VOTES ON REG REFORM - WAYNE CREWS & RYAN YOUNG

CEI Today: Taxpayer gift to Big Labor, class action abuse, climate change agreement, and crowdfunding 

Monday, December 14, 2015
In the News Today

 

TAXPAYER GIFT TO BIG LABOR - TREY KOVACS

How to keep Fairfax teachers in the classroom


Fairfax schools grant government unions a subsidy, known as release time, which allows teachers to perform union business instead of their public duties while being paid by taxpayers. An easy cut for the school system to make without taking anything away from children’s education. > Read the Washington Post oped


> Interview Trey Kovacs

 

SUPREME COURT & CLASS ACTION ABUSE - TED FRANK

CCAF Asks Supreme Court to Hear Challenge on Duracell Class Action Settlement


The Center for Class Action Fairness petitioned the Supreme Court to hear a case challenging an abusive class action practice where trial lawyers pay themselves the bulk of the cash recovery ($5.7 million), the class members receive just a fraction of that ($344,000), and the settlement hands out millions to third parties who are not part of the class. > Read more

CROWDFUNDING - JOHN BERLAU

Help the Small and Nimble Get a Start Going Public


Letting ordinary Americans invest in the early stages of high-growth firms “has long been the dream” of equity crowdfunding advocates. This “dream” was very much the reality for small investors before the costly mandates of the Sarbanes-Oxley Act of 2002 and the Dodd-Frank Act of 2010. > Read the WSJ letter

CEI Today: UN climate conference, Big Labor against McDonald's, and fantasy sports betting

Friday, November 20, 2015
In the News Today

 

UN CLIMATE CONFERENCE - CHRIS HORNER

How to halt the president’s climate change ploy


The perpetual and ever-constricting reductions Mr. Obama will promise in Paris are of emissions from our most reliable, affordable energy sources. What about China and other large emitters? They vow to double their emissions by 2030, as they seek economic growth. > Read the Washington Times commentary

> Interview Chris Horner

 

BIG LABOR - TREY KOVACS

NLRB Attack on McDonald's


On top of the NLRB’s lack of transparency, its attack on McDonald’s is blatant political payback. Even the NLRB’s General Counsel Richard Griffin acknowledges that the “sole” reason the agency is pursuing the case against McDonald’s is because of the multi-million union campaign known as “Fight for $15.” > Read more

FANTASY SPORTS BETTING - MICHELLE MINTON

Fantasy sports betting isn't a federal crime, as no sports betting should be


The aggressive advertising campaigns of fantasy sports betting sites has raised some eyebrows, and now one lawmaker is calling for an investigation into their legal status. While some may see the hearing as a threat to the big business of fantasy sports betting, it may just be a chance for Congress to address the ludicrous federal ban on actual sports betting. > Read the Newsday commentary
