Senate to Move Forward on DISCLOSE Act Tomorrow

Big heads up: a cloture vote to move forward on the DISCLOSE Act is scheduled in the Senate tomorrow afternoon. Click here to call your Senators and urge them to vote No on cloture to keep the DISCLOSE Act from becoming law. FreedomWorks sent this key vote to the Hill this morning urging a No vote on the bill.  Here's an excerpt:

Cap and Trade Energy Tax Victories

President Obama's budget proposal working itself through Congress right now includes funding from a $600 billion cap and trade energy tax.  The plan would place a limit on the amount of carbon emissions that a firm is allowed to produce.  They can then sell their rights to carbon to other companies that wish to exceed their limit.  Cap and trade increases energy costs by restricting output and raising costs to producers.

Reconciliation, What Is It?

If you've been paying attention to what's going on in Washington recently, you've probably heard the word "reconciliation".  What is it?  It's a legislative process intended to allow a budget bill to be considered without filibuster.  In the Senate, it restricts debate to 20 hours and amendments are limited.  Without the option of filibuster, a bill in the Senate would only require 51 votes to pass.  A super majority of 60 votes is required to end a filibuster to move legislation normally.

McConnell Maneuvers for Permanent Internet Tax Ban Vote

BY

Senate Minority Leader Mitch McConnell and his allies are gamely continuing the fight for a vote on permanent extension of the internet tax moratorium.  It's a smart move, since majorities in both chambers support a permanent extension but leadership is denying a vote.  Details at Sen. McConnell's web site.

Permanent Internet Tax Ban Derailed on Capitol Hill

BY

Despite large bipartisan majorities in both Chambers, its looking like Congress won't even get to consider a permanent ban on discriminatory taxes on internet access. That's a shame, because the moratorium (which has been in place more or less since 1998) is a clear economic winner, and should become permanent law. Another multi-year extension just keeps uncertainty in the high-tech market. Here's a video montage from a Republican Senate press conference earlier this week calling for a permanent moratorium.
