Capitol Comment 293 - Education not Litigation: The Paul D. Coverdell Teacher Liability Protection Act of 2001

While schoolchildren often worry about fitting in with their peers, teachers are becoming more and more concerned each school year with the threat of lawsuits. In fact, a survey by the American Federation of Teachers shows that liability protection ranks among the top three concerns teachers want their unions to address. Thankfully, a bill in the U.S. Senate, “The Paul D. Coverdell Teacher Liability Protection Act” (S. 316), will help ease teachers’ concerns and allow them to focus on educating our children, rather than the threat of litigation.

Capitol Comment 292 - Evidence Shows School Choice Works

Schools ought to be more accountable for students’ educational achievement. To that end, President Bush’s education plan proposes to make accountability enforceable: If a school fails to make progress in educating disadvantaged students for three years, parents of these students could use federal Title I funds to move their children to an alternative public or private school.

Florida CSE Activists Storm the State House to Demand School Choice

Nearly 250 of Florida Citizens for a Sound Economy’s activists lobbied their state representatives to demand support for H.B. 303 and S.B. 504. This legislation applies to parents of students attending schools at over 120 percent capacity. Parents would be allowed to take part of the tax dollars spent on their child and use it at another public or private school. Activists also urged support for separate legislation to allow a tax credit for businesses that contribute to private scholarships, thereby making school choice available to even more parents.

Tech Bytes- Tid Bits in Tech News: The Spectre of Antitrust

Oral arguments before the D.C. Circuit Court of Appeals concerning the Microsoft antitrust case revealed significant holes in the government’s case. The judges’ overt skepticism of the government’s attempted monopolization and tying cases suggests that the break-up order is dead and that the case may be dropped altogether.

First Toilets, Now Washing Machines

BY Thomas Bray

Several years ago, hosting a town meeting back in his Oakland County congressional district, Rep. Joe Knollenberg was prepared to talk about everything from the federal budget to foreign policy. Instead, he found himself being peppered with complaints from irate homeowners protesting a 1992 law requiring the substitution of so-called low-flow toilets for the old 3.5-gallon tanks.

Issue Analysis 117 - Economic Deregulation and Re-regulation: Benefits and Threats

Economic deregulation in the airline, railroad, and telecommunications industries has generated tremendous benefits for consumers. In all three industries, deregulation has led to price reductions of at least 20 percent, and likely much more. Service quality has also improved dramatically compared to what the quality of service would have been under continue deregulation.

What President Bush’s Tax Cut Would

President Bush’s tax cut proposals would give real North Carolinians the significant tax relief they deserve. While big government proponents label it a "tax cut for the rich," in reality, all taxpayers would benefit from across-the-board cuts in marginal rates. In fact, under Bush’s proposal the richest Americans would shoulder a slightly higher percentage of the overall tax burden.
