Jesse Hathaway talks with Sheila Weinberg, the founder and CEO of Truth in Accounting (TIA), about a new annual report published by the watchdog group tracking and ranking the financial outlook of all 50 states.
In this episode of the weekly Budget & Tax News podcast, managing editor and research fellow Jesse Hathaway is joined by Mercatus Center senior research fellow Daniel Griswold, talking about why “globalization” is not a dirty word, despite what politicians may be telling people this year.
A new report published by the Congressional Budget Office, a nonpartisan federal government agency, estimates a bill awaiting a vote in the U.S. Senate, the Sentencing Reform and Corrections Act (SRCA), would reduce federal spending by $722 million over the next 10 years. SRCA, sponsored by Sens. Chuck Grassley, R-Iowa, and Richard Durbin, D-Illinois, would revise federally mandated minimum sentences for individuals convicted of some non-violent federal crimes.
