Illegal aliens : assessing estimates of financial burden on California : report to the Honorable Barbara Boxer, U.S. Senate by United States( Book )

2 editions published in 1994 in English and held by 63 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Concerns about the financial burden of providing public benefits and services have prompted several states, including California, to sue the federal government for repayment of these costs. To help Congress evaluate California's request for federal reimbursement, GAO examined estimates of the fiscal impact of illegal aliens living in California. GAO examined estimates presented in the Governor of California's 1994-95 budget published in January 1994, the state's revised estimates published in September 1994, and estimates by Urban Institute researchers published in September 1994. This report (1) reviews the studies' cost estimates for elementary and secondary education, Medicaid benefits, and adult imprisonment; (2) reviews the studies' estimates of revenues attributable to illegal aliens; and (3) summarizes current federal efforts to improve estimates of the public fiscal impact of illegal aliens. GAO concludes that the credibility of such estimates is likely to be a persistent issue, given the limited data available on the population of illegal aliens and differences in key assumptions and methodologies used to develop the estimates. For example, the studies differed in their treatment of capital costs, the age groups they used to estimate education costs, and their methodologies for projecting revenues

1 edition published in 2008 in English and held by 7 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Since becoming the chairperson of the U.S. Senate Committee on Environment and Public Works, Barbara Boxer (D - CA) has battled to put global warming at the top of the Congressional priority list.

Then, the Journal and Exposé: America's Investigative Reports go inside America's poultry industry to show the reality of working conditions and to investigate how official statistics showing a drop in workplace injuries may have been the result of deceptive reporting.

The art of tough : fearlessly facing politics and life by Barbara Boxer( Book )

3 editions published between 2016 and 2017 in English and held by 5 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

After serving in Congress for more than thirty years as both a congresswoman and a senator, Senator Boxer has proven herself to be a passionate advocate for significant issues of our time, including the military, civil rights, universal health care, and the environment. With a who's who of politics of the past three decades, Boxer shows all of the machinations that it takes to make government work, much of it off the record. Featuring figures beloved and reviled, Boxer's memoir takes us behind the scenes to show us what it has been like to deal with George W. Bush, John McCain, and Mitch McConnell, as well as Tip O'Neill, the Clintons, Obama, and so many more. Raised in a Jewish, working-class neighborhood in Brooklyn, NY, Boxer was a journalist who decided she could make a difference and ran for local office in California, inspired to fight tooth and nail to help bring that American dream of "a more perfect union" into fruition. Behind closed doors in secret negotiating rooms, Boxer has seen it all: petty squabbling, bare-knuckled dysfunctional debate, and vicious character assassinations. Drawing back the curtain, she leads readers in a master class in statecraft, revealing the truth behind controversial policies, temperamental elected officials, and sensational media headlines that have dominated our national discourse. In this passionate, heartfelt testament to one woman's life's work to improve democracy for all, Senator Boxer offers her views on how American government is flawed and can be rescued to ultimately flourish, but only with the full participation of the nation at large

"A chilling investigation on the effects of the oil industry, this film takes a historical look at the beginnings of the Big Oil, as well as the ramifications of the industry's impact on the current global society. Narrated by Peter Gallagher, the film features stories and input from a wide variety of people, including members of the US Congress, alternative energy enthusiasts, Hollywood actors, Big Oil executives as they testify before Congress, and everyday people. What are the causes that led from America turning from a leading exporter of oil to the world's largest importer? What are the economic and sociological forces that have contributed to that change and impede its solution? The film examines many different potential solutions to our oil dependence. Starting with claims of buried technology that dramatically improves gas mileage, to navigating bureaucratic governmental roadblocks, to evaluating different alternative fuels that are technologically available now, to questioning the consumer's reluctance to embrace alternatives"--Container
