Washington, D.C. —The Heritage Foundation today released “Blueprint for a New Administration: Priorities for the President,” the third and final installment of its latest Mandate for Leadership series.
The new volume, “Blueprint for a New Administration: Priorities for the President,” identifies specific actions the next president can take to reform executive branch programs and policies as soon as he or she enters the Oval Office. The 70-page report also identifies the steps Cabinet members and other major agency heads can take to implement the reform directives.
The Mandate project dates to 1980, when Heritage published its first detailed guide to reforming the federal government on a department-by-department basis. Many of its conservative policy solutions were adopted by the Reagan administration, with the president referring to it as his governing “bible.”
The latest volume comes on the heels of two other Mandate reports released earlier this year:
- “Blueprint for Balance: A Federal Budget for 2017,” published in March, shows how Congress can drive down spending and achieve a balanced budget, while maintaining a strong national defense and avoiding new taxes.
- “Blueprint for Reform: A Comprehensive Policy Agenda for a New Administration in 2017,” published in July, outlines numerous long-term policy steps for Congress and the next president, from taming the regulatory state to reforming the welfare system.
One of the nation’s leading think tanks, The Heritage Foundation is committed to developing public policy solutions that advance free enterprise, limited government, individual freedom, traditional values and a strong national defense.
