We are excited to unveil the Maryland Policy Forum (MPF), a new and entirely unique idea in our state. We created the MPF to promote sensible, intelligent debate on public policy issues in Maryland. No name calling. No toxic shouting matches that dominate today’s political discourse. Instead, the Maryland Policy Forum will host public events across Maryland that elevate ideas over insults, policy over partisanship, and reason over empty rhetoric to lead to a more competitive and thriving state. The Maryland Policy Forum is a project of the Maryland Public Policy Institute.
