Delaware Valley Journal: Pennsylvania Rail Regulator Has Opportunity To Help Consumers, Economy

While new powers in Washington may feel a reflexive need to regulate more – undoing parts of the Trump administration’s policies – rail regulation at the STB should not be part of this agenda. In fact, the past regulatory reforms noted here were all spearheaded as Democratic policies, and they worked. For these reasons, the […]

Town Hall: New York Should Ditch “Big Is Bad”

While much of the political attention around antitrust reform has centered on the House of Representatives and U.S. Senate, legislators at the state level are also proposing punitive reforms that continue to articulate an outdated presumption that “big is bad.” New York, the state home to 54 Fortune 500 companies, is currently considering antitrust legislation to enshrine “big is […]

OECD Minimum Tax Rate Hurts the U.S. Economy

Last year, the Organization for Economic Cooperation and Development (OECD) announced its two-pillar proposal to pursue the goals of transferring tax rights between nations, targeting profits of larger companies and multinational corporations, and instituting a cross-border minimum tax rate.

An Election with National Consequences

Few observers would have expected Alabama, a state with an 8% unionization rate and rigid right-to-work laws, to be the frontline in what has become one of the most pivotal labor battles in the last decade.

Inside Sources: The PRO Act Undermines Worker Freedom

Since 1943, 27 states across the country have implemented right-to-work laws. Those laws ban unions from compelling workers to join, amounting to over $400 in membership dues each year. Despite the overwhelming popularity and the economic prosperity right-to-work laws have brought to states, politicians are now seeking to repeal them. President Joe Biden made repealing right-to-work laws a central pillar […]

Sun-Sentinel: Florida’s Big Government Approach on Tackling Big Tech

If content moderation is the concern, it should be the U.S. Congress that revisits the current law, called Section 230, which provides specific rules to tech platform service providers. Having 50 states develop their own balkanized rules is counterproductive and grossly inefficient to the provision of national online services that consumers demand. Big government is not […]

Real Clear Health: Policymakers –Stop Ignoring the Science on Vapes

When it comes to the use of e-cigarettes, the science is clear: they are not only safer, but they also help people quit.

It’s Time to Reform Free-Standing Emergency Rooms

According to data from the Centers for Disease Control, there were 130 million visits to emergency departments in 2020.
