To do a damn fine job?

Just a friendly reminder to the Assembly. Elections will be coming up next month, I know this just started, but all of those who are interested in staying past next month should make sure to declare.

Well, we have until Friday 9, right ?

That is correct.

BTW, line of sucsession goes Governor, Lt. Governor, CJO. As Rep. Hamilton stated, there is no need to change it. In my entire time here in the Northeast, the only time that its gone far down to CJO was after Fezzy resigned as Governor, and Rin resigned as Lt. Governor.

If the size of the assembly were to add 2 additional members by the time of the election, they would be elected to it if they stated that they are accepting write in votes. I could easily just appoint the two of them if they are still interested. They just need to let me know.

Mr. Speaker

I hear by resign my office as Northeastern Representative, effective immediately. Due to my lack of interest in the office, combined with my attentions largely focusing on outside interests, mostly schooling this was an easy decision for me to make.

Good and Good Luck in the days ahead.

Rocky

I'm very sad to see you leaving the Assembly Conor, we will miss you. With that in mind, I plan on announcing someone to take the seat first thing Monday morning. Please contact me if you are intersted, those who have already contacted me dont worry, I have your names already.

Winston Disraeli replaced Rocky. 

I don't think Hamilton has even been removed from the Assembly yet.  He's made no formal resignation and hasn't been convicted of a crime - or even brought up on any charges, yet.  Governor Andrew CT certainly hasn't named any replacement on his office thread.

I havent heard anything yet on his resignation, or anything yet. Has his time run out in this place yet?

Speakership is not supposed to be a partisan position...


Bullsh**t.

None of this. This type of language is not to be used in this Assembly.

There will be order in the Assembly. This is a first, and final order.  If Representative does not come to order, I will presue this further with the rest of the Assembly, and the CJO.

Yes, can we please keep this to business for right now. I'd like to get a Speaker elected, so that we can call for a Holiday Recess for the region.

I have a duel problem. One is that I am supposed to have a gland that tells me when I'm full, but it doesnt. The other is I have a very slow motabalisim. I work out often, and yet still have a problem losing weight, even though I only have an intake of roughly 1200-1600 calories a day. So, is what being said here is that even though I'm a hard worker, I can be denied work because of my weight?

Mr. Speaker,

Today, I have been offered an acting job that will send me to New York for five months. I will still be able to keep up with the forum, but during that time, I will be working long and unpredictable hours which will completely effect any kind of service I could bring.

Regrettably, I have enjoyed this service, but I must resign. I want to thank the members of the Assembly for making me feel at home and for helping me get back in the swing of things. I will be back soon.

Adios for now, folks.


This, of course makes me very sad. You have done a terrific service for the region, and I thank you for all you have done. It will be tough to find someone to fill your shoes, that is for sure.

 I wish you the best of luck!

Sorry to barge in, but I just want to say I'm sorry for not picking a replacement yet. In my opinion, I have two good candidates who are looking for the position, and it's a little difficult to decide which one to choose. I name the replacement tomorrow.

We have no express power to do so.  The Joe Wilson Act takes any power we may have had in that area away from us.

Ok, Mr. Speaker, to clarify:

So they cannot post, but cannot be really removed from office too?

That means constant absentions?

With one vacancy, which is to fill, and permanently absent 2 Representatives, who are technically in office, we have 5 members to vote?

Well, I guess they could be removed automatically if they do not vote on 3 consecutive bills.  But both Libertas and Hamilton voted on the matter currently on the floor (as did Sewer Socialist).  I SAW Hamilton's Nay vote the amendment before it was erroneously deleted. 

Libertas and Hamilton are eligible to vote if they can vote.  If they do not vote, they will be treated as abstaining.  That should only matter if we're voting on a constitutional amendment.  Otherwise, their non-votes shouldn't matter.

As per past practice, none of Hamilton on Libertas' bills will be brought to the floor while they are under suspension.

I dont know if it helps, but I too saw Hamiltons vote, as well as Sewers abstain.

