National Industry Front Groups and Lobbying Firms Campaigning for Michigan Cable Legislation

National industry front groups and lobbying firms connected to AT&T are campaigning for the passage of HB 6456 in Michigan. The bill would adjust the way that cable franchises are awarded in the state in light of efforts by AT&T and other telecommunications companies to compete with cable providers. Franchises are currently negotiated on a per municipality basis while the bill would setup a statewide franchising system, under which any existing franchises could be cut immediately. There is a potential that local communities could lose as much as $47 to $57 million in revenue from changes in the franchising process. While AT&T has already come out in the press in support of the bill when it stated that it would not invest money or create jobs in Michigan if HB 6456 does not pass, it is also making use of national lobbying firms and industry front groups to advocate for the passage of the bill in a more subtle manner in which AT&T appears at first glance not to be backing the effort.

Bill Guida’s May 17 barb against Paul Ryan was disgraceful. Guida ridiculed Ryan for stumping for personal retirement accounts “because Congress hasn’t had the moral or ethical courage to protect Social Security monies from being raided.” Guida should examine the Congressional record. He would discover that stopping the raid on Social Security has been Paul Ryan’s “raison d’être” since he was first elected to Congress.

Russian Bear Sets a Trap

BY Richard W. Rahn

Have you noticed New York residents do not fear a cutoff of their natural gas supplies because of a potential political or economic dispute with Texas? But envision a scenario where the State of Texas owned all of the natural gas in that state and the distribution network to other states, and where the governor of Texas decided to ignore pre-existing contracts in order to force New Yorkers to pay more for their gas since they were totally dependent on the Texas monopoly.

The Remarkable Dr. Ayau

BY Richard W. Rahn

Nations do not just become rich by accident. Economic prosperity is largely determined by the ideas and decisions of individuals regarding the political organization and economic policies in their countries. If the American Founding Fathers had not been well schooled in the ideas of John Locke, David Hume, Adam Smith and others, their design of the great American experiment would have been less perfect and thus unlikely to have succeeded. If there had been no F.A. Hayek and Milton Friedman, Ronald Reagan and Margaret Thatcher would have lacked much of the intellectual base they needed to revitalize the economies of the United States and United Kingdom.

Conservative Measures Take Big Fall

BY Diane Dietz

Oregon voters took a sharp turn this election away from anti-government, anti-tax measures - and that stunned veteran conservative activists such as Don McIntire. "The left has repudiated the concept of smaller government," McIntire said Wednesday. "The majority - as far as I can tell - can't get enough government or pay enough taxes." McIntire, a perennial figure on Oregon's political scene, said he's ready now to take a break. "It's time for some fun hobbies," he said.
