Saving Salmon Will Require Setting Aside 'Wild Fish' Fallacy

Saving salmon means setting aside romantic notions about "wild fish," and instead marshaling resources to address natural ocean cycles, to control exploding populations of birds and mammals that eat salmon, and to improve hatcheries by incorporating tribal practices that mimic Mother Nature. That's the gist of new report released Tuesday by Save the Salmon Coalition, a new regional group with its sights on protecting fish as well as the public interest.

Revolts Threaten Clinton-Lazio Cease-Fire on Ads

BY Jim Drinkard, Kathy Kiely

WASHINGTON -- An agreement by Democrat Hillary Rodham Clinton and Republican Rick Lazio to discourage "soft money" ads in their Senate race in New York, hailed as a victory for campaign-finance reform, appears to be crumbling before it can begin. On Monday, at least one influential group on each side said it would disregard the deal reached Saturday and feel free to promote its own interests in the campaign.

CSE Responds to Gore Medicare Rhetoric

Today, Citizens for a Sound Economy responded to Vice President Gore’s Medicare Proposal. “Evidently, Al Gore’s definition of Medicare reform is more accounting tricks and empty promises,” said CSE Vice President of Public Affairs Marty Reiser. “The Gore plan ignores Medicare’s dire financial status by pretending that an undefined lock-box scheme will somehow secure the necessary funds that won’t even be there in the first place.” The Medicare proposals offered by Gore ranged from disingenuous to malevolent. For instance:

Congressional Delegation Out of High-Tech Loop

BY Marilyn Geewax

As high-tech companies mushroom, Georgia's old economy --- largely built on peanuts, poultry and pulpwood --- is being transformed. The new foundation rests on computer bits, bytes and biotech. Though only about 4 percent of Georgians are farmers today, about 7 percent are high-tech workers, such as computer engineers and programmers. In metro Atlanta alone, roughly 10,000 tech companies employ about 220,000 people.

Issue Analysis 109 - Clearing the Air: The Environmental Record in Texas

Given the dynamics of the 2000 presidential race, special interest groups, politicians, and the media have focused great attention on environmental quality in the state of Texas. Vice President Al Gore and his allies portray Texas as an environmental wasteland, and lay this alleged catastrophe squarely at the feet of Gov. George W. Bush. However, an objective look at the environment in Texas shows that, while there are unquestionably challenges remaining, the state has made significant progress over the past five years.

Texas CSE Designates "Friends of the Taxpayer"

The Friend of the Taxpayer Award from Texas Citizens for a Sound Economy is a new recognition for policymakers whose efforts have contributed to protect the pocketbooks of constituents and for dedication to public service. “We want policymakers to remember that every dime government spends comes from taxpayers and consumers,” said Peggy Venable, director of Texas CSE. “We commend the efforts of the award recipients to make sure taxpayers are getting their money’s worth and that government does not make decisions consumers should be making in the marketplace.”
