TORT REFORM OVERDUE

BY EDITORIAL & COMMENT

(c) 2003 Columbus Dispatch. All Rights Reserved. For the past 15 years, Ohio lawmakers have wrestled with this question: How much is too much to award in personal-injury lawsuits? Last week, House Speaker Larry Householder wrongly sidetracked Senate Bill 80, the third and latest attempt to find a middle ground that would allow victims reasonable compensation for their injuries while preventing juries from awarding outlandish sums that impose an undue burden on businesses and individuals.

An Agenda for Economic Reform

Notwithstanding the war in Iraq, the economy has become a new source of focus for both the media and politicians. While economic statistics suggest that the worst may have passed, the recovery is slow, and persistent unemployment numbers continue to generate worries among both employers and employees, particularly in the manufacturing sector. The stalled economy has many pointing to the president’s tax cuts as the source of the malaise. However, the tax cuts were a critical first step towards a stronger economy, providing businesses the capital to invest in new growth while allowing consumers to keep more of their hard-earned income. Rather than calling for more big government solutions, Washington needs to build on the president’s economic agenda by removing unnecessary burdens and roadblocks to growth and investment. Eliminating unnecessary and excessive regulatory burdens and reforming the nation’s costly legal system are important elements of the economic reform formula.

Tax plan squeezes senior citizens

BY JAMES MAYER

When politicians cast about for someone to pony up more for government, you don't expect them to single out senior citizens. Gamblers, yes. Smokers, for sure. But the over-65 crowd? Senior citizens tend to pay keen attention to their tax bills. And they vote in large numbers. But that's exactly what Oregon lawmakers did.

Sizemore's legal troubles limit his anti-tax push

BY The Associated Press

EUGENE — Bill Sizemore, an activist who has campaigned against taxes for 10 years, must content himself with a supporting role in the most recent assault against a tax increase that is part of the Legislature’s budget-balancing package. Sizemore has been mailing out petition sheets and fund-raising letters to help overturn the proposed increase, which would raise $1.1 billion during three years. But Sizemore is working largely on his own, shunned by anti-tax groups who worry that his legal entanglements could taint their campaign.
