Common-sense approach to salmon restoration needed

Citizens for a Sound Economy today denounced a lawsuit filed against the Army Corps of Engineers by four so-called environmental groups on April 10. The groups are suing the Corps over its decision to remove salmon-killing Caspian Terns from Rice Island in the Columbia River. Rice Island was built by the Corps from materials dredged out of the river. Caspian Terns — a slender seabird closely related to gulls — first began to colonize artificial island in 1986. This species of tern dives into the water to capture prey, and nests in large colonies.

Tech Bytes - Tid Bits in Tech News: Iowa On Cutting Edge While Many States are in Stone Age

This week, while many Americans were focused on the Internet tax debate in our nation's capital, Iowa Legislators were working on an Internet tax debate of their own. The Iowa House passed legislation to protect consumers from the grips of state and local tax collectors. More information about this development and about Iowa CSE can be found here. Unfortunately, while activists fight to repeal stone-age regulations, bureaucrats are on the lookout for loopholes and innovative new theories to tax the latest communications technologies.

William J. Bennett Comments on Sen. Lieberman's 'Three R's' Bill

Fifteen years ago, when I was named Secretary of Education by President Ronald Reagan, "A Nation at Risk" had just evaluated the performance of the American school system, and reported that the state of our schools was not only a threat to kids but to the future of our nation. In response, America has tried a variety of reforms at the state level. Most notably and most recently, we have embraced (in theory, at least) the idea of high standards and accountability. Almost every state in the union now has standards in reading and math, and twenty-six have instituted exit exams for high school. The slight increases in student performance, seen in the National Assessment of Educational Progress in the late 1990’s, reflects some success on these fronts.

Trade Tariffs: The Next Generation

This week the authorities responsible for public safety in Washington, D.C. have been on high alert. No one wants a repeat performance of last year’s Seattle protests, looting, and vandalism. At issue is a difficult-to-understand, but powerful, fear of “globalization.” The dominant thread in the protests against globalization is America’s international trade relationships. Next month, Congress is expected to vote on legislation to make our trade relationship with China normal – to make it match our relationship with other countries.

EXPAND THE e-CONOMY

America needs to unleash the full potential of the high-tech economy for consumers by breaking down obsolete government barriers. The high-tech industry is responsible for 44 percent of domestic economic growth since 1994. To keep this engine of growth moving, we must remove the heavy hand of government regulation and taxes. That is why CSE believes we must keep the Internet free from taxation.

Internet Taxes Bad for E-conomy

Today, Citizens for a Sound Economy praised the GOP for its “E-Contract 2000,” a pledge to support a tax-free Internet. The pledge sends a strong message to consumers that legislators intend to keep the Internet free from the heavy-hand of government taxation. In March, CSE launched an online petition campaign to permanently ban taxation of the Internet. This campaign sends a strong message to elected officials throughout the country that American consumers want the Internet free from taxation.
