**** New WA Resolution Notification *****

A resolution to reduce income inequality and increase basic welfare.

And, the Repeals are taking a break, so we get to decide if we want the World Assembly guaranteeing protection from consumer products or whether we leave that up to ourselves. This one, despite being labeled "Mild" in strength, seems to be pretty strong governing not only imports, but exports as well. The NewTexas Incendiary Corp's EZ-Bake Home Flamethrower would definitely never make it out of our nation to eager consumers around The World ever again. The question is, do we want to give the WA the right to regulate our imports and exports? We are a very supply-and-demand-oriented nation made up of many mega-corporations united to form a nation (hence the "Incorporated NationStates of NewTexas designation). Imports and exports are our lifeblood. We do not think we can let the WA get away with this one. NewTexas will go on record as AGAINST on this Resolution. This is only the opinion of NewTexas. We look forward to other Texans' opinions and comments on this Resolution. If good arguments to the contrary are made, we will reconsider our position.

The Texas response rate was way up again on the last GA vote [Repeal "Space Research Station Program"], which passed easily with 70.75% of the vote. As a reminder, all we are looking for is a simple 10% of Texans to say one way or another. We are a force for change in the WA. Every vote counts! There were 12 opinions expressed on the last Resolution with the final Texas tally running 7 FOR and 5 AGAINST and 0 ABSTAIN and 0 UNDECIDED. Like the last one, Texans were totally split on that one.

NewTexas is open to suggestions on how we should vote on this Resolution to most accurately reflect opinion of the populace. All comments are welcome from all nations, both WA Members as well as those who are not. *As always, the WA Delegate vote will be based on popular opinion.*

Please make your voice heard on the current issue either on this message board or on our offsite message board. But, by all means, please vote on the WA Page!

If you would like to take part in shaping the world you live in, please vote. Voting is a right and a privilege, please consider using it.

All WA Member nations please vote. Please make your opinions known by 11:00pm Sunday as voting ends at 11:00pm Texas Time on Monday the 7th. Current voting in The World is running - Votes FOR: 2097 Votes AGAINST: 1059
