My office shall be releasing a voter's guide in the coming days!!!!

As usual, I wish Alcris a successful month of holding initiatives and referendums.

Avanor wrote:Initiative: Require Monthly Government Reports
An initiative which would require regional councilors to publish monthly reports on their office's actions over the past month.

I would like to note as someone who has visited hundreds (literally) of NationStates regions and other RP democracies for voters to be careful from creating a system that requires too much paperwork/bureaucracy. Usually the bureaucracy builds up slowly — requirements for reports/paperwork for x function, y function, z function, etc. are usually passed separately. Over time the paperwork becomes too much and the state just collapses because government officials and/or civil servants simply can't (or is more often the case — aren't motivated) to keep up. That won't happen instantly, of course, because regions are usually very well motivated in the first months of operation but I've seen regions years down the line (like 2-3 years later) collapse into itself because of excessive bureaucracy. Either the region just dies (no one even wants to run for office anymore) or there is a massive movement to "reset" and start from scratch (which can be really destabilising and unsustainable).

That is to say that I'm not advocating people to vote one way or the other for this specific initiative. But if by report, you mean reports of a similar level that you have been doing for your allied regions like this: https://drive.google.com/file/d/1B3SdzZAIHoYranpaDkS3kvz6L4ey7FE6/view (New West Indies opinion), then I'd be really mindful that that could be imposing too onerous of a duty on government officials. If, on the other hand, the requirements of the initiative can be done in a simple paragraph, then I think the duty is far less onerous. In any case I think that Alcris voters should be careful to consider the impact paperwork requirements can have when imposed on government offices.

I think the policy is advocating something similar. It would be a typed statement that would just be pasted into one of our template documents.

Don't murder me for it. But the only republican I supported was Abraham Lincoln.
