Navy Veteran Fights Baltimore Rules Restricting Where He Can Park His Food Truck

When Joey Vanoni returned to the United States from Afghanistan in 2013, he went to work putting his dream of owning a pizza business into action. A Navy veteran and current reservist, Vanoni launched Pizza di Joey, his veteran owned and operated business, in August 2014, serving New York-style brick oven pizza out of a food truck in Maryland’s Anne Arundel and Baltimore Counties. Vanoni knows good pizza. He was born and raised in New Jersey and began making pizza at a pizzeria when he was in high school. The reservist has lived in many cities across the country, all of which had their own pizza parlors claiming to sell New York-style pizza, and none of which quite made the cut.

These 7 Short Videos Clear Up Myths About Air Pollution

The Texas Public Policy Foundation came out with a series of short videos addressing myths about air pollution and the effects of the Environmental Protection Agency’s Clean Power Plan. The plan was first proposed by the EPA in 2014 and the final version was unveiled by President Barack Obama in August 2015. In February, the Supreme Court issued a stay on the plan until the D.C. Circuit Court of Appeals makes a decision on a 27-state lawsuit. “Our series of short videos about the EPA’s Clean Power Plan, air pollution, and climate change educate younger Americans about the tremendous progress we’ve made in cleaning our air of toxic emissions while pointing out that carbon dioxide—a gas we all exhale—is non-toxic plant fertilizer,” Chuck DeVore, vice president of national initiatives for the Texas Public … Read entire article »

Ralph Nader Advocacy Group Argues for Government to Regulate Others (but Not It)

On May 18, the Obama administration issued a new rule on overtime pay for employees, which at a stroke effectively turned millions of salaried employees into hourly employees eligible for overtime pay. It was roundly (and rightly) condemned by employers and business groups nationwide, ranging from the U.S. Chamber of Commerce to the National Council of Chain Restaurants. But one organization stood out from the rest: U.S. Public Interest Research Group. Founded by Ralph Nader, the U.S. Public Interest Research Group and its state-based member organizations have long been models of pro-regulation activism, campaigning for a bigger role for government in everything from financial markets to children’s toys. But on the expansion of overtime rules, they are firmly in the “no” camp. In a statement released immediately after the Labor Department announced its … Read entire article »

How NDAA Could Impact US Missile Defense

The U.S. House of Representatives recently took a first step to enact the National Defense Authorization Act (NDAA) for the fiscal year 2017 into law. The bill is one of the major congressional vehicles to advance policies related to U.S. national security issues. The NDAA advances several important nuclear weapons and missile defense policy positions. For example, the bill places limits on modernization of equipment of the Russian aircraft under the Open Skies Treaty unless certain conditions are met, including Russia permitting overflight over Moscow, Chechnya, Abkhazia, South Ossetia, and Kaliningrad without restriction and without inconsistency to requirements under the Open Skies Treaty. Additionally, the NDAA calls for developing military options in response to the Russian violations of the Intermediate-Range Nuclear Forces Treaty and with some exceptions limits cooperation with Russia unless … Read entire article »
