Congress Mulls Mortgage Guarantees; Critics See More Harm than Good Likely

BY Adam Brandon

Slow housing sales, falling property values, and rising mortgage defaults and foreclosures have prompted Congress to ready a bill to intervene in the housing market. But the bill's supporters face tough opposition from critics who believe it constitutes an unjustified bailout. The plan would grant taxpayer guarantees to refinance up to $300 billion in private mortgages across the nation.

Telecom Competition Comes to Indi

BY Arpan Sura

Implementing a plan for sweeping telecommunications deregulation, on March 14 Indiana Gov. Mitch Daniels (R) signed into law House Enrolled Act 1279, which the Indiana House and Senate had both passed by strong margins. State Sen. Brandt Hershman (R-Wheatfield), the bill's sponsor, promised "consumers will be the direct beneficiary of the process through greater competition and availability of the latest video technologies." He added, "With this reform, we could be first in the nation and one of the top destinations for telecommunications investment."

Tax-Hikers Win Colorado Ballot Initiative

BY Max Pappas

Colorado voters on November 1 approved Referendum C, a measure to give up nearly $4 billion in tax rebates over the next five years and permanently increase the cap on spending in the state's constitution. They rejected Referendum D, which would have allowed Colorado lawmakers to borrow $2.1 billion. Both votes were close: 52-48 percent to approve Referendum C, and 51-49 percent to reject Referendum D. Turnout was low: 46 percent compared to 87 percent in the November 2004 election.

Big Spending Ignites Revolt in Palm Beach

BY Robert F. Sanchez

Until its Election Day 2000 debacle with butterfly ballots and hanging chads, Florida's ritzy Palm Beach County was best known nationally as a winter playground for the rich and famous. It had polo grounds, pricey shops, the Kennedy family compound, and Donald Trump's posh golf resort. It is the headquarters of Rush Limbaugh's "Southern Command."

The legislature relied on nearly half-a-billion dollars in tax increases and one-time revenue sources and left $200 million in reserve, less than 1 percent of the total budget.
