House & Senate Reach Tentative Deal On Tax and Trade; Appropriations Punted To February 2007

             As of Thursday, December 7, 2006, it looked like House and Senate negotiators had reached an agreement on a package of tax and trade measures that could be passed before the 109th Congress adjourns sine die at the end of the week. Legislative language, however, had not been released by Thursday afternoon, fueling speculation that both bodies may have to stay in through late Friday to get the deal done.

             The package, estimated to cost about $40 billion, contains extensions for several popular tax breaks, including the research and experimentation tax credit which expired last December. The R&D tax credit, as it is known, would be extended two years through 2007 (retroactive to January 1, 2006), and include a change in the way the formula for calculating the credit is figured. The cost of the provision is estimated to be about $16.5 billion. The R&D tax credit is strongly supported by California corporations, especially those in the biotech and high tech industries.

             Extensions of the welfare-to-work tax credit and the credit for college tuition payments are also included in the bill.

             The trade portion of the bill will contain legislation granting permanent normal trade relations status to Vietnam and trade benefits to Haiti, and may extend some other trade preferences.

             The package has also picked up some additional provisions, including the offshore drilling bill passed by the Senate earlier this year. That legislation opens up some of the Gulf coast to further oil exploration, and gives the Gulf states a greater share of the royalties collected. It does not include more controversial language that an earlier House-passed bill contained which would have allowed California, and other west coast states to “opt-in” or “opt-out” of expanded offshore drilling.

             The tax and trade agreement is also expected to include language delaying a proposed 5 percent cut in Medicare payments to physicians.

             On the Appropriations front, it is expected that the House and Senate on Friday, December 8 will pass a Continuing Resolution to keep the government funded through February 15, 2007. Only two appropriations bills, those governing Defense and Homeland Security, have been enacted by the 109th Congress, necessitating the CR.


Democrats Select Committee Chairs: California Count Up To Three So Far

             On Wednesday, December 6, 2006, House Democratic leaders selected the Members to chair most House committees when the 110th Congress convenes in January, and the House Democratic Caucus (all Democratic members) ratified the choices on Thursday. Rep. George Miller was selected as Chairman of the Education and Workforce Committee, Rep. Henry Waxman was tapped to chair the Government Reform Committee, and Rep. Tom Lantos will be Chairman of the International Relations Committee.

             The Democratic Steering and Policy Committee, which selects members who are typically ratified by the full caucus, generally chooses the most senior members on a panel to serve as chair or ranking member; this cycle fit that pattern. However, despite voting internally in favor of Rep. Bob Filner’s bid to chair the House Veterans’ Affairs Committee, the Steering Committee opted to allow the final decision on the post to be made on Friday by the full Democratic Caucus.

             Last week, Speaker-designate Nancy Pelosi tapped Silvestre Reyes (TX) to chair the Select Intelligence Committee; ranking Democrat Jane Harman had reached the maximum term of service on the panel.

             Rep. Juanita Millender-McDonald remains the leading contender to chair the House Administration Committee.


Republicans Leaders Choose Top Committee Posts: Lewis Keeps Appropriations Ranking, Dreier Rules

             On Wednesday, December 6, 2006, the House Republican Steering Committee made selections for a number of ranking member assignments for 110th Congress Committees. Among those choices was the retention of Rep. Jerry Lewis (Redlands) as top Republican on the House Appropriations Committee. With Republicans in control of the 109th Congress, Lewis had taken over the chairmanship of Appropriations only two years before.

             Republican Leader John Boehner has chosen Rep. David Dreier to retain the top rank on the House Rules Committee. Dreier had already hit and exceeded the 6-year term limit normally applied to GOP chairs; he had been given special dispensation to remain Rules Committee Chairman during the 109th Congress, and he was expected to move to another panel if the Republicans had retained the majority. But with the change in House control resetting some clocks, and particularly given the fact that the top Rules job is at the sole discretion of the lead in the party, Boehner decided to ask Dreier to remain the Ranking Minority Member on the Rules Committee for the 110th Congress.

