WHAT IS THE EMPOWERMENT ZONE?

BY Jeff Wilkinson

To combat poverty in their poorest neighborhoods, the cities of Columbia and Sumter five years ago jointly applied for a federal grant that promised to deliver $100 million to the two cities from 1999 to 2009. The “empowerment zone” grants were available through the U.S. Department of Housing and Urban Development. The Columbia-Sumter Empowerment Zone became one of 15 empowerment zones in the nation. It joined the ranks of those in Philadelphia, Boston, Atlanta and other large cities. And it would be the only joint zone in the country.

While activists favor cutting tax breaks, history does not

BY JAMES MAYER

The first bill Rep. Mark Hass pushed through the Legislature was an income tax credit for employers who offer scholarships to their workers. Hass, a Beaverton Democrat, has since become one of the Legislature's leading advocates for closer scrutiny of such breaks. But once they're approved, tax breaks are almost impossible to remove. Hass found that out last session when he proposed limiting the mortgage interest deduction for second homes. "I heard from every realtor in the state," he said.

The Last Gaffe?

BY Jacob Sullum

According to Jack Kemp, Gregory Mankiw committed a "gaffe" by declaring "there are no free lunches" when it comes to Social Security reform. In Washington, as Michael Kinsley has pointed out, a "gaffe" is an inconvenient truth spoken at an inopportune time. Mankiw's propensity for gaffes is the main reason I'll miss him when he steps down as chairman of President Bush's Council of Economic Advisers.

Groups rally to raise tax on cigarettes

BY David Steves

SALEM - Despite the governor's opposition to raising cigarette taxes, health-care and anti-smoking groups are still hoping to reinstate 10 cents of that tax. That portion of Oregon's cigarette tax, which had been $1.28 a pack, was part of an array of revenue raisers that the Legislature approved, Gov. Ted Kulongoski signed, but voters defeated in February as Measure 30.
