*out of character* Actually, Sam has to do his little test thingy to see how the NRCs will vote (remember, we four/five, or however many of us real people there are, are not the only congress-people). So, technically it has not passed 'til Sam declares what the votes were for the NRCs. *back in character*

Well I stand corrected once again. Rolling Eyes Smile

Alright we will see, I sure hope they have sense enough to vote yes.

I'll get on working at it!

Anyways, I had a bill, but I guess it can wait.

We first agreed to use this:
I. (fair-ish, but the election will be decided by much more of a random element)
Christopher (Montana) = 1 Representative and 1-2 Senator(s)
Sky Opera (Texas) = 2 Representative(s) and 1 Senator
Jon David (Texas) = 2 Representative(s) and 1 Senator
Sam (Ohio) = 1 Representative and 1-2 Senator(s)
Heather (Cali) = 1 Representative and 1-2 Senator(s)

So:
4 ayes currently

NRCs:
21 Texas Republicans
9 Texas Democrats
12 Ohio Republicans
5 Ohio Democrats
19 Californian Republicans
33 Californian Democrats

Total of 99 NRCs.

Random Number of Congressmen Present At Vote: all, to simplify

Factor in recent massacre.

20 Texas Republicans vote aye
4 Texas Democrats vote aye
11 Ohio Republicans vote aye
2 Ohio Democrats vote aye
16 Californian Republicans vote aye
6 Californian Democrats vote aye

59 ayes. Considering it was a voice vote, it should have passed.

(all other states nonexistent? Hmm.)

Well, I declare that it passes. Other controversial bills may require calculation, some not.

So the bill is passed due to factors:
1. Recent massacre factored in.
2. Republican and conservative control of Congress
3. Voice vote over non-controversial bill, instead of a stricter roll call vote or standing vote.

Glad to see that the above passed! Cool

I am now calling the bill below (H.R.3) to the floor, and (*if I am allowed to move*) - I move that it be brought to a vote.
Is there a second?


AMERICAN PROVISIONAL GOVERNMENT
Committee: Primary Committee
Principal Author: Representative Sky-Opera
Bill No: H.R. 3
Delegation:
Title of Bill: An Act to Reduce Food Shortages and Prices
BE IT ENACTED BY THE AMERICAN PROVISIONAL GOVERNMENT

Preamble: The American economy is currently facing food shortages due to the increase in food prices and the current lawlessness that has destroyed cultural structure. Therefore as there are very few businesses that are able to produce food the government do what it does best in establishing order and making it safe while staying out of the way of free enterprise.

Section 1: The government will hire a media source at low expense to the tax payer to publicize the need and potential for the industries and farming for food production to grow and expand for the good of everyone involved. And also it will inform the people that using a bartering system is perfectly fit for the times and will promote the free-er exchange of needed goods to everyone’s mutual benefit.

Section 2: Then the government will remove all taxes on food produced in the nation; however it may tax imported food goods, for the time being in order to promote internal national growth. This will reduce the price of food.

Section 3: To protect fragile industries and the public peace it will require that mass produced food meet FDA standards to prevent revenge rioting etc.

Section 4: The government will start selling some government lands cheaply to help boost the farming industry by providing legitimate incentives.

Section 5: The government will establish a temporary committee that will see to the efficient distribution of renting permits for various forms of harvesting natural energy for the private and nationally owned companies. No foreign companies will be allowed to harvest American resources, because that would allow for the opportunity of foreign competitors to put American oil etc. companies out of business. Therefore additionally, imported natural resources will be taxed like imported foods.

Section 6: This bill shall be in effect 2 days after passage.

Aye.


Hearing four ayes only, the ayes have it. The Bill H.R. 3 is passed as long as we still get a majority after the NRC's vote.

Working on it.

But Christopher told me to post the budget, so here it is: -$ 1.5 billion.

Which brings me to a thing I haven't thought of, the taxes! XD

[You must be registered and logged in to see this link.]

Its not finished, yet, but it should work for now. It will have more factors and stuff.

According to it....
Ayes 57
Nays 36

A file is generated when voting is finished.

Also, any inquiry about the program should be made at its thread or by PM.

Aye

Actually I am not opposed to hearing from the NRC's, but since voting is already taking place you can factor their votes in, and we'll see what the outcome is.

I do want to follow the House rules. Is there something I'm missing?

Also honestly there is quite a few things to keep up with. scratch

My vote also is, Aye.

I am sorry; I didn't allow for debate.

If anyone has any thoughts, I will hold my previous concluding of the vote, until H.R. 4 has been debated.
