LAVRADA – Legislator Brizendine returned safely from Shenzhen, People’s Republic of China on September 7. Brizendine was seeking employment as an English instructor in the country, but was forced to return to the United States because of pronounced delays in the work visa application process. He plans to return to China around the end of the year to begin his job at a prestigious adult training school.
The Triumvirate convened on the evening of September 15 and again after a 48 hour recess on the evening of September 17. The sessions focused primarily on a petition and accompanying contract which Legislator Brizendine will submit to the Chamber of Deputies at its scheduled session on September 30. The petition calls for the dissolution of the Republican Military Protectorate, a large region located adjacent to Lavrasia which is currently under the administration of the Delveran Armed Services. Pending this dissolution, the Triumvirate will attempt to obtain signatures from local landowners in order to annex the territory to the province as an autonomous region. This will allow Lavrasia to utilize the area for a diverse array of purposes with landowner permission. Stated reasons for the change include the close historical ties between the province and the Protectorate, the latter’s decreased utility to the Grand Republic as a whole, and the realities of the area’s administration.
The Triumvirate also discussed and approved the first addition to the Provincial Treasury, which consisted of over 2500 curos worth of silver bullion and Hong Kong dollars. Additional future installments in a variety of world currencies are planned. A new logo for the body was also adopted.
The Commonwealth received much needed rain on September 17, with showers projected to continue throughout the week.
