Final Draft Budget Proposal 1938

Seeing as we did very well in 1937 I wish to use to bill to propose we keep going in the same direction. 1937 has been a calm year, but also a year that has shown us we need to be prepared for the future. There are too many incidents happening around the world for us to just sit and wait patiently. Once the time comes we need to be able to act decisively. So I hereby present my budget proposal for 1938:

The area's whereupon I didn't comment can be considered as fine as they are. We needn't change everything.

Leadership:
- Officers: 0
- Diplomacy: 0.25
- Espionage: 1.5
- Research: 31.25 (What's left)

Production Plan

Since we worked on designing new naval and land techniques last year, it is now time to put these designs into production. Last year's Rudolf-Sinclaire 1937 Budget included a heavy focus on the Air force. This was done under the agreement that this year, the army and the navy would get the emphasis. Hence I propose the following division of our industrial capacity:

- Upgrades: 0 IC
- Supplies: 0 IC
- Reinforcements: 0.5 IC
- Consumer Goods: 39.36 IC (whatever gives us 0 dissent)

This leaves us with an average of about 120 IC to spend on anything else (correct me if Im wrong) :
- Any buildings and constructions: 40 IC
- Navy: 35 IC
- Army: 35 IC
- Air Force: 10 IC (in order to finish up the queue)

I shall not do any suggestions on what every department should construct, for it is the appropriate minister who can decide on these matters most effectively.

Conclusion:

With this plan we can continue to advance America into a modern state with the equally modern capabilities to defend its interests around the globe. I also would like to thank my fellow senators for their confidence in my bill. Now it's up to the ministers to spend our money wisely.


- Senator John Linton, FL-D

((I hope it is all clear what I have written down with the techs now :) also, you can assign the 4 or 5 new COs to any empty squadrons as you see fit Avin ;) ))

Senator Linton, as General Westover has informed me via telegram, you have not included a tech distribution in your bill. Rather than keep them waiting, I have decided to allocate 8 slots to each service.

President Roosevelt

((Chiefs, I accidentally deleted some of the PMs that had deployment orders; when you send along your plans, could you please include any deployments for stuff that it is in the queue but unfinished? Chimina, let me know if you want to change your plans as you sent them with the lesser tech slots I've allocated.))

((Am I the only one amazed it took us this long for a Senator from Texas?))

((I was actually going to be from North Dakota until I saw that we had no Texas Senators. Surprising, really, given the amount of resources available for anyone to use in plotting a coup defending our nation.))

Honored Senators,

Per the requirements of the Linton-Sinclair bill, the Army has submitted its budget and orders for 1938. I would like to thank Senator Linton for his generous support of the Army, which will enable us to meet our intended force strength of ten reserve corps and two active-duty corps by the end of 1938. Nonetheless, I humbly request that you maintain this level of funding throughout 1939: doing so would allow us to complete the upgrading of our armored forces, as well as to establish a Ranger Corps that specializes in warfare the rough terrain where we will most likely fight in the near future.

General Douglas MacArthur,
Chief of Staff of the Unted States Army

State of the Union: July 1, 1938

My fellow Americans,

1938 has been very quiet these past six months. The war between Japan and China goes very slowly. I am told by our Ambassador to China that Japan has barely penetrated Shanxi. However, Germany has made a brilliant diplomatic maneuver.

38anschluss.jpg


The annexation of Austria by Germany is yet another violation of the Treaty of Versailles by Mr. Hitler, and yet the British and French remain silent. This is very curious, but it is not our fight. Secretary Hull insists that the Germans had no hand in this acquisition; I, for one, am unconvinced, but I must take Mr. Hull's word for it.

That is all for now. Thank you, and good night.
-----------------------------------------------------------------
There really isn't much to discuss, honestly. I would ask my chiefs to add a couple of extra techs to their wishlists, as we got some new ones via the Education bump. All four need to give me two apiece; not all eight will be researched right away, but I think Saithis, in particular, is short a tech or two.

I've decided not to include a save or queues from the first six months, since we won't vote on a new budget until after the next update. It makes them a little quicker to write, and let's be honest, we're all waiting to see what happens when the war starts.

I don't have anything specific for you folks to vote on, unless you want to respond to the Anschluss somehow. That would be a little hypocritical, since as far as we know it's totally legitimate and we've kept our mouths shut thus far. Then again, hypocrisy from politicians wouldn't be entirely out of place. :)

Still, in case somebody wants to introduce a bill for something I haven't thought of, I'm going to hold off on playing more until Thursday evening. If there is a bill to worry about, I'll set up appropriate deadlines.

(( Are we allowed to propose a bill naming the new SHBB and making it the pride of the navy, or is that a decision of the Naval Chief))

I'm almost positive you can't rename individual ships in HOI 3 without editing the save. I haven't given much thought to the Pride of the Fleet stuff, but that does sound like something Congress would bestow. So, yes, you can make a bill to have the ship Pride of the Fleet-ed, but probably not rename it.

((Why are we building an SHBB? We should be concentrating on carriers))

That would be a question for the Chief of the Navy, Senator.

((Actually, if the chiefs have the time, why not share your grand visions with Congress? It's been a while since we've done that, and it might be a good idea for military panhandling from Congress if they know what you're about :)))

(( You can and if you like I can show you how. As a note, this class was planned but never executed as the Montana-class Battleship, with the planned ship to be the USS Montana. ))

That would be a question for the Chief of the Navy, Senator.

(( I'll give it a shot when I can, sure. As for the Battleship thing, I'm waiting on some more carrier techs I'd like to finish before the new run begins, and I'm RPing this. The SHBB is for flavour, fun and just because we can. We'll have ample time to spam out a ludicrous number of carriers before the war begins. ))

So we can get to 1939 quicker (and perhaps war?), I'm going to go ahead and start playing in an hour or two. We'll save the Pride of the Fleet bill for when the SHBB is actually finished. Updates should be tonight.

I will make sure my staff gets a copy of the latest progress to you after my State of the Union, Senator.
