Center of the American Experiment

Center of the American Experiment, Minnesota’s premier free-market think tank engaged Mason Public Affairs to help improve the pipeline of its ideas into the Minnesota legislature. To accomplish this, we published the Minnesota Policy Blueprint, a compilation of analysis and policy recommendations that cover 10 diverse issue areas.

To build a network of allies and advocates, the Center reached out to individuals and organizations that would have common interests at the legislature. Each chapter was released separately over the summer of 2014 through venues and audiences consisting of partner organizations.  The book release reception, held at the Minnesota History Center, attracted more than 200 thought leaders, including about 25 legislators.

The Center released a poll that tested the public popularity of its proposals.
