I hope that as time goes on, not only will Atlasia's events be significantly different from the US', but that other countries' behavior may be significantly different due to Atlasian policy.

By the way, do we have troops in Iraq and Afghanistan?

The Senate has never passed a declaration of war against either country, so the answer would be no.

We inherited all laws up to 2004 I thought, so wouldn't those resolutions have been passed?

And I agree that the 30th is by far the best Senate ever. I could vote for any of them, honestly. Awesome group of Senators.

I'm wondering how you came up with regional population numbers, because it isn't based on the real figures.

It is based on the populations of the regions as a proportion of the whole, which is derived from the US population total.

Well... 2 of the 4 most populous states are in the Southeast, and 4 of the top 10. Meanwhile the Midwest has nothing. You should look into updating that.

Most populous states does not have anything to do with total regional populations. The populations of the regions, as outlined by the SoFA are:

Mideast, Midwest = 25 (~18%)
Pacific, Northeast = 35 (~25%)
Southeast = 19 (~14%)

That is what the numbers are based on. I would agree that there are a number of ways I can do these numbers to make some regions bigger or smaller. This is how I chose to do it so as to more accurately represent Atlasia, rather than the US.

Okay that makes much more sense. thanks for clearing that up.

The car rebate bill would have a couple additional votes if the Senate didn't lose it's mind and completely ruin it with outrageous requirements.

Just chalk it up as a victim of the Senate's constant need to compromise.

Fortunately we got a better bill courtesy of Tmth and Hamilton

First of all, you are not a Senator, so you better learn your limits.

Secondly, no, the changes made the variety of purchasable cars very narrow and almost entirely foreign. The point was to get people to buy cars, not turn it into a green initiative.

I can work with Senators however I choose. Go yell at PiT or Purple State or Xahar. They frequently post in the Senate and also worked on legislation this session. Leave me alone. Just because all evidence shows the opposite of your position on the auto rebate bill doesn't give you a right to continue on this tirade.

Apparently it is irrelevant that Lief just had the Treasury prevent a bank's collapse with $30 billion.

Anyone there?!

The Senate doesn't care about the economy. They care about whether kids can get porno four years earlier.

You made an error. You said the Pacific is the home of the largest party in Atlasia. The largest party in Atlasia only has like 3 members in the Pacific. You might want to look into correcting that.

bgwah is quite correct on the definition of reactionary.  He was also right in labeling himself a conservative on the issue of keeping regions. 

A reactionary goes beyond this.  Again, he was correct when he said he would be reactionary if he wanted to reestablish regions once they had been moved.

A reactionary is someone VEHEMENTLY opposed to progress or change, often seeking to revert to a previous state.

Don't get all smug and cute with these dumb political labels.  It's not worth fighting over.

Exactly. I'd say bringing back districts would be a reactionary position.

Northeast
While passing substantive reforms for regional governance, the Northeast's Assembly seems to have become bogged down recently in substance-less discussion and debates over protocol. The Office of the GM recommends a revision of the legislature's SOAP to both ensure clarity and efficiency.

Why ? The protocol exists and is very clear, we just need to apply it and are just waiting for an official (Lt Gov or Speaker) to do. Revising (again) the SOAP will be a waste of time for real legislation.

I've also got legislation in waiting to deal with the issue of green jobs.

I noticed that. Just trying to move things along.

And while the SOAP itself may be fine, the Assembly seems to very often focused on questions about protocol. Perhaps clearer guidelines, or more efficient ones, would work better. Just putting it out there based on my own observations.

Yeah, but we don't need to be told that. It's much preferred if you can give us some kind of news or data to work with. We know about the structural issues because they fall under our jurisdiction. The data is under yours and it would be appreciated.

ALSO: A lot of stuff geared towards the environment, most importantly the green jobs initiative and my sustainable forestry legislation, but also the cape wind resolution.