             On Thursday, December 7, the Steering Committee backed a number of ranking member selections. Two more Californians are expected to retain their top ranks. Rep. Buck McKeon (Santa Clarita) is considered the leading candidate to remain Ranking Republican on the Education & Workforce Committee (which is expected to revert to its former name, “Education & Labor”, when Democrats take over in January. Likewise, Rep. Duncan Hunter (Alpine) is likely to be confirmed as retaining the Armed Services Committee top Republican for the 110th Congress.

             Final full committee chairmanships for both parties are slated for completion on Friday.


California Research University Network Briefs Congressional Delegation Staff Re Breakthroughs Underwritten By DOD Research Funding

             On December 5, 2006, the California Institute of Technology, Stanford University, University of California and University of Southern California held a luncheon to present the scientific advances made by several California academic experts professors using research funding from the U.S. Department of Defense (DoD). Defense basic research, also known as 6.1 research, is part of the U.S. Department of Defense’s Research, Development, Test and Evaluation’s Science and Technology (RDT&E) Program. Basic research produces new knowledge in a scientific or technology area of importance to the military. About 60% of basic research awards go to universities via grants or contracts, and California’s research universities win a very large proportion of funds awarded competitively.

             Dr. Daniel J. Blumenthal, professor in the Department of Electrical and Computer Engineering, UC Santa Barbara, discussed the LASOR center at UCSB. The LASOR project is funded by the Defense Advance Research Projects Agency Data in the Optical Domain Network program. Christopher Contag, professor of Pediatrics at Stanford, discussed his work on the Medical Free Electron Laser (MFEL) program. He also presented the findings of the Stanford’s Center for Innovation in In Vivo Imaging (SCI3). Both rely upon federal research funds. W. Lewis Johnson, director of the Center for Advanced Research in Technology for Education (CARTE) at USC, presented the educational systems his work has produced. His video game system for learning language and culture applies Artificial Intelligence to education and training and is currently being used to train U.S. troops in Arabic and middle eastern culture. Axel Scherer, professor of electrical engineering at California Institute of Technology, discussed miniaturization and the success of his integrated miniaturization using optics, electronics and fluidics. Dr. Scherer also draws the majority of his funding from the DoD.

             The panel agreed that DoD funding is critical to their work and California’s unique role in research and development has secured much of that funding. California universities still must compete with other researchers across the country for funding, but the panelists were optimistic due to California’s past success and ability to convert research into marketplace applications.

             When funds are awarded competitively, California institutions compete strongly for research grants and contracts. However, perhaps in part thanks to California’s successes, members of Congress from other states have increasingly sought to earmark such funds specifically for projects in their districts -- a practice that significantly reduces the pool of funds available for competition.

PPIC Capitol Hill Briefing: Health Insurance and Health Status in Los Angeles County

             On November 30, 2006, the California Institute and the Public Policy Institute of California hosted a luncheon to discuss a recent PPIC report written by Marianne Bitler and Weiyi Shi, entitled “Health Insurance, Health Care Use, and Health Status in Los Angeles County.” The briefing featured Marianne Bitler, author of the report and Research Fellow at PPIC.

             Dr. Bitler discussed how both adults and children are faring in the health arena, paying attention to differences across racial and ethnic groups. The presentation focused particularly on Hispanics, a large and growing part of California’s population. The study analyzed outcomes according to nativity (U.S.-born) and immigration status (naturalized, documented, and undocumented) and the use of the health care system. Notable findings included:

             - Hispanics are much more likely to be uninsured, 38% of Hispanic adults 24% of Hispanic children were uninsured compared to 13-18% of white, black or Asian adults.

             - When immigration status is included in this analysis, the racial and ethnic differences in insurance coverage disappear for adults.

             - Documented immigrant adults were much more likely than U.S.- born residents to be uninsured. Undocumented adults were 34% more likely than U.S.-born residents to be uninsured.

