Michigan CSE Mobilizes to Stop Governor Granholm’s Latest Tax Hike Scheme

Armed with misleading figures about Michigan’s budget deficit, Governor Jennifer Granholm’s latest tax-and-spend scheme is a $295 million tobacco tax increase, a potentially devastating, regressive tax that will cost Michigan jobs, particularly in county border areas. Even worse, a provision in Granholm’s plan would reverse current Michigan law that allows the state’s Single Business Tax (SBT) to be reduced as economic times improve. Check out the following links for more information on Granholm’s latest plan to raise taxes:

CSE Salutes Anti-Tax Organizing Efforts Among Alabama Political Parties

After voters overwhelmingly crushed a billion dollar state tax increase at the polls last September, Alabama's political class continues to come to terms with the new anti-tax reality. CSE salutes elected officials, both Republicans and Democrats, who oppose high taxes and more spending. The Alabama debate featured a split in the state Republican Party, as a pro-tax GOP Governor and some legislators squared off against the anti-tax party faithful.

Bringing U.S. Telecom Regs Up to Speed

Recently, the United States Court of Appeals released a sternly worded decision that could unleash a new era of competition and innovation in the telecommunications sector. The Court rebuked the Federal Communications Commission for its stifling regulatory regime, which has hampered investment in critical telecommunications infrastructure and technological innovation. At the same time, the Court upheld recent actions taken by the FCC to shield broadband deployment from much of the regulatory morass surrounding more traditional telephone services. In light of the decision, the FCC is on notice to develop new policies that will promote the real competition envisioned by Congress when it passed the 1996 Telecommuncations Act.

A Raw Deal

The recent European Commission’s (EC’s) decision declaring Microsoft in violation of competition law will have long lasting effects in the technology marketplace. It sets a dangerous precedent for excessive government intervention in the marketplace. In fact, the EC intends to govern and regulate Microsoft’s future behavior, including what upgrades and innovations are permitted and how much source code it must share with competitors. The EC also recommends a record $613 million fine, the largest it has ever levied. While good news to a handful of competitors who stand to gain market share, the decision will slow innovation in the high technology sector while placing the interests of the consumers on the back burner.

Bedford special election must draw 50 percent of voters

BY SCOTT DOLAN

BEDFORD — The school board decided last night to accept one of two citizens’ petitions to hold a special election under legal advice that 50 percent of the voters must turn out for the election to be valid. The decision came just 16 days after Bedford’s last election, at which voters rejected a joint proposal for the town’s own high school and a 20-year contract with Manchester schools. With roughly 13,000 registered voters, about 6,500 would have to come out for the election. About 7,800 voted March 9, when the high school and 20-year contract were rejected.

Arrogant board members

BY SUE SKINNER

As a nonparent, small business owner, taxpayer and long-time citizen of Astoria, I voted for the bond measure to remodel Gray Elementary School because it was promoted as a way to secure the future of neighborhood schools in our town. Upon attending the Astoria School Board meeting of March 11, I was surprised to discover that Gray School is now being “restructured” to warehouse kindergarten students and serve as administration offices.
