STATEMENT RELEASE: JMI Releases 2021 Policy Priorities

Today, The James Madison Institute released its 2021 Policy Priorities detailing a robust and visionary set of policy initiatives for the next year that advance the cause of liberty and prosperity.

As we begin to look toward both beating back the pandemic and the long journey of economic rebuilding, it’s imperative that Florida reprise her role as the model for how a commitment to fiscal integrity, low taxes, minimal regulation, and visionary leadership can serve to provide opportunity for all.

JMI remains steadfast in the belief that an ongoing commitment to limiting the footprint of government control in our lives, pursuing free markets through competition, protecting private property, and expanding the ability of parents to choose the best educational settings for their children will continue to make the Sunshine State a beacon of liberty and prosperity for the rest of the world.

The 2021 Policy Priorities for The James Madison Institute:

  • Expand patient-centered, market-based healthcare policies
  • Increase educational opportunity, choice, and intellectual diversity
  • Advance Florida’s innovation economy through market-oriented policy
  • Support sensible criminal justice reforms
  • Advance market-centered insurance policies
  • Expand public workforce opportunity
  • Promote the values of free markets, choice, and liberty in federal policy dialogues

“While Florida’s economy has certainly taken a tremendous hit from Covid-19 and the pandemic response, the policy decisions made over the last 20 years have positioned the Sunshine State as a national model for dealing with the realities of 2020. Florida’s policy leaders have shown that a commitment to limited government, low taxes, and narrow market-centered regulation is proving that, just as we bounced back from the 2009 financial meltdown faster than any other state, we will do so again.

The policy team at JMI is committed to providing our elected leaders in Tallahassee and D.C., along with the 22 million residents from Pensacola to Key West, with all of the tools necessary to ensure that we get our great state back on track in 2021.” –Sal Nuzzo, Vice President of Policy, The James Madison Institute

While the process of engagement may look different in 2021, our commitment to engaging with policymakers and the public will remain steadfast. There is much to be done on this journey.
