    Virginia, New York Pass Massive Militia Reorganization Acts By Jameson Owens The Virginia General Assembly has recently passed a militia reform bill that will officially create a standing state guard to protect Virginia's borders and interests. The legislation authored by Congressmen Declan Owens of Virginia's First District, reforms the state militia organizations into a newly created executive department call the Virginia State Guard Bureau. "After spending several years in the Continental Army, I understand the importance of maintaining a strong national defense." Said Congressmen Owens. The act will also create a military academy to train new officers to be built in Virginia at a location to be determined. Rumored locations have included Norfolk, Alexandria, and Richmond. Following Virginia's lead the New York State Legislature has passed a similar bill. "I'm pleased to see my legislation gaining ground. I hope that other states follow Virginia's lead like New York has. This is just a precursor to the Uniformed Services that our country needs." Said Owens. Following New York's passing of the legislation though, their still remains the concern of the Vermont Crisis. Virginia's prominent Congressman Declan Owens has authored legislation that will hopefully end the crisis where it stands.
  12. Mr. President, I urge you to reach out to Governor Clinton to find a peaceful solution to the Vermont Crisis, even if that means sending a federal delegation to negotiate a compromise. New York is in open violation of the Constitution by committing militia against the Vermont Territory. I pray that you will see this issue as clearly as I have, because I know you believe in the supremacy of the document we both fought so hard to create. With Liberty,

    New York Threatens War By Jameson Owens Recently New York Governor George Clinton was approached by a representative from Vermont about the possibility of seeking reconciliation of their border to secure statehood. After speaking with member of New York's Congressional delegation who all advocated for the forceful takeover of the Vermont territory. Per the Constitution States are prohibited from entering into an sort of agreement or using force without the consent of Congress. "Congress has not given it's consent nor will it. If a territory is seeking statehood, then we will use every power granted to us to see that process through." Said Declan Owens, a representative to Congress from Virginia. "I plan to urge congress to send a delegation to New York to mediate and come to an equitable solution that takes into account New York's claims and Vermont's request for statehood." He continued. Recently Congressman Owens proposed the Vermont Resolution Act, which authorizes the creation of a delegation to negotiate a compromise between the State of New York and the Vermont Territory. There is some fear that before the Act can be passed that New York with begin a war to keep the territory in their control. "There is some concern in Congress that there could be war. I hope to avoid that for the sake of National Unity." Said Owens. Regardless this puts a spotlight on the Federal Government to see how they handle this situation. Will it be overreach or is this a states right issues? We won't know till the match is already lit.
