Engler is in his third and final term as governor and recently became head of the National Governorís Association. Englerís top environmental appointee organized a meeting in April 2000 between executives of polluting industries (including Pioneer Thomas Kuhn) and officials of states such as Texas, which face sanctions for flunking federal air standards. The goal of the meeting was to see how federal air standards might be relaxed if Bush becomes president. Englerís signature policies include: banning local governments from suing gun makers, opposing abortion, shifting the tax load from progressive property taxes to regressive sales taxes and slashing funding for the arts, welfare and job development programs. He supports drug testing of welfare recipients and has opposed school vouchers while championing charter schools (see Pioneer J.C. Huizenga).
