Citizen's Issue Summary: Public Lands

How Much Land Is Enough? The federal government owns nearly 30 percent of all land in the United States. Most of this public land is managed by four agencies: the Bureau of Land Management, the Forest Service, the Fish and Wildlife Service, and the National Park Service. This land is used for a variety of purposes, such as grazing, logging, mining, wildlife refuges, wilderness areas, and national parks. However, few people are happy with most of the government’s land management practices, which have damaged the environment and prevented the efficient use of resources. Despite these problems, there is talk in Washington of taking over even more land.

Citizen's Issue Summary: Global Warming

The Global Warming Hypothesis The greenhouse effect is a natural phenomenon that results from solar radiation being trapped by naturally occurring greenhouse gases — water vapor, carbon dioxide, methane, etc. As incoming heat from the sun warms the surface of the earth, the surface gives off heat that the gases trap and keep near ground level. The effect is similar to the way in which a greenhouse traps heat. This warming of the atmosphere is what makes life on earth possible.

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.

Citizen's Issue Summary: Acid Rain

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.
