Can we have a discussion about this bill?

I'm fine with certain aspects of this, but not to be a buzzkill, I think letting people register and live in the UK is silly and adds a complicated layer to the game. People living over there can run for office in Atlasia and vote for/enact policies, yet they don't have to pay our taxes and aren't affected by our laws. It's a nice idea but completely unrealistic.

In speaking with the UK's prime minister today and a mutual understanding of a strong relationship between our nations moving forward, I urge a member of Congress to sponsor a bill that would repeal F.L. 2-8: Atlasian-United Kingdom Common Market Agreement.

It has come to my attention by Yankee that under the current constitution, there is no course of action if a president does not sign a bill, it simply remains in limbo until a decision is made. Under the old constitution, if a president didn't sign a law for 7 or 10 days, it would go into effect without their signature. To our knowledge, there is no clause in the current constitution that states that. If I am wrong on that, someone please correct me.

I had planned to do that with the Foreign Animal Products Act; I noted my reservations publicly during the debate but also recognize that it passed unanimously. While I technically could use this loophole to keep the bill from becoming law, it is my hope that Congress looks into rectifying this. In the meantime, I will sign the bill in good faith as there has already been a delay in it's enactment and a veto override would be certain to happen.

The Senate should reject the Parking Protection Act - this is the type of issue that should be left to the regions to decide, not the federal government.

It really needs to be up to the specific locality or metropolitan administrative division, IMO. Part of my motivation for running was to assist where this forum's demographics tend to leave blind spots. It's pretty apparent that a law such as this will cause parking lots in areas such as Downtown Los Angeles to be sold off for more profitable ventures, causing a cascade of more pressing issues. Unfortunately, this bill passed before I became a Representative, but I would also have significant concerns about unauthorized parking in reserved parking for persons with disabilities, among other problems that could be identified.
Actually I agree with you on that, I was just thinking if any level of government in Atlasia should monitor this, it would be regions instead of federal. But even more local makes the most sense, we just don't have that in the game. Hopefully we can successfully lobby Congress and/or the President to reject this.

How is the president able to appoint a new VP when there is no vacancy?

"to appoint, with the advice and consent of the Senate, the vice president in the event of a vacancy in that office; (Amended February 2019)"
