BY Paul Davidson

The attorney general of North Carolina, one of the states suing Microsoft for antitrust violations, voiced doubts about the government's proposal to break up the company in an interview published Sunday. Meanwhile, prosecutors in court papers Monday blasted most of Microsoft's suggested changes to the breakup proposal, saying they would "frustrate and undermine" the plan. A federal judge is expected to accept the plan within days, after ruling in April that Microsoft used its Windows software monopoly to stifle competition.

No section of the tax code is more unfair and more dangerous to our entrepreneurial economy than the Death Tax. With rates as high as 55 percent, the death tax punishes people who build a successful business or farm and try to leave that legacy to their kids. Moreover, the Death Tax’s modest contributions to the federal Treasury are more than off set by its staggering impact on the U.S. economy. The reasons to terminate the death tax are simple:

Citizens' Group Questions Need for New Air Rules

Today the Texas Natural Resource Conservation Commission announced two measures intended to comply with U.S. Environmental Protection Agency (EPA) demands on air quality. First, the TNRCC selected the federal emissions standard for new cars, trucks, and SUVs instead of the more stringent California standard. Second, the Commission recommended that Austin, San Antonio, and Longview-Tyler-Marshall receive an "unclassifiable" designation under the EPA's 8-hour ozone rules, which have been struck down by the courts. The TNRCC could have recommended that these areas be considered in "non-attainment."
