PennFuture's professional public policy staff members are a constant presence on Capitol Hill, in hearing rooms and legislative offices across the state. Working with our volunteers, we have been able to move exciting new legislation from the idea stage, all the way though to becoming settled law.
But the price of democracy is constant vigilance, to paraphrase the well-known saying. And PennFuture is ever vigilant, acting as a watchdog over a legislature that often needs watching. When required, we stay at the Capitol nights, weekends and holidays to make sure the environment and economy are protected.
