Tom Leppert, Dr. Karen Garza, City Employees are Looking at What?, and More in Chad’s Steaming Pile
Here are just a few things in Chad’s Pile that you will hear on Lubbock’s First News this morning. Give Chad your feedback on the steaming topics.
1. Tom Leppert and Dr. Karen Garza on the show
Former Dallas Mayor and current GOP candidate for the U.S. Senate, Tom Leppert, will be in studio on Wednesday. We will discuss his campaign and how he would put people back to work. Tune in at 7am to hear him. At 8am, we will have LISD Superintendent, Dr. Karen Garza, on the show to discuss LISD test scores, the new school year and more. Your questions will be welcomed.
2. City of Lubbock Porn-Gate
According to a local TV station, porn-gate was thought to have included over 100 employees of the City of Lubbock. Lubbock's City Manager has denied that hundreds were involved, but it still amazes me that in 2011 people would still browse the internet for porn while at work. It's not a good idea folks, don't do it.
3. Obama v. Boehner (link)
It's Boehner vs. Obama again, but this time on government regulation. According to FOX News:
In a letter to Boehner, Mr. Obama writes that his executive order earlier this year "called for an ambitious Government-wide review of rules now on the books" which the president says is now complete. He adds that the review led to cuts from 26 agencies, generating more than $10 billion in savings over 5 years.
President Obama replied Tuesday with a list of seven proposed rules with an estimated economic impact of over $1 billion. The various proposed regulations apply to the Environmental Protection Agency and Department of Transportation, ranging in rough costs from $1 billion for DOT hours of service regulations, to as much as $90 billion for ozone air standards.
Boehner's office answered Obama's letter with a statement Tuesday afternoon bashing the seven regulations.
"The combined cost of these seven new regulatory actions alone could be more than $100 billion," the statement read. "These costs will be felt by the American people in the form of fewer jobs and slower economic growth."
