This Week on the Hill

This week begins the annual government kabuki dance known as the budget process. Every year Congress develops a budgetary framework that is incorporated into a budget resolution. This budget resolution dictates how much of our hard earned money is to be spent on government programs and how much we may receive back in the form of tax relief.

On the Fritz

Few Senators or members of Congress are more pleased that no commercial activity or human action is outside the sphere of government control than Senator Ernest “Fritz” Hollings (D-S.C.). As Chairman of both the Senate Energy and Commerce Committee and the Senate Appropriations Subcommittee on Commerce, Justice, State, the Judiciary and Related Agencies, Sen. Hollings holds unrivaled power over American industry. Enjoying the perch from which he operates, Hollings fiercely opposes any action that would take authority away from government or do anything to undermine his considerable influence.

Washington Wants Your Money

Last month, President Bush submitted to Congress the administration’s proposed budget for Fiscal Year 2003. The events of last year have placed new strains and burdens on federal priorities, and the new budget again places the budget in deficit. The budget proposal includes increased expenditures on homeland security and the war on terrorism and an overall 6.5 percent increase in discretionary outlays. Despite the increased spending levels and the return to deficits, many in Congress are calling for even greater spending while criticizing President Bush’s tax cuts as being fiscally irresponsible. Yet recent history suggests that it is Congress’s profligate spending habits that need to be curbed.

Let’s Take a Bite Out of Lawsuit Abuse

We need to save our legal system from exploitation by an elite group of greedy trial lawyers. The House of Representatives can help make that happen today by passing the Class Action Fairness Act. We need to call our members of Congress today and let them know we want to give back our legal system to honest, decent Americans with real grievances.

O'REILLY FED UP WITH FUNDING WOES

BY BILL RUFTY

As the Legislature heads in to its next-to-last week of the session today -- in theory -- some of the things that won't get passed are coming to the surface and so is the anger from supporters. Polk County School Board member Frank O'Reilly said he is angry with House Speaker Tom Feeney and isn't going to take it anymore because of school money bills the speaker killed. O'Reilly, who switched to the Republican party two years ago because of the Clinton-Lewinsky affair, met with Democratic gubernatorial candidate Janet Reno when she toured schools last week.
