GOV. BILL OWENS TOUTS EDUCATION REFORM IN WASHINGTON

BY David Phinney

Republican Gov. Bill Owens touted Colorado's "school report card" program on Friday, explaining that by grading the performance of schools, the state is fueling a competitive spirit among educators to excel in teaching. Speaking before the Heritage Foundation, an influential conservative think tank, Owens told a sympathetic audience that the grading of schools, combined with the ability of parents to register their children in any public school throughout the state, is "really, really working" because it pressures educators to perform more effectively.

Economic Stimulus Fact Sheet

"The Economic Security and Recovery Act of 2001" was introduced by House Ways & Means Chairman Bill Thomas (R-Ca.) in response to the economic downturn following the September 11 attacks. This bill, HR 3090, attempts to revive economic growth through a combination of tax cuts, pro-business measures, and spending items. It will reduce government revenues by $99.5 billion in Fiscal Year 2002, according to the Joint Committee on Taxation.

Preserving Academic Integrity to Texas Schools

In November 2001, the Texas State Board of Education (SBOE) will be considering science textbooks for use in grade 6 to 12 classrooms for the next six to eight years. After review by the Texas Education Agency and public hearings, approval by the SBOE means that a given text meets the minimum educational standards required by the state. Local school boards are then provided with a list of textbooks from which they can select textbooks, but districts are not limited to that list. Citizens also have opportunity to participate in the selection process in their independent school districts.

NORTH CAROLINA: GOP FIELD TO FEATURE A GRAY AREA?

C. Boyden Gray (R), a DC "superlawyer" and ex-Bush 41 WH Counsel, is mulling a bid for the GOP nod to replace retiring Sen. Jesse Helms (R), according to well-informed Hotline GOP sources. His proponents believe Gray would be a "more formidable general election" foe against ex-WH CoS Erskine Bowles (D). As one Gray proponent puts it: "Boyden matches Bowles in money, skills and temperament." Gray is independently wealthy and could "easily self-fund" the race, according to these sources. As for making a final decision to run, friends say they are not sure, but that Gray "has not said 'no'" and seems "undaunted" by Elizabeth Dole's "high place in the polls." Gray, who once clerked for ex-SCOTUS Chief Justice Earl Warren, is a favorite of TV bookers when the issues of the day legal in nature. Search The Hotlinedatabase for "Boyden" during the times of impeachemnt and the FL recount and you'll find numerous hits.

Cipronymous

Not long ago, the names and uses of new pharmaceuticals was an esoteric subject discussed by few outside of the medical community. The public’s exposure to the names of these drugs was limited to scribbles on doctors’ pads and the labels of their prescriptions. Conversely, today the average American not only knows the names of new pharmaceuticals like Viagra and Celebrex, but demands them in consultation with his physician. In fact, a doctor’s willingness to write the prescriptions desired by his patients has become a criterion on which he is judged.

Letter to Congress on the Economic Security and Recovery Act of 2001

Dear Member of Congress: The September 11th attacks have left an indelible mark on our national landscape. As we move forward as a united, determined nation, Congress can take important steps to unleash the entrepreneurial spirit of America. With the economy slowing and Americans worried about their economic security, Congress needs to pass a pro-growth economic stimulus package.
