Government Relations Department

Welcome, elected officials!
Gov. Relations Quote
The Heartland Institute strives to be the first place a busy legislator or staff turns to for reliable research and commentary on the major issues of the day. We work closely with national, state, and local elected officials, sending them a publication approximately once a week and rapidly responding to their requests for information. During 2011, we made approximately 1.4 million contacts with government officials!

This page is your portal to our staff, network of scholars, and research. Use the map below to view the latest research and commentary on your state, or use PolicyBot to search our database of more than 25,000 reports and commentaries from 350 think tanks and advocacy groups. Or use one of the “Legislator Tools” listed in the right-hand column.

If you have any questions, contact us at 312/377-4000.
