The HFPC Think Tank is a collaborative research project that:

  • Convenes different types of experts–economists, attorneys, farmers, researchers, policy analysts, doctors, scientists, industry leaders, administrators–for a focused and objective conversation around a particular issue.
  • Synthesizes existing research and finds facts that all parties can agree on.
  • Makes recommendations for new research, or even conducts new research when appropriate.
  • Communicates findings to the legislature and the public.
