Barry, My Liege:
There are a few items which warrant your full attention, despite the election process:
1. Restoration of Chain of Title in Real Estate:
I do not know of a specific act proposed to address this question, but the need for one is urgent. A clear chain of title to real property is required for the formation of wealth in the country.

2. Reduction of Nuclear Arsenal:
It is possible to reduce our stockpile of nuclear arms without damaging our national security. This will save enormous sums of money and should be implemented as soon as possible. Beware the Military/Industrial complex which may lobby for retention of high dollar contracts and a large nuclear stockpile.

Representative Earl Blumenauer, (D, OR) offers a bill to provide similar treatment for both individuals and corporations in the Bankruptcy process which is currently tilted in favor of corporations.
A no-brainer, we should pass this one.

Your faithful servant,
