Issue Analysis 115 - "Sprawl" in North Carolina: The Rest of the Story

Alarmists have warned that so-called "urban sprawl" is devouring North Carolina, threatening the environment and quality of life. A closer look reveals that while developed areas have grown substantially, the vast majority of the state is still undeveloped, the pace of development has slowed, and other states have seen far more rapid growth. Rather than statewide "growth-management" plans or federal intervention, striking a balance between growth, development, and environmental conservation requires a common-sense approach that limits the scope of government.

Pros, Cons Besiege Edwards Over Ashcroft Vote

BY John Wagner

WASHINGTON -- Tar Heels on both sides of the confirmation battle over John Ashcroft say it provides a telling test of Democratic Sen. John Edwards' political allegiances. Civil-rights groups and pro-choice organizations - key Democratic constituencies - are counting on Edwards to stand with them against Ashcroft, President Bush's nominee for attorney general, whose views they consider extreme.

North Carolina: Don't Bet on a Lottery

South Carolina’s recent vote to allow a state lottery has renewed pressure on the Tar Heel State to introduce a lottery. Proponents claim a lottery is necessary to improve education, pointing to lottery programs in nearby Virginia and Georgia as models. Hopefully, North Carolinians will see this latest lottery proposal for what it is – a bait-and-switch proposal that allegedly will improve education. In fact, a North Carolina lottery is simply an expansion of government. Traditionally, North Carolina lottery proposals have been defeated by a left-right coalition rallying behind the detrimental social ills linked to gambling. But there also exists a strong economic argument against the proposed lottery. Contrary to popular myths, lotteries are not stable sources of revenue, there is no link between lotteries and school funding, and a lottery is not likely to reduce political pressure to raise taxes.

Tech Bytes - Tid Bits in Tech News: Telecom Consumers Have Reasons to be Encouraged

Two announcements made on Monday signal that the old world of heavy-handed government regulation of American telecommunications might be coming to an end. The Bush administration formally appointed Michael Powell as the new Chairman of the Federal Communications Commission (FCC). Shortly thereafter, the FCC announced that it had approved SBC’s 271 (long-distance) applications in both Oklahoma and Kansas.

CSE Applauds Bush Education Initiative

WASHINGTON-Today, Citizens for a Sound Economy praised the content of President Bush’s first “official” proposal. The President’s education initiative took a huge step in the right direction by making the educational needs of America’s children its top consideration. CSE was particularly pleased that the final proposal included a school choice program that will allow the parents of poor students in failing schools to apply the federal aid their schools receive-about $1500 a year-to tuition for private schools or better-performing public schools.
