GOP Conservatives in U.S. House Offer Cuts to Help Balance Budget

BY Mary M. Shaffrey

In 1994, Republicans won control of Congress by touting their "Contract with America." Twelve-years later, conservative Republicans, angered by the growing budget deficit and increased pork-barrel spending, proposed massive budget cuts that they say will help balance the budget by 2011. "House conservatives believe we must return to our 1994 roots of fiscal discipline and reform," said Rep. Mike Pence, R-Ind., the chairman of the Republican Study Committee, a group of more than 60 conservative members of the House who wield some influence within the party.

2 commissioners clarify a no-tax-increase pledge

BY Titan Barksdale

YADKINVILLE As the Yadkin County Board of Commissioners continues budget workshops this week, two commissioners who signed a pledge not to raise taxes are trying to clarify their intent when they signed the pledge. County Manager Cecil Wood has proposed a $30 million budget that maintains the tax rate at 68 cents for every $100 of assessed property value. But because property values generally increased under the recent revaluation, many residents are expected to see higher property-tax bills under the 2005-06 budget.

BY David Rice

In districts scattered across the state, legislators associated with Republican Co-Speaker Richard Morgan - who made an alliance with Democratic Co-Speaker Jim Black last year - are locked in angry battles before Tuesday's primary that focus on party betrayals and breaking no-tax-increase pledges:

BY Michael Hewlett

BY Michael Hewlett

The seven Republican candidates for the Forsyth County Board of Commissioners couldn't stop talking about taxes last night.

The candidates include two incumbents, Richard Linville and Gloria Whisenhunt. The others running in the July 20 primary are Lou Baldwin, Patricia Messick, Bob Parker, Bill Roberts and Bill Whiteheart. More than 30 people attended the forum.
