Perry among supporters of Bush's tax-cut plan

BY Gary Scharrer

AUSTIN -- The coming federal tax deadline offers a good reminder that income taxes should be cut, Gov. Rick Perry said Wednesday as he and others defended President Bush's proposed $1.6 trillion tax cut. "Americans shouldn't be overcharged so the federal government can be overweight," Perry said. "It's time to lift the onerous burden of federal taxation off the shoulders of hard-working Americans so that they can save, so that they can plan, so that they can achieve."

Perry unsure how tax-cut bid would affect state budget

BY Peggy Fikac

BODY: AUSTIN - As taxpayers face their annual federal day of reckoning, Gov. Rick Perry trumpeted President Bush's tax-cut plan but said Wednesday he hadn't analyzed how it might affect the state budget. State lawmakers are struggling to fund competing demands in areas including health care. Bush's tax plan includes a repeal of the tax on inherited property. It has been estimated that if fully implemented, it could cost the state $300 million annually, because Texas has a levy linked to the federal tax.

The majority of the Bush's 10-year $ 1.6 trillion tax cut would come from income tax reductions, repeal of the estate tax and the marriage tax and doubling the $ 500 per child tax credit.

Copley News Service, 04/11/2001 In a week when President George W. Bush's tax cut plan suffered major setbacks in the Senate, 49 leading African-American businessmen and businesswomen, including Bob Johnson of BET, Earl Graves of Black Enterprise magazine and Alice Houston of Automotive Carrier Services, took out an ad in newspapers across America to urge Congress to repeal the "death tax." Ironically, this ad makes the case better than the president's own party has made it.

Officials want leeway to meet clean-air rules

BY ERIC HANSON

RICHMOND - Common sense, solid science and economic reality should all play a role in developing solutions to reduce air pollution in the Houston area. That was the consensus voiced by five members of the U.S. House of Representatives, the county judges of Fort Bend, Brazoria and Montgomery counties and others at a recent meeting concerning clean-air issues. Houston is under a federal mandate to reduce emissions by 2007.

CSE Applauds President ForFirst Budget Submission

President George W. Bush has submitted the first budget of his Presidency, outlining his plans for the future of our country. CSE congratulates the President on his foresight and compassion for putting forth a budget that not only struggles to limit the ever expanding size of the federal government while increasing funding for federal priorities, but also to provides much needed tax relief to taxpayers! "This budget represents exactly why the American people put President Bush in office," said CSE President Paul Beckner, President of CSE, "It combines a limited amount of increased spending, the right amount of debt reduction and finally much needed tax relief. The president’s budget will ensure long term economic growth and prosperity."
