Dear friend of liberty,

1.  New Member

Representative Pat Toomey recently joined Congressman Ron Paul and the
other 15 members of The Liberty Group.  Mr. Toomey represents
Pennsylvania's 15th district and is in his first term. Welcome
Mr. Toomey!

2.  Paul Amendment - Medical I.D.

As reported a few days ago, numerous U.S. representatives and senators
have inquired about the Paul amendment to the Labor-H.H.S.-Education
appropriations bill (H.R. 4577) because of your efforts during the last
two weeks.  The Paul amendment will continue the moratorium on funding
the "unique health identifier"  required by the 1996 Health Insurance
Portability and Accountability Act (H.I.P.P.A).  Due to your work, we
now expect the Paul amendment to remain in the Labor-H.H.S.-Education
bill which will be voted on sometime over the next several days.  (We
will keep watching though until it is official.)

3.  Executive Orders Watch

During the remaining few months of his term after Congress leaves town,
how many and what kind of executive orders will President Clinton
issue?  As soon as the 106th Congress adjourns, we will start Executive
Orders Watch.  Executive Orders Watch will be a part of our ongoing
work to restore the separation of powers - a separation of powers that
is essential for our republic and our liberty to survive.
