E-Rate: Prepared Statement of Kent Lassman before the Committee on the Judiciary, U.S. House of Representatives

"It is my … hope and aspiration that all of us … may eventually be gathered together in a heaven of everlasting rest and peace and bliss - except the inventor of the telephone." - Mark Twain, circa 1878 Introduction After more than 120 years, if a single improvement could be made to Twain’s curmudgeonly comment it would be the word "taxation." Let us all gather together … except for the inventor of telephone taxation.

Capitol Comment 258 - Truth about Texas' Environmental Progress Lost in Election Politics

TACC Attack. On October 19, a coalition of 44 of groups launched a coordinated media attack on Gov. George Bush’s environmental record. Dubbing themselves the "Texas Air Crisis Campaign," the group issued a 12-page report that purported to show a dramatic worsening of air quality during Bush’s tenure as governor. The report was quickly picked up by media outlets, which dutifully repeated TACC’s message.

Capitol Comment 257 - Smart Growth? Not in My Backyard

As the vilification of "urban sprawl" reaches ever-louder decibels, "smart growth" has been held out as the answer to concerns about our quality of life. Smart growth, though not clearly defined even by its supporters, generally consists of several proposals: "in-fill," which means channeling growth towards existing urban areas, "clustered" development, in which tightly grouped homes are surrounded by large areas of open space, greatly expanded commuter rail systems, and high density development.

Capitol Comment 256 - Schizophrenic Health Care Reformers

The House of Representatives passed tax breaks to make health insurance more affordable on October 7 – then followed up with a law to make it more expensive on October 8. This isn’t the only instance where politicians are ‘reforming’ at cross-purposes. Consider their schizophrenic stands on managed care and Medicare reform. Causing people to lose their insurance contradicts the whole notion of patients' rights.

Issue Analysis 96 - School Choice: Issues and Answers

Americans are free to make decisions about their health, education, and welfare. We can choose what to eat, how to exercise, whom to marry, where to worship, and which candidate deserves our vote. Students can use federal financial aid to attend the college of their choice – even a seminary! But most Americans have little ability to choose how or where their children will be educated during their most critical formative years.

I-695: Is The Sky Really Falling? … Or Big Business, Big Labor, Chicken Little

As a former elected official, I would suggest anything that makes a majority of the politicians scream bloody murder is probably a good thing. I-695 is fairly simple. It would reduce the tax we all pay for our car tabs to $30. Additionally, it would require a vote of the people any time state or local politicians want to raise taxes or fees. Hence the screaming.
