The Pelican Post is the blog of the Pelican Institute for Public Policy. Our focus is on policy and politics in Louisiana, with an occasional detour into food, music and whatever else strikes our fancy.

The Pelican Institute is a non-profit research and education institution that conducts scholarly research and analysis of Louisiana public policy. The Institute’s mission is to advance sound policies based on the principles of free enterprise, individual liberty, and limited government.

We hope that you enjoy the blog and encourage you to share your comments.
