Education initiative heading for November ballot

BY Shawn Skager

This November, Washington State voters will have the opportunity to affect the future of education in the state by voting for or against Initiative 884. With more than 327,000 signatures awaiting verification, I-884 looks likely to make the November 2004 ballot. I-884 seeks to raise the state retail sales tax by one percent, with revenue collected going toward the Education Trust Fund (ETF). “We’ve seen a decline in education funding the last 10 years,” Natalie Reber, the Director of Communications for the Education Trust Fund said.

A new Insider Advantage Poll in the Sunshine State finds Bush and Kerry tied with 46 percent each. In Missouri, a Market Research Institute Survey gives Kerry 76 percent to Bush's 44 percent, Ralph Nader receiving one percent.

NADER-KERRY Relations

BY Avery Johnson

Mr. Nader, the Green Party's presidential candidate in 2000, pledged to run as an independent in March and courted endorsements of the Green Party and the Reform Party. The Reform Party endorsed him, but the Green Party instead nominated longtime activist David Cobb. Without a convention of his own, Mr. Nader views the Democratic and Republican gatherings as ways to attract much-needed attention to his campaign. During the Democratic Convention, he expects to place an opinion piece in the Boston Globe on withdrawing from Iraq and other issues that Democrats won't discuss at the convention. He will also appear on a major talk show, says Nader spokesman Kevin Zeese. "We're still hoping for 'Good Morning America,' " Mr. Nader says.

The Incredible Shrinking Deficit

©2004 Copley News Service, Jack Kemp Liberals are beside themselves. The so-called "structural" deficits that Paul Krugman and other left-wing economists have been fretting about are evaporating before their very eyes as a result of the Bush tax-rate reductions, which have ushered in a robust economic expansion. According to new data, the 2004 deficit will be slightly more than $400 billion this year, nearly $100 billion below estimates from earlier this year. That's what happens when you plug into the supply side of the economy.

Florida State Supreme Court Blocks Vote on Increased Homestead Tax Exemption

Last Thursday, the Florida State Supreme Court rejected the ballot initiative to double the property tax exemption from $25,000 to $50,000. In a 5-2 ruling, the justices said the amendment’s ballot language falsely assured voters that it would provide “property tax relief,” pointing out that city and county governments could just increase the tax rate to make up for the increased exemption. CSE South Florida Director John Hallman commented:
