River Buffers Under Fire From Group

BY Bruce Henderson

About 80 N.C. legislators and legislative candidates have signed pledges to repeal state buffer rules for the Catawba and two other river basins, an anti-tax group says. N.C. Citizens for a Sound Economy sent letters asking for the buffer pledges, and a second pledge to not raise taxes, to 330 incumbents and candidates, director Jonathan Hill said. The group says river buffers infringe on private property rights.

Budget Cuts: Round Two

BY Amy Gardner

When asked to give back more than $ 1 billion from this year's budget, state agencies returned unspent salaries, turned over unanticipated income from service fees and, in one case, dipped into a well-padded reserve account, newly released budget documents show. All of which raises this question: Can they do it again?

Anti-Tax Rally Targets Legislature

BY Wade Rawlins

George Alan Esworthy, a software engineer from Apex, joined an anti-tax rally in front of the General Assembly on Monday carrying a Navy flag used to signal other ships to attack the enemy. On the striped flag was a snake and the motto "Don't tread on me." "I'm angry," Esworthy said. "The politicians keep telling us we have a shortfall. That's a lie, We have an overspending problem. I keep getting angrier because they just don't get the message." Sue Eaton, a Raleigh homemaker, held up a protest sign that announced that anyone paying attention should be outraged.

CSE Activists Fly in to Lobby for More Freedom

SUMMARY: The House and Senate return this week from their two-week recess with a relatively light calendar. The Senate will resume consideration of the energy bill focusing on the issue of tax credits. The House in the meantime will consider several bills under suspension and then plans to take up a taxpayer bill of rights which would make modest, pro-consumer changes to the tax code.

Groups Aim to Thwart Tax Hikes

BY Eric Dyer

When the General Assembly needed money last year to balance North Carolina's finances, it raised taxes. As lawmakers prepare for another session during which budget woes will top the agenda, groups opposed to higher levies are applying pressure so that state leaders avoid taking the same path. The Democrat-controlled legislature tentatively approved a $14.7 billion budget last fall for fiscal 2002-03, which begins in July. But a soft economy has lowered revenues and could leave the state with at least $1 billion less to spend than was originally thought.

Tax Protest Comes to Raleigh

A year after lawmakers approved a $440 million tax hike, protesters gathered across from the Legislative Building on Monday determined to stop another increase. "We don't have a budget crisis. We have a spending crisis. It's an addition to spending," Jonathan Hill, state director of the anti-tax group Citizens for a Sound Economy, told about 175 people. The protest was the 17th stop in a series of 22 "Tar Heel Tea Parties" held around the state. The events are being organized by CSE and the conservative John Locke Foundation.

Bushwhacking Microsoft: The Economic Impact

Glenn Yago is the Director of Capital Studies at the Milken Institute. He is a consultant to Microsoft. The remedy proposed by the litigating states in U.S. v. Microsoft1 would require drastic changes in marketing and design practices that were not found to be anticompetitive by the Circuit Court of Appeals for the District of Columbia. More important, it would undermine both Microsoft’s ability and its incentives to produce software that consumers value.
