Submitted three bills revising the three tax bills. Hopefully Scott moves them ahead of any other bills since these requires the GM. I'll suspend the rules once they're on the floor to get a quick up or down vote to speed up the budget process.

If it helps the workers I am open to lowering the carbon tax a little as long as we have enough revenue to pay for infrastructure investment, plastic clean up and science.

My goal is to help the workers and that is what matters.

If you want to aid the workers, you should find some other revenue than reducing the carbon tax. Ultimately global warming doesn't help the working people of Fremont.

This amendment has passed with no objection. Now it's time to get the GM.

May the FM please give a clear explanation for why nothing is being spent on the Medicaid Expansion Act?

This is still waiting for the GM but there's a major backlog atm. Patience is virtue.

I'm not being impatient at all. Rather, I'm bumping them so that we can find the threads.

Well anyway, once Truman costs the Budget I'll introduce my amendment. I don't want to cut too much or too little, after all.

Is it something that'd require the GM? I don't like bugging the GM department too often. There's a few things that need to be ironed out that I'm unsure why they weren't in the previous year surplus.

Well, I would like to know the full figures for the current version of the budget before amending it.
I don't want to cut taxes too much, otherwise we won't have any money for all the dams and roads and airports and railways and subways and metros and buses and irrigation schemes and trams and so on that I want to build. Particularly the Dams.

I've been intending to have the surplus at around $100 billion or so (and spend about at least a fourth or so of it per year) to ensure we don't run a deficit in the next few years and the budgetary process isn't as dragged out next year.

Maybe can we table this bill or something until the GM's office gets its act together?
Given they've had almost 4 months to cost this.

More like 2 months but no, this bill cannot be tabled. If you and others want, we could increase the number of slots on the floor though.

Maybe you can take this time to work on numbers to fund basic government functions like education and pensions, something every regional budget since the beginning of this game has done. Months later, this budget continues to be completely unrealistic.

Actually quite a good point, thank you Mr. Governor.
Mr. FM, it does seem like this budget is short on details on reflection. As Governor TM says, no funds are enumerated for Education, Pensions, bureaucracy, and a good many more vital functions of regional governments.

What's the status of this?

Right now I'm looking through older budgets passed by other regions that we can use as a template.  This page provides some examples.
