Would this job conflict with my job as whip? If not, I'd like to throw my name in.

Yes, if I win the election for libertarian whip, I also need to know.

Mr. Speaker, please clarify this.

My interpretation is that it would not conflict. The Supreme Court could be asked if anyone seeks to challenge that, but I would say it doesn't.

I think you cod hold both offices. I think you are allowed to hold a major officer position as well as a committee seat

Splendid. I wish him, and any other interested candidates, the best of luck!

Best of luck to every candidate. I would be disappointed if no one ran other than the current speaker. This by no means should be taken as me being disappointed in the current speakers job, but this is a democracy. I'm glad someone is running.

Mr. Speaker, if you're present, I wish to raise a Parliamentary Inquiry.

At what point in the legislative process does the Mental Healthcare Act of 2014 stand?

It finished with 114 votes, tied at 50/50. Vice President NathanE cast the deciding 'nay' vote.

Hello. I am looking for 4 committee members, one from each party. There will be no mandatory meetings but I would like it if you could be easy to contact on skype. If you are interested, leave a comment with your party affiliation.

Not much policy making just monitoring the budget for the most part. We will discuss policy but no real legislation will take place.

Keep an accurate monitor over the budget of the VC and later we will discuss long term budget proposals.
