Erick Gustafson grew up in a different Sarasota than he left seven years ago. Condominiums and vacation homes have replaced trailer parks on Longboat Key. Hotels have risen. Strip malls have been built. Countless tiffs about signage and aesthetics have flared.

'Just Say No' to More Tax Gimmicks

© Copley News Service, 12/27/2001 The so-called economic "stimulus" bill collapsed in Congress just before the holidays, and it's just as well. The new year provides President George W. Bush a golden opportunity to use his State of the Union Address to propose a true economic growth package based on real prosperity policies: deep and permanent tax rate reductions and reforms accompanied by a significant weeding out of excessive regulations.

'Tis the Season for Daschle to Compromise

© 2001 Copley News Service When the economy does well, class warriors in Sen. Tom Daschle's wing of the Democratic Party want to increase tax rates on successful people on the grounds that they should "share the wealth." When times get bad, these same class warriors argue that higher tax rates on upper-income people are required to pay for increased government benefits to those suffering from the economic downturn.

Hidden Taxes Should be Lowered, Too

As Congress scrambles to clear the calendar and head home for the holidays, the stimulus package has become a sticking point that has stalemated the legislative process. Rather than focus on tax cuts that can provide the right incentives for entrepreneurs and businesses to bolster the economy, the debate has bogged down in bailouts and giveaways that will do little to promote long-term economic growth. Also falling by the wayside is any attempt to ease the regulatory burden on the economy. Notably, the Tauzin-Dingell bill, which sought to eliminate regulatory barriers to the next wave of telecommunications technology, has been set aside until next year at the earliest. At the same time, with the administration's attention focused on important foreign policy questions, federal agencies continue to move forward with costly and expansive regulatory agendas. These regulatory burdens are substantial and rival taxes in costs to consumers and the economy as a whole.

Organization of Milk Exporting States

Down, but almost never out, agricultural price support programs have tremendous staying power in Washington. Attempts to eliminate them are fought tooth and nail by constituencies dependent on price-fixing for their livelihood. Like many other congressionally-mandated price-fixing cartels, the Northeast Dairy Compact was instituted as a temporary measure to ensure the viability of farmers in a time of declining prices. Like most other "temporary" government subsidies dairy price supports have become a "necessary" component of U.S. agriculture policy.

Upcoming TNRCC Meeting

The Texas Natural Resources and Conservation Commission has scheduled a hearing for January 18, 2002, at their headquarters in Austin to discuss the petition presented to the TRNCC during the Presidential election to impose the CO2 reductions outlined in the Kyoto Protocol treaty on the residents of Texas. These measures would impose a gas tax on Texas consumers and would be costly both to consumers and to the Texas economy. If you are interested in testifying or getting more information, contact us at: cjones@cse.org and we'll get back to you after January first.

Trade Promotion Authority Promotes Economic Growth

Last week, by the narrowest of margins-215 to 214, the House passed legislation granting the president trade promotion authority, critical to the United States' continued prosperity in a global market. Trade promotion authority, also known as fast track authority, allows the president to negotiate trade agreements that are then sent to Congress for and up or down vote-no amendments allowed. This allows the president to expand the marketplace for American goods and services without becoming embroiled in the partisan wrangling of congressional politics. As the world's largest trading nation, the United States has much to gain from the passage of trade promotion authority.