             - Hospital and Emergency room usage did not vary by race/ethnicity or immigration status. And

             - Immigrant groups showed lower prevalence of some doctor-diagnosed conditions

Report Finds California HMO Premiums Now As High As Rest of States

             A report released in November 2006 by the California Healthcare Foundation found that for the first time HMO premiums for single coverage in California are as high as those in the rest of the country. Historically, CHCF states, HMO premiums in California were significantly less than the national average. The findings are discussed in the Foundation’s California Employer Health Benefits Survey 2006, an independent survey based on a national employer survey conducted annually by the Kaiser Family Foundation and the Health Research and Educational Trust (HRET).

             The report also found that:

             - Health insurance premiums rose 8.7% in 2006, compared to a 4.2% increase in the California inflation rate;

             - California workers paid $547 annually for single coverage and $2,824 for family coverage;

             - Sixteen percent of California employers offered a high-deductible health plan in 2006 and 6% offered a health savings account-eligible HDHP; and

             -Forty-one percent of large employers (more than 200 workers) reported that they are “very likely” and 28% “somewhat likely” to increase the amount employees will pay for health insurance in 2007.

             The full report is available at: http://www.chcf.org/topics/healthinsurance .


PPIC Statewide Survey Reports: California Voters Optimism Returning

             On December 6, 2006, The Public Policy Institute of California (PPIC) released the results of its most recent survey which polled 2,000 voters in the 12 days following the election. The survey is entitled “What a Difference a Year Makes: Optimistic Voters Take Leap of Faith, Have High Hopes for Bipartisanship in Sacramento.”

             Conducted by Mark Baldassare, research director at PPIC, it found that voters were more likely to say that November’s election made them feel better about California politics (30% to 14%), although for 54 percent it made no difference. This is far different from PPIC’s post-election survey in 2005 when 38 percent of voters said the special election made them feel worse and only 21 percent said that it made them feel better about state politics.

             The report states that bipartisanship and confidence in leadership led to the improved mood about the state’s elections. “Voters are happy, but not satisfied,” says PPIC survey director Mark Baldassare. “Their expectations are extremely high, especially when it comes to getting the job done in Sacramento. If state leaders cannot sustain a bipartisan atmosphere – or if the economy lags – voters could be quick to turn on them.”

             Other key findings from the report:

             - Immigration is a top issue for voters: 20% of voters view Immigration as the most important issue facing the state; 14% say the economy is, and13% say education is the top issue.

             - Voters did not view bond issues as a single package: only 28% say they voted yes on all of the bond measures and only 15% voted no on all bonds.

             - The Internet was a major source of election information: 35% of voters say they got election information from the Internet this fall; of more traditional sources of political information for bond issues 42% of voters used the sample ballot, 17% advertisements and 11% used news coverage.

             - Moderates were key to Schwarzenegger’s victory: 57% of self-described moderate voters supported Governor Schwarzenegger; only 39% of moderates supported Phil Angelides.

             - Public funding for campaigns is losing support: 57% in November 2002 supported public funding, 38% supports public funding today.

             - More voters support required debates – 67% of voters say they would support an initiative that required gubernatorial candidates to participate in five prime-time publicly broadcasted debates compared to 56% of likely voters in November 2002.

GAO Reports On Export Controls As Applied To The Nation’s Universities and Companies

             The Government Accountability Office recently issued two new reports regarding compliance with export control regulations by universities and companies.

             The U.S. export control system requires export licensing for defense items and items that have both commercial and military applications, except where exclusions apply. Noting that these regulations may be applicable to universities in some circumstances, the first report notes that the U.S. export control agencies place the onus on universities to understand and comply with the regulations. However, according to GAO, the Departments of State and Commerce expressed concerns that universities may not correctly interpret and apply export regulations, given the large number of foreign students participating in research at universities and the relative lack of license applications from universities. Nevertheless, GAO found that although federal internal control standards contain guidelines for agencies to conduct risk assessments, these agencies have not conducted an overall assessment of available trend data on technology development research and foreign participation in such research at U.S. universities to identify potential vulnerabilities. As a result, GAO recommends that Commerce and State use available information to assess potential vulnerabilities and based on that assessment improve outreach, guidance, and interagency coordination.

