Citizen's Issue Summary: Property Rights

Fact... Special interest groups have strongly resisted efforts to compensate property owners when government effectively “takes” their property through regulation. Such groups claim that reducing the value of property by regulation does not constitute a “taking,” only an actual seizure of property counts. They also claim that if government is forced to compensate property owners for regulatory takings, then environmental protection will become too costly. In addition, these groups claim that compensating property owners is nothing more than a taxpayer- funded bailout for people trying to destroy the environment.

What Is “Acid Rain”? The so-called “acid rain” issue has been used for many years to press for more regulations and restrictions on the activities of citizens throughout America. Alarmists claim that acid rain has wiped out fish in many lakes and streams, destroyed forests, ruined crops and buildings, and that it poses a serious threat to human health.

Capitol Comment 272 - Telecommunications Mergers: Who's on First?

Just when a glut of telecom mega-mergers has us wondering who's minding the antitrust store, along comes a report from a Justice Department commission recommending that the traditional antitrust authorities should take control of merger approval back from the Federal Communications Commission (FCC). What's up with that?

Building a Shareholder Democracy in America

It's great to be in New York. The financial capital of the world. The "capital of capital." The epicenter of economic exuberance. And it's great that we're talking about how we expand the opportunities and treasures of our economy to as many American workers as possible. About what kinds of policies can help enrich people's lives. Officially, this is a public pension gathering, but really this is a summit on wealth creation. I guess you could say that this, right here, right now, is Alan Greenspan's worst nightmare. Too much wealth!

Tech Bytes - Tid Bits in Tech News: The End of Rate-of-Return Regulation?

This week New Mexico Governor Gary Johnson signed into law two bills that will end rate-of-return regulation. This is good news. For the first time, telecommunications users in New Mexico will be treated as consumers rather than ratepayers. The distinction is more than fancy wordplay. Consumers use their own good sense to make choices about what combination of quality, level of service, and price suit their needs. Consumers are not forced by law to pay a particular price for a product or service, even if they don't like it.

Capitol Comment 269 - Pull the Plug on Unauthorized Spending

Republican House and Senate leaders are under tremendous pressure from Bill Clinton and many of their colleagues to bust the discretionary spending caps established by the 1997 balanced budget agreement. But the leadership has a weapon that, if they are willing to use it, could undermine many of Clinton’s pet initiatives while tempering the spending frenzy of their colleagues. All the leadership needs to do is enforce the congressional rules that prohibit spending money on unauthorized programs.
