I've been instructed to vote for Ebowed in this thread, so here I am, voting for Ebowed.

Good luck, my former running mate (briefly), in whatever office you're now running for.  Smiley

This would bother me if it weren't so predictable.

Update reading list

The idea of parodying the preceding Atlasian's postings is laughable, of course, but not for reasons one might expect.

It's an exact tie by my count, if either of you guys want to get more random people to vote for you.

In response to the looming rise in unemployment, as forecase by the Red Flag, I've taken the liberty of drawing up our very own version of the Senate's failed Hiring Incentives Act.


Here's the original Senate bill:

Quote
Hiring Incentives Act

1. Any non-manufacturing business with 200 employees or less in total shall be eligible for a $4,000 tax credit for each new individual they hire.

2. Any manufacturing business that hires a new employee shall be eligible for a $7,500 tax credit for each new individual they hire.

3. Any business that hires an individual that has been out of work for 30+ days will be exempt from paying Social Security payroll taxes on that employee.

4. The effects of this legislation shall expire one year after passage.

Since we are but a region, and not the federal government, I think it's reasonable that we lower the values of the credits somewhat. Let's say, $2,000 for a non-manafacturing business and $4,000 for a manafacturing business.

Obviously, item 3 doesn't apply on a regional basis, so we'll remove that.

So, here's the text of the modified, regional, version of the HIA:

Quote

Pacific Hiring Incentives Act


1. Any non-manufacturing business with 200 employees or less in total will be eligible for a $2,000 tax credit for each new employee they hire.

2. Any manufacturing business that hires a new employee will be eligible for a $4,000 tax credit for each new employee they hire.

3. The effects of this legislation shall expire one year after passage.

X Oakvale


If there's any objections, feel free to offer an amendment. Otherwise, I'll open this for voting in a day or so. Smiley

Oh, look! A Constitutional amendment!

Seriously though, I think it's a step in the right direction, and kills two birds with the proverbial stone - makes the Lt. Governor's position relevant, and allows us to keep our bits of the wiki in a state of repair. Smiley

Quote
Giving the Lieutenant Governor something to actually do Amendment

Whereas the Lieutenant Governor's responsibilities are currently vaguely defined and rarely carried out,

1) The Lieutenant Governor is hereby tasked with one job, and one only - to mantain articles on the Atlas Fantasy Wiki relevant to the Pacific region.

2) These articles include;

http://uselectionatlas.org/AFEWIKI/index.php/Pacific_Region
http://uselectionatlas.org/AFEWIKI/index.php/Pacific_Governor
http://uselectionatlas.org/AFEWIKI/index.php/Pacific_Lt_Governor
http://uselectionatlas.org/AFEWIKI/index.php/Pacific_Senator
http://uselectionatlas.org/AFEWIKI/index.php/Pacific_Statute
http://uselectionatlas.org/AFEWIKI/index.php/Second_Pacific_Constitution
http://uselectionatlas.org/AFEWIKI/index.php/Pacific_Elected_Officials

and others as desginated relevant by the Governor

3) When an event occurs that requires the wiki to be modified, e.g. the passing of a new bill, the election of a new official, etc, the Lieutenant Governor shall be notified and shall edit the relevant article to include the new information as soon as possible.

4) In this way, we can mantain the wiki to keep the information on the Pacific more relevant and up-to-date than much of the wiki.

As per the Pacific's constitution, the people may vote upon any amendment that has been signed by five citizens, or the Governor. As such,

X Oakvale.

Voting on this amendment will begin a day from now.
