1. In order to commemorate some of the Mideast's greatest leaders, the states of the best region in Atlasia shall be renamed as follows: Illinois shall henceforth be known as Lincoln. Indiana shall henceforth be known as Debs. Kentucky shall henceforth be known as Clay. Maryland shall henceforth be known as Marshall. Michigan shall henceforth be known as Ford. Missouri shall henceforth be known as Truman. Ohio shall henceforth be known as Taft. Virginia shall henceforth be known as Jefferson. West Virginia shall henceforth be known as Byrd. Wisconsin shall henceforth be known as La Follette.

I have a slight issue with this - Mainly, none of these folks exist in Atlasia - to Atlasians, they're all foreign.

However, if I'm outnumbered by a veto-proof majority, all I request is that Indiana be changed to Lugar, even Bayh if it comes down to it. But Debs? Please no.

I'm opposed to this.  It causes confusion.

As long as Ohio can be changed from Taft to Johnson (Cleveland Mayor Tom Johnson).  I think speak for most Ohioans when I say that I am strongly opposed to calling our state Taft.  That name is pretty much dead to the state after Bob Taft's tenure.

I thought the idea of Atlasia was that it was a continuation/reboot/improvement of the United States since 2004?

While I'd rather name the states after leaders that have passed on, I would be cool with naming Indiana Lugar if you are willing to approve the bill.

What about Grant or Sherman? For Grant, I am thinking more of his Civil War service then his 2 terms as President.

I don't think either could be called "great leaders."  Great generals to be sure, but not great political leaders.

What exactly is it that this bill does?  Is it legally changing the names?

But if we're legally changing the name, that would have to be a constitutional amendment, and it may even conflict with federal law.

Like I said, only the Midwest gets to have different state names. For us to try and copy that would look asinine, to be honest.

The Midwest already did it with just a regular law, why cant't we.

I don't see the problem with the Mideast trying something similar but different.

It's confusing and superfluous.

Voting is now closed.  The AYEs are 2, and the NAYs are 2, with 1 not voting.  The AYEs not having a majority, the bill has failed.
