SUMMER GROWTH FOR NPRI

Nevada Policy Research Institute has been proud this summer to welcome a number of new members—men and women who believe it important to make a difference, and to change public policy in Nevada and America for the better. The support and ideas that NPRI’s members bring to the organization are genuinely appreciated. And so, to the Class of Summer, 1998, congratulations and welcome aboard!
