Aye.

I'll just say, I'm going to be a little pretty dang ticked off if this thing fails since only a few senators offered their own opinions/suggestions when this thing has been on the floor for almost a month and because I had said I'd like a final vote if no one expressed any further concerns with the legislation -- which no one did.

I posted this last night but for some reason it didn't go through. Stupid convention is slowing the site down and in turn messing up my connection. Even late in the morning the site still acts up which might just be the residual impact on my end of the early slowness caused by the convention at 10-Midnight. Whenver the site fails to load because because of traffic or whatever causes that "Website can't be found" crap, it causes problems on my computer.

Quote from: Final Text
A BILL

To promote and incentivize job growth in the Republic of Atlasia.

Be it enacted by the Senate of the Republic of Atlasia assembled.

AYE


The bill has not been updated on the first post with the amendment passed for section 3.

That is good, because if had been updated, it meant that someone had hacked my account. I usually leave the OP as introduced and then post "Current Texts" every so many pages, then a final text at the start of the vote (unless of course something weird happens like last night). It is good way to flush out Senators who don't pay attention.
