Governor Nix, I'd like to personally thank you for propping up our lagging bill-introduction industry.

Government picking winners and losers: That's what I'm all about!

I sign:

Executive Order #11

I am officially calling for the resignations of Representatives Belgiansocialist and Simfan34. These two legislators have missed numerous votes and have made only negligible contributions to debate over the course of this legislative session - and in Simfan's case, this was enough for him to be removed from office once already.

Protocol, Governor! Why do you refer to me by an incorrect title when I have voted for the past two bills?

Now we have to wait for the third member of the leftist majority to inevitably miss their third vote.

Also, Belgiansocialist has been deported.

Thank you for the appointment, Governor.  I am honored to be allowed to serve in the Assembly, even in this interm capacity.

How fitting then that I should make my first action as a representative (besides swearing in of course) be to remind you that you cannot veto internal procedural decision of the Assembly - it's an "in-house" thing. Grin

Oh, of course, the veto bears no legal power. But the honorable Speaker left the bill on my desk, and I took the opportunity to express my displeasure with the change to Assembly rules.

Well, in that case I apologize for the miscommunication. I rather like this practice of expressing your opinion in this form. Grin

Hey Barnes!

Also, I have an announcement.

The time has finally come. We've been staving it off for a while now, but now we've come to that bridge.

We don't have any bills to introduce into our now-vacant slot 2.

I've been toying with an idea that will be both big and controversial. Still not sure whether I'll introduce it, but stay tuned.

Do we have one of those things where you wait a week and it becomes law automatically?

Article II, Section 8;

Once he or she has signed the legislation, it immediately becomes law unless otherwise stated in the legislation itself. If the Governor does not sign the successful legislation after one week, than it becomes law immediately.

Note that I will probably veto this bill rather than allowing to it become law automatically if I don't receive an estimate that I find acceptable. As this bill was passed unanimously, there isn't much that I can do (other than lobbying the more fiscally conservative members of the Assembly to change their votes), but I'd rather not sully my record with something that might be fiscally irresponsible, however much I sympathize with its goals.
