626  Atlas Fantasy Elections / Regional Governments / Re: IDS 1: Toll Road Abolishment Act (Debating) on: May 26, 2014, 01:48:55 am
I don't like the idea of this bill. Toll roads seem like a really good idea to me (even if I have bad experiences having to go through them). They do a really good job of charging most to those who both use the services most and can best afford them. From my experiences you never HAVE to take a toll road, what you end up paying for is nothing more than a convenience cost. Plus, toll roads are almost always better maintained than normal roads and the money goes (I think) to fund our infrastructure and transportation budgets, which are now in dire straits because of recent cuts.

Sure, if you like. Legislators have 48 hours to vote for a candidate for the office of speaker. You are free to change your vote until the 48 hours have passed or all legislators have voted.

Speaker:
[] Dereich
[] Write-in

Hi, sorry. The one question I have before I'm ready to bring this to a vote is what happens with employees at private prisons. Would they be immediately be integrated as public employees? Fired? At very least, I think they would need some kind of retraining to deal with any differences in how private and public prisons might be operated. Maybe some kind of time delay before nationalization would be appropriate?
629  Atlas Fantasy Elections / Regional Governments / Re: The Imperial Dominion of the South's Legislature on: May 23, 2014, 05:49:41 pm
Ok then, for now I'll be continuing on as speaker.

With four ayes and one legislator not voting this bill passes the legislature of the Imperial Dominion of the South and is sent to the Emperor for signature or veto.
633  Atlas Fantasy Elections / Regional Governments / Re: IDS 1:Lowering Transportation Taxes for Everyone Act (Debating) on: May 22, 2014, 10:03:25 pm
I really don't like the idea of reducing taxes with unspecified cuts, but as summer is when gas prices are highest and relief would be most opportune I guess I end up saying AYE.

Kingston but only because he is an appropriator, even if he was among the worst Republicans had on the committee.

I quite agree. Legislators have 48 hours to vote aye, nay or to abstain.

Because we're starting a new legislative session, the time has come for choosing a speaker. Does anyone want to run for the office of speaker?

I'm going to be completely original and say McKinley/Roosevelt.

Well, the BJP is at 273, technically capable of forming a government without the NDA. Really an astounding win.
642  Atlas Fantasy Elections / Regional Governments / Re: IDS 2: Pentagram Privitization Act (Debating) on: May 15, 2014, 08:54:01 am

Maxwell, do you have any ideas on how you'd want to put the budget back in balance?
645  Atlas Fantasy Elections / Regional Governments / Re: IDS 2: Pentagram Privitization Act (Debating) on: May 09, 2014, 10:52:24 pm
This isn't forgotten, we should have a valuation of the building and potential budgetary implications soon.
646  Atlas Fantasy Elections / Regional Governments / Re: IDS 2: Pentagram Privitization Act (Debating) on: May 05, 2014, 12:48:05 am
Anything else? One thing I'd be curious about is how much we'd make from privatizing this. Even if we had a GM doing cost and revenue estimates, our Pentagram is such a unique occurrence I don't know how they would estimate it.
647  Atlas Fantasy Elections / Regional Governments / Re: IDS 1:Lowering Transportation Taxes for Everyone Act (Debating) on: May 03, 2014, 11:49:57 pm
Eww, do we use the metric system? I hadn't actually noticed that before.
648  Atlas Fantasy Elections / Regional Governments / Re: IDS 2: Pentagram Privitization Act (Debating) on: May 03, 2014, 11:48:26 pm
It seems kinda hard to amend; either you think the state should have a hand in running the Pentagram or you don't; I don't see much room for compromise here. Maybe some kind of public-private partnership? How would that work?
649  Atlas Fantasy Elections / Regional Governments / Re: IDS 2: Pentagram Privitization Act (Debating) on: May 01, 2014, 11:09:12 pm
WTF is the Pentagram?

The Pentagram is a symbol of the willful spirit and independent thought of the best region in Atlasia. We're really into the symbols of our independence.
