The Potomac team’s policy views have been grounded in data analysis and in comprehensive review of all aspects of an issue. I was honored to be asked to join the distinguished current members of the Board of Regents. I look forward to working with the capable Potomac team as the Institute seeks to aid policy makers by providing balanced perspectives on the challenging issues that our Nation faces today and in the future.” Click here to read more.