             The U.S. government controls exports of defense-related goods and services by companies and the export of information associated with their design, production, and use, to ensure they meet U.S. interests. In the second report, GAO assessed (1) how the government’s export control processes apply to the protection of export-controlled information, and (2) steps the government has taken to identify and help mitigate the risks in protecting export-controlled information. To do this, GAO analyzed agency regulations and practices and interviewed officials from 46 companies with a wide range of exporting experiences. To improve oversight of export-controlled information at companies, GAO recommends Commerce and State strategically assess vulnerabilities and improve guidance for protecting such exports.

             The reports are: Export Controls: Agencies Should Assess Vulnerabilities and Improve Guidance for Protecting Export-Controlled Information at Universities, GAO-07-70, December 5, available at: http://www.gao.gov/cgi-bin/getrpt?GAO-07-70 , and Export Controls: Agencies Should Assess Vulnerabilities and Improve Guidance for Protecting Export-Controlled Information at Companies, GAO-07-69, December 5, at http://www.gao.gov/cgi-bin/getrpt?GAO-07-69 .


Energy Department Awards Tax Credits to Build Carson Power Plant

             On November 30, 2006, federal officials from the Department of Energy and the Internal Revenue Service announced that $90 million in tax credits have been awarded to British Petroleum (BP) America to offset the costs of developing a clean power plant in Carson, California. The estimated final cost for the joint hydrogen-fueled gasification power plant is $1.5 billion.

             BP America will work in cooperation with Southern California Edison, one of the nation’s largest investor-owned utilities, to develop the project, which is located in Edison’s service territory. The new Carson Hydrogen Power LLC plant will be located adjacent to an existing BP/Arco refinery.

Forum Examines “Promoting Opportunity and Growth Through Science, Technology, and Innovation”

             On December 5, 2006, the Brookings Institution and A Hamilton Project presented a forum to advance an economic strategy to restore America’s promise of opportunity, prosperity and growth. The forum examined the importance of science and technology to meeting the challenges of the 21st century and introduced proposals to enhance U.S. expertise and competitiveness. The forum, entitled “Promoting Opportunity and Growth Through Science, Technology, and Innovation” featured two panel discussions hosted at Paul H. Nitze School of Advanced International Studies, John’s Hopkins University.

             The first panel discussion, “Practical Policies to Advance Science, Technology, and Innovation” featured three strategy papers with their authors exploring the importance of investments in innovation, research and in the education of a highly skilled American workforce to fueling American growth, prosperity and competitiveness. The second panel discussion, “Meeting the Nation’s Innovation Challenge” featured distinguished professors, researchers, and businessmen who explored how best to meet the challenges of an economy fueled by rapid scientific and technological advancements.

Brookings Institution Reports: Suburban Poor Outnumber Urban Poor

             This month, The Brookings Institution’s Metropolitan Policy Program released a report of its most recent installment of Living Cities Census Series. The Living Cities Census Series is an analysis of poverty in cities and suburbs of the nation’s 100 largest metropolitan areas, based on data from the 2005 American Community Survey and Census 2000. The report is entitled “Two Steps Back: City and Suburban Poverty Trends 1999–2005” written by Alan Berube, research director of the Metropolitan Policy Program, and Elizabeth Kneebone, research analyst of the Metropolitan Policy Program.

             The report found that the percentage of all people in poverty has increased, with the poverty rate in suburban areas outpacing that of cities. The report also noted regional differences namely in the Southern and Midwestern metropolitan areas which saw a vast increase in their poverty rates compared to the rest of the nation.

             Other key findings from the Brookings report:

             - In 1999 large cities and their suburbs had nearly equal numbers of poor individuals, but by 2005 the suburban poor outnumbered their city counterparts by at least 1 million.

             - In 2005, the poverty rate in large cities was 18.8%, and 9.4% in the suburbs.

             - In the West, only seven of 23 metro areas experienced poverty rate increases, and poverty actually fell in five.(In contrast, poverty rates rose in 18 of 20 Midwestern metropolitan areas.)

             - Six of the ten cities with the largest poverty rate increases were located in the Midwest, including Cleveland, Toledo, Detroit, and Columbus. New York City and the Greater Los Angeles area actually experienced small poverty-rate declines over this period.
