the 65ths Leadership team, this month's leadership can also be found here on the eUS forums.
Evry: Speaker of the House
Paul Proteus: Deputy Speaker
Fawkie: Congressional Whip
So now that's out of the way, in the name of transparency, let's move on to Congressional proceedings shall we~
After being elected, and properly signing in (you can view the congressional roster here) our newly elected congress peeps went on to elect a speaker the results of which are shown above. Next on the agenda was a budget. Some months it takes quite a while for this seemingly simple task to be completed, but the 65th managed to pass May's Budget on May 8th with a vote of 19-0-2. Congress has also discussed future budget planning in order to work towards cutting the monthly deficit and have conducted an experiment with the VAT, raising it from 5% to 7%, the results of which will be made clear shortly.
Congress has also unanimously passed a renewal of the eROC NAP and has worked with the executive to pass numerous MPPs in the past two weeks.
In other Congressional happenings, Congressman Clint Carmel has looked into the existence of the Congressional Citizens Award and Congressman Hale26 began discussion on the possibility of renting out orgs.
So, that's a wrap for today.. Please leave a comment with what you, the American citizenry, want the next Congress to discuss and work to ratify.
Remember to keep an eye out on the Public Congressional Proceedings sub-forum to keep yourself best informed on Congressional happenings, and sub to this paper.
From Congress, With Love
