Agency chiefs map possible cuts

BY STEVE LAW

Ballots are scheduled to be mailed Jan. 16-20 for the statewide vote on Measure 30. If voters overturn Measure 30, that would leave the state general fund and other discretionary funds at $11.05 billion for 2003-05. For 2001-03, the budget was $11.23 billion after a series of cuts. Statesman Journal The state might cut a wide range of programs and services if voters reject a $1.2 billion tax package next month.

Tax Revolt!

A tax revolt is sweeping the nation, but Democratic candidates for president have failed to notice. With first primaries of the 2004 election season just days away, they are still proposing tax hikes. While President Bush has put forth his fourth tax cut in four years, candidate Wesley Clark recently revealed a plan dredged from the Democratic sewer of bad ideas past, reeking of class warfare: he would raise taxes on the rich and cut taxes for the poor and middle class to make the system more “progressive” or rather, discriminatory. And, although the word “tax” only appears on one document on candidate Howard Dean’s web site, he has made his stance on taxes clear: he wants to repeal President Bush’s tax cuts, raising taxes on just about everyone with a job—from the Wall Street tycoon Clark would tax, to the person who shines his shoes.

Paving the Way for Broadband Communications

As Christmas quickly fades into last year, grateful recipients are learning how to use their new high-tech gifts, from wireless handheld PDAs to flat screen plasma televisions. Indeed, the array of products now available is staggering. Technology is truly pushing the frontiers of a wired nation. Unfortunately, regulators have a hard time keeping pace, and regulations created at a time when many of today’s products did not even exist continue to hinder access to these new technologies.

BOARD PRODDED ON ISSUE OF EARLY-PAY DISCOUNT

BY Wesley Young

Former Alderman Brian Green and some of his allies appealed Tuesday for tax breaks for residents who pay their property taxes early, but the Kernersville Board of Aldermen took no action on their request. At issue was a 2 percent tax discount that was given in former years to residents who paid their taxes before a certain date early in the fiscal year. The discount was begun in 1973, but by the late '80s it was no longer in effect.

Voters' Pamphlet for tax measure going in mail

BY CHARLES E. BEGGS

SALEM — If you're looking for answers about the tax increase on the Feb. 3 ballot, you'll be able to read all about it — including 75 arguments for and against the measure — in the state Voters' Pamphlet that was sent to post offices on Tuesday. The pamphlets — which officials say should reach most Oregon households by Friday — contain the official text of Measure 30 and as well as 55 arguments for the tax increase and 20 against. The measure would raise $800 million, mostly by temporarily boosting income taxes, to balance the current two-year state budget.

Deconstructing Rubinomics

©2004 Copley News Service, 1/6/2004 Just in time for the presidential campaign, former Clinton Treasury Secretary Robert Rubin has published a new book, "In an Uncertain World," in which he contends that the Clinton tax increase on middle-income Americans was "tiny." Rubin writes that he encouraged the tax hike because he thought it would "give us credibility in the markets." Here we have the essence of "Rubinonomics," a kind of New-Age social science premised more on feel-good psychology and business/consumer confidence than economic fundamentals.

Court OKs Texas redistricting

BY ROBERT T. GARRETT and PETE SLOVER

AUSTIN – Federal judges on Tuesday upheld a new congressional map for Texas designed by Republicans to boost the party's power in Congress and wipe out the state's last vestige of Democratic control. The decision by a three-judge panel clears the way for the March 9 primary to be held with lines the Legislature approved in October after months of bloody political combat. It could swing as many as seven seats from the Democratic to GOP column, potentially giving Republicans a 22-10 majority in the state's delegation to Congress.

Wisconsin: Citizens for a Sound Economy Supports the Taxpayer's Bill of Rights

Sometimes it seems like the foxes are running the henhouse—especially when it comes to state government spending. That’s why Wisconsin State Assembly Joint Resolution 55 (Taxpayer’s Bill of Rights, or TABOR) is a good idea. This bill, which is now before the Assembly and will soon be before the state Senate, would provide a mechanism to return control of our tax dollars to us, the taxpayers. It prohibits special interests from excessive government spending on their pet projects, it prohibits tax-and-spend politicians from raiding our pocket books and property, and it prohibits unions from fleecing the state.

Education initiative makes the ballot

BY JOSEPH TURNER

A measure that would raise the state sales tax by an estimated $1 billion a year for education programs has enough signatures to win a spot on the Nov. 2 general election ballot. Secretary of State Sam Reed announced Monday that he certified Initiative 884 for the ballot because it had nearly 250,000 valid signatures, well over the 197,734 signatures needed. State election workers checked 2 percent of the signatures and found about 22 percent in that sample were invalid.
