COST OF REGULATION - WAYNE CREWS

Forbes: Hairball: The Cost Of Federal Regulation To The U.S. Economy

 

Before the National Association of Manufacturers even had a chance to release their important new report today on the aggregate annual cost of federal regulations, left-wing groups decided to attack the numbers. They disliked an earlier report ... that found regulatory costs of $1.75 trillion annually, and struck pre-emptively.


No one need credit politically motivated attacks like this anymore. The ongoing, actually inexcusable, official uncertainty over the aggregate costs of U.S. federal regulations despite over a decade of Office of Management and Budget reports to Congress on the benefits and costs raises concern, not about those trying to measure, but on the fact that the largest government on earth has no map of itself when it comes to regulation. > Read more

EPA RENEWABLE FUEL PRODUCTION QUOTA - MARLO LEWIS

 

Globalwarming.org: Scaling Back Renewable Fuel Standard Will Decrease Greenhouse Gas Emissions

EPA is expected to announce the final 2014 renewable fuel standard (RFS) production quota anytime now. As The Hill and other news sources have reported, the agency appears to have flip-flopped, initially proposing to lower the RFS but now poised to increase it. But according to EPA's own analysis, an increase in that standard would lead to more greenhouse gas emissions, not less.

EXPORT-IMPORT BANK - RYAN YOUNG

Ex-Im Bank is pro-business, but not pro-markets


In Thursday’s Washington Times, National Association of Manufacturers President Jay Timmons and I have dueling op-eds, with Timmons favoring reauthorizing Ex-Im, and me wanting to end it. The Wall Street Journal also weighed in with an editorial this morning, sharing my skepticism of Ex-Im. > Read more

CEI Today: Ex-Im Bank, Obamacare subsidies, EPA renewable fuel mandate, and labor union losses

EXPORT-IMPORT BANK - RYAN YOUNG

Washington Times: Ex-Im Bank is pro-business, but not pro-markets


Congress is back in session, and will likely vote soon on one of the most contentious issues leading into the midterm elections: the Export-Import Bank. The 80-year-old bank, called Ex-Im Bank for short, subsidizes financing for U.S. exporters and their foreigncustomers. > Read more

OBAMACARE SUBSIDIES - HANS BADER

Federal Obamacare Officials Once Recognized the Falsity of Their Current Argument about Tax Credits


​The Obama administration has claimed that despite recurring language in the Obamacare law limiting tax credits to people who buy insurance on an “exchange established by the state,” such taxpayer subsidies are also available to people who buy insurance on the federal exchange, Healthcare.gov.

But the government itself once recognized that credits are limited to state-based exchanges. In light of that discovery, CEI has submitted two FOIA requests, one to 
HHS headquarters, and one to the Centers for Medicaid & Medicare Services, seeking additional information relevant to the government’s about-face. > Read more

EPA'S RENEWABLE FUEL PRODUCTION QUOTAS - MARLO LEWIS

 

Globalwarming.org: Scaling Back Renewable Fuel Standard

EPA Administrator Gina McCarthy has indicated that new federal renewable fuel production quotas, originally due in June, will be released soon. CEI's Marlo Lewis has explained why EPA may be less enamoured by ethanol mandates these days. "EPA estimates that ... corn ethanol’s carbon dioxide-equivalent (CO2e) emissions were 33% higher than gasoline’s in 2012."

EXPORT-IMPORT BANK - RYAN YOUNG

Ex-Im Update


Congress comes back from its annual August recess this week. One of the top items on its agenda is deciding the Export-Import Bank’s fate. Ex-Im subsidizes financing for U.S. exporters and their foreign customers. As I outlined here, Ex-Im subsidizes certain businesses at others’ expense. It is a pro-business policy, when what the economy needs are pro-market policies. Ex-Im will also be forced to shut its doors unless Congress reauthorizes its charter by the end of September, making for a golden reform opportunity for corporate welfare opponents.  > Read more

UN CLIMATE TALKS - MYRON EBELL

The Hill: Climate talks: Five things to know


“The United States is proposing that every country propose its own action plan for controlling and reducing emissions, and that all of these action plans be rolled into one big document, and that’s the agreement,” said Myron Ebell, a senior fellow at the Competitive Enterprise Institute, which watches the negotiations.

Ebell thinks it’s pretty clear-cut, and that any international agreement would require the Senate’s approval.

“It should worry a lot of people that the Executive Branch is trying to work around the Constitution,” he said. > Read more
