County Sales Tax to Drop

BY George Andreassi

Several county residents urged the commissioners to go forward with the sales tax referendum and one came out against it. STUART - Martin County's sales tax will go down by 1 percent Jan. 1 as a result of a decision by county commissioners Tuesday to abandon plans to extend the sales tax for three years to pay for an ambitious $48 million building program. After a heated hourlong discussion, county commissioners voted 3-2 against going forward with a $180,000 referendum on the proposed sales tax extension.

Price Cap Truth Squad Set to Counter Gov. Gray Davis' Energy Rhetoric

News Advisory: Gov. Gray Davis (D-Calif.) is scheduled to testify before the Senate Government Affairs Committee regarding the ongoing energy crisis in California. Gov. Davis, following the advice of two former campaign advisers to Al Gore, has spent the last few months blaming President Bush for the heightening energy crisis in California. Experts from Citizens for a Sound Economy (CSE), in an effort to counter the misinformation, will be available outside of room 106 of the Dirksen Senate Office Building to comment on the energy crisis in California during Davis' appearance before the committee. "We must remember this energy crisis in California falls squarely on the shoulders of the state's chief executive officer. It's Gray Davis' fault," said Chad Cowan, director of communications for CSE. "It's unfortunate that Gov. Davis has chosen to come to Washington to continue the political blame game. He should be back in California, tending to the energy problems that plague California's families, problems he helped create." WHAT: The Price Cap Truth Squad Responds to Gov. Gray Davis WHO: The Price Cap Truth Squad (Patrick Burns, director of energy policy at CSE; Glenn Spencer, CSE energy policy analyst; Chad Cowan, CSE director of communications; and Stephen Flaherty, CSE director of campaign operations) WHEN: June 20, 9 a.m. WHERE: Room 106 of the Dirksen Senate Office Building For more information about CSE's positions on energy visit www.cse.org/informed/energy.html.

DuPage Hears Energy Plan

BY Stacy St. Clair

Gasoline prices may have dropped, but that doesn't mean the energy crisis is over - nor that we should abandon efforts to make the United States less dependent on outside sources of oil, a Bush Cabinet member told an audience Monday in DuPage County. Energy Secretary Spencer Abraham, during a question-and-answer session with 200 suburban residents at Argonne National Laboratory near Darien, acknowledged this spring's energy problems had somewhat subsided.

Bush Polls Apart from Clinton In Use of Marketing

BY Bill McAllister

WASHINGTON - Bill Clinton's presidency often was driven by public opinion polls. Now, there is a president in the White House who will be concerned about 'marketing.' That was the word that Andrew H. Card, President Bush's chief of staff, used repeatedly when he talked to a group of reporters last week about how the 43rd president has organized the White House.

Governor Perry Vetoed a Record 78 Bills

From 1995 through 1998, while the cost of legal services in the United States rose more than 14 percent (source: U.S. Dept of Labor), insurer legal defense costs, per case, actually decreased 1 percent. While verdicts generally have risen between 8 percent and 10 percent each year, insurance companies have contained the inflation on the amount they paid to plaintiffs on their litigated cases to a total of less than 4 percent over four years!
