Lawmakers may have notched speed record

BY CHARLES E. BEGGS

Even for Oregon's notoriously unpredictable Legislature, 13 minutes is something of a record. But that's how long a would-be special session lasted Tuesday, before House Republicans gave up the ghost. It was quite a change from 2003, when legislators met for a record-setting 227 days to try and plug the state's yawning budget gap, and from 2002, when they convened for no less than five special sessions between January and October.

The Cost of Uncertainty

©2004 Copley News Service, 5/18/2004 Since enactment of the Bush "supply-side" tax-rate reductions, economic news has been almost singularly positive, despite the fact that we have been fighting a war. For months, the only economic indicator that didn't show conclusive signs of progress was the payroll employment numbers, but now that, too, has changed. During the last three quarters, real GDP has grown at its fastest rate in nearly 20 years - since Ronald Reagan was re-elected in a landslide - growing at an annualized rate of 5.5 percent.

There has been an ongoing discussion, and at times a heated debate, regarding the proper accounting treatment for employee stock options granted by American companies. The attached paper is one of the most interesting discussions we have found on the subject addressing this important topic. The white paper is authored by Kip Hagopian, a friend of many years of Jack Kemp and our chairman, Floyd Kvamme. For those interested in a thorough discussion of the issues at hand, we would highly recommend this paper to you. We have also posted a condensed version but suggest the full paper if your time permits.

Paving the Road with Pork

With all the tough talk about reigning in federal spending and restoring fiscal responsibility to the federal government coming from Capitol Hill lately, it would seem legislators are serious about limiting the size of government and cutting wasteful spending in all ways possible. However, actions speak louder than words and lately, the actions have been expensive and wasteful.

Cutting Spending and Living to Tell About It

This report was published on March 22, 2004 by The Heritage Foundation. EXCERPT: "Conventional wisdom has long held that voters punish politicians who cut government spending. Politicians fear that they will be labeled uncaring, lose friends, and maybe even lose their jobs if they try to scale back the size of government, even for the sake of balancing a budget.
