UEE Congress

Null(Citizen Star/NEWS) - by Citizen Ed - 2945-02-24 SET - Congressional autotranscripts hint at impended budget crises and a strained Imperial infrastructure.

Are things worse than we've been lead to believe?

This congressional squabble between budget reform bill sponsor Senator Kyle Polo (U-Angeli-Croshaw Sys) and opponent Senator Taryn Glasi (C-Vosca-Elysium Sys) hardly settles the matter, but reading between the lines we can see intractable divides and urgent crises ahead.

The results of these proceedings will likely have profound implications far beyond even the important issue of educating our next generation.

(Citizen Star/NEWS) - 2944-04-08 - UEE Senate authorized the formation of a Senate Committee under Senator Rachel Lester (T-Vann-Croshaw Sys) to review "Imperial outsourcing practices" with an eye towards rooting out any corruption the like the recent scandals we've suffered here in the Citizen Star HQ system, Goss. Senator Lester called for open hearings but this was opposed by Senator Tracey Glenn (U-Saisei-Centauri Sys). Senator Lester was given the choice of open or closed hearings, but the final determination has not yet been announced.

(Citizen Star/NEWS) 2944-01-21 - Commerce & Trade Committee chair Erol Gans (C- Locke - Idris Sys), had a few choice words for fellow Senator Yori Co (C - Green - Ellis Sys) following an outburst that disrupted a hearing concerning Xi'An's Jysho Corporation business Certification. Certification proposed by Senator Kelos Albervar (T - Terra - Terra Sys) came under fire for not limiting the alien corporation's ability to set up refueling and repair services. When reached for comment, Senator Co's representative flatly denied xenophobia was the motivating factor but instead cited a "need to protect the livelihood of our constituents."

Update 2944-02-16 - Citizen Star/NEWS was able to obtain transcripts of subcommittee records.
