Steph shakes her head gently, a grin on her face. "My personal favorite, and one the Scrum happens to share at the moment, is the subtle approach. Schedule it juuust far enough out that your departments and administrators would have held their very first planning meetings and brainstorming sessions the day after it's repealed. Keeps 'em on their toes without actually disrupting their real work. Bureaucrats need exercise, ya know. This is how we justified remaining in the WA during the dark days of the World Space Administration - as it happens, if it had gone another couple days we'd have had to leave, but it worked out OK in the end."

"This one, I'm told the planning sessions start in two weeks. Just to be safe, you understand." Steph grins as she winks her left eye. "Why, we're the very model of compliance! Just look how fast we're starting up these programs!"

"The issue with that approach is that we'd still have to prepare all the resources for the meetings just in case the repeal fails."

"I am going to laugh at you both, rudely and loudly and with lots of pointing, if the repeal effort is unsuccessful the first time around. Consider yourselves appropriately warned."

Steph shrugs. "Hey, I don't pick the dates, just like I don't write the laws. But if I did, I'd still be pretty confident about this one. And even if the slushie in the middle dribbles all over the voters and they reject it the first time, it'll be good for the bureaucrats to have to start thinking about something different. Like I said, they need exercise."

"Of course, they have already been held in the Imperium. Two sessions, approximately five seconds long. Broadcasted in a silent format, as well as without any video components, so as to not distract personnel from their duties. Further, exactly one Iron Mark has been allocated to Internal Security reforms that do not exist.
As such, we are in full compliance."
