The directors of a new policy center that will research topics related to the free market, individual liberty and limited government held an official launch party on the steps of the Idaho Capitol alongside three Idaho legislators.
The Mountain States Policy Center calls itself a free market think tank and plans to issue research and analysis, policy papers and informational videos about issues related to tax policy, education, agriculture, health care and other economic issues.
Chris Cargill is the center’s president and CEO, says the nonprofit has already raised more than $600,000 from donors, and said tens of thousands of people have already engaged with the policy center’s content on social media.
The Idaho Capital Sun reports, the policy center will primarily focus on Idaho but will take a regional perspective with occasional research on issues in Washington, Montana and Wyoming.
The center will also hold a North Idaho launch party today (Thursday) in Coeur d’Alene.
