New GAO Report Raises Questions about Cable Re-Regulation

On Friday, October 24th, the General Accounting Office (GAO) released a study, “Telecommunications: Issues Related to Competition and Subscriber Rates in the Cable Television Industry” (GAO 03-1033) that should give pause to those seeking to re-regulate the industry. “The GAO warns of the unintended consequences of government policies to force prices lower, and notes that promoting competition in an open market may be the best course for the future,” said Paul Beckner, president of Citizens for a Sound Economy.

States facing stiff opposition to tax increases

BY Elbert Aull

By late in the evening of Sept. 9, residents of Alabama - historically one of the least-taxed states in the nation - knew they had voted down a $1.2 billion tax increase by a 2-to-1 margin. Just over a week earlier, thousands of miles away, Oregon lawmakers learned that a recently approved $800 million tax increase was facing obliteration in a petition drive.

Reps. DeMint and Hall Introduce Bipartisan Tax Reform Legislation

T R A C ACT Tax Reform Action Commission Bill Summary The case for reforming the current tax system has been well established. A number of good solutions have been proposed including the flat tax, the sales tax, and others. However, there is no agreement on how to move forward with reform. It is time to put tax reform on track. The TRAC Act is designed to examine the problems of the current system, build consensus around a responsible, nonpartisan reform plan, and ensure timely consideration and action on tax reform.

Keep the Ban on Internet Access Taxes

October 24, 2003 Dear Senator, On behalf of the 280,000 members of Citizens for a Sound Economy (CSE), I urge you to support the “Internet Tax Nondiscrimination Act of 2003” (S. 150), which would make permanent the current ban on Internet access taxes and multiple or discriminatory taxes on electronic commerce.

One Vote Away from Class Action Lawsuit Reform

On Wednesday, the Senate failed to end the filibuster on S. 1751, The Class Action Fairness Act, failed on a vote of 59 to 39. Despite the setback, we remain optimistic that class action reform will be able to pass the Senate this year. Senate leadership is expressing that sentiment as well. A version of this bill has already passed the House, and President Bush is a major supporter. So we’re only one vote away from handing the trial lawyers a major defeat!

Wisconsin Update

Wisconsin CSE continues to move right along. Russ Feingold, our junior Democratic Senator, maybe you've heard of him, is starting to gear up for his re-election bid, ("I'm likely to run for reelection in November 2004"), and the money is flowing in. His largest supporters happen to be trial lawyers. Additionally, the three declared Republican candidates are out stumping, each angling on Feingold. All four of them have received their Social Security pledges, and in some cases have taken the time to meet with CSE.

Seeing Straight on Contact Lens Regulations

Recently, the House Energy and Commerce Committee passed the “Fairness to Contact Lens Consumers Act,” (H.R. 3140) which promises to modernize regulations governing the contact lens industry. Like many other industries, technological advances and Internet marketing have the potential to provide consumers greater choice and more convenience when filling their prescriptions for new contact lenses. Unfortunately, these consumer benefits are held at bay by regulations that have failed to keep pace with the marketplace. Passing H.R. 3140 would remove unnecessary impediments and allow the market to serve consumers better using all the latest technologies.
