Capital Gains Tax Cuts - The Key to Economic Stimulus

Even before the tragedies of September 11, the economy was sputtering. GDP grew by just 0.2 percent last quarter, leaving America on the brink of a recession. The vast effects of the attacks could exacerbate the economic slowdown by devastating the airline and insurance industries, and causing American markets to be less attractive to foreign investors. Given the new and unpredictable strains the economy will face, it is essential for Congress to a pass pro-growth economic stimulus package.

A Billion Dollar Tax Increase is the Wrong Action at the Wrong Time

When the state legislature passed the new state budget, some legislators disregarded the economic realities in North Carolina -- the citizens of this state cannot afford this massive $1 billion tax increase. North Carolinians are facing some of the toughest economic times in our state’s history. Layoffs are staggering, bankruptcies have increased dramatically, and we are suffering through a national crisis. The legislators that voted for this $1 billion tax increase have now added to our economic decline.

Lobbying Group Vows to Set Aside Priorities to Back Bush Wartime Plans

BY Susan Crabtree

A number of K Street giants have agreed to set aside individual legislative wish lists and rally around President Bush and what he determines the fall agenda should be. "Our agenda is whatever the President believes is necessary for the country, and we will be supportive of that," said Dan Danner, senior vice president of public affairs for the National Federation of Independent Businesses. "This is not the time for individual groups to be concerned about their own specific tax item or specific agenda."

Transit sales tax pushing ahead

BY Janet Burkitt

Voters last night were approving Snohomish County's proposed sales-tax increase for expanded transit service. If Proposition 1 passes, it will increase the county's sales tax by 3 cents on every $10 purchase, enabling Community Transit (CT) to restore service it eliminated last year after the passage of Initiative 695. I-695, which led to a cut in auto-license fees to a flat $30 per vehicle, cost CT more than $18 million per year, or about 30 percent of its operating budget.

Citizens Praise Judge's Decision on Coho Salmon Recovery

In a victory for sound science, a federal judge in Eugene ruled that the National Marine and Fisheries Service (NMFS) can no longer list Oregon coastal coho salmon as endangered. U.S. District Judge Michael R. Hogan ruled that NMFS erred by not including hatchery- bred salmon in determining endangered species listings. The decision has broad implications all across the Northwest as plaintiffs continue to challenge the validity of federal listings of salmon under the Endangered Species Act (ESA).
