Enron effect: loud, but not clear

BY Peter Grier

HIGHLIGHT: As lawmakers open hearings today, Enron boondoggle seems unlikely to catch fire as a big political scandal. BODY: Opening today in Washington: a drama with compelling charactersand moral overtones, but a plot so complex that only an attentive CPA may be able to follow it to the end. The show in question is the congressional Enron investigation, of course. Lawmakers are lifting the curtain on a series of hearings in which they plan to question firm officials and accountants about the energy firm's spectacular collapse.

The Time for Health Care Reform is Now

For the seventh consecutive year, it appears unlikely that a "Patients' Bill of Rights" will be signed into law. The main criticism of PBOR - as the bill is commonly referred to, in accordance with Washington, D.C.'s love for acronyms - is that it would raise the price of health insurance premiums to a level that would lead some employers to drop health coverage. With an estimated 44 million Americans already without health insurance, a new law to increase the ranks of the uninsured would be counterproductive.

Make the Bush Tax Cuts Permanent

For the first time in a generation, the American people received a significant tax cut when Congress passed the Economic Growth and Tax Relief Act of 2001. The tax cut reduces marginal tax rates at every level over a period of years and is intended to eliminate the Death Tax. The tax cut, in large part, reflects the proposal President Bush campaigned on, except in one critical respect --- the tax cut is not permanent. And fixing that problem is the single greatest fiscal step Congress could take to boost economic growth.

Florida CSE Travels to Hernando County to Promote Social Security and Medicare Reform

As the debate in Washington, D.C. rages on regarding an economic stimulus bill and protecting the tax cut President Bush signed into law in June, 2001 from tax and spend liberals, Florida Citizens for a Sound Economy (FL CSE) hit the road to promote and remind citizens of equally important issues: the need for fundamental Social Security and Medicare reform.

Grow Florida's Economy Not Florida's Government

The citizens of Florida have been hit hard by the current recession. Many people have lost jobs as business struggle to make ends meet. The Florida legislature should not compound the problem by backing a broad-based tax increase at a time when our economy is sluggish. Senator John McKay has made a proposal that would do just that - raise taxes! Worse, it seeks to shift the tax burden from tourists to the engine of Florida's economic growth : private enterprise.

Enron Needed a Level Playing Field

BY JASON M. THOMAS

While it is no perversion of language to describe Enron's collapse as a scandal, it is difficult, if not impossible, to identify any political dimension to the scandal or any course of action elected officials can take to ameliorate the situation. With a criminal investigation and numerous class-action civil suits underway, congressional investigations will do little more than earn headlines and provide a platform for political mudslinging and irresponsible charges.

Emissions plan seen as lacking

BY JANET ELLIOTT

AUSTIN - Environmental groups were disappointed Friday by the Texas Natural Resource Conservation Commission's decision to endorse a program of voluntary reductions in greenhouse gas emissions. "We're disappointed they did not go further," said Tom "Smitty" Smith of Public Citizen, one of the environmental groups that petitioned the commissioners to inventory greenhouse gases and encourage reductions in carbon dioxide emissions. Smith said the agency should have set "meaningful targets or goals" for emission reductions.

Environmentalists say emissions plan lacking

The Texas Natural Resource Conservation Commission's endorsement of a voluntary greenhouse gas emission reduction plan on Friday has left some environmental groups disappointed. Tom "Smitty" Smith, director of Texas' chapter of Public Citizen, said TNRCC should have demanded "meaningful targets or goals" for emission reductions. "We're disappointed they did not go further," Smith told the Houston Chronicle for its Saturday editions.
