I just finished Cloak of Deception and am a little confused with regards to the passage of the bill taxing the trade routes. Why was the Senate tax bill immediately passed after the assassinations on Eriadu? Was it passed because it was seen as being in the best interest of the Trade Federation (with regards to increasing its defenses) even though the Federation opposed the taxation?—Unsigned comment by188.8.131.52 (talk • contribs).
