Champions of the Old Republic
Critical Worlds Prosperity Act
The Critical Worlds Prosperity Act is a piece of legislation proposed by the Republic Engineering Foundation (REF) and currently being reviewed by the Committee House on Industry and Resources (CHOIR). It’s main purpose is to open up mineral and resource rich member worlds to rebuild resource or credit poor worlds ravaged by the New Sith Wars. The legislation is very broad, possibly giving corporation to power to strip mine worlds and take resources for greatly discounted prices or in some cases, free resources. It is hotly debated, as ravaged member worlds are quick to sign up, while worlds such as Cathar and Champala want to protect their world’s resources and natural beauty. Other interested parties are the REF, which stands to gain the most from the passing of the legislation and Tresh Medical and Bionics whose supplies can be devastated by huge conglomerates destroying ecosystems. This is the last stop before it is voted on by the Republic Senate. It can be stopped in the CHOIR with a majority, but can also be changed or amended before being passed to the Senate.
