In the Twilight of his Presidency, Clinton Launches Regulatory Charge

President Clinton recently declared that, far from being a lame duck, he still has “ten weeks left to quack.” With Americans distracted by vote counts and court battles, the administration has begun quacking, launching a three-pronged regulatory assault that could burden the country for years to come.

Tech Bytes - Tid Bits in Tech News: Monumental District Court Ruling in Florida

The nation’s eyes have turned to the Sunshine state. A ruling handed down Friday by a U.S. District Court in Florida will have long-term implications for the development of the new economy. However, this story has nothing to do with the contested presidential election. Instead, the court’s ruling overturned a Broward county ordinance that mandated “open access” to cable lines owned by AT&T. Mandated “open access,” or forced access as it can more accurately be called, would require owners of cable systems to provide equal and nondiscriminatory access to each and every Internet provider that wishes to serve the cable system’s customers.

School Board Victors, Losers Debate Why

BY Marion Callahan

Some incumbents ousted in last week's Lincoln County school board election blame a political coup, of sorts, for pitting voters against them. Others say people simply wanted a change. "There were political insiders working hard against the school board as a whole," said board Chairwoman Betty Lawing, who has held her seat for 20 years but lost it Tuesday to George Dellinger, a retired schoolteacher. "They touched a lot of people and said we hadn't spent money wisely and didn't buy text books. "

Poll: Environment Worries Texans

BY Randy Lee Loftis

Fewer than one in five Texans think their local environment has gotten better over the last 10 years - and one-third think it has gotten worse, according to a Scripps Howard Texas Poll to be released Monday. An overwhelming majority - as high as 92 percent - say they are concerned about environmental problems ranging from pollution of drinking water to global warming. On nearly every environmental topic, most Texans say they are very concerned, the poll found.

Saine Resigns After One Day

BY Chip Wilson and Marion Callahan

Citing a conflict with his job as a political activist, Jason Saine resigned from the Lincoln County school board Thursday - the day after his controversial appointment. Saine, 27, said he made his decision before discovering he couldn't have stayed on the board because he lives about 200 feet outside the Howard's Creek township - the district he was appointed to represent. His residency aside, Saine said he made his decision because of his job.

Election 2000 State Supreme Court Results

Trial lawyers make their most significant gains where they feel most at ease: the courts. When trial lawyers lose legislatively, they turn their focus to state Supreme Courts and activist judges to strike down tort reform laws. In fact, state courts have overturned tort reform laws over 90 times in the last 16 years. CSE was active with our state Supreme Court voter education efforts in four states this year: Alabama, Illinois, Ohio, and Michigan. Educating voters in a state Supreme Court battle is tough: it has to involve on-the-ground activities with intensive door-to-door voter education efforts.

Election 2000 Federal Results

CSE’s federal strategy was to identify races in states and areas that are strong for CSE and also are critical to the overall movement. We did so and took our message directly to the grassroots. In several cases, our activists and staff were the only organization on the ground distributing flyers about the importance of tort reform, as well as where candidates stood on this important issue.
