H-1B Visa legislation

Today, the U.S. Senate voted 96-1 to authorize an expanded program of special visas for workers in the high technology sector. In applauding the Senate’s action, Empower America co-director Jack Kemp pointed out that "this is a limited but vitally important step towards eliminating barriers to the free flow of highly skilled labor and intellectual capital, both of which are vitally important to the knowledge-driven New Economy that is creating wealth and opportunity at a pace unprecedented in human history." Kemp also noted that while the Senate legislation is limited to authorizing up to 195,000 new visas per year for six years (the so-called H-1B visa), "it is hard to overestimate the symbolic importance of the Senate’s action in making it easier for American entrepreneurs to do what they do best: create the new technologies and dynamic new markets that will shape America for decades to come."

Stop Driving My Car

If you live in New York, Rhode Island, Connecticut, Maine, or Iowa, you might want to think twice about lending your car to a responsible friend with a good driving record, or you could wind up getting sued for doing a good deed. In July 1998, a road rage incident in Upstate New York tragically left a passenger in one of the vehicles with severe brain damage. Both drivers involved in the accident were found to be criminally liable and received jail time.

Las Promesas Rotas No Son la Receta Médica de Medicare que los Ciudadanos de la Tercera Edad de América Necesitan

Durante ocho años los ciudadanos de la tercera edad han estado esperando el liderazgo de la administración Clinton-Gore para resolver la crisis de Medicare y de recetas médicas de América. La Casa Blanca ha hecho nada. Peor aún, esta administración, junto con los Demócratas de la Cámara de los Representantes, abandonó los esfuerzos bipartisanos por fortalecer Medicare y proveer a los ciudadanos de la tercera edad con opciones para el seguro de recetas médicas, como las que reciben los miembros de Congreso y todos los empleados federales.

Koch Problems Could Be Ammo for Gore Camp

BY R. G. Ratcliffe

AUSTIN - Texas politicians, mostly Republican, received more than $ 144,000 in campaign contributions for the 1998 elections from Koch Industries - a Kansas-based company indicted by a federal grand jury this week on allegations the company illegally released cancer-causing pollutants into the air around Corpus Christi. Environmentalists and Democrats have complained that the situation with Koch is symptomatic of a broader problem in Texas - campaign contributions from the petrochemical industry have resulted in slack environmental enforcement by the state.

State House Candidates Try to Lure Voters to Run Offs

BY George Bennett

It will come down to a few die-hard voters. In three closely fought state House races in Palm Beach and Martin counties, the candidates who do the best job of fishing votes from a sea of indifference Tuesday will win all-but-guaranteed tickets to Tallahassee. Democrats in state House districts 88 and 89 in southern Palm Beach County and Republicans in House District 82 in Martin and northern Palm Beach counties will go to the polls for runoff elections, which are held when no candidate wins a majority in a primary.

It will come down to a few diehard voters. In three closely fought state House races in Martin and Palm Beach counties, the candidates who do the best job of fishing votes from a sea of indifference Tuesday will win all-but-guaranteed tickets to Tallahassee. Republicans in state House District 82, which includes parts of Martin and northern Palm Beach counties, and Democrats in two southern Palm Beach County House districts will go to the polls for runoff elections, which are held when no candidate wins a majority in a primary.