Hamilton has been banned. You can commence to get rid of him now if that doesn't automatically happen.

How long is he banned for?

Damn.. okay.. I gotta figure out what to do. I know that he wanted to resign and get GJ into his seat, but not sure if he did that or not. If he didnt, we will have to wait to get an appointment in.

(i.e., obese people can face higher health insurance costs).

Huh, why ? Huh

Because people who are significantly overweight face far more health complications (diabetes, heart disease) than people who do not?

While few people want to be obese, it is still a lifestyle that some people choose through inaction. It is not something that is fated—people CAN lose weight if they want to. That's not to say it's easy—indeed, for most overweight people, they face issues with metabolism that likely make it harder than most to maintain healthy weights. But there are plenty of options for obese people to get their condition under control, from lifestyle changes to surgery.

In my mind, obesity is somewhat on par with smoking. Neither is cause for discrimination, but both inflict significant related health care costs on the nation as a whole.

My love for you level went down a little bit. But than I saw your sig, and it went up significantly.

Alright, out of the way everyone. Big Daddy is barging his way into the Assembly!

I would like to take this time to present to you, something horrible, but delicious at the same time. Yes, its the budget. I've based my numbers off of those GM Purple State had announced earlier. Also, I would like to note that I have not used of our funds, I have put some aside for a rainy day fund, since we can not be sure how the next year is going to turn out. I would also like to ask that you not pay too much attention to the "last year" figures, as those are from the last budget put forward, which I presented sometime in late 2007 to early 2008. Without further babling, here is the new budget.

2010-2011 Northeast Budget

State Populations: 49

Connecticut (1)
Delaware (1)
Maine (6) - 
Massachusetts (6)
New Jersey (6)
New Hampshire (3)
New York (11)
Pennsylvania ( 8 )
Rhode Island (4)
Vermont (3)



Northeast Budget:

State                                      Revenue (In Millions)
Connecticut                            $28,495    ($15,918) -2
Delaware                               $6,950      ($15,918) No Change
Maine                                     $8,642      ($92,174) +5
Massachusetts                       $31,285    ($92,174) +3
New Jersey                             $45,785    ($92,174) +1
New Hampshire                      $17,890    ($47,754) No Change
New York                                $78,801    ($175,098) +6
Pennsylvania                          $62,375    ($127,344) +2
Rhode Island                          $7,400      ($63,672) +3
Vermont                                 $15,482     ($47,772) No Change

TOTAL                          $303,105 last year   $769,998 Projected

Expenditures (In Millions)

Law Enforcment/Military             $96.0    $190,500
Education                                   $66.5    $128,650
Health Care                                $56.4    $59,900
Local Government                      $28.00   $145,234
Environment                               $15.8    $105,737
Infrastructure                             $9.8     $43,825
 
TOTAL                                       $278.70    $673,846

Remaining                                       $96,152


Well, there it is. I know it looks cruel and all, but we had to get it all done. I would like to thank frm Lt. Governor Barnes, and Northeast Rep. Whacky Hack for helping to review this a little bit before it came forward.

Why so much ? Huh

Because this has to fund every City Officers, County Sheriffs, State Police, and National Guards for the largest region in Atlasia.

Does that money go to fire departments as well?

Yes and no.  They partially fund volunteer fire departments (such as newer equipment if requested, and some building costs), but most volunteer departments depend on funds from local government, and contributions. Regular local run employee departments are funded in this as well. I forgot to mention that.

Just letting you guys know, if you have any questions for me on the budget, I'll be watching the discussion. You can also PM me.

As will I. I also would like to thank the GM for lending his time for any discussions on the budget.

First, I would like to say that yes, the "Rainy Day Fund" monies can be placed into other programs if it was wanted. That is one of the reasons that I made sure that the money was there, that way if it was needed somewhere else, I didnt have to take money from something else for it.

Also, this is a realistic budget. The problem is that the last budget created and presented was over two years ago in January or February of 2007. It was difficult to try and create this knowing that the GM reported we had a deficit, but not seeing it reflected on our prior budget.
