Governor, a budget proposal will be required [in accordance with the NE constitution] next month.  Just some heads up.

Quote
9. The Governor is obligated to present the Legislative Assembly a budget every January, if he or she is in office at that time. The budget of all government activities is to be voted on by the Assembly in the same January. The Governor is obligated to ensure that the budget does not provide for any deficits excepting times of emergency or war, a condition the Legislative Assembly must successfully endorse.

It is not to be forwarded to the people (AKA I'm killing it).

My opposition comes from the punishments given to bullying. While some kids are just jerks, others come from tough backgrounds and may need help just as their victims do. Many come from poor families, and a monetary fine for the child's actions is absolutely harmful.

Governor, RFK has missed 3 consecutive votes ["The Incredibly Important Act", "The Dihydrogen Monoxide Ban Act", and "The Northeastern Anti-Bully Initiative Act of 2011".]


Quote
8. Vacancies in the Legislative Assembly shall be filled in a manner specified by Law, and until such determination is made, by Gubernatorial appointment. Vacancies occur upon resignation, recall, impeachment, failure to swear in within one week of the legislative session’s opening, failure to vote on three consecutive pieces of legislation without publicly declaring absence, or failure to participate in Assembly debate for one month.

When tied legislation is referred by the Governor, the appropriate election administrator shall open the voting booth on the nearest Friday at 12:00:00am EST and shall close said both the following Sunday at 11:59:59pm EST. The referendum question is: “Shall [name of law, followed by text] be made law?”. Every citizen will be given the opportunity to vote YES for passage and NO for failure during this time. Abstentions will not affect the results. Referred legislation shall automatically become law if voted in favor by the people.

The general election isn't until February.  A voting booth for this legislation would open this Friday.

It may also be a good day to open the booth for the special election, but since no one has declared their candidacy yet, it could be pushed back next Friday, too.

Also Governor, I thought it might be a good idea to hold off on the tax bill and just veto it, instead of forwarding it for a vote.  Napoleon wants to scrap it if he's elected governor, and it would probably be a better idea to write up a more specific tax plan that we could include in the budget when it comes to the Assembly, which still needs to be written.  Just a suggestion, of course.
