The Labor Rights Acts is finally done. Our long national nightmare is over. Tongue Wink


I put both the Game Moderation Reform Amendment and the Military Retirement Reform Amendment to final vote. These are big and important changes, yet they have garnered so little interest, and that is the best way to check for mistakes, is to have 100 eyes on them. Both of which are very important and deserve all the attention possible.

I have contacted all the Senators expressing my deep anger at the lack of activity on the part of many Senators, including people we have come to expect far better from. This cannot be allowed to continue and I urge constituents to start demanding better, especially from those Senators who we have come to expect more from (glances towards the North and West symbolically Wink)

We will now take questions from the Press and Public.

This bills is now up for a final vote, so contact your Senators and urge them to vote which ever which way you want them too. I would hope most want it to pass, but you never can tell.


I have been trying to experiement with these townhalls and pressers in varying situations in the hope of creating some interest amongst the public in the debates on big bills. I figured that bill as a important as this would be topping the charts in interest, but I guess not. Without an active and engaged citizenry, and press for that matter, there will be no game.

Mr. Attorney General,

The Labor Rights Act has been signed into law by the President, after a presidential redraft was rejected by the Senate. The orignal vote can be thrown through here.

Senator NC Yankee,
Senate President Pro-Tempore.

I may be wrong, but wouldn't $800 billion "unbalance" the budget?

That is why is says $800 million, not billion. Tongue

If the numbers are too much or too low then lets hammer them out and get this done. Tongue

Mr. President

The Senate has unfortunately voted down your redraft of the Labor Rights Act and the sponsor has elected to send it back you as is.

Senate President Pro-Tempore.

Okay, I guess I can do this one, since it isn't the starting empaneling but instead is a replacement and the "Get It Over With Resolution" doesn't apply to these.


So Senators have 48 hour to declare for Barnes' committee spot(s) (It was just judiciary right?).

Quote
4.Whensoever the Senate shall pass a bill and present it to the President, he shall have the option to redraft the bill and return it to the Senate in redrafted form. The President shall have this option once with each particular bill presented to him. The original sponsor of the bill, as so defined in Senate rules, shall either file a motion to approve the President’s redraft by a simple majority vote, and return it to the President for his signature or veto, or withdraw the bill from the Senate. If the Senate approves the President's redraft by a simple majority vote, the redrafted bill shall be returned to the President for his signature or veto. If the Senate rejects the President's redraft, the original sponsor shall either file a motion to send the original draft of the bill back to the President for his signature or veto, or shall direct the Senate to resume debate on the bill as presented to the President.


Stage 2: Resume Debate or Send it Back to the President for Signature or Veto.
You must chose sponsor, but chose wisely. lol Indiana Jones joke ftw Tongue

Sailor Moon versus the puppies, who paid for this show? Tongue


Well I suppose it is kind of like how some think the solution for lazy, inaudacious VPs is throw him into a lot of SEnators who are also likewise lacking in audacity and think that will fix a problem.

God, I am so glad I can be on after midnight again. Now if only I didn't have to use Windows Seven to do it. Wink
