Taxing in a Recession?

Earlier this month, Pennsylvania Governor Ed Rendell proposed new tax increases to shrink the upcoming 1.7 billion dollar budget deficit. Governor Rendell has already resorted to Orwellian tactics. In an effort to collect from people who owe back-taxes, the Governor proposed an amnesty program which reduces the penalties and half the interest will be waived before the June 18th deadline. The State spent three million dollars in advertisements for this program, and the video is ‘Big-Brother-esque’ warning citizens “We know who you are.”

Issue Analysis 118 - The Arctic National Wildlife Refuge: To Drill or Not to Drill?

Oil exploration in the Arctic National Wildlife Refuge (ANWR) has become one of the most politically contentious provisions of the debate over national energy policy. Assessments show that there are likely to be significant quantities of oil in ANWR and that this could add appreciably to domestic supplies. However, recovering this oil is certain to have impacts on the region’s environment. The question for policymakers is whether these environmental impacts are so significant that they should preclude all exploration and production, or whether they are minimal and manageable.

Issue Analysis 116 - Oregon Plan Can Reignite the Flame of Internet Tax Freedom

At the time of writing, 16 states are considering legislation to enlist in a “cooperating sovereignty” arrangement to force out-of-state businesses to collect their taxes. Two versions of the legislation exist: one proposed by the original cartel, the “Streamlined Sales and Use Tax Project,” (SSTP) and a slightly different version proposed by the National Conference of State Legislators (NCSL).

Issue Analysis 111 - Broadband Forced Access: Still a Solution in Search of a Problem

Forced access regulation would compel cable companies to provide non-discriminatory use of their lines to competing Internet Service Providers (ISPs). The goal is to ensure that ISPs that do not own cable lines can use existing cable the lines to reach their customers in the same way and on the same terms as IPSs owned by cable companies.

Issue Analysis 110 - Policy Prescriptions vs. Policy Palliatives in the Prescription Drug Debate

America’s senior citizens have become increasingly dependent upon prescription drugs for their heath care needs. Unfortunately, the hyper-centralized design of Medicare has prevented a prescription drug benefit from becoming readily available to seniors. Several bills currently under consideration in Congress offer possible remedies. Vice President Al Gore and Gov. George W. Bush of Texas also have offered plans to address this issue.

Issue Analysis 109 - Clearing the Air: The Environmental Record in Texas

Given the dynamics of the 2000 presidential race, special interest groups, politicians, and the media have focused great attention on environmental quality in the state of Texas. Vice President Al Gore and his allies portray Texas as an environmental wasteland, and lay this alleged catastrophe squarely at the feet of Gov. George W. Bush. However, an objective look at the environment in Texas shows that, while there are unquestionably challenges remaining, the state has made significant progress over the past five years.

Issue Analysis 106 - Protecting the Trial Lawyer Monopoly: The Assault on State and Federal Binding Arbitration

Summary When Alabama CSE was listening to its members talk about civil justice reform during “CSE Day” at the State Capitol, the most profound wisdom came from a college student. He put it simply, “If you know the two things that rule the world, [they are] money and power. Arbitration takes both of those away from the attorneys.”
