Small Business in America

The American preoccupation with small businesses is rooted in the raw entrepreneurial spirit and freedom associated with working for one’s self. This is true for the owners of small businesses and farms, as well as the employees of upstarts looking to capitalize on their firm’s potential for growth. Too often, government intervention that seeks to help these constituencies threatens the same values that give “small business” its romantic character.

Fine Wine and Good Economics

In Virginia last week, federal judge Richard L. Williams struck down the state’s archaic laws against purchasing wine and beer from other states as unconstitutional. Like many other states, Virginia has laws prohibiting out-of-state wineries from selling directly to Virginians, even though it is legal to buy and ship directly from a Virginian winery. The decision, which is on hold until the state can appeal, is an important reminder that states cannot pass laws to protect favored industries or special interests.

Impact Update 3.20

CSE Activists Lead Campaign to Limit Growth of Government in Florida On March 19, the Florida House of Representatives passed HJR 87, “The Limitation on State Appropriations Amendment,” to limit the growth of government to a sustainable level. Passage of this legislation was at the top of Florida CSE’s issue agenda for 2002. Introduced by State Representative Rob Wallace (R-Tampa), the bill would limit state spending to the previous year’s appropriation plus an adjustment for growth. The growth adjustment would be calculated with a simple formula that adds the growth of the Consumer Price Index (CPI) to Florida’s population growth. This new spending limit would take effect January 1, 2003 if State Representative Wallace’s amendment passes both houses of the state legislature and is approved by Florida voters in the November 2002 general election.

John Walker Lindh Glad he didn’t Miss Anything in MSFT Case

WASHINGTON – You would never know it by listening to Monday’s opening argument by the co-counsels for the nine angry states, but there has already been a trial, judgment, appeal, and settlement in the landmark U.S. v. Microsoft antitrust case. Microsoft has long since terminated nearly all of the business practices for which the appellate court upheld antitrust liability, and a consent decree is in place that would restrict Microsoft’s conduct for five years and establish a technical board to ensure that Microsoft provides developers with key programming information in an apt and timely fashion.

A Regulatory Budget?

Budget season has started in Washington. President Bush has submitted his budget to Congress, kicking off the annual scramble for federal dollars across the federal government. Amidst this flurry of activity surrounding the federal budget, a hearing was held last week in the House of Representatives to examine an often overlooked, yet significant, cost of government—regulation.

Regulatory Budget Congressional Testimony

EXCERPT: (Get full testimony in Word format) The notion that people make better decisions when they are accurately informed is a well-established principle of public policy. We have laws against deception, some of which I helped to enforce during the Reagan Administration (as chairman of the Federal Trade Commission, 1981-1985). The public’s outrage over the Enron debacle is driven in major part over the lack of truthfulness and candor about what was going on. Likewise, campaign finance reform is supported, at least in part, because many believe that reporting is slow, inaccurate, and incomplete. There’s no less need for accurate information and transparency when it comes to deliberations over ways in which the people’s representatives acquire command over individual citizens’ resources for public use.

This Week on the Hill

This week begins the annual government kabuki dance known as the budget process. Every year Congress develops a budgetary framework that is incorporated into a budget resolution. This budget resolution dictates how much of our hard earned money is to be spent on government programs and how much we may receive back in the form of tax relief.

On the Fritz

Few Senators or members of Congress are more pleased that no commercial activity or human action is outside the sphere of government control than Senator Ernest “Fritz” Hollings (D-S.C.). As Chairman of both the Senate Energy and Commerce Committee and the Senate Appropriations Subcommittee on Commerce, Justice, State, the Judiciary and Related Agencies, Sen. Hollings holds unrivaled power over American industry. Enjoying the perch from which he operates, Hollings fiercely opposes any action that would take authority away from government or do anything to undermine his considerable influence.
