BACK TO SCHOOL LUNCH - MICHELLE MINTON

Back to School Lunch Scares
 

Here are a few tips to help you relax as you send your kids off into the great wide nutritional unknown. Soda won’t kill your kids. There is no doubt that excessive consumption of sugary drinks through soda or fruit juice can easily lead to a calorie surplus and weight gain. However, the occasional can of sports drink after a soccer game isn’t likely to cause any damage. > Read more

EPA POWER PLANT RULE - MARLO LEWIS

 

Clean Energy Incentive Program: New Unlawful Element in EPA’s Power Plant Rule?
 

EPA’s recently finalized Clean Power Plan (CPP) contains a key policy initiative not discussed or even mentioned in the proposed rule: the Clean Energy Incentive Program (CEIP). EPA will award extra emission allowances and emission rate credits to states that “act early” to increase generation from wind and solar power and/or reduce electricity demand via energy-efficiency measures. You might suppose EPA would explain the legal authority for a substantive policy change affecting potentially hundreds of regulated entities. So what accounts for this curious omission?  > Read more

NLRB "JOINT EMPLOYER" RULING - IAIN MURRAY


The Administration Is about to Upend American Business Practices
 

It is probably the biggest change in American employment law since the National Labor Relations Act and its reform in the 1930s and ‘40s, but it could happen without the general public realizing it. The National Labor Relations Board (NLRB, a product of that 1930s legislation) is expected to rule any day now in a case that will affect thousands of businesses. Firms are bracing themselves for the fall-out. > Read more

TRADE NEGOTIATIONS - FRAN SMITH 

 

Thorny Issues in Trans-Pacific Partnership Negotiations

 

Trade negotiators from 12 countries left Maui at the end of July 2015 without reaching a final agreement on the Trans-Pacific Partnership (TPP), a massive trade pact among countries that represent about 40 percent of the world economy. It’s ironic that this deal—portrayed as an agreement to open important Pacific Rim markets—is being held up by traditional protectionist tactics as countries seek to protect key industries. > Read more

CEI Today: Regulation, the NLRB, mass transit commutes, and more

REGULATION - WAYNE CREWS

 
Forbes: A Comprehensive Regulatory Reform Agenda, Barack Obama Veto Pen Notwithstanding
 
Congress passes a few dozen laws each year, but regulators meanwhile  issue several thousand rules and regulations. On top of that, “regulatory dark matter“ like presidential and agency memos, guidance documents, bulletins and press releases may enact policy directly or indirectly. When it comes to federal regulation and red tape, I like to break it down into (1) the existing hairball and (2) what hasn’t happened yet. > Read the Forbes commentary
 

PARTISAN LABOR RELATIONS BOARD - TREY KOVACS

 

Defund the Partisan NLRB

Evidence is aplenty that the NLRB acts as a stooge for organized labor at the expense of equality in bargaining power. The recently implemented ambush election rule is front and center. > Read more 

MASS TRANSIT COMMUTES - MARC SCRIBNER

 

Long Mass Transit Commutes Are Horrible for Your Health

 

I personally find it hilarious that transit boosters implicitly accept that the direct mobility benefits of transit are so low that they need to fling every possible co-benefit spaghetti at the wall in order to justify unjustifiable mass transit subsidies. But to you who drive alone to work and are now scared your car is secretly killing you, don’t worry. It’s the transit riders with commutes twice as long as yours who may need to worry. > Read more

Sen. Warren Gets Hit on Trade Issues

The Constitutional Limits of the
Endangered Species Act

What limits does the Constitution place on federal regulations under the ESA? Should Congress resolve that issue instead of the courts? Would endangered species be better protected or worse off if PETPO prevails in court or S. 1142 is enacted?

Townhall - Don't Let Unions Get Your Phone Number & Email Address 

logo

 

 

 

 

Protect Your Privacy!

Starting April 14, the National Labor Relations Board (NLRB) will require businesses to surrender lists of employees’ phone numbers and personal email addresses to union organizers. Giving away employees’ personal contact information violates basic privacy rights and will inevitably lead to workers being targeted for harassment at the hands of union bosses.

Congress is getting ready to vote on a Congressional Review Act resolution that will tell the NLRB to stop using government power to benefit union bosses.

Tell Washington that you want to protect your privacy by sending a virtual “Do Not Disturb” letter. Click here and send a letter to Congress. Your support is critical to protect workers’ privacy rights.

Unlike the government's proposal, this letter is voluntary!

ALG's Daily Grind - GOP to push for short-term continuing resolution if Obama amnesty goes forward

Nov. 14, 2014

Permission to republish original opeds and cartoons granted.

GOP to push for short-term continuing resolution if Obama amnesty goes forward
Without the power of the purse in hand, Republicans would have no way to fight against Obama's usurpation, granting amnesty to 4.5 million illegal immigrants. 

Time is up for wind production tax credits
A reasonable statement of belief that wind energy just needs a little help to get off the ground and become financially viable. And it was reasonable, in 1983, when it was made. 

Businesses are bracing for rush of pro-labor rulings
The National Labor Relations Board is expected to release a flurry of pro-labor decisions by mid-December, when Democrats could lose their majority on the federal agency.
