Policy Resources for Candidates and Future Leaders
Thank you for your service to the great State of Louisiana by standing for election to public office. If we can be of assistance to you in developing your policy vision or engaging in priority issues for you, please don’t hesitate to reach out. In the meantime, we’d welcome the opportunity to meet and learn more about you and your priorities!It’s time to write Louisiana’s comeback storyFor too long, poor public policy decisions have caused Louisiana families to suffer while our neighbors thrive. While other families think about leaving a legacy, our legacy – our kids, grandkids, friends, and family members – is leaving to find work and opportunity in other states.
It doesn’t have to be this way. In fact, it shouldn’t. That’s why the Pelican Institute team has worked to create the Louisiana Comeback Agenda, based on months of research, hundreds of pages of data and information, and work from some of the best minds from around Louisiana and the nation. Read more about our proposed solutions in the Louisiana Comeback Agenda!
Of course, we work on a broad set of issues related to opportunity and free enterprise. We publish regular articles and policy briefings as well as full-length research and reports on our website: PelicanPolicy.org. Here you’ll find information on a variety of issues including:
- Tax & Budget
