Commonwealth Policy Papers


Editor-in-Chief: Commonwealth Policy Coalition
Sponsor: Department Chair, University of Louisville Department of Political Science

The Commonwealth Policy Papers are a publication outlet for commentary & public policy solutions at the local and state level. These papers, including short briefs & commentary, draft bills, and white papers, are developed by the Commonwealth Policy Development Coalition Think-Tank (CPC) and Department of Political Science housed at the University of Louisville. CPC conducts public policy research & development with local legislatures as a public service, which is then showcased to the public through this open publication.

Submissions detailing policy solutions for local and state government are welcome from the community at-large. Submissions outside of the CPC and University of Louisville should include a short cover letter, not to exceed 1 page, explaining the submitters experience in the field and knowledge of the issue.
