NH House, Senate speak out against attack

HOUSE AND SENATE leaders issued resolutions last week expressing official outrage over the World Trade Center attack. Senate President Arthur Klemm stated on behalf of the Senate that it stands with the citizens of New York City and Washington, D.C., "in shock and sorrow over this reprehensible attack on the liberty and freedom to which civilized nations around the globe aspire." The resolution was sent to President George W. Bush and New York Mayor Rudolph Giuliani.

There's a Better Way for Snohomish County

Proposition 1, placed on Snohomish County’s September 18 primary ballot by Community Transit, would increase the sales tax .3 cents per dollar to fund new and existing transit routes and services. This amounts to $39 for every man, woman, and child. There’s a better way.

We Shouldn't Give Up Battle for Choice in American Schools

As published in The Dallas Morning News, September 11, 2001 Students have returned from their summer break blissfully unaware of the battles being fought on their behalf across the country. The fiercest and most critical of those battles is being fought over the future shape of our public education system. What is the truth about U.S. public education? It isn't a simple story, of course, but it is one where bad news still is the rule rather than the exception.

Welcome, Albeit Unsurprising, News in Microsoft Case

The Department of Justice has formally announced it will not seek a court-ordered break-up of Microsoft in the "remedy" phase of the antitrust case against the company. Nor will the DoJ pursue its claim that the inclusion of Internet Explorer in the Windows operating system is illegal. This announcement is evidence that sanity has been restored to the Justice Department, but does nothing to resolve the fundamental policy question raised by the suit: Should a consumer business that increases distribution, lowers prices, and offers laudable products be subject to prosecution?

Tax burden shifts to workers

BY Amy Gardner

As the General Assembly argues over the equity of different tax plans, one tax reality is not in dispute: The burden in North Carolina has been shifting steadily over the past decade to the paychecks of working people. That trend could continue this year, depending on which tax plan lawmakers ultimately choose.

Science texts awaiting approval are criticized Publishers defend books that groups say show political bias

BY Terrence Stutz

AUSTIN - Proposed science textbooks for Texas schools came under fire Thursday from dozens of critics who asserted the books are full of factual errors and political bias. Leading the attack were two conservative groups that objected to the books' attention to controversial topics such as global warming, acid rain and endangered species. "Classrooms are no place for fear mongering and the manipulation of students," said Peggy Venable of Texas Citizens for a Sound Economy, citing passages in some books that she maintained "frighten" students about global warming.

State told proposed textbooks biased, flawed

BY R.A. DYER

AUSTIN - The State Board of Education should reject several proposed middle-school textbooks, residents told the panel Thursday, because they contain factual errors and pro-environmentalist bias. The speakers, including representatives of the conservative Texas Public Policy Foundation and the Texas Citizens for a Sound Economy, said new science books for grades six, seven and eight unfairly portray the significance of acid rain, deforestation, global warming and other environmental issues.

Group insists science books be thrown out

BY JANET ELLIOTT

AUSTIN - Newly drafted middle-school science textbooks contain errors and exhibit a pro-environment bias, more than two dozen speakers told the State Board of Education on Thursday. The criticisms focused on the proposed textbooks' discussions of global warming, acid rain and rain forest destruction. Many of the speakers were affiliated with Texas Citizens for a Sound Economy, an advocacy and education organization dedicated to economic freedom.
