August 09, 2012, 7:30 AM - 3:30 PM

The Emerging Issues Forum is a day-long policy forum during which elected officials, policy analysts, and government affairs professionals can hear from the leading free-market experts as we explore solutions to the top public policy issues facing states.

Afterward, join us at The Heartland Institute’s 28th Anniversary Benefit Dinner, 5:30 pm – 9:00 pm at Navy Pier.

Admission to both events is 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. Details on costs for others to attend is available at the EIF Web site, or by contacting John Nothdurft, director of government relations, at 312/377-4000 or email jnothdurft@heartland.org.

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. This event looked at the problems state lawmakers are likely to face as a result of new federal laws and the continuing economic struggles. It also shed light on trends in policy from across the country.
