OOC:

Thing One: R and S are very close together. Sorry about the title. Will have PM a mod on that.

Thing two:

This may appear to be redundant, since JED had his news thread changed. We talked about it over PM, and decided that an entirely separate news thread for the FSA would be more appropriate. I volunteered for the job, and here I am. So it is not a duplicate thread.

IC:

FSA News & Movements section, regarding actions undertaken by the FSA as a whole. Please refer to the FRA and New England news/movement threads for local news.

MAD (closest thing FRA has to a news thread)

National Transition Board Decisions

With the successful meeting between FRA and New England delegates in Washington, F.D. (formerly, Washington City), the following issues have been decided upon:

  • Flag of the FSA
  • Military High Command merger
  • Infrastructure between FRA & New England
  • Washington Federal District
  • Law Enforcement on Local & Federal levels

Flag of the FSA

The Flag of the FSA has been designated as the old 25-star flag of the USA. This is to symbolize what we hope will become a more unified American nation.

Military High Command merger

Upper-echelons of the FRA and NE military will be combined together, however the FRA and the NE will retain control over their respective militaries. A Commander-in-Chief will advise the two Presidents and is their link to the military.

Infrastructure between New England & FRA

Tennessee, recognized as a key point between the FRA & New England, will be fortified extensively, and massive high-way projects will be built along the border. Also, to compensate for New England's vast amount of sea-side states, Georgia will begin the construction of several new ports within the state. Numbers ranging from 3 to 5, along both major and minor cities.

Washington Federal District

Washington City will become Washington, F.D., to symbolize the change from state to national capitol.

Law Enforcement

Law enforcement will be handled by local authorities (FRA or New England, or even state, county, or city authorities), up until the point in which the crime is so severe as to involve federal authorities. Then the FSA will have jurisdiction superseding that of the FRA or New England. The hierarchy goes: City -> County -> State -> FRA/NE -> FSA.

An Intelligence agency and Bureau of Investigation will be set up in Washington, F.D. to handle criminal and intel affairs.

PUBLIC

In accordance to the final decisions of the National Transition Board, the national assembly (OOC: Should it be a Congress or is it a National Assembly? :unsure:) drafted a bill. Named the Resolution to Rename the National Capital, the bill passed both Houses by a large margin and arrived at both Presidents Johnson and Englemanns' desks. President Johnson readily put his signature onto the draft and passed it on to Englemann. If he signed that as well, then the change would be official and formal; Washington City would be renamed Washington, F.D. and a new Federal District would be created. The problem now lay in the political structure of the region, especially the State of New Columbia. There is a strong possibility that the state would be abolished and replaced by a new federal jurisdiction, which didn't sit well with state and local officials of New Columbia. However, the population of the new capital seemed receptive to this change.

OOC: Okay. ;3

With Engelmann's signature on the bill, it came into effect. Under the provisions of the now-named [b]National Capital Act[/b], Washington City was officially renamed Washington, F.D. and soon was referred to as the 'Federal District' and the 'Federal City' by the city's population. However, the new Act highlighted the ongoing concern of the city's local and state officials as a debate raged in Washington's City Hall regarding the status and jurisdiction of the State of New Columbia. If the state is to be dissolved, which made many state officials uncomfortable, what would it look like? Should a new Federal District be established that encompasses the state's (and the city's) boundaries, or should the majority of the city be incorporated into the Territory of Maryland, save for a select of areas that would be designated as federal property (the Capitol, White House, etc)?

It would probably be better to isolate the entire area completely as a federal district, so as not to give favoritism to any state.
