CAGW TO CONGRESSMAN TAUZIN: STOP MEDDLING AT THE FCC

Citizens Against Government Waste today chided House Energy and Commerce Committee Chairman Billy Tauzin (R-La.) for improperly meddling in the Federal Communication Commission’s rule-making process.

“We agree with Senate Commerce, Science and Technology Committee Chairman John McCain (R-Ariz.) that it was inappropriate for Chairman Tauzin to call an FCC commissioner on the carpet during consideration of a critical rule that affects the future of the entire telecommunications industry,” said CAGW President Tom Schatz.

Senate Supplemental Earmarks

EDUCATION

Youth Offenders Eligibility and Award Change

(unknown cost)

The item changes the eligible age limit from 25 to 35 (GREAT, I'M A 'YOUTH' AGAIN!) and expands the individual award cap from $1,500 to $2,500.  This is inconsistent with the President's '03 budget request which terminates the program in light of its redundancy with federally funded activities in other vocational and adult education programs.  The main impact of this item is that 481,000 prisoners between age 25 and 35 will now be eligible for these Federally funded awards.
