Davishire feels that if the regional budget has a surplus countries should as a result contribute less to the regional budget so as to assist in reducing that large surplus.
As a result I feel that national contributions should fall by at least 300 billion.
After reviewing the document provided by Commissioner Reed the government of Os Corelia pledges support to passing this budget. We also would be up for a review of surplus use it would make sense to return the surplus funds to our national chancelleries. Perhaps an amendment to the budget act could be explored to ensure there is no waste working off the yearly budget figures.
The grossdeutscher government would like to clarify in which currency unit the budget proposal is based on. Additionally, we think it would be good for clarity's sake to attach a brief glossary with the meaning of the acronyms mentioned in the document.

May I point out to the Councillors that, the surplus is automatically returned to member states from which it originates, or is kept in the EU's coffers for emergency budget problems. Meaning there is no need to worry about the surplus in any form.
As for the Councillor from the Grossdeutsches Reich, here is a list of the document acronyms mentioned on the document;
- ENAA- European Nuclear Applications Authority
- EBCWA- European Biological and Chemical Weapons Authority
- ERF- European Relief Force
- EACF- European Art Collaboration Fund
- EHIC- European Health Insurance Cards(((OOC: This one may or may not be wrong)
- EHAC- European Healthcare Accreditation Committee
- ECoJ- European Court of JusticeAfter looking over the budget as a whole, I see no problem with it and gladly will support it when it comes to vote. It's time Europe have a proper budget after a four month budget crisis.

The Empire of Inimicus is happy a budget has been proposed, and will fully support this budget.
"I am in favour of this budget. However, I do believe that we should look towards dramatically reducing the price of a patent in time for the next budget. I am happy that surplus money is returned to governments - perhaps for simplicity's sake, we may one day reduce national contributions so the surplus never gets to Europolis in the first place, but that's a trivial concern - but no surplus money goes back to the innovators who make use of our patent system. The current, unnecessarily high price of a patent has a tangible economic effect and restricts access to patents to big business."

"After looking over this budget carefully, our Government supports this budget for the European Union."
Following careful examination, the government of Miraco extends it's support for the proposed budget.
Northern Caesarea basically agrees with this project
