SGLF.org to serve as hub for state based policy education
Alexandria, Va. (December 1, 2011) – The State Government Leadership Foundation launched a new website today as part of a substantial ramping up of the organization’s efforts to educate policymakers and the public about the benefits of smaller government, lower taxes, balanced budgets and efficiency in governing. The new website includes a dynamic, state-by-state legislative tracking tool, in-depth policy discussions regarding the top ten issues state lawmakers are facing, news articles, email updates and other resources.
In addition to today’s launch of the website, the SGLF – an affiliate of the Republican State Leadership Committee (RSLC) – will devote significant resources in the form of research and training, public communications, conferences and other means of dialogue among conservative state leaders.
“State governments face a broad range of policy issues and the influence that state leaders have on them is immense. Through this new website and with regular engagement of experts, policymakers and the public, the SGLF will take the lead in spotlighting smaller, smarter and more efficient government solutions,” said Chris Jankowski, SGLF Executive Director.
The first major SGLF event will take place next Wednesday when the group partners with The Heritage Foundation to host a forum that includes Senate Republican Leader Mitch McConnell (R-KY), six Secretaries of State, and former Federal Election Commission member Hans. A. von Spakovsky. The event will examine the Electoral College and the effort being made to effectively abolish it with the National Popular Vote Plan.
The SGLF firmly believes that good policy will ultimately be realized at the state level. While Washington continues to struggle with gridlock, out of control spending and lack of direction, leaders within the states are taking action and productively getting things done.

About the SGLF
The State Government Leadership Foundation (SGLF) spotlights hotbed issues and conservative policies that state government officials wrestle with most. For too long, out-of-touch leaders in the states have colluded with special interests to raise taxes, swell state budgets, and increase the size of government. The SGLF is taking the lead on educating elected and appointed state government officials, providing support to local officeholders, and highlighting meaningful, conservative solutions. The SGLF is a 501 (c)(4) social welfare organization affiliated with the Republican State Leadership Committee, one of the largest conservative caucuses in the country.
