Group targets state budgeting

BY PETER WONG

A new coalition, consisting largely of conservative critics, wants to change how the Oregon Legislature puts together the two-year state budget. The New Budget Coalition counts members of the Republican, Libertarian and Constitution parties among its founders, as well as the Taxpayer Association of Oregon and FreedomWorks. Coalition spokesman Tom Cox of Hillsboro, Libertarian candidate for an Oregon House seat and its 2002 nominee for governor, said Democrats also will be sought.

Coalition launches drive for new state budget process

BY DAN HORTSCH

SALEM -- A coalition of Libertarians, tax activists and a pair of Republican legislators kicked off an effort Thursday to make the state budget process more transparent to taxpayers and to limit spending to actual revenue. The key, said Tom Cox, a Libertarian Party House candidate and former state party chairman, is a one-page budget to be passed by the House -- with spending details to come later.

Letter to Congress: Inject Market Forces into Govt Services

July 9, 2004 Dear Congressman, Competitive sourcing is vital to limiting the size of government. It allows the private sector to offer more cost-effective alternatives for those commercial jobs performed by bureaucrats. Just like in the real world, the highest-value service receives the contract. Regardless of whether the government continues to perform the service or a private company takes over, cost savings are achieved in the process and taxpayers can breathe a little easier.

Battling for Sensible Federal Budgets

June 22, 2004 Dear Representative, This week, you will be given the opportunity to vote on amendments to H.R. 3973, the Spending Control Act of 2004.

On behalf of the millions of taxpayers represented by the undersigned organizations, we urge you to vote the amendments listed below that would improve the enforcement measures of H.R. 3973.

Ersatz Congressional Budgeting

©2004 Copley News Service, 6/14/2004 It looks like Congress won't pass a budget this year. "So what?" you say, and rightfully so. The federal government will go on without interruption. As a former member of the House Budget and Appropriations Committees, I can say with some experience that congressional budgeting is playacting anyway, and all the political hand-wringing is just stagecraft. The ersatz congressional budget lacks the two defining characteristics of real budgeting: binding budget constraints and enforceable spending priorities.
