Capitol Comment 287 - A Conspiracy Exposed: Gas Prices and the Clinton-Gore Administration

Over the past year, gasoline prices have soared, rising from an average of $1.03 per gallon in January 1999 to almost $1.60 in July 2000.1 For several weeks, some areas of the Midwest saw gasoline cost more than $2.00 per gallon.

Group assails refund delay

BY Amy Gardner

A small group of Republican lawmakers and indignant taxpayers gathered in front of the Department of Revenue on Thursday to protest the roughly 100,000 individual tax refunds still in state hands. "The citizens did not volunteer to lend their money to the state to help balance the budget," said Rep. Art Pope, a Raleigh Republican. "It's just wrong to play games with tax refunds."

Capitol Comment 286 - Total Maximum Daily Loads: EPA’s Sleight of Hand

On July 11, the Environmental Protection Agency (EPA) issued a rule finalizing major revisions to the Total Maximum Daily Load (TMDL) program, a long-dormant section of the Clean Water Act. The new rule applies to an estimated 20,000 water bodies throughout the United States, which, it is claimed, fail to meet water quality standards. The new TMDL rule represents perhaps the largest expansion of EPA’s regulatory authority America has ever seen. Virtually all land use in the United States could fall under the scope of a regulation of which most Americans have never heard.

N.C. late getting refunds to about 100,000 taxpayers

BY Amy Gardner

Three months after this year's tax-filing deadline, North Carolina still owes 101,000 taxpayers about $ 43 million in income tax refunds and is piling up millions of dollars in interest on late payments. So far, the state has paid $ 12.8 million in interest this year, and officials now estimate that the total will exceed $ 15 million, $ 5 million more than last year.

Personal Retirement Accounts Why CSE Cares There are twin crises facing the Social Security system, and our national political leaders cannot hide from this reality: The first crisis is financial. If nothing is done, the system will begin running cash deficits in just 15 years and will need to be bailed out with $11.3 trillion worth of new income taxes or government borrowing to pay its bills. The program’s long-term liabilities are a whopping $22 trillion - six times today’s national debt.

Activist Handbook 2000: Medicare and Prescription Drugs

Medicare Reform and Prescription Drugs Why CSE Cares The Issue: CSE believes that health care services are products that are best allocated through the decisions of individuals in the private marketplace. Health care services are, at times, critically important, and a market-based system offers the best chance to expand choices and control costs: government control of health care is typically inequitable, inefficient and irrational. Medicare, which provides health care to America’s elderly and disabled, is a case in point. The Problem:
