CSE Opposes Brevard County Tax Hike

Citizens for a Sound Economy’s Florida state chapter is mobilizing to stop a massive new tax increase in Brevard County. On November 4th, voters there will go to the polls to decide the fate of a new twenty-year sales tax. This tax hike is combined with a huge spending increase. And, if approved by voters, the liberals and special interests will have achieved their main goal: to grow the size and scope of government. Plus, there is no guarantee that any of the proposed projects will actually be built! Already over the last ten years:

Schools chief apologizes for merger flier

BY Geoffrey Graybeal

HILLSBOROUGH -- Orange County Schools Superintendent Shirley Carraway apologized Monday night for allowing a flier with information about school merger from a parent group to be distributed to students. Two residents had criticized the flier as being one-sided. "If it was an error to do that, it was an error on my part," Carraway said at the Orange County school board meeting held Monday night in the central office. "If that is offensive, I'm very sorry for that. It was an effort to get out information, because that information was being sought."

Action Alert: Help Stop the Brevard Tax Hike!

Florida needs your help. On November 4th, the voters in Brevard County will go to the polls and vote a twenty-year sales tax up or down. On that day, you will help to decide the fate of a $1.3 billion proposed tax increase. This tax hike is combined with a huge spending increase that makes this proposal just one big liberal tax-and-spend scheme. And if approved, the liberals and special interests will have achieved their main goal: to grow the size and scope of government.

Fort Worth, Texas, Plan Would Award Contracts to Firms That Cut Emissions

BY Scott Streater

Oct. 6--An explosion of construction, including work at North Beach Street and North Tarrant Parkway, has led to increased air pollution, some say. At a construction site in north Fort Worth, where they're building an Eckerd Drug, black smoke billows from a huge excavator as it strains to lift a concrete block. Across the street, where construction crews are preparing to build a Walgreen drugstore, road graders noisily plow the dirt as plumes of exhaust trail them like shadows.

Posted on Sun, Oct. 05, 2003 At a construction site in north Fort Worth, where they're building an Eckerd Drugs, black smoke bellows from a huge excavator as it strains to lift a concrete block. Across the street, where construction crews are preparing to build a Walgreens drugstore, road graders noisily plow the dirt as plumes of exhaust trail them like shadows. It's a scene played out daily across the Metroplex, where unbridled growth has unleashed one of the largest sources of air pollution in the region: diesel-powered construction equipment.

300 gather to hear schools merger info

BY CAROLYN NORTON

HILLSBOROUGH -- Some 300 people crowded a forum Thursday night to hear information about a possible merger of the Orange County and Chapel Hill-Carrboro schools. The event, sponsored by a local parents' group and held at Cedar Ridge High School, featured a UNC professor, a member of a 1985 committee that studied the topic, and Orange County Commissioner Moses Carey, who initiated local merger discussion this January. Merger is the only way to ensure equal opportunities for all students in the county, Carey told the crowd.

Who is General Wesley Clark?

General Wesley Clark, Democratic candidate for president who is not a registered Democrat, has been criticized for being a keynote speaker at a Republican fundraiser in 2001. There, he said President Ronald Reagan “was truly a great American leader” and praised President George H.W. Bush for his “tremendous leadership and statesmanship” and said he was “very glad we’ve got the great team in office: men like Colin Powell, Don Rumsfeld, Dick Cheney, Condoleezza Rice, Paul O’Neill— people I know well— our president, George W. Bush.”

No Backroom Deals on CO2

One of the larger tasks currently facing Congress is guiding an energy bill through conference. Both the House and Senate have passed versions that are now being reconciled. In some areas the differences are wide, which means there will be a certain amount of arm-twisting and cajoling to get the bill through conference. The Washington Post reports, for instance, that a loan guarantee for a power plant in Minnesota was included to sweeten the pot for Sen. Norm Coleman (R-Minn.) and that energy committee chair Sen. Domenici’s (R-N.M.) office has compiled a list of similar projects to woo additional support. Conference negotiations take place behind closed doors and far from the public, opening the potential to deals of all sorts.
