    FEEDBACK: News Wire

    If something is posted to the news wire that isn't for one reason or another reported on by the in game media then even though it's happening in the simulation it's as though it never happened for us that don't have media characters. For that reason I think the news wire should just be available for everyone.

    Lower Business Taxes

    Mr. Clement, I find this to be agreeable, good sir, it has my support. @Doomhammer

    Lower Business Taxes

    Mister Clement, I believe that in the long term, more business growth as a result of less taxation is desirable in the long run, but our tax income will be lowered significantly. Are there any other alternative solutions you can offer? On the topic of the state militia, I believe that the minimum age for membership should be raised to fourteen. @Doomhammer
