CSE Disappointed with European Commission for Targeting Microsoft

Citizens for a Sound Economy (CSE) is disappointed with the European Commission’s decision to move forward with a ruling that Microsoft is in violation of European antitrust laws. The actions by European Competition Commissioner Mario Monti and the European Commission unfairly target Microsoft and discourage innovation in the high tech sector. Microsoft is being punished for its success in providing the software products that European consumers demand. Despite the fact that there has been no demonstration of consumer harm, negotiations failed this week and a formal ruling against Microsoft is expected next week. The European Commission appears more intent on coddling Microsoft’s competitors rather than considering the interests of European consumers and the concept of regulatory fairness in European markets. The U.S. and Europe need to work on removing barriers to trade, and this ruling is another step backwards.

N.C. leaders must stand up to Navy and halt landing strip plan

BY Editorial

Since 1985, the United States Air Force alone has recorded more than 38,000 bird-aircraft strikes. As a result of those strikes, 33 people died, 30 aircraft were lost and more than $450 million in equipment damage was sustained. You'd think numbers like that would cause the Navy to think twice before locating a landing field in a place that will require pilots to fly within a mile of, and maybe over, a national wildlife refuge where tens of thousands of migrating birds spend their winters.

NC Call to Action: State Legislature Must Call for OLF Special Session

Unless the North Carolina legislature acts immediately, the U.S. Navy will begin to seize private property in Beaufort and Washington counties to build an outlying landing field (OLF). Under the current plan, the Navy will acquire 32,000 acres of prime farmland owned by families whom have farmed their fields for generations. Many citizens, the majority of whom are seniors, will lose their generational homes. Send an Email to Your State Senator and Rep.

Bipartisan OLF forces build

BY BILL SANDIFER

The circuits are buzzing at the grassroots level among opponents fighting construction of a Navy outlying landing field in Washington County. Despite some acrimony following Gov. Mike Easley's rejection of calls for a special legislative session, there were no signs on Tuesday of a slowdown at ground zero.

Room for One More Rulemaking Think Tank?

BY Cindy Skrzycki

There is the Center for Regulatory Effectiveness, the AEI-Brookings Joint Center for Regulatory Studies, the Mercatus Center at George Mason University, the Cato Institute, Citizens for a Sound Economy, the Heritage Foundation, and the Center for Progressive Regulation. Not to mention the lawyers and academics who delve into the regulatory fine print for a living, churning out policy papers, books and research. Does Washington need another regulatory think tank?

Breaking the Regulatory Stranglehold

While tax and trade policy have been in the news lately, Americans businesses face a daunting regulatory burden as well. Although less publicized, regulatory excess can impose real constraints on economic growth. Tax cuts can go far in providing the private sector the resources necessary to boost investment and create new jobs; however, regulations can create a choke point that deters these investments.

U.S. Dept. of Labor Forces Union Disclosure

Summary In December 2002, the Department of Labor proposed regulatory changes that would protect union members by improving transparency and disclosure. The proposal would modernize the annual financial reports unions file with the Office of Labor-Management Standards (OLMS). These reports are required under the 1959 Labor Management Reporting and Disclosure Act, often referred to as the Landrum-Griffin Act. During the public comment period, the Department received more than 35,000 comments and carefully considered all of them during the crafting of the final rule.
