Ahead of session, Center for Public Policy Priorities looks to broaden reach across policy areas

Former Chairman Keffer: “During the last election, 100 percent of the people who voted decided 50 percent of the people had lost their minds. CPPP is trying to bridge that gap with the facts, with the numbers and figures, that can help policymakers.”

The Center for Public Policy Priorities on Wednesday rolled out a broad overview of its upcoming policy agenda, saying Texas has failed to invest in its most important resource: its growing and diverse population. 

For more than a decade, CPPP has been known at the Texas Capitol for the expertise of its policy experts: Dick Lavine on property taxes; Eva DeLuna Castro on budget issues; Anne Dunkelberg on Medicaid; and Chandra Villanueva on school finance.

The recent hiring of Luis Figueroa as a legislative and policy director, however, sends the message CPPP is looking to broaden its reach.
