House Takes Up Energy Proposal

BY Joan Lowy Scripps

WASHINGTON -- With the environment shaping up to be a key issue in next year 's midterm election, lawmakers are under pressure to lean green when the House takes up President Bush's energy plan this week. The package of bills that will be brought to the floor by House GOP leaders emphasizes greater energy production and reliance on fossil fuels as opposed to the alternative energy sources and greater energy efficiency favored by environmentalists.

Sheriff Misses His Cowboy Boots

BY Joanna Kakissis

Wake County Sheriff John Baker, hospitalized since Tuesday for a flare-up of gout, went home Friday. He answered the phone, gruff but upbeat, and revealed that his most pressing problem in the coming days will be what to wear. Baker, a former professional football player and the state's longest-serving sheriff, is a man of habit. Every day, he slips on blue or black suits to wear to work. Black cowboy boots complete the ensemble.

Normand Joins Field of Hopefuls for Governor

BY John DiStaso

On your scorecard of possible candidates for governor in 2002, pencil in a third Democrat. Manchester attorney James Normand, a former state executive councilor, confirmed yesterday that he is "looking very seriously" at running for governor next year in case Gov. Jeanne Shaheen decides not to seek a fourth term. He joins state Sens. Beverly Hollingworth of Hampton and Mark Fernald of Sharon on the current Democratic list of those actively eyeing the corner office. (see related story, Page A7.)

Black Ponders Risk on Tax Plan

BY Wade Rawlins

House Speaker Jim Black on Thursday weighed whether to risk bringing a proposed $ 440 million tax package before the full House next week while Republicans organized opposition to defeat the proposal. Black, a Democrat from Matthews, said he'll decide by the time lawmakers return Monday night whether to bring up the tax-increase package for a floor vote or include it with the budget. If he makes it part of the budget, lawmakers would have to vote against the entire budget to vote against the tax increase.

Capitol Comment 298: Expanding Children’s Education Opportunities

State and federal policymakers alike are responding to calls from parents, taxpayers, and scholars to improve education by putting an end to the "one-size-fits-all" approach that most states currently use. Different states are taking different approaches to the issue.

Locke Weighs Fourth Session

BY Jim Camden

The Legislature will likely be called back to Olympia to deal yet again with transportation problems. But it may only be asked to give local communities a way to handle their problems without a statewide hike in the gas tax, Gov. Gary Locke said Thursday. The day after the Legislature's third special session dissolved in a round of partisan recriminations, Locke said there was a commitment to return for at least a partial fix.

Olympia Gridlock

BY David Ammons

Never mind. Remember all that talk about transportation being the No. 1 issue of the year in Olympia? How they were going to come up with a bipartisan solution and lift the issue above political gridlock and campaign-style rancor? Well, it didn't happen. It went splat, a dispiriting coda to lawmakers' most deflating, discouraging, discombobulating session in a long, long time. And the ugly and personal way it imploded left scars on the institution that will be hard to heal.
