People in attendance stated that now is not the right time to increase taxes and therefore, the county should wait until the economy rebounds.

CSE Urges YES Vote On H.R. 1115, The “Class Action Fairness Act”

The 280,000 members of Citizens for a Sound Economy (CSE) urge the U.S. House of Representatives to vote YES on H.R. 1115, the "Class Action Fairness Act of 2003." Today, trial lawyers are using a handful of compliant state courts to fleece businesses with class action lawsuits. These state court "hotspots" are routinely ignoring economic facts while granting massive awards. Consumers and the economy pay the costs of these expensive decisions, while trial lawyers end up collecting enormous financial windfalls.

Congress Should Rein in Rogue Federal Prosecutors

©2003 Copley News Service, 6/11/2003 Using a little-known federal statute (Title 18, Section 1001 of the U.S. Code), federal prosecutors are threatening to send Martha Stewart to jail for lying to government officials and for publicly declaring her innocence of insider trading even though the government refuses to charge her with the actual crime of insider trading. That's outrageous.

California Dreamin’

While California is often an example of what not to do, they do have one law that is particularly worthy of envy: a 2/3 supermajority vote is required to raise taxes. The requirement is especially important this year, as California struggles with massive budget deficit of $38.2 billion—the legacy of an incredible run-up in spending in the late 1990s. The requirement of a 2/3rds supermajority by the California Constitution protects state taxpayers from government’s natural instinct to raise taxes instead of cut waste and extravagant spending.

Confirmed Case of SARS Reported in North Carolina

A man who visited Toronto in mid-May contracted severe acute respiratory syndrome, or SARS, the state Department of Health and Human Services said Monday. It is the eighth confirmed case of SARS in the United States. The man was identified Friday as having a probable case of the illness. Test results from the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention confirmed the diagnosis, DHHS spokeswoman Carol Schriber said. The man, a resident of Orange County whose name was withheld, developed a fever and respiratory problems after his trip, DHHS said in a news release. His condition is improving as he recovers in isolation at home; none of his family, also quarantined at home, has shown any symptoms. None of his co-workers or other acquaintances have been quarantined, she said. State health officials are working with authorities in Canada to trace the source of his infection, she said. Officials here have gotten in touch with all they people they believe may have been exposed to the man while his condition was infectious, she said. The state already had eight "suspected" cases of the disease as defined by criteria set by the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention. N.C. Agriculture Department veteran says he'll eye fair contract
