Character Information Sheet


NS Nation Name: Evereq
Character Name: Loma Aquene
Character Gender: Female
Character Age: 38
Character Role: Representative from Minnesota's 5th District
Appearance:
Character State of Origin: Minnesota
Character Affiliation: Progressive
Main Strengths:
Fresh-faced candidate
Grassroots Progressive
Strong with women and minorities, Native American herself
Main Weaknesses:
Democratic district
Lacks major funds
Newcomer to Congress
Can be difficult to be convinced, acts very independently
Can be idealistic
Background has limited her policy knowledge
Short Bio:

Born on a reservation, Loma grew up isolated from the outside world in the beginning. The living conditions on the reservation were hardly adequate so upon entering her teen years, she decided to go away for better opportunities. Her parents did not want her to leave but she did anyway, finding a job with other relatives who had left in Minneapolis. They had a small general store that she worked in while she went to community college for criminal justice. She decided to become a police officer following her graduation and passed the test easily.

By this age, nearly 26, she decided to marry. Her husband, Raymond Hunt, proposed and they moved together, though she maintained her maiden name to not lose her heritage from her tribe. She also became involved in early activism with some Green and liberal Democratic candidates, the beginnings of her political socialization. She began minorly controversial for a leaked videotape during a racial incidence in the Minneapolis PD where it showed her criticizing the handling of the issue by the department. It became a media swirl before being forgotten after the incident was resolved with the discharge of one officer.

When motivated by the Progressives, she decided to run for Congress in 2016. The incumbent had been a moderate and had survived a major primary challenge from the left. This left him damaged and vulnerable. Loma ran a grassroots campaign to help usurp him. Her effective use of news coverage and interviews allowed her to gain name recognition quickly. The Progressive wave also helped her leading to her victory over the incumbent in a close election. Her opponent requested a recount, though nonetheless, she won. She has been in Congress voting along the Progressive line and has been fairly aloof from leadership, both stemming from her dislike of the hierarchical party structure and the persona or what she considers a cult of personality, Ellen Walton.

Welcome to the roleplay.

If you like, many new players introduce their characters with a "slice-of-life" post showing us some aspect of their character or their daily life. You are welcome to do so if you like, or you can step right into the Congress thread. Currently, there are a pair of votes on which bill to next bring up for discussion and a possible vote. The current vote is whether to bring up the COST Act, a bill dealing with cost transparency for universities. If the vote is in the negative, then the vote will be for whether to bring up the Sex Change Coverage Act, which is largely self-explanatory as dealing with providing government funding for sexual reassignment surgery. Neither is a vote on the bills themselves, simply which can come first in line. You should, not, however, feel any pressure that you should start too quickly, feel free to wade in at your own pace.

In commentary on the Virginia debate, under Bell, Virginia's income tax brackets shifted upwards to 2.5/3.5/6/6.75, a relatively flat increase. This should not have any direct significance on the debate, Clearwater's figure should be presumed to be correct given the context, but I thought it worthy of note.

I believe we have more minority Republicans than typical, but I believe it is generally assumed Democrats still control the most minorities, with Progressives lacking in diversity, both from their white liberal connotation and still relatively small size.

Female Republicans, for certain, are heavily overrepresented.

Minorities in terms of sexual orientation seem to be overrepresented.

Race, from limited surface-level recollection, seems to be fairly evenly represented relative to real-life ratios.

Excellent. I shall proceed to review the bills and cast a vote accordingly...I have been working on an introductory post as well.

If you would like to, my Democratic and moderate progressive Rep. Eleanor McCroskey is seeking cosponsors for the following bill:

Official Name: FireArm-Related Research Act
Nickname: FARR Act


Overview: The Center of Disease Control (CDC) has served as one of the leading government research institutes in the United States to further the general welfare of this country for decades. However, in the past, the center has been effectively prohibited from researching firearm-related deaths due to funding cuts and riding amendments. Due to the lack of factual, scholarly research surrounding firearm violence, many innocent Americans have lost their lives to this crisis. Every day, an estimated 100 Americans are killed due to firearm-related causes across the country. In order to prevent firearm-related violence in the future, the United States government must begin by locating and understanding the root of this crisis. According to the Overview of the CDC FY 2018 Budget Request, the Injury Control Research centers, which are the research centers who evaluate activities related to the health and economic impact of injury and violence, are granted approximately $9 million. Granting the CDC a $14 million budget for their Injury Control Research Centers, an increase of $5 million from the previous year, will serve as a catalyst for research of firearm-related violence and deaths. Therefore, the American public as well as lawmakers can start to understand why these crimes occur and effectively decrease the number of innocent lives lost to firearm-related violence daily.

Definitions: Defines "firearm-related violence" as any criminal violence perpetuated where a firearm of any kind, as defined by U.S. code, is utilized.
Defines "research" as all scholarly, peer-reviewed, and scientific approaches and methodology conducted to provide statistics, proposals, and potential policies for public use.

Section 1: Congress shall grant and allocate the quantity of $14 million to the Center of Disease Control (CDC), specifically their Injury Control Research Centers.

Subsection A: The additional quantity of $5 million granted to the CDC shall be used specifically for firearm-related violence research.

Subsection B: This increase was determined by accounting for inflation of the $2.6 million granted towards firearm-related violence research before restrictive amendments were put into place.

Section 2: All other laws in conflict with this bill and its parts shall be declared null and void.

Section 3: The amount shall be allocated upon the beginning of the next fiscal year, which shall be October 1st, 2017.

Subsection A: Nonetheless, the CDC may conduct firearm-related violence research within 90 days of this bill’s passage.

This bill is then honorably presented to the United States House of Representative for consideration in order to allow much needed research into firearm-related violence to guide statistical information and policy to improve the United States Law and is backed by Congresswoman Eleanor McCroskey and Congressman Jason Samara on June 12th, 2017.

Oh shoot the FARR act is going to be difficult for Morton. He might abstain.

UC Davis has a state-sponsored gun violence research center that would be extremely eager for federal funding.
