Senate Leader, in Surprise Move, Opens Debate on Estate Tax Repeal

BY Carl Hulse

The majority leader Tom Daschle abruptly opened Senate debate today on a Republican plan to repeal the estate tax permanently, complicating lobbying efforts by those on both sides of the issue. With just a few hours notice, the Democratic leadership initiated debate on a proposal to rescind the tax as of 2010. Under tax cuts adopted last year, the value of assets exempted from the tax would be gradually increased until 2010, and then the tax would be eliminated for one year before it returned to 2001 levels.

Legislating Trust

If, as Senator Phil Gramm (R-Tex.) has said, the Enron scandal is no longer a “feeding frenzy” that impels legislative action, perhaps the spate of scandals that have emerged since Enron’s collapse – Global Crossing, Tyco, Adelphia Communications, CMS Energy, Williams, WorldCom, Reliant – will cause enough turmoil in the financial markets to cause Congress to act. After all, everyday the market continues to underperform is another day the baby boomers must put off retirement. And as the oldest of the “me” generation approach 60, the political impetus for political solutions to the equity decline will be palpable.

Spending Moves Forward While Tax Cuts Languish

As the number of days in the legislative calendar dwindle, the priorities of Congress become more apparent. Not surprisingly, efforts to boost spending are far more prominent than attempts to lower taxes. While the long-term survival of President Bush’s tax cuts remains in question, the Senate has approved an emergency supplemental spending bill for 2002 of $31.5 billion—almost $5 billion more than the administration had requested. The difference is largely highway spending and other pork related items. Despite highly publicized hand wringing over the return to deficit spending, Congress is a creature of habit; tax cuts have fallen by the wayside as politicians push spending levels ever higher.

The Bush Tax Cut Turns One

This Week – This week’s big news revolves around the Bush Administration’s Friday announcement. The President recommended the creation of a whole new cabinet level office to be known as the Homeland Security Department. This has sent the entire Hill aflutter as everyone struggles to protect his or her turf and hopefully grab a new piece of the Homeland Security pie. The House Government Reform Committee kicks off the festivities with a few hearings this week. Since the new Department will have a broad reach, it is expected that Congress will take many months and that almost every Committee will want a piece of the action.

Armstrong Re-Energizes Local Charitable Giving

BY Tim Mekeel

With two young children at home and a wife who works the night shift, Mike Campion had been struggling to find a way to do some volunteer work. After some serious schedule-juggling, he was able to donate his time and talent this spring to help renovate the basement of Harb-Adult's downtown building. "It was bugging me that I hadn't been able to do this before," said Campion, an electrician at Armstrong World Industries. But his sense of satisfaction grew considerably when he learned that he could increase his impact without installing another light switch.
