SCI Release for January 2015

Release

In accordance with Disclosure of SCI Distributions Act, this thread served as the release of required information for this month.


eUS Constitution, Code, and Congressional Laws

Discussion

This discussion was a split off from the SCI Disclosure related to misunderstandings in the differences between the Constitution, Code, and Laws. It has since died out, but was useful to inform some newer congressmen.


Private Congressional Proceedings

Aid money for the Russian wars was approved and is being put to use. Additionally, a tax discussion took place. It remained in private Congress due to the inclusion of classified information that was pertinent to the discussion (i.e., Reserve values, spending figures from last month, etc.) but the discussion has since ended without a resulting proposal. Additional discussion took place regarding various strategic matters as they arose.


That's a wrap for now. Expect more updates from the Speaker's office as the term develops.
