New Jersey Chamber of Commerce, Commerce and Industry Association of NJ, NJSEED Join Coalition for Auto Insurance Competition

The Coalition for Auto Insurance Competition today announced that three influential and respected business groups have joined the effort to fundamentally reform New Jersey's auto insurance laws. "These groups recognize the need for a regulatory system that promotes competition, encourages companies to sell auto insurance in New Jersey, and creates a stable market that offers more choices for consumers," said John Friedman, the coalition's chairman.

Energy Battle Brewing

The Senate tackles a number of important issues this week, and the debate over energy policy may be one of the most important. While the economics of energy may lack the scandal-tinged allure of campaign finance reform, the decisions Congress makes about energy this week will have a much greater impact on the average American than Washington’s self-touted efforts to clean up politics. Political reform is a perennial issue and it is questionable to expect politicians to pass laws that would make their lives more difficult. As Ronald Reagan noted, “Politics is supposed to be the second oldest profession. I have come to understand that it bears a very close resemblance to the first.” Energy, on the other hand, is vital to virtually every good and service we purchase; what happens in the Senate this week could mean big changes that affect all Americans.

Taxes Dominate CSE Days at the Capitol

The nation’s governors came to Washington this week amidst severe budget problems in state-after-state. The governors had a request for Congress: Give us $40 billion. In fairness, the governors are not the only organized pressure group coming to Washington to ask for federal handouts. Each year, literally thousands of interest groups pitch Congress for a piece of the taxpayer’s money. When the government plans to spend $2 trillion, we should expect a long line of folks with their hand out. Governors with budget problems of their own (making) are no exception.

Die Death Tax, Die

Investors do not like uncertainty. If, as Ralph Waldo Emerson said, “The wheels and springs of man are all set to the hypothesis of the permanence of nature,” it is the belief in the permanence of law that sets all commercial activity in motion. Deprive investors, merchants, and consumers of legal certainty and they will retrench. Consumption will fall, discretionary risk capital will dodge risks, and all commercial exchange will slow as parties on both sides of the trade look for ways to hedge their bets.

Why Cleveland needs school choice

The Washington Times Copyright 2002 Saturday, February 23, 2002 LETTERS Why Cleveland needs school choice The fate of the Cleveland school district's voucher program is now in the hands of the Supreme Court, who must decide whether the inclusion of religious schools violates the First Amendment. With religious schools providing the only alternative for most Cleveland students, the importance of the court's decision for their well-being cannot be underestimated.

Cooper defends ad use

BY Rob Christensen

State Attorney General Roy Cooper has been running public service ads in newspapers and on radio stations across North Carolina -- the same practice that became a major issue in the last governor's race. The Attorney General's Office has spent $ 219,486 on public service ads warning homeowners of predatory lending practices by mortgage lenders. The radio and newspaper ads are paid for from the proceeds of court settlements resulting from a lawsuit brought against a mortgage lender.

 I would like to commend Robert Holland's outstanding column, "Hearts, minds, and vouchers," in your Feb. 19 Commentary section. But I would like to expand on his depiction of Cleveland schools.

Impact Update 3.16

Washington: 150 CSE Activists Storm the Capitol More than 150 activists from around the state took the President’s Day holiday to attend Washington CSE’s third annual “Day at the Capitol,” and lobby their state legislators for lower taxes, less government, and more freedom. Prior to storming the Capitol building, the activists attended educational seminars on the state’s budget deficit and its lack of accountability, presented by Lynn Harsh of the Evergreen Freedom Foundation; on transportation issues, sponsored by Eric Montague of the Cascade Policy Institute; and on federal issues including energy security. A number of elected officials were also in attendance, including State House Minority Leader Clyde Ballard and State Senator Jim West, recipients of CSE’s Legislative Excellence Awards, who addressed the importance of citizen activism and the state’s current budget crises. CSE will also host a “Day at the Capitol,” in North Carolina, and is in the process of planning CSE similar events in several other states.
