Oregon Legislature Approves HB 3809 – Taking the Junk Science out of Salmon Recovery

Yesterday, the Oregon Legislature approved HB 3809, common-sense salmon recovery legislation aimed at ending the state’s wild fish bias. The bill has cleared both houses of the legislature and now moves on to Governor Kitzhaber. Russ Walker, director of Oregon Citizens for a Sound Economy, issued the following statement: "HB 3809 is common-sense legislation that will ensure that the Oregon Department of Fish and Wildlife stops ‘clubbing’ returning salmon to death, denying them the right to spawn and complete their lifecycles naturally.

Tech Bytes- Tid Bits in Tech News: The Aftermath of the Government's War on Software Consumers

Rarely is a 125-page Federal Appeals Court decision characterized as a breath of fresh air, but that is a fair depiction of the recent ruling in the Microsoft case. The decision teaches us that personal ambition and corporate envy are not powerful enough to eviscerate a private business.

Is Closing a Tax Loophole a Tax Increase?

Recently, Republicans in the state House have considered supporting a Senate budget proposal that would close certain tax loopholes to fund the state budget. Jonathan Hill, Director of North Carolina Citizens for a Sound Economy (NC CSE), issued the following statement on the Senate’s proposal:

Oregon Governor Kitzhaber Signs into Law SB 660, The Internet Tax Ban of 2001

Salem, OR -- After months of grassroots lobbying by Oregon Citizens for a Sound Economy (OR CSE) and its 9,000 dedicated activists, Governor Kitzhaber finally signed into law SB 660, the Internet Tax Ban of 2001. The original bill, authored by Oregon Citizens for a Sound Economy and sponsored by state Senator Jason Atkinson and Representative Bruce Starr, originally intended to ban all forms of Internet taxes, but the final bill only bans access taxes due to a threat by the governor to veto the bill if sales taxes were included in the bill’s language. OR CSE’s effort to ban Internet taxes cannot be understated, for it was and still is, the only organization to lead the ban against Internet taxes in the state in order to protect Oregon consumers, businesses, and its rural communities.

An Interest Rate Target With No Bulls-Eye

Copley News Service, 07/03/2001 It's disconcerting to hear calls for Japan to lower interest rates when its rate on overnight money already is virtually zero (actually 0.35 percent). Japan suffers from deflation that has depressed its economy and is helping drag down the world economy. Pushing interest rates below zero, however, is not the answer to Japan's problem. Do we expect Japanese banks to pay people to borrow money?

Motivations Behind Assault on Microsoft

BY Paul Beckner

A FEDERAL APPELLATE COURT'S reversal of the Microsoft breakup is great news for consumers. As Microsoft has argued all along, the court, in effect, agreed that the company had created a competitive product in a competitive market where new innovations were consistently introduced to millions of software users at little to no cost.

Your Money

BY Kathy M. Kristof

The big tax cut passed by Congress last month will put a few extra dollars in the pockets of most taxpayers, but it's a bust for anyone who wants to do long-term financial planning. The reason: Tax deductions and credits you count on today could be gone tomorrow. Within 10 years, so-called sunset provisions could wipe away every one of the 440 changes that the Economic Growth and Tax Relief Reconciliation Act of 2001 makes to the already voluminous tax code.
