Secretary Grumman --

General MacArthur and I have been considering exactly what you are proposing. I cannot say more in such a public setting, but it is being reviewed.

President Willkie

((It's past 10 -- I have to update another AAR, then I'll play this one. Might update tonight, might not.))
Great minds think alike. OPSEC is very important, perhaps I should have made my suggestion privately.

Senators, I come to you with exciting news. Our scientists have made a breakthrough in Civilian Nuclear Research, and we will be able to break ground on our first nuclear reactor in June of 1942. I am coming to you with a request for additional appropriations for FY 1942 to cover the cost; I would also like to see suggestions as to where this facility ought to be constructed. ((I'd like to see at least one bill that includes appropriations and location. If there's more than one, that's fine too.))

General MacArthur, all of our objectives in the Atlantic Theater, at present, have either been achieved or will be in the next 30 days; please send me detailed plans for our next move.

Chiefs, we have recently reached oversaturation in our officer corps; since I will be transferring additional funds to research and development, please send me any recommendations for new technical programs.

I would like our next round of war plans and bill drafts for my consideration by Thursday at 10 PM (-6 GMT).

President Willkie

Mr president, senators. The great city of Atlanta would be more than happy to host America's foray into this new field of endeavor. As a growing transportation hub, yet not too close to coastline where it might be subject to random shelling/raids, the many scientists and technicians would find housing and amenities more than adequate. The convenient co-location of major rail systems will allow for easy transport of any and all equipment. There can be no better location for this modern marvel.
Senator Richard Newman, (R) Georgia

Good Afternoon everyone. I agree to Senator Newman's proposition. If there will be attack on our glorious land, it will not come from inside of country but from coast line. I think Japanese Empire is too weak, to invade our west coast line ever, but Germany with the possible success can attack our east coast line. It's very good to position that one, or maybe more reactors in future in Atlanta.

Senator Jack Rimbly, (A-G B) Virginia

Newman-Rimbly is officially a candidate bill for the location of our nuclear power plant, which would be located in Atlanta. If any other Senators wish to propose their own location (or, if you're so inclined, a bill that would ban the power plant altogether and thus keep us from ever getting nukes), please do so.

I vote Aye on the Atlanta power plant. Let's just be careful and not burn the city in nuclear fire. I'll gladly allow SiNTek to aid the government in establishing a safe and failproof set of rules to help prevent from anything in the plant from going awry.

- Senator Elexis Sinclaire (R - MA)

Senators,

Voting has not formally begun on the Newman-Rimbly bill. I apologize if there was any confusion. We are still in the stages of seeing if there are any other bills; I will inform you all when I open the polls.

Fellow Senators,

It is humbly that I ask that you reconsider your plans to place this first reactor in Atlanta. As we are not familiar with this technology, or its ramifications on our people and society, I suggest that we place this technology in a place where it is isolated and safe from harming our fellow citizens and our economic and industrial bases. As Atlanta is a transportation hub, it is hard to control the amount of growth and traffic that the area will see. We risk our technology being discovered by prying eyes traveling through, and any ramifications or problems within the process will hinder the entire economic stability of the region. In order to best serve our constituents, I feel it is important to consider less populated areas such as Nevada, Utah, or Wyoming. Any of these sites will preserve all issues of national security previously presented, without compromising our economy should other unforeseen circumstances present themselves.

I offer that the proliferation of such dangerous and unstable technology be kept away from endangering our glorious nation's recovering economy.

-Senator Keon Monisset (D-NV)

((Looking for a senator to cosign on a plan for future reactors, which I will be happy to present if you're interested. PM me for details))

Yes sah! I just bet that the senator from Nevada recommends Nevada for such a project. However the fine citizens of Georgia will not give in so easily. If we were to build in such a god forsaken locale, we would be forced to build all of the support structure from scratch and plop our researchers into the middle of nowhere. Certainly the finest minds our nation can muster deserve more? Atlanta sah! Atlanta can provide everything such a project needs. Also consider that Atlanta offers another bonus. Anonymity. If we build this facility out in the desert, it can be nothing other than what it is and scientists, generals, and engineers there can be nothing else but high value targets in a god forsaken desert. In cosmopolitan Atlanta, such persons could easily "blend in" to the background and move unnoticed.

If Senator Monisset gets a co-signer, we'll officially start voting. I assumed we'd also have somebody who wants to ban the reactor altogether -- shows what I know. ;)

FYI, when/if we get nukes, we'll have to work out some mechanics for using them, but until then, we'll stay focused on where we are now.

"The senator from Atlanta is quite eager to put his own citizens in danger. I've spoken to several top physicists involved in nuclear science since this project was proposed and they have all warned me of the potential dangers that a nuclear reaction could pose to human health. Although we can design shielding to protect our people from these risks, why should we take the risk? I second the proposal to build this reactor in the western deserts, where population is sparse. Furthermore I suggest somewhere near Cedar City would be an excellent location as the desert there is quite barren and remote, but the city itself lies on one of our major transport and communication lines between California and the rest of the country. It's the perfect combination of remoteness and access to transport and would allow us to test the potential and the safety of this new technology without risk to our people."

I agree to Mr. Monisset - This new Technology needs to be built away from the People, to protect ourselves. A spot along one of our mayor Highway routes accross the Country would be perfect - the Connection would be possible, but most of the Time it would still be far away enough to not Harm anyone.
I hereby give my support to Mr.Monisset if he wants to Propose a new Spot, however i highly recommend we choose one not in one of our homestates, to not endanger this good idea with our personal intents.

Our state is an optimal location for such a project. In fact, I would be remiss to recommend any state less idyllic given the circumstances. Our nation may require the developments of this project in order to remain the unparalleled bastion of liberty that it is, Senator. I, personally, am not familiar with the science behind this wondrous invention, nor do I pretend to understand it. It is, to my limited comprehension, supposed to represent an access to a new form of energy the likes the world has never seen, and for that - I cringe at the thought of it running rampantly through populated areas and jeopardizing any American, from New York to California.

However, for those who doubt my sincerity as to the concerns that I mentioned, please take note that I offered other options, including neighboring Utah, or even a more remote state such as Wyoming. I am not for bipartisan politics, but solely for the security of our nation. We have an opportunity to reinvigorate our nation, to pull ourselves up by our bootstraps, and I - unlike yourself, Senator Newman, am not willing to jeopardize the well-being of our nation to the benefit of individual constituents.

We may be from different states, Senator, but we are all Americans. I hope that you will remember that in the future.

-Senator Keon Monisset, D-NV

We have two official bills ((sorry, tyriet, I don't quite understand yours; we have to build them in the US. Are you just saying not in Washington?)) now. I'll give you until 5 PM (-6 GMT) tomorrow to propose any additional bills.

We aren't starting the vote yet, but we've had an influx of new Senators lately, so I want to go over mechanics for voting.

1. Please bold your vote. This makes counting much easier.
2. You may vote for any bill you wish; even if you co-sponsored a bill, please vote in the voting stages so I don't miss any.
3. Party leaders may filibuster (look at the OP for filibustering mechanics). Given the circumstances, I don't expect filibustering for these bills, since the differences are pretty slight.

If you have questions, let me know.
