Republicans will renew spending lid push

BY CHARLES E. BEGGS

SALEM, Ore. (AP) — Republicans will be back in charge of the Oregon House when the 2005 Legislature convenes on Jan. 10 — and they'll return with a plan to clamp a lid on state spending as a way to create a rainy day fund. The plan likely would involve asking voters to change the state's "kicker" law, which refunds money to taxpayers when revenue tops budget estimates. The GOP plan would divert extra money to a reserve pot, instead of into the kicker fund. When the pot was full, refunds to taxpayers could resume.

A 3-D Economic Illusion

Policymakers would do well to keep in mind a couple of universal truths when preparing to embark upon fundamental changes to long-standing programs and entrenched policies, such as creating personal retirement accounts and simplifying the federal tax code. One such truth is: What we don't know usually doesn't harm us nearly as much as what we think we know that isn't true.

South Carolina Senate Fact #12: Tenenbaum Would Spend Twice As Much

Candidate for South Carolina’s open U.S. Senate seat Inez Tenenbaum called “for an end to the overspending in Washington.” While she may tell the public she’s against runaway spending, an analysis of her policy proposals shows that she would increase spending by more than twice as much than her opponent Jim DeMint, according to a study by the National Taxpayers’ Union.

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.
