Tax Protest Comes to Raleigh

BY Scott Mooneyham

A year after lawmakers approved a $440 million tax hike, protesters gathered across from the Legislative Building on Monday determined to stop another increase. "We don't have a budget crisis. We have a spending crisis. It's an addition to spending," Jonathan Hill, state director of the anti-tax group Citizens for a Sound Economy, told about 175 people. The protest was the 17th stop in a series of 22 "Tar Heel Tea Parties" held around the state. The events are being organized by CSE and the conservative John Locke Foundation.

Bushwhacking Microsoft: The Economic Impact

Glenn Yago is the Director of Capital Studies at the Milken Institute. He is a consultant to Microsoft. The remedy proposed by the litigating states in U.S. v. Microsoft1 would require drastic changes in marketing and design practices that were not found to be anticompetitive by the Circuit Court of Appeals for the District of Columbia. More important, it would undermine both Microsoft’s ability and its incentives to produce software that consumers value.

CSE Grabs the Attention of the Media Earlier this week, CSE President Paul Beckner’s commentary on the upcoming battle over Social Security reform was featured in the Washington Times. In his commentary, Paul warns conservatives about the Left’s plan to scare senior citizens this fall. Texas CSE’s efforts in opposition to Lieutenant Governor Bill Ratcliff’s proposed statewide property tax received the attention of the Dallas Morning News, Houston Chronicle, and the Fort Worth Star-Telegram. In addition, the Austin American-Statesman’s lead editorial on April 4, criticized CSE for successfully blocking liberal bias in Texas’ textbooks. We appreciate the recognition.

A Chance for Parents to Pick What their Kids Learn

Parents of public schoolchildren, pay attention. Special-interest groups are gearing up to select your children's history, geography and economics textbooks. Some of these groups support initiatives such as vouchers, which would divert money from your children's public schools. And those same groups want to narrow your schools' choices of textbooks.

Ratliff Details Proposal for Statewide School Tax

BY Terrence Stutz

AUSTIN - Acting Lt. Gov. Bill Ratliff on Wednesday pitched a plan to retool the state's education funding system by replacing local property taxes for schools with a new statewide property tax. The proposal would initially set a statewide tax rate of $ 1.40 per $ 100 of property valuation for all residential and business property in Texas. Revenues would be distributed among all 1,040 school districts based on enrollment and other factors.

School Financing Proposal Unveiled

BY R. A. Dyer

AUSTIN - Texas property owners would pay a statewide property tax of $1.40 per $100 assessed value to finance the $24 billion public school system under a plan unveiled Wednesday by acting Lt. Gov. Bill Ratliff. The proposal, which would require passage by the Legislature in 2003 and a statewide vote to amend the Texas Constitution, would abolish the authority of the state's 1,040 local districts to assess some - but not all - property taxes.

Ratliff Wants Statewide Property Tax In Lieu of Local levy

BY Janet Elliot

AUSTIN - Replacing local property taxes with a statewide levy would provide a more equitable means of funding public schools, Lt. Gov. Bill Ratliff said Wednesday. "The reason it becomes more equitable is all taxpayers would pay the same state property tax rate," said Ratliff, author of the 1993 "share-the-wealth" school finance plan. Ratliff would have the Legislature levy a statewide property tax of $ 1.40 per $ 100 of a property's assessed value. The money would be distributed to districts on a per-pupil basis.

Ralliers Urge State to Cut Spending, Not Raise Taxes

BY Todd Volkstorf

The idea that North Carolinians are overly and unfairly taxed drew about 65 people to an anti-tax rally Wednesday evening at Wilmington City Hall. "It's not a budget crisis. It's a spending crisis," said Jonathan Hill, director of Citizens for a Sound Economy, referring to why the state has a projected $ 900 million budget deficit. Supporters, armed with anti-tax posters and propaganda, lined the aluminum bleachers in place for the Azalea Festival Parade. Rush hour motorists continuously honked their horns at the crowd, as their posters urged.
