Sharkman' to Appear at D.C. Press Conference on Patients' Bill of Rights

News Advisory: On June 26, Citizens for a Sound Economy's (CSE) "Sharkman" will appear at a press conference with CSE President Paul Beckner and Senators Phil Gramm (R-Texas), Kay Bailey Hutchison (R-Texas), and Tim Hutchinson (R-Ark.). The press conference is being held in the Senate Swamp to voice opposition to the Patients' Bill of Rights legislation in its current form. Sharkman will attend the press conference to continue his fight to end lawsuit abuse. Sharkman, who was interviewed extensively during the 2000 election season by all major networks and dozens of newspapers and radio stations, led the charge in 2000 to end lawsuit abuse. Because the Patients' Bill of Rights, in its current form, equates to nothing more than an invitation for trial lawyers to sue, Sharkman has decided to rejoin the fight to end lawsuit abuse. Who: Sharkman, CSE President Paul Beckner, and Senators Phil Gramm, Kay Bailey Hutchison and Tim Hutchinson What: Press conference opposing the current form of Patients' Bill of Rights legislation When: June 26, at 3 p.m. Where: Senate Swamp at the U.S. Capitol

Tech Bytes - Tid Bits in Tech News: More Deception From Tauzin-Dingell Opponents

There is a myth going around Capitol Hill that H.R. 1542, “Internet Freedom and Broadband Deployment Act” would repeal Section 251 of the Telecom Act of 1996. This bit of rhetoric, like much else that has come from opponents of this Tauzin-Dingell bill, is completely false.

County Sales Tax to Drop

BY George Andreassi

Several county residents urged the commissioners to go forward with the sales tax referendum and one came out against it. STUART - Martin County's sales tax will go down by 1 percent Jan. 1 as a result of a decision by county commissioners Tuesday to abandon plans to extend the sales tax for three years to pay for an ambitious $48 million building program. After a heated hourlong discussion, county commissioners voted 3-2 against going forward with a $180,000 referendum on the proposed sales tax extension.

Price Cap Truth Squad Set to Counter Gov. Gray Davis' Energy Rhetoric

News Advisory: Gov. Gray Davis (D-Calif.) is scheduled to testify before the Senate Government Affairs Committee regarding the ongoing energy crisis in California. Gov. Davis, following the advice of two former campaign advisers to Al Gore, has spent the last few months blaming President Bush for the heightening energy crisis in California. Experts from Citizens for a Sound Economy (CSE), in an effort to counter the misinformation, will be available outside of room 106 of the Dirksen Senate Office Building to comment on the energy crisis in California during Davis' appearance before the committee. "We must remember this energy crisis in California falls squarely on the shoulders of the state's chief executive officer. It's Gray Davis' fault," said Chad Cowan, director of communications for CSE. "It's unfortunate that Gov. Davis has chosen to come to Washington to continue the political blame game. He should be back in California, tending to the energy problems that plague California's families, problems he helped create." WHAT: The Price Cap Truth Squad Responds to Gov. Gray Davis WHO: The Price Cap Truth Squad (Patrick Burns, director of energy policy at CSE; Glenn Spencer, CSE energy policy analyst; Chad Cowan, CSE director of communications; and Stephen Flaherty, CSE director of campaign operations) WHEN: June 20, 9 a.m. WHERE: Room 106 of the Dirksen Senate Office Building For more information about CSE's positions on energy visit www.cse.org/informed/energy.html.
