Heh. Turns out Ben needs to second the nomination.

I have seconded it, in multiple threads, I believe.

I second Inks's nomination, and urge that he be confirmed ASAP.

The Business Administration Investment Legislation in Order to Undermine Turmoil (BAILOUT) Act of 2008:

Section 1:  The regional government of the Mideast shall set aside certain funds not to exceed 3% of the Mideastern budget, to be spent at the discretion of the Governor with oversight by the Speaker of the legislature, for the purchase of "toxic" mortgages from investment bankers.  The government reserves the right to alter the terms of mortgages in a reasonable manner in order to make a profit for taxpayers more likely.

Section 2:  Executive compensation, including salaries, bonuses, and stock options, shall not exceed 120 times the compensation package of the lowest-paid employee.  Any pay past that level will be subject to 75% taxation.

Section 3:  Banks registered in the Mideast cannot carry out both banking and investment functions.  This section shall be called the "Restore Glass-Steagall Provision"

Section 4:  The Mideast shall cooperate with any bailout plan passed by the federal government, but will pursue its own recovery plans regardless of the actions of the Atlasian government.
__________________________________________________________________________

Introduced as requested by Governor Mikado.  72 hours for discussion and revision will be allowed before a 24 hour voting period.  I am considering supporting the removal of section three unless barring the Governor giving a good reason for it's inclusion.   I feel allowing banks to invest can only strengthen the economy of the region.  Also only 36 more hours until I call for an up or down vote on Inks' nomination unless someone calls for an immediate one.

I agree, I won't vote in favor unless Section 3 is eliminated.

I will now call for a vote on the confirmation of Inks as Mideast Judge

___________________________________________________________________________

Aye

___________________________________________________________________________

On the matter of the Governor's bailout proposal I have come up with the final draft and would like everyones opinion on it.  By the way I also altered section two to 50%, I felt 75% was an outrageous amount:

The Business Administration Investment Legislation in Order to Undermine Turmoil (BAILOUT) Act of 2008:

Section 1:  The regional government of the Mideast shall set aside certain funds not to exceed 3% of the Mideastern budget, to be spent at the discretion of the Governor with oversight by the Speaker of the legislature, for the purchase of "toxic" mortgages from investment bankers.  The government reserves the right to alter the terms of mortgages in a reasonable manner in order to make a profit for taxpayers more likely.

Does the regional government even have that power [qm]. Even if it did, would it really be a good idea to use it [qm].

In the next 2 weeks, I won't be online too much. I might pop in from time to time to check on everything, but I'm not sure how often I'll manage.

For the bailout proposal of the Mideast....if possible...I'll vote AYE in advance. Smiley

If there are no more votes within the next few hours I plan to declare this bill passed.

The measure is passed by a 2-1 margin (So long as no one objects to Franzl's early voting.  If anyone does object let me know and if your objection is sound I will send it to the Lt. Governor for the tie breaking vote.)

The measure passes.  Does anyone have any other measures they would like to bring up?  I am still working on my crime bill.

I was thinking of a non-binding resolution expressing the Mideast's support for maintaining the current structure of the Atlasian government.  With challenges from one side with Lewis' proposal for essentially an Altasian Commune, and challenges from the other with the RPP's intense decentralization, do you guys feel it necessary for the Mideast to proclaim its support of the status quo?

Exactly. Ask Peter and MasterJedi.  They would be strong appointments I think.  At least those are my recommendations.
