Essential Reading

  • The Buckeye Institute
    The Buckeye Institute filed a Motion for Emergency Stay on Friday asking the U.S. Court of Appeals for the Sixth Circuit to immediately halt the federal vaccine mandate. Buckeye’s emergency motion argues that the mandate—one of the most far-reaching and invasive rules ever promulgated by the federal government—exceeds OSHA’s authority under the Occupational Health and Safety Act, violates the major questions doctrine, was promulgated in violation of the Congressional Review Act, and impermissibly trammels on numerous constitutional principles including the non-delegation doctrine and limitations on federal power under the Commerce Clause.
  • Iowa for Tax Relief Foundation and Texas Public Policy Foundation
    The Iowa for Tax Relief Foundation and Texas Public Policy Foundation released a report that encourages policymakers to keep government spending from excessively burdening taxpayers. The Conservative Iowa Budget helps limit government spending so that there are more opportunities for tax relief and for widespread prosperity for Iowans now and for generations to come.
  • The Buckeye Institute
    The Buckeye Institute filed an amicus brief with the Ohio Supreme Court urging to the court to accept Ohio’s appeal in Bowling v. DeWine and affirm that Governor Mike DeWine has the authority to withdraw Ohio from the Federal Pandemic Unemployment Compensation Program, something The Buckeye Institute recommended as part of its Policy Solutions for the Pandemic series.
  • The Buckeye Institute
    As the Ohio House continues its review of Ohio occupational licenses, The Buckeye Institute released a new policy brief that identified 63 licenses that the state should eliminate or reform to make Ohio more economically competitive and make it easier for people to earn a living. This review is required under the Buckeye-championed policies in Senate Bill 255, which, among other things, requires all licensing boards be renewed at least once every six years or they will automatically expire.
