Officials want leeway to meet clean-air rules

BY ERIC HANSON

Common sense, solid science and economic reality should all play a role in developing solutions to reduce air pollution in the Houston area. That was the consensus voiced by five members of the U.S. House of Representatives, the county judges of Brazoria, Fort Bend and Montgomery counties and others at a recent meeting concerning clean-air issues. Houston is under a federal mandate to reduce emissions by 2007.

CSE Applauds President ForFirst Budget Submission

President George W. Bush has submitted the first budget of his Presidency, outlining his plans for the future of our country. CSE congratulates the President on his foresight and compassion for putting forth a budget that not only struggles to limit the ever expanding size of the federal government while increasing funding for federal priorities, but also to provides much needed tax relief to taxpayers! "This budget represents exactly why the American people put President Bush in office," said CSE President Paul Beckner, President of CSE, "It combines a limited amount of increased spending, the right amount of debt reduction and finally much needed tax relief. The president’s budget will ensure long term economic growth and prosperity."

Tech Bytes- Tid Bits in Tech News: Jack Valenti's Growth Engine

In Senate testimony last week, Jack Valenti, chief executive for the Motion Picture Association of America, described the entertainment industry as an "economic growth engine" that is "the envy of the known world." Threats to copyright should be rejected by the Senate, argues Valenti, because they would endanger the "economic and creative prize" that is the entertainment industry. Valenti argues that without copyright, America will "squander our creative future" as private risk capital for international ventures evaporates.

Mentoring program one solution to cutting teacher shortage

BY Jason Embry

Liz DeLoach kept Lily Dungan from quitting her job. Dungan, a first-year teacher at Waco's Doris Miller Elementary School, wept just days into the start of school last August. She believed she could not handle the constant talking and frequent skirmishes among her fourth-grade students. But DeLoach, who has taught 11 years, assured her a little classroom chatter was not the end of the world. She reminded Dungan that teachers themselves are hardly silent during school faculty meetings.

Panel's tax plan trims fat

BY Wade Rawlins

A commission appointed by Gov. Mike Easley to study tax loopholes and government cost-saving measures delivered a list of tax code changes Friday that eventually would produce more than $ 200 million a year in revenue and possibly millions more in savings. The Commission on Efficiency and Loophole Closing also shifted some of the pain of the tax changes away from consumers and back to corporations, rewriting an earlier list of recommendations that would have saddled individuals with more of the new taxes.

Campaign finance inflation

BY Rah Bickley

Raleigh old-timers remember when it cost only $ 5 to file to run for City Council. Actually, relative newcomers probably remember, too, because that is how much it cost until Tuesday. That is when the Raleigh City Council voted to increase the filing fee to $ 100 for candidates for mayor and council. Requiring candidates to spend more than they would for a burger and fries should produce a more thoughtful stable of office-seekers, said Councilman John Odom.
