A New Charge Against Fraud and Waste

With government spending up to $2.2 trillion a year, there’s more room than ever for waste, fraud, and abuse. Three cheers, then, for Representative Jim Nussle, who as Chairman of the House Budget Committee has launched a war to expose the rotten or unnecessary parts of the federal government.

Nevada Supreme Court Adds to Budget Chaos

In one of the most stunning decisions in the state’s history, the Nevada Supreme Court last week circumvented the state’s constitution and ruled that the state legislature needs only a simple majority vote to raise taxes in the state. The decision was a result of Gov. Kenny Guinn’s lawsuit against state lawmakers following the absence of a state budget to fund public schools by the July 1 deadline.

CSE Defeats Sales Tax but Others Still Loom

Thanks to an all-out effort by Oregon CSE activists last week, a sales tax proposal was successfully killed for this session. Activists called, wrote, and emailed state legislators, in addition to testifying at open hearings to express their opposition to the sales tax. This is a great victory for all Oregonians and everyone at CSE would like to thank all those activists that participated in the effort. But our work is far from over.

©2003 Copley News Service, 7/23/2003 In life, "It is not the critic who counts. The credit belongs to the man who is actually in the arena, whose face is marred by dust and sweat and blood - who spends himself in a worthy cause, who at best knows in the end the triumph of high achievement, and who at the worse, if he fails, at least fails while daring greatly."

Breaking the Welfare Chains

In 1996, after seeing federal welfare policy fail to help the poor for 60 years, our leaders in Washington decided it was time to try something new. They boldly passed a welfare reform law that ended the legal entitlement to cash handouts, required many to work in order to receive money, and gave states the flexibility to design their own programs.

High Energy Solutions

Recently, Alan Greenspan testified before Congress on growing concerns over natural gas supplies and the potential adverse effects of high energy prices on the recovery of the U.S. economy. Prices have edged upwards and Greenspan notes they are expected to remain high for a while. Some industrial demand has been priced out of the market, and it remains unclear whether this is a temporary phenomenon. The economic impact of energy prices offers a reminder of the importance of energy policy for a strong economy. Yet energy policy remains embroiled in politics, with the Senate struggling to finalize an energy bill that is dominated by special interests rather than economic growth.
