  3. United States Congress H. RES 016 San Andreas Government Dated 27th of January, 2020 This resolution is a conclusion of the allegations brought forward by the San Andreas Police Department relating to the abuse of power by the State Government following an interaction which occurred at the Police Department's precinct at East Los Santos on 21st of January, 2020. As for the investigation by the Oversight Committee, the following is established: Allegation which states the paychecks being altered after 17th January could not be verified and is therefore dismissed. Allegation which states the Government attempted to forcefully obtain information from the Police Department is proven to be true. The hearings have shown that the Government also attempted to force internal changes within the Police Department by using the authority to manage paychecks. Review of the footage from the precinct's CCTV, the uniformed trooper's body camera and the dash camera of the vehicle parked next by showed rather hostile approach from the Government. This resolution establishes the following: Both parties could have prevented the incident from occurring by establishing more fluent communication and utilizing more diplomatic approach to the matters of concern. Both parties are to arrange a meeting at which they are to discuss the issues at hand and find appropriate path forward to avoid such incidents from reoccurring. State Government may not use their authority to alter paychecks in such a manner, without any legitimate reasons, that it is used as a bargaining tool in order to achieve a goal or obtain information. Such acts can be considered extortion. State Government has the authority to make proposals to the State Agencies, and to work along with the State Agencies, however, the State Government does not have the authority to force changes on the State Agencies, the changes must be agreed upon by the State Agency head. State Government make a public notice on the appropriate public bulletin board at whichever point a change in paycheck is made, so all may be aware of the change as well as the date and time at which the change took place. The Congress will take no action against either party. Both parties are to align with this resolution and work in harmony in a reasonable manner which is within the boundaries of the law and ethics for the bodies of the Government.
  4. United States Congress H. PUB 001 San Andreas Government Dated 26th of January, 2020 The Congress has taken notice of the recent publication by the San Andreas Government and denies allegations made against the United States Congress. The function of the Congress and its Oversight Committee is to establish whether abuse of power occurred at the specified situation by calling in all witnesses from both parties and obtaining the accurate timeline of the events and facts on the matter. The Congress received a complaint on Friday, January 24th, 2020 7:41 pm. As a result of this complaint which alleges abuse of power to obtain internal information of the agency, the Congress launched an investigation to determine whether the State Governor used his position and the authority to manage the State Agencies' paychecks to obtain information which is outside the Governor's jurisdiction. Furthermore, in the first hearing which occurred on the 25th of January, 2020, Mr. Derek Shelby who voluntarily stepped up as a witness upon a request by the Congress, and by the statements given by both, Mr. Santos and Mr. Shelby, it was stated that the paychecks were altered after the confrontation at the Police Department's "South Central" precinct. Part of the transcripts from the hearing: 25-01-2020 19:06:55 - Matthew Carter: According to Mr. Santos, Governor Finney decreased paycheck of Command Staff to $800 25-01-2020 19:07:01 - Matthew_Carter: After the confrontation at the precinct 25-01-2020 19:07:04 - Matthew_Carter: Is that correct? 25-01-2020 19:07:21 - Derek_Shelby: Yes sir. Considering the severity of the allegations in question and the statements from both parties which are matching, the Congress has the duty to investigate the matter and obtain more necessary facts in order to make a determination on whether abuse of power occurred or not.
  5. United States Congress H. RES 015 San Andreas Governor Dated 25th of January, 2020 The Congress received a complaint from San Andreas Police Department in regards to recent actions taken by the San Andreas State Government - the reduction of paycheck for the commanding ranks in the Police Department. While the Governor has the authority to adjust paychecks, the circumstances of the specific case, as stated in the complaint, question if the authority was misused in order to obtain access to confidential information from the Police Department. Consequently, the Congress has launched an investigation into the whole scheme in order to determine whether the State Government overstepped their boundaries and abused their authority for ill intentions. The Congress held the first hearing on the 25th of January, 2020 and had sent an invitation to the hearing to Governor Brendan Finney a day prior, at a time at which both parties agreed were available at. In the hearing, a witness was revealed through the statement of Mr. Santos from the Police Department which was Mr. Derek Shelby. Mr. Shelby was called forward to provide his statement to the Congress, however, Mr. Shelby suddenly ran outside of the hearing with no explanation or justification. As the Governor failed to appear at the scheduled Congressional hearing, and the witness failed to comply with providing a statement as one of the key witnesses, the Congress is forced to issue a subpoena on the two persons in order to complete the investigation. S U B P O E N A To: Governor Brendan Finney, Mr. Derek Shelby Pursuant to lawful authority, YOU ARE HEREBY COMMANDED to make available to the CONGRESSIONAL OVERSIGHT COMMITTEE of the United States Congress, on Sunday, 26th of January, 2020, between 14;00 CET and 22:00 CET, with a notice of appearance which is to be submitted at minimum four hours prior to the availability. Failure to appear will be considered contempt of the Congressional subpoena and will be sanctioned.
  6. United States Congress H. RES 014 Bone County Dated 8th of January, 2020 Due to the recent rise in hostility shown by Bone County Resistance, which includes advertisements being published by the head of it, Reis Mucahit, The Congress will proceed with appropriate response. The United States, and San Andreas State, will not be threatened with violence and hostility, especially not by the people who were given a huge amount of space and opportunity to prove their intention, ability and will to cooperate with the US and State Government. However, and which is unfortunate for them, they failed to do that. Consequently, the following actions are decided: Any and all statuses that were previously delegated to Bone County are effective immediately nullified and considered invalid. Bone County is to once again fall under authority of San Andreas State Government, and will no longer have a Government of their own. San Andreas Police Department has full authority to enforce all applicable state and federal laws on the territory of Bone County.
  7. United States Congress H. RES 013 Nationalization of Market Ammunation Dated 5th of January, 2020 The Congress passes resolution to nationalize Market Ammunation, the business currently owned by Mr. Carlo Gambino. Market Ammunation has significance in the weapon market, as the primary source of legal weapons in the State of San Andreas, and as a business that generates massive amounts of profits on daily basis. The current law allows citizens to purchase these legals weapons sold in the Ammunations to use it to defend themselves and their property on the premises of their property. Unfortunately, the State has been suffering some symptoms of monopoly for the past years, which the Congress is forced to combat, in order to maintain healthy economy in the country. The following are the terms of the nationalization: Market Ammunation will remain in ownership of the current owner, Carlo Gambino. On the next time, at which the current owner, Carlo Gambino, chooses to sell, lease, rent or abandon the property, or in any way, shape, or form chooses to transfer it to another party other than himself, this resolution will come in effect. Once the resolution is in effect, the Federal Government will provide the owner, Carlo Gambino, with a reasonable buyout, keeping in mind the profit the business generates, its location and other relevant attributes. Finally, the Federal Government will lease the business to any citizen who wishes to lease the Market Ammunation, for lease price that will be determined at that point, and for which applications will be held where citizens who are interested into leasing the property will apply and be evaluated by the Federal Government.
