The Orion Islands wrote:Wilson's new bill. Anyone wish to cosponsor?
Official Name: Saving America from Electromagnetic Pulses Act Nickname: EMP Act


Overview: This bill aims to protect America from an electromagnetic pulse attack.

Section 1: The electrical grid of the United States is not safe from an electromagnetic pulse from high in the atmosphere. A single nuclear device detonated at just the right height could knock out vital sectors such as communications, healthcare, police work, and fire services. Such an attack would largely disable the Emergency Alert System, leaving much of the country in the dark about the current situation and threats to their area. State and local governments could lose the ability to coordinate with federal authorities regarding critical issues in a potential state of war. Key war industries could be knocked out in some areas for years, severely damaging America's ability to resist. The governments of China and Russia regard this act of sabotage as a key part of their wartime plans. With North Korea also in possession of nuclear devices and Iran possibly having the ability to build one, it is more important than ever to protect our nation from this kind of attack.

Section 2: The United States Department of Energy is hereby charged with creating regulations on electrical utilities in order to safeguard continued access to their services after an electromagnetic pulse attack.

Section 3: The Department of Energy's regulation shall be developed with input from the United States Department of Defense, any company providing electrical power that would be affected, and technological consultants with expertise in electrical engineering and electromagnetic principles.

Section 4: The Department of Energy is hereby provided with a sum of seven billion dollars annually to aid electrical utilities with the necessary funding and materials for the upgrades ordered by the Department of Energy.

Section 5A: The regulation must be complete by July 3, 2019. The Department of Energy can apply for a delay from Congress if Congress determines it has reasonable cause to do so.

Section 5B: The target date for the completion of all upgrades is set to be July 3, 2024.

Section 5C: The Department of Energy is authorized from July 3, 2019 to appoint inspectors to send to electrical utility companies to determine compliance.

Section 6: The Department of Energy is hereby authorized from July 3, 2024 to levy fines equivalent to one and one half percent of profit for the last full fiscal year on an electrical utility company if said company has failed to do the upgrades and had the ability to do so.

This bill is then honorably presented to the United States Senate for consideration in order to provide for America's defense to improve the United States Law and is backed by Troy Wilson on July 3, 2017.

Do Not Remove: 1337


Ashe would cosponsor this before you even got a chance to say "cosponsor"


Roberts will vote in favor, and would co-sponsor the bill if it didn’t use specific country names in Section 1.

ICly it would probably go to Roberts just from bias

Some people are on just from friendships instead of being efficient

Dems should be able to fit in Smith without too much of a problem

OK, first off, ask before randomly saying you're taking over someone else's character. Utt has been OK with distributing in the past and it would probably work as a pickup but you can't just claim and start posting as him out of the blue

Second, if you're going to pick him up you've got to try to imitate him more than that. You've got a repeat of a one off nickname and then nothing else for those tweets that sound like him at all. Sounds a lot closer to Wilson than him

Hey, would it be okay if I created a set of Characthers, by which I mean a middle-class family that has to deal with whatever the Politicians do? I think it would be very fun to play as the people on the receiving end of the debacle that Washington Politics is.

Hopefully I stick with it this time and don't get overwhelmed by life instead. Would love to refine Ashe a bit, and maybe revisit my idea for a second character in a few months.
