Executive Order Creating the DoFA Review Committee

Whereas, the system of election laws and bureaucracy is sprawling and confusing, often leading to confusion and conflict around elections, and

Whereas, this election simulation game functions best when the elections system is understood and works properly,

Be it therefore resolved, that I hereby commission a Department of Forum Affairs Review Committee, made up of the Secretary of Federal Elections, the Registrar General, the deputy Secretary of Forum Affairs and a member of the Senate internally elected.

Be it further resolved, that the committee is instructed to look at all aspects of reform to this department, including all applicable laws and constitutional provisions, and report back within one month on ways to clarify, streamline and simplify the process.

Signed,
~PS



I would also like to take this opportunity to announce that, given the recent (and perennial) confusion come election time, deputy Secretary of Forum Affairs Teddy has crafted this Election Administrator Guidebook to cut down on future mishaps or mistakes. This is yet another piece in my administration's efforts to improve the DoFA and make elections increasingly accessible to Atlasians.

Executive Action

By the power vested in me, I hereby nominate the following individuals for their respective positions for confirmation by the Senate:

Teddy, as Secretary of Federal Elections.

Afleitch, as Secretary of Internal Affairs.

Gustaf, as Moderator General.

Signed,
~PS



With two months past and two months remaining in my term, I have decided that a Cabinet shakeup is in order to bring new life to some posts and to reward strong levels of activity and competence.

My SoFE-designate Teddy has been a vital piece of the Department of Forum Affairs during my term. While he has made mistakes, Teddy has also shown a remarkable ability to learn quickly and move forward. I also look forward to Teddy's contributions on the newly formed DoFA Review Committee, which will allow him to continue his work on simplifying and streamlining our elections system.

My SoIA-designate Afleitch has a great deal of experience in this game over the years and has proven himself to be a powerful voice in domestic policy matters. He will bring new life to this position by issuing reports that complement GM stories and implement Senate legislation and a productive and efficient way.

And my appointee for Moderator General, Gustaf, will be an important part of our DoFA system, ensuring that the Registrar General can keep an accurate and complete voters list. I thank him for his willingness to take on this extra role.

Thank you.

Question though Mr President,

The problem with our significant unemployment rate is that since there has been one stimulus package... what's to say that a second one will stem the bleeding?

My suggestion, if I may be so bold, is to examine which areas of the economy are sliding, and then direct specialised support, and make sure that that involves long-term viability. For example what about tax-credits that actually rewards businesses that can take on extra employees? Many business can actually afford to bring-on people, but they're hesitant. Giving them money doesn't fix anything, but giving them money IF they actually do something, and stick to it, makes sense to me.

You actually want to cure the patient rather than tending to the symptoms surely?

I'm largely reassured by the knowledge that the increase in unemployment is largely a result of a change in the way the number is calculated.

As soon as the Senate confirms my nominee for Secretary of Internal Affairs, I hope to have a report issued by Afleitch that will investigate what must be done to return us to a more sustainable level of employment.

In the meantime, I don't think it is inappropriate to stem panic and head off additional losses by supporting a targeted stimulus focused on saving current jobs.

I do appreciate your thoughts and welcome you back to the game. It is always nice to see veterans return and contribute once again. Smiley

It would be worth investigating the 'returns' of the stimulus. It is possible, indeed probable that we pumped money into important struggling industries, but industries which do not employ significant numbers of people. Unless public subsidy is sustained, industries in receipt of assistance are not willing to employ new workers (and it would cost them money to lay off workers too) should that assistance cease.

I would agree that conditional tax credits coupled with SEDZ's etc are better ways to incentivise business to generate employment. However, while increasing employment is a long term goal that in itself will not automatically decrease unemployment as the cause of unemployment can be due to a variety of economic, social and health related factors. That is worth investigating.

Obviously you cannot fix all the reasons why people are unemployed, . But basically, my personal view is doing what you can in the most effective way possible.
I think you'll do a great job.

The Federal Flood Response Review Resolution

1. It is the sense of the Senate, that the Secretary of Internal Affairs, the Game Moderator, all other responsible department secretaries investigate and report on the current condition and state of flood response strategies and potential problems with them, the potentially most devastating flooding that could occur, where these high risk areas are and what are there causes (hurricanes, heavy rains, shifting river patterns, environmental shifts etc), and finally recommendations to the senate on what measures to take to mitigate these disasters and improve response in the future.

2. Recognizing the scope of the request, the Senate hereby sets a deadline of September 30, 2010 for the completion of the report.

Executive Action

Game Moderator Duty Clarification Act

Whereas, confusion exists as to the exact nature of events in Atlasia as they relate to events in the real word, and

Whereas, it is impossible for even a reasonably active Game Moderator to provide story lines for most events that occur in the real world;

Therefore be it resolved that:

1. F.L. 16-1: GM Act and F.L. 31-4: Game Moderator Replacement Act are hereby repealed.

2. The following categories of real world events be deemed Atlasian events as though dictated by the GM: natural disasters, scientific discoveries, foreign events.

3. A real world event shall not be considered to have occurred in Atlasia if it is a result of other real world events that did not occur in Atlasia or if the GM has expressly stated that such an event did not occur.[/quote]

I sign,
~PS

I thank the Senate for passing this piece of my GM and DoEA reform agenda. Hopefully this will help both offices function more effectively in the future.

I'd just like to apologize for my lack of action today and yesterday. My grandfather was hospitalized yesterday quite suddenly. I've just been exhausted and yesterday was tending entirely to him.

I'll get back on top of things very soon. Working on legislation to further expand access to credit and further stimulate the economy.

Thanks everyone.
