Sen. George Voinovich says a pending Senate bill that would address global warming by limiting U.S. greenhouse gas emissions is ineffective, would hurt the economy and spark higher energy prices. Voinovich is a guest on this week’s “America’s Business with Mike Hambrick” radio program.
“Basically, what it does is it ignores the international impact of greenhouse gases and just concentrates on the United States,” the Ohio Republican says about S. 2191, America’s Climate Security Act of 2007. “In addition, it really is a real blow to the jaw of the U.S economy.”
Frivolous lawsuits are tying up courts around the country. A Pacific Research Institute expert will talk to Mike about a report on states that are saints and sinners when it comes to tort costs and litigation risk.
March Madness, the college basketball championship season, is here. It would be hard to keep up with the action on the court without manufacturers such as Daktronics. We’ll visit the South Dakota electronic scoreboard maker.
“America’s Business” will explore issues important to state-level manufacturers in a conversation with officials from the Illinois Manufacturers’ Association and the Association of Washington Business. And we’ll find out how the Chattanooga Area Chamber of Commerce in Tennessee is pitching the region’s ample water supplies to attract manufacturers.
In our regular segments, Renee Giachino of America Justice Partnership gives us the latest on tort reform and commentator Hank Cox recalls the “The Way It Was.”
And the National Association of Manufacturers President Gov. John Engler will close the program with “The Last Word.”
