Jamie Tairov

Director of Fiscal and Opportunity Policy

Jamie Tairov serves as Pelican’s Director of Fiscal and Opportunity Policy. Prior to joining Pelican, she worked at Louisiana State University and A&M College (LSU) and then transitioned to the Fiscal Division of the House of Representatives where she supported lawmakers and the public as a budget analyst. She was responsible for analyzing the state’s budget for Public Safety and Corrections, Higher Education, Department of Justice, and the Judicial branch of government, just to name a few. Jamie also staffed legislative committees, led annual budget hearings, helped legislators draft amendments to budget and subject matter bills, and evaluate executive agency and judicial branch programs.

In her role at Pelican, Jamie also supports important reforms in the areas of taxation, workforce development and social safety net programs, criminal justice, and occupational licensure. She recommends reforms to these policy areas by not only evaluating Louisiana’s laws, regulations, and programs, but also researching other state policies, identifying national best practices, and collaborating with partners to advance effective free market solutions. Jamie led Pelican’s effort to publish a comprehensive Citizens Guide to the Louisiana Budget that was released in the spring of 2023.

Jamie is a native of South Louisiana, born and raised in Baton Rouge. While raising her two children, she received her Bachelor of Science in Agricultural Economics and Agribusiness and went on to complete a master’s degree in public administration, both from LSU. She lives in Baton Rouge with her husband and many fur babies and spends all of her spare time doting on her grandson.
