Lauren Hill, director of Policy Research for Gov. Dave Heineman, helps drive and shape policy issues on a daily basis for the state of Nebraska. She's seen a multitude of policies enacted over the years, but Friday praised the state's ongoing use of tobacco settlement funds as "landmark legislation."

to a two-year term. While unable to vote in the full House, a non-voting delegate may vote in a House committee of which the delegate is a member. The positions are now more permanent, having been supported by Congressional legislation (see Section 891, of Title 48 of the U. S. Code). However, this legislation stipulates that, "...the right to vote in committee shall be provided by the Rules of the House." Hence, if the delegate system or the individuals serving as delegates were to pose a threat to the institution of the House, the House majority could, without consulting the Senate or the President, discipline or ...
The Audacity of Logic: What Congress Bought Itself With Your $1 ...
Biggest spender: The second-highest-spending congressional office during the nine months was that of Democratic Rep. Jim Costa of California, who spent $1.3 million, with nearly a quarter of that being expenditures on staff. He was topped by fellow Democrat Pedro Pierluisi of Puerto Rico ($1.5 million), who cannot vote on legislation. Biggest expense: Benefits for retired federal employees took the largest slice of the pie, with the Federal Employees Retirement System showing some $80 million in expenditures.

That's the point underscored (and underscored again) by figures collated by the nonpartisan Sunlight Foundation, a nonprofit that uses technology to try to make government more transparent. In early June the organization released its latest massive data dump on the expenditures that House representatives make from their Members Representational Allowances, or MRAs. Separate from campaign accounts, which have to be filled through fundraising, these sums -- ranging from $1.3 million to $1.9 million in most cases -- come from taxpayers' dollars and are meant to cover a lawmaker's operating, rather than political, ... market research, surveys and trends

Citizens Concerned for the People of Iraq
n searching for evidence of the potential danger posed by Iraq, the Bush Administration need have looked no further than the well-kept record of U.S. manipulation of the sanctions program since 1991. If any international act in the last decade is sure to generate enduring bitterness toward the United States, it is the epidemic suffering needlessly visited on Iraqis via U.S. fiat inside the United Nations Security Council. Within that body, the United States has consistently thwarted Iraq from satisfying its most basic humanitarian needs, using sanctions as nothing less than a deadly weapon, and, despite recent ... industry trends, business articles and survey research

CPA tag comes under fire in 17B primary
Sheldon Anderson thinks he is, but Barrett, the House 17B Republican-endorsed candidate, disagrees. Anderson, the mayor of Wyoming who is challenging Barrett in the August 10 primary election, made the CPA title a campaign issue this week. There has also been a call by a Chisago County Republican delegate for Barrett to step down from the primary election. The CPA matter surfaced late last week when the Minnesota Board of Accountancy confirmed that Barrett’s CPA certificate was revoked by administrative action in May of 2008 after Barrett did not acquire a CPA license nor change his CPA status to inactive two years earlier. market trends, news research and surveys resources

WikiAnswers - What is a superdelegate
Superdelegates are non-elected voters who have the full power of delegates despite not being selected through primaries or caucuses. The Democratic National Committee is currently the only political party to appoint superdelegates or to have a weighted nomination system. The number of superdelegates appointed per state depends upon that state's population and Democratic voter registration, thereby giving more weight to states with stronger Democratic bases. There are 796 super-delegates to the 2008 Democratic National Convention, comprising nearly one fifth of the total number of delegates. About half of the super-delegates ...
Can someone explain the concept of delegates in an election ...
Who chooses delegates, and how can they vote a candidate into office when the people voted differently? If a democratic government is chosen by the people, how are these delegates given the power over the general populace? For example, if Bush lost the popular vote (which I presumed was the point of democracy), how did the delegates give him the presidency 8 years ago? If the delegates have the final say, why are we voting at all? This is a good question and one that many people are curious about. Let's first define delegate. A delegate is usually a loyal party member of some prominence in local politics. ...
