CSE Supports Rep. DeMint’s Amendment to H.R. 1350

Washington, DC – Today, the U.S. House of Representatives will debate H.R. 1350, the “Improving Education Results for Children With Disabilities Act of 2003.” Citizens for a Sound Economy (CSE) supports and calls on all legislators to endorse Rep. Jim DeMint’s (R-S.C.) amendment to H.R. 1350. The DeMint amendment would improve IDEA by providing sensible reforms that would give parents of children with disabilities more say on how education dollars should be spent to educate their child. Through parental choice in education, CSE believes that all children would receive the best education possible.

AAA Clubs of New Jersey Support Choice and Competition Bill

The Coalition for Auto Insurance Competition today announced that the AAA Clubs of New Jersey has joined the effort to bring choice and competition to New Jersey's auto insurance market. "The AAA Clubs of New Jersey recognize the need for a regulatory system that promotes competition, encourages companies to sell auto insurance in New Jersey, and creates a stable market that offers more choices for consumers," said John Friedman, the Coalition's chairman. The Coalition supports The New Jersey Automobile Insurance Competition and Choice Act, which passed the State Senate. The New Jersey General Assembly Banking and Insurance Committee is expected to consider the bill (S-63/A-2625) in May. The legislation has the backing of Governor James McGreevey and a bipartisan group of legislators in both houses. The AAA Clubs of New Jersey - AAA North Jersey, New Jersey Automobile Club, AAA Mid-Atlantic and AAA South Jersey - provide automotive, travel, financial, insurance, legislative and educational services to 1.9 million members through 27 offices in the Garden State. The Coalition is calling for reforms that will attract more auto insurers to New Jersey, spurring competition and increasing consumer choice. These reforms include permitting companies to use industry-accepted standard underwriting methods already used in nearly every state and adjusting the low ceiling on company profits to permit a reasonable rate of return. "It's only natural to expect that consumers will shop around for the best deal if they have more choices. Competition and choice benefit consumers and when companies compete, consumers win, " said Friedman. The Coalition for Auto Insurance Competition includes the National Association of Independent Insurers, Insurance Council of New Jersey, American Insurance Association, New Jersey Chamber of Commerce, Independent Insurance Agents of New Jersey, Citizens for a Sound Economy, National Association of Mutual Insurance Companies, New Jersey Association of REALTORS(R), Professional Insurance Agents of New Jersey, New Jersey Food Council, New Jersey Retail Merchants Association, NJ SEED (Society for Environmental, Economic Development) Latino Chamber of Commerce of Mercer County, and the Commerce and Industry Association of New Jersey.

North Carolina State Senate Fails Taxpayer's Test

If yesterday's budget vote in the State Senate was scored by the taxpayers, a majority of the Senators would have to repeat their grade. Twenty-eight Senators not only voted to repeal the promised "sunset" of income and sales tax ($857 million over two years) but also to postpone tax relief ( the child tax credit and the elimination of the marriage penalty tax) which was passed by the State House.

Celebrate Earth Day: Work Hard, Get Paid

Each year, Earth Day provides environmentalists an opportunity to showcase their cause and steel the nation’s resolve to confront an environment in crisis. Tuesday, April 22, marked this year’s Earth Day, with the usual fanfare and litany of environmental disasters. The administration and the Republican Congress are, of course, the villains in this tale. From a war for oil, to the push to exploit the Arctic wilderness, to the failure to ratify the Kyoto Protocol on global warming, they are accused of abandoning the environment in favor of the economy. In reality, this is a false dichotomy; economic growth provides the resources critical for environmental improvement.

Protectionism: Protecting Whom?

In the swirling debate over globalization and free trade, one tends to lose sight of the actual policies being debated. Amidst competing concerns of “environmental destruction,” “exploitation,” and “Gap is the real terrorist,” one can forget what the word “globalization” describes, and what specifically is meant by “free trade.”

Stop Governor Rendell from Taking More of Your Money!

The battle over Pennsylvania’s budget continues this week as Governor Rendell and state legislators have yet to come to an agreement. Pennsylvania lawmakers rightly rejected the governor’s initial budget, part of his “Plan for a New Pennsylvania” in March and so far the state is without a real budget.
