Jack Kemp Statement on Supreme Court Decision on Affirmative Action

I was pleased with the Supreme Court landmark opinion yesterday in Grutter v. Bollinger that higher education institutions may use race as a factor in admission decisions to achieve diversity. Also, President Bush’s statement applauding the decision is highly commendable. But we must not lose sight of the reality that the effort to create a more open and more just society continues today and in the foreseeable future.

Hoary Economic Fallacies

©2003 Copley News Service, 6/23/2003 Here's a "man-bites-dog" story. I recently testified before the Democratic Policy Committee chaired by Sen. Byron Dorgan of North Dakota. The hearing was centered on the economic effects of President Bush's tax reforms. It was commendable - and gutsy - for Dorgan to invite me, and I am sorry the White House didn't also accept the invitation to testify. It was real theater: Kemp vs. the Democratic Party establishment defending the Bush tax cuts.

"The Night of the Living Death Tax"

BY Marv Essary

The House of Representatives has voted again to kill the Estate Tax, or the Death Tax, which prevents citizens from leaving their entire estates to their heirs. The problem remains Sen. Tom Daschle and his cronies who are interested in high taxes and income redistribution. Chris Kinnan of Citizens for Sound Economy writes an entertaining summary of the situation in this article from the group's website.

Technology’s Coming of Age: Part I

One way of looking at the current technology industry’s growth slowdown is as a rite of passage. Those who like to reinforce negative behavior see the ‘crash’ of the industry as its arrival. The reasoning goes that once an industry slowdown is significant enough to cause economic pain and appears subject to recessionary pressures as its predecessors such as industrials, utilities, telecommunications and financial services, the industry can become officially accepted as part of the economy. According to this theory, the Great Depression would be the homecoming parade of the financial service industry – a necessary failure to get on the VIP list of the party that is the American economy.

It is all about time and timing; History and Histrionics

The special session on redistricting and government reorganization was announced by Governor Rick Perry this week, immediately followed by Comptroller Carole Keeton Strayhorn's announcement that she can't certify the $117.4 billion budget sent to her by the Legislature earlier this month.

Riley Recruiting Help From Local Leaders on Tax Package

MOBILE, Ala. (AP) - Gov. Bob Riley is recruiting local elected officials and community leaders to help him sell his $1.2 billion tax and accountability package to Alabama voters. Speaking to an invited audience Wednesday in Mobile, Riley said he needs people to lobby for his package within their communities. "If I can convince you of that, then we will win," Riley said. "But the only way I can do this is to have that grass-roots kind of demand for excellence."

Texas Special Session Update

Today, Governor Perry called a special session that will begin June 30th. Redistricting and government reorganization will be included in the session. Hearings will be held late next week on redistricting. Speaker Craddick announced the redistricting subcommittees and the hearing schedule, which is listed below. The Governor can name a special session at any time. Special sessions can last up to 30 days (but don't expect this upcoming session to last that long.) Cost of a special session is around $1.4 billion, but with government reorganization, the state can streamline services and save millions annually. It is also important to note that redistricting is a function of the legislature and last session (two years ago), the leg abdicated their responsibility and it was kicked to the courts. It's time the legislature address this important issue. Though there are no definite dates for a special session on school finance (which will encompass the entire tax system in Texas and likely some education reform), it will be as early as fall but likely after December. Texas CSE will be involved in the important issues of government reorganization, school finance and education reform. You will be receiving more information from us in the coming days.
