REPORT: EPA'S CLEAN POWER PLAN OVERREACH - WILLIAM YEATMAN


Agency Does Not Merit Chevron Deference to Implement Burdensome Rule

Monday, July 27, 2015
In the News Today

 

EXPORT-IMPORT BANK - RYAN YOUNG


Senate Advances Ex-Im Bank
 

Reauthorization votes are typically dull affairs. But this year’s fight over the Export-Import Bank’s reauthorization is anything but. On Sunday, the Senate voted 67-26 to advance a plan to reauthorize the Export-Import Bank, expired since the end of June. For most of its history, the Export-Import Bank has directed most of its benefits to a handful of large, politically connected firms. In other words, its main function is to dispense corporate welfare. > Read more about the Ex-Im Bank


> Interview Ryan Young
 

HIGHWAY BILL - MARC SCRIBNER


Highway Bill Bailout and Spending Schemes Put America’s Roads and Bridges at Risk

 

With the federal highway bill set to expire at the end of July and the highway fund itself projected to run multi-billion dollar deficits in the years ahead, CEI transportation policy expert Marc Scribner warns against ill-considered plans to increase the regressive federal fuel tax or else shift the highway cost burden away from people who actually use the roadways. > Read more

DODD FRANK ANNIVERSARY

DODD-FRANK HARMS MAIN STREET - IAIN MURRAY 


Dodd-Frank’s Dire Legacy: The Durbin Amendment

 

This week is the fifth anniversary of the passage of the Wall Street Reform and Consumer Protection Act, better known as Dodd-Frank.  It has harmed consumers by reducing choice in financial services and failed to solve the problems it was purported to solve, as I outline in my new paper, How Dodd Frank Harms Main Street. One of the worst examples of this stems from the Durbin Amendment, a last minute addition to the bill that gives the Federal Reserve the power to cap interchange fees  charged by debit and credit card networks. > Read more

NATIONAL JUNK FOOD DAY? - MICHELLE MINTON


Happy “No Food is Junk Food” Day!
 

National Junk Food Day is a good opportunity to address the myth of junk food. I say myth because junk food is an oxymoron; there’s no such thing.  > Read more

DODD FRANK ANNIVERSARY

DODD-FRANK HARMS MAIN STREET - IAIN MURRAY 


How Dodd-Frank Harms Main Street
