Grow Florida's Economy Not Florida's Government

The citizens of Florida have been hit hard by the current recession. Many people have lost jobs as business struggle to make ends meet. The Florida legislature should not compound the problem by backing a broad-based tax increase at a time when our economy is sluggish. Senator John McKay has made a proposal that would do just that - raise taxes! Worse, it seeks to shift the tax burden from tourists to the engine of Florida's economic growth : private enterprise.

Enron Needed a Level Playing Field

BY JASON M. THOMAS

While it is no perversion of language to describe Enron's collapse as a scandal, it is difficult, if not impossible, to identify any political dimension to the scandal or any course of action elected officials can take to ameliorate the situation. With a criminal investigation and numerous class-action civil suits underway, congressional investigations will do little more than earn headlines and provide a platform for political mudslinging and irresponsible charges.

Emissions plan seen as lacking

BY JANET ELLIOTT

AUSTIN - Environmental groups were disappointed Friday by the Texas Natural Resource Conservation Commission's decision to endorse a program of voluntary reductions in greenhouse gas emissions. "We're disappointed they did not go further," said Tom "Smitty" Smith of Public Citizen, one of the environmental groups that petitioned the commissioners to inventory greenhouse gases and encourage reductions in carbon dioxide emissions. Smith said the agency should have set "meaningful targets or goals" for emission reductions.

Environmentalists say emissions plan lacking

The Texas Natural Resource Conservation Commission's endorsement of a voluntary greenhouse gas emission reduction plan on Friday has left some environmental groups disappointed. Tom "Smitty" Smith, director of Texas' chapter of Public Citizen, said TNRCC should have demanded "meaningful targets or goals" for emission reductions. "We're disappointed they did not go further," Smith told the Houston Chronicle for its Saturday editions.

North Carolina CSE: Fighting to Repeal River Buffer Legislation that Violates Private Property Rights

The preservation of our liberty depends in part on our ability to preserve our property rights. That is why the issue that most seriously jeopardizes our liberty is the river buffers issue. New legislation enacted in 2001 temporarily limits Catawba River Basin property owners' use of their land that falls into a "buffer zone" - a 50-foot strip of undeveloped land that surrounds rivers, lakes, or streams. Under the new regulation, property owners are prohibited, or severely limited as to how this buffer zone may be used. Farming, grazing, or adding on to a property owner's land within the buffer zone is either strictly regulated or altogether prohibited. In 2003, a vote will be taken to permanently enforce the temporary buffer zones within the Catawba River basin.

TAX INCREASES NOT NEEDED TO BALANCE BUDGET

BY J.L. WILSON

Summary: The Oregon Legislature needs to understand that citizens and businesses will suffer With Oregon's economy slumping to levels not seen in 20 years, any tax increases passed in the upcoming special session of the Legislature will serve only to slow Oregon's recovery, not fix its budget problems. Gov. John Kitzhaber outlined last week how deep cuts will be if no other revenue is identified. But tax increases aren't needed.

District needs more competition for Comcast

BY JASON THOMAS

The Jan. 16 Business story "Comcast increasing D.C.-area rates" is an indication of another reason why the Justice Department and Federal Communications Commission (FCC) should quickly approve the pending merger of EchoStar and DirecTV. This merger will free up valuable spectrum space so that the new entity will be able to offer more channels at a cost that is comparable to, or better than, that of cable television.
