Policybot Featured Work of the Week

This week's Policybot featured work comes from the Cato Institute. The recently released report, titled "Candy-Coated Cartel," gives insight into the government-manipulated sugar industry. The author explains how the government got so involved in the sugar markets and how consumers suffer from the program's mal-effects.

More Think Tank Works

Next, Donny and John welcome on Jon Riches, Director of National Litigation and General Counsel at the Goldwater Institute. Jon joins the show to talk about Goldwater's recent work on the Right to Earn a Living Act - a potential solution to the problem of excessive occupational licensing requirements.

After that, Donny and John are joined by Charlie Katebi, State Government Relations Manager at The Heartland Institute. Charlie discusses the implications of President Trump's recently signed executive order on welfare reform. 

Last, John asks Donny and Charlie about their thoughts on a recently proposed bill that would require retailers in Chicago post signs highlighting the negative health impacts of cigarette alternatives.
