The Heartland Institute’s latest Emerging Issues Forum was held August 9, 2012 in Chicago — a day-long event where 140 elected officials, policy analysts, and government affairs professionals heard from leading free-market experts as we explored solutions to the top public policy issues facing states.
The annual event is planned and run by Heartland’s hard-working government relations department, which is on-call 24/7 to provide public policy research to members of Heartland’s Legislative Forum. The latest examples of the Research & Commentary documents Heartland’s government relations department regularly provides to Legislative Forum members is at the side bar to the right.

Admission to our EIF is always free for elected officials and their spouses. The Heartland Institute also offers a limited number of travel scholarships and complimentary accommodations for up to two nights’ lodging to members of our Legislative Forum. For more information, contact John Nothdurft, director of government relations, at 312/377-4000 or email email@example.com.
The goal of the EIF every year is to give lawmakers insight into new issues they may face … and the innovative free-market policy ideas that are being developed to solve them. These events look at the problems state lawmakers face as a result of new federal laws and the continuing economic struggles — and also shed light on trends in policy from across the country.
