The Creating Occupational Requirements for Executives (CORE) Act was the first major piece of legislation proposed in the 2014-III trimester. Proposed and framed by Major Executive Stenbach, the CORE Act became the subject of a large dispute between the Progressive Party which controlled the Administrative Branch through Speaker of the Administration Luke Cannon and the still relatively new Major Executive Edward Stenbach of the opposing Establishment Party.
The bill was put together originally just to make Executive entrance requirements more strict but, as the Progressive Party refused to work with Stenbach in framing this bill, he approached other parties to make compromises in order to get it passed. By the end of the framing process, a sponsor from every single party except the Progressive Party was signed onto the bill, and items like a 5% tax on foreign goods and spending cuts with regards to the Triumvirate's budget had been tacked on. This only increased Progressive opposition to it as they felt they had not been included in the process (despite being asked first earlier on). It passed the Executive Branch handily, by a vote of 9-2 when the bill was sent on to the Administration, but the Speaker of the Administration of course rejected it. Deputy Speaker Brayer (a Libertarian), who was already signed onto the bill, accepted it but the Progressives sought to stall the bill via continuous motions for postponement and a lengthy schedule until its passage.
It was stalled in the Administration for weeks but the bill finally passed on September 25, 2014, via an agreement following Chief Ambassador Jackson Mearl's announcement of retirement, wherein the following would occur:
- Senator Clark McDearny would become the Chief Attorney
- The Administration would fill his seat with whomever McDearny and Stenbach agreed to. (They chose Victor Martel of the Establishment Party)
- Greg Bailey would be elected as Chief Ambassador (Bailey was a Progressive, though he later came to leave the party)
- The Administration would pass the CORE Act, ceasing their stalling of it.
The CORE Act was repealed by the Revival Act in the aftermath of the Winter Attacks.
