Louisiana: Insurance Required

BY Chris Gautreau

Driving without insurance in Louisiana has become increasingly difficult over the past two years. From October 1998 through June of this year, thousands of cars were impounded when drivers were unable to prove they carried state-mandated liability insurance policies. That law combined with court-approved insurance checkpoints and so-called "no pay, no play" laws that limit an uninsured driver's claim to damages comprise some of the country's toughest compulsory insurance laws.

Media Blitz Trumpets Three Wake County Bonds

BY T. Keung Hui

If your heart is being tugged and your mind exercised, the media campaign launched this week by Wake's bond campaign organizers just might be working on you. With a month to go before Election Day, Friends of Wake County has revved up the campaign with radio and newspaper ads, soon to be followed by television spots. Through appeals to both the intellect and the emotions of voters, the group hopes to win passage of the $ 500 million school bond, the $ 20 million jail bond and the $ 15 million open-space bond.

Issue Analysis 111 - Broadband Forced Access: Still a Solution in Search of a Problem

Forced access regulation would compel cable companies to provide non-discriminatory use of their lines to competing Internet Service Providers (ISPs). The goal is to ensure that ISPs that do not own cable lines can use existing cable the lines to reach their customers in the same way and on the same terms as IPSs owned by cable companies.

Another Al Gore Embellishment on Energy Policy

The New Al Gore... “I'm not in favor of energy taxes …” (Al Gore, second presidential debate, October 11, 2000) Gore’s Record... Gore authored and fought for a tax on all energy, called the Btu tax. “And you mention the energy tax as if we are somehow to blame for the fact that the energy tax -- or the Btu tax was not enacted. We proposed it and worked hard for it …” (Al Gore, White House Briefing, April 22, 1994) Gore cast the deciding vote for a 31 percent hike in gas taxes in 1993.

It's Not Class War, It's Marriage

Copley News Service, 10/11/2000 The vice presidential debate between Dick Cheney and Joe Lieberman was a fabulous discussion between two statesmen, two good friends of mine and two distinct points of view about our future. Both went toe to toe for 90 minutes and while most thought the contest a draw, in my opinion, Cheney clearly won and helped George W. Bush far more than Sen. Lieberman, as good as he was, helped Vice President Al Gore. Let me explain.

A Letter to the Washington Post

Internet Service Providers (ISPs) offer their subscribers both proprietary content and Internet access. As Alec Klein’s October 10th article describes, proprietary content is often acquired through exclusive contracts that deter hyperlinks to, and the promotion of, competitive content and shopping. This practice is used to secure more advertising revenue, as consumers are encouraged to remain within the subscriber-only network.

Trial Lawyer Money Flows Once Again

Just last week our state's judicial candidates filed campaign finance reports for the November general election. Initial news reports declared that the Republican candidates received the majority of their funds from business while the Democrats had gotten the lion share of their contributions from the Alabama Democratic Party. But what about those perennial big dollar donors, the trial lawyers? Has all this talk that the tort reform battle is over sent the trial lawyers and their "jackpot justice" millions into retirement?
