2000 Amendments To Colorado Utes Settlement Act Of 1988, United States 106th Congress Dec 2000

2000 Amendments To Colorado Utes Settlement Act Of 1988, United States 106th Congress

Native American Water Rights Settlement Project

Federal Legislation: Colorado Ute Indian Water Rights Settlement Act Amendments of 2000 in Consolidated Appropriations Act of Dec. 21, 2001 (PL 106-554, Appendix D, Title III, 114 Stat. 2763A-258 ). The timetable set forth in the Settlement Agreement has not been met. The irrigation water provisions cannot be met due to Endangered Species Act, biological opinions and Federal Water Pollution Control Act requirements which reduce the amount that can be drawn from the Animas and La Plata Rivers.

Smart Growth: Finding Mediation Tools For Regional Land Use Disputes, John R. Nolon Dec 2000

Smart Growth: Finding Mediation Tools For Regional Land Use Disputes, John R. Nolon

Pace Law Faculty Publications

Land use oriented border wars occur all over the United States, especially in areas with concentrated populations such as Westchester County. Many of these disputes arise out of local land use control, which usually fails to address regional issues, instead opting to act only in their individual municipal interests. This article describes several possible solutions involving federal, state, regional, and intermunicipal remedies as well as non-governmental solutions such as land use mediation services, to help create regional answers to regional issues.


Tax, Trade And Harmful Tax Competition: Reflections On The Fsc Controversy, Reuven S. Avi-Yonah Dec 2000

Tax, Trade And Harmful Tax Competition: Reflections On The Fsc Controversy, Reuven S. Avi-Yonah

Articles

This article contrasts three approaches to dealing with the BEPS problem: adopting a unitary taxation regime, ending deferral, and adopting anti-base-erosion measures. It concludes that while the first approach is the best long-term option, the other two are more promising as immediate candidates for adoption in the context of U.S. tax reform and the OECD BEPS project.

The Federal-State Medicaid Match: An Ongoing Tug-Of-War Over Practice And Policy, Karen Matherlee Dec 2000

The Federal-State Medicaid Match: An Ongoing Tug-Of-War Over Practice And Policy, Karen Matherlee

National Health Policy Forum

Reviewing Medicaid match issues since the latter 1980s, this issue brief traces ways in which some states have used creative financing to get more Medicaid matching dollars than they otherwise would qualify for from the federal government. It explores the latest mechanism, states' use of so-called intergovernmental transfers of funds (to avoid established upper payment limits) to increase their matches, triggering efforts by the Senate Finance Committee and the federal Medicaid agency to ban such transfers.

Deducting Environmental Cleanup Costs, Neil Harl Dec 2000

Deducting Environmental Cleanup Costs, Neil Harl

Agricultural Law Digest

For nearly a decade, there’s been a great deal of uncertainty over how to handle environmental cleanup costs. Two developments this year have cast new light on the problem, one confirming the direction we have been taking on the issue and the other raising some question about the reliance on a 1992 U.S. Supreme Court case in requiring the capitalization of some environmental cleanup costs.

All Faculty Scholarship

"I am in the U.S. until February. A few weeks ago, I went to our embassy in Washington and offered to speak on Israel's behalf, to present the true story of what's going on, to counter the very effective job being done by the Palestinians of making it appear as if they are Davids fighting Goliath, and we are not getting the truth out. But the people at the embassy just shrugged."

He knows that in 1948 some 630,000 Arab refugees were encouraged to leave Israel by their leaders, who promised to purge the land of ...

The Fcc’S Financial Qualification Requirements: Economic Evaluation Of A Barrier To Entry For Minority Broadcasters, Yale M. Braunstein Dec 2000

The Fcc’S Financial Qualification Requirements: Economic Evaluation Of A Barrier To Entry For Minority Broadcasters, Yale M. Braunstein

Federal Communications Law Journal

When analyzing issues surrounding minority ownership of media, scholars have often noted that policy discussions in the area suffer from the linked problems of inadequate data and a lack of tools with which to analyze the data that do exist and might be collected. In Issue Three of Volume 51, several authors made this particular observation. To address this problem, This Article shows how one may use economic analysis and a financial model of a "typical" radio broadcaster to quantify the effects of specific policies. Specifically, the Article focuses on barriers to entry imposed by the FCC’s financial qualification ...


The Rights Of Common Carriers And The Decision Whether To Be A Common Carrier Or A Non-Regulated Communications Provider, James H. Lister Dec 2000

The Rights Of Common Carriers And The Decision Whether To Be A Common Carrier Or A Non-Regulated Communications Provider, James H. Lister

Federal Communications Law Journal

The decision whether to be a regulated common carrier or a non-regulated communications provider carries with it numerous benefits and burdens that must be weighed. Although one may automatically assume that non-regulation is preferable, that may not always be the case. This Article directly addresses the decision of whether to be a lightly-regulated non-dominant common carrier or a non-regulated private carrier. The Article argues that certain statutory and regulatory rights enjoyed by common carriers are more important than the minimal regulatory burdens associated with non-dominant common carrier regulation.

The Art Of Writing Good Regulations, Harold W. Furchtgott-Roth Dec 2000

The Art Of Writing Good Regulations, Harold W. Furchtgott-Roth

Federal Communications Law Journal

In this introduction to the three pieces that follow, Commissioner Harold Furchtgott-Roth proposes his view that the regulation-drafting process relies more on art than science. The Commissioner sets out a four-category sliding scale to evaluate regulations, and lists the most frequently noted problems with FCC-promulgated rules.


Communications Media And The First Amendment: A Viewpoint-Neutral Fcc Is Not Too Much To Ask For, Helgi Walker Dec 2000

Communications Media And The First Amendment: A Viewpoint-Neutral Fcc Is Not Too Much To Ask For, Helgi Walker

Federal Communications Law Journal

In the "new economy" driven by the telecommunications industry, the FCC is a busy agency. Given the myriad legal issues faced daily by agency decisionmakers and the lack of perfect clarity in major communications legislation, a few legal missteps here and there by the FCC might be expected. In one area, however, the public can and should demand a first-rate agency record: regulation of communications media without regard to the viewpoint expressed via that media, as the First Amendment requires. This Article offers two case studies in which the FCC arguably took viewpoint-discriminatory actions with regard to regulated broadcasters, and ...
