The World’s Leading Think Tank for Policy Impact

Heritage impact

As lawmakers pondered reauthorizing the Obama administration’s signature surface transportation bill, the Senate Committee on Banking, Housing, and Urban Affairs asked Heritage Foundation research associate David Ditch to share his views on the topic.  

A spate of new school choice bills enacted across the nation reflect recommendations made by Heritage Foundation education experts. 

In West Virginia, Gov. Jim Justice recently signed the Hope Scholarship bill that creates a universal education savings account (or ESA) program that allows parents to use their share of state education funds for approved non-public educational expenses such as private-school tuition and home-schooling materials. 

Forbes contributor Alejandro Chafuen has been ranking free-market think tanks on their social media presence for nearly a decade. The Heritage Foundation has earned the top spot on the list for many years and did so again in 2021.

“The Heritage Foundation continues its impressive social media efforts, capturing first place among US free-market groups on all platforms except YouTube, where it came second,” writes Chafuen in his 2021 report. 

 

Heritage Foundation legal fellows Zack Smith and Amy Swearer recently testified before Congress on the issues of District of Columbia statehood and gun rights. 

In his testimony to the U.S. House Committee on Oversight and Reform on March 22, Smith argued that HR 51, also known as the "Washington, D.C. Admission Act" would be unconstitutional and that any attempt to make D.C. a state short of a constitutional amendment would be legally problematic.
