A Brief Explanation of the Kelo Decision

From an article in Parade magazine on eminent domain battles comes a brief explanation of what the furor is all about. “It’s a blatant example of reverse Robin Hood—taking homes from the poor and the middle-income and giving them to the rich,” says Scott Bullock, the IJ attorney who argued (and lost) Kelo.

Judge-Election Measure Makes Ballot

BY Brad Cain (AP)

Members of Oregon's two highest courts -- which currently are dominated by judges from the Portland area and the Willamette Valley -- would have to be elected by district rather than statewide under a measure that qualified Thursday for the Nov. 7 ballot. State election officials said there were 102,637 valid petition signatures for the proposal. Supporters needed 100,840 to send the measure to voters. It was the final measure to be certified by the state for the November ballot, meaning that Oregon voters will decide on 10 initiatives in the fall.

Europe vs. Microsoft

BY Matt Kibbe

In the latest regulatory broadside against American firms, the European Commission (EC) recently fined Microsoft $357 million despite the fact that the underlying case has yet to be resolved. When faced with world-class competition from American firms, the Europeans have made it clear that they will use their regulatory apparatus as a tool to shield weaker companies. Instead of competing the old-fashioned way -- by providing consumers what they want at the best price -- companies are turning to apparatchiks in the EU bureaucracy.

Wash Post Admits Vigorous Scientific Debate on Climate Change

This is from the editorial page of the Washington Post this morning. The major outstanding question about global warming is not whether adding large amounts of new carbon to the atmosphere will tend to increase temperatures further. It is how sensitive the climate will be to what mass of additional carbon over time -- and how bad the practical consequences of that sensitivity will be. On this point, there exists vigorous scientific debate.

Senate Passes Drilling Bill

Yesterday the Senate approved a bill to open Gulf of Mexico to oil and natural gas drilling, while natural gas prices soar 14% amidst this summer’s heat wave.  Although increased domestic production of oil will do little to change prices as barrels are sold in a global market of producers and consumers, opening up drilling off of America’s coasts could significantly impact natural gas prices.  This is because most of the nation’s demand for natural gas is met by domestic production, with the most of the rest coming from Canada through pipelines, and a tiny1-2% coming from liquefied natural gas from abroad.  A large increase in domestic supply would go a long way to making it easier to heat a home.

Ballot Initiative May Cost Schools Millions

BY Sasha Krader

The Oregon University System could be cut by 6 percent next year if voters approve a statewide tax break at the polls this November. The ballot initiative, which is sponsored by the national anti-tax organization Freedom Works, would cut most households' taxes by approximately $140 per person. It would also cut the state budget by approximately 6 percent a year, or more than $400 million annually by 2008. Currently, 58 percent of Oregon's personal income tax revenues go to schools and universities, which are ranked 46th in the nation for per-student funding.

Property Rights and Network Neutrality

BY Richard W. Rahn

Assume you have just purchased a large piece of property you intend to use for agricultural and recreational purposes. You decide the best place to build your house is about a mile from the main road, and the best place to build a driveway to your new house is along one of your property lines.
