President and CEO

One of the most impressive public policy achievements of the past generation has been a dramatic nationwide reduction in crime. However, some policymakers have begun to adopt an array of initiatives, that while well-intentioned, could put communities at greater risk and increase recidivism, from the reduction of mandatory minimum sentences and automatic restoration of felon voting rights to the curtailment of effective policing strategies.

Senator Tom Cotton (R-AR) spoke about the current trends in criminal justice policy at Hudson Institute at noon on Thursday, May 19, 2016. He discussed the trend toward criminal leniency, consequences of various “reform” policies, and policy alternatives to bolster public safety and present reasonable opportunities for former felons seeking to re-join society.

Reforming the Classification System: Challenges, Approaches, and Priorities

Our national security relies on the careful and deliberate creation, dissemination, and protection of classified information. But some contend that the current system for classifying and declassifying US government records is outdated and imposes significant economic and public policy costs, directly and indirectly harming national security.
