Textbook Publishers Learn: Avoid Messing With Texas

BY Alexander Stille

"Out of Many," the work of four respected historians, is one of the biggest sellers among American history college textbooks in the United States, but it is not likely to be available to Texas high school students taking advanced placement history. Conservative groups in Texas objected to two paragraphs in the nearly 1,000-page text that explained that prostitution was rampant in cattle towns during the late 19th century, before the West was fully settled.

Medicaid and Prescription Drug Talking Points

North Carolina cannot solve its Medicaid crisis and close the state budget shortfall by limiting the price and availability of prescription drugs. Indeed, Medicaid spending has grown by over 85 percent over the past decade and now threatens to explode the budget of the state and its counties. However, to address this problem by limiting access to the most cost-effective medical therapy available, prescription drugs, is to miss the point entirely. North Carolina should work to reform Medicaid by eliminating waste, fraud, and abuse.

Empower America Applauds Supreme Court Ruling In Historic School Choice Case

Today the United States Supreme Court made history. It ruled on the most important education case since Brown v. Board of Education. In its ruling, the right of children in Cleveland to attend schools that offer a quality education, and the right of parents elsewhere to have a choice in the education of their children, were upheld.

Statement of Empower America Co-Director William J. Bennett On the Supreme Court's Decision In Pottawatomie County v. Earls

Today the United States Supreme Court held that testing students engaged in extracurricular activities for drug use does not violate the Fourth Amendment. Not only is this decision consistent with the Court's 1995 decision upholding drug testing for student-athletes, it is the correct decision, both constitutionally and for the good of students across America. As Justice Thomas put it in the majority opinion, "this policy reasonably serves the school district's important interest in detecting and preventing drug use among its students."

Coalition Applauds Introduction of New Jersey Auto Insurance Competition and Choice Act

The Coalition for Auto Insurance Competition applauded today's introduction of legislation to restore competition to the state's auto insurance market. "This bill is an important achievement toward modernizing the state's auto insurance laws and placing New Jersey in the mainstream of state regulation of auto insurance," said John Friedman, the Coalition's chairman. "The state's auto insurance marketplace is unstable and dysfunctional, requiring immediate reform that instills more company competition and more choices for consumers."

Policy Derailment

This week, Congress is expected to give Amtrak an emergency $210 million loan to keep the floundering passenger rail monopoly out of bankruptcy. Although unfortunate for both taxpayers and intercity rail passengers, this expected development is illustrative of not only how indiscriminately policymakers spend tax dollars, but also how short-term solutions aimed at protecting special interests take precedence over comprehensive policy initiatives.
