By: The James Madison Institute / 2017



Addressing water need, expanding learning options, and encouraging innovation are among the top priorities for the James Madison Institute in 2017.

The Tallahassee think tank released its 2017 policy priorities this week, focusing on economic prosperity, property rights and educational opportunities. The annual list of priorities addresses several issues important to the organization and the state as a whole.

“These principles are the reason more than two billion people around the world have found their way out of poverty over the past 30 years,” saidBob McClure, the organization’s president, in a statement. “And they must continue to find their way into decisions made by policy makers at the local, state and federal levels. We look forward to all that will be done during 2017 to make Florida’s future brighter for years to come.”

The 2017 priorities include encouraging innovation and entrepreneurialism in the marketplace, opposing regulations that seek to restrict competition, addressing Florida’s water future, and expanding learning options for all K-12 students.
