Kelo Anniversary

BY Joyce Krawiec

This past week marked the one-year anniversary of a devastating Supreme Court decision that dramatically eroded private property rights across America. The case, Kelo v. New London, expands government’s eminent domain power and has sparked a flurry of new property seizures by local governments. Fortunately, the outcome of the case is also spurring state legislatures to write into law new protections to reduce the effects of the decision. Unfortunately, much more still needs to be done to safeguard private property rights.

Gov. Kaine's Tax Hike Proposal Fails

Virginia Governor Tim Kaine was elected in November partly by assuring voters he wouldn't raise taxes like his predecessor Mark Warner had in 2004: "I'm not going to be in for tax increases because we did it in 2004 and we're going to have to live within our means." But that promise didn't last long as Kaine proposed a $1 billion tax increase to pay for an expensive transportation project despite a state budget surplus of $1.5 billion.

Finance Committee Votes to Repeal Century Old Tax

Yesterday the Senate Finance Committee voted to end the century old telephone excise tax.  The tax was originally levied in 1898 as a way to pay for the Spanish-American War by placing a charge on phone calls.  The bill, which also includes a moratorium on some Internet taxes, has yet to be voted on by the full Senate.  If repealed, consumers could save $7billion over the next ten years.  Hopefully we will soon stop paying for a war that ended over a century ago.  Click here to read more.

Net Neutrality Shot Down in Senate

In an 11-11 vote, the Senate Commerce Committee rejected the proposed addition of a net neutrality amendment to a wide-ranging broadband bill as it goes to the Senate floor. Another win in the battle against government regulation of the internet!
