National Center for Public Policy Research Turns 25

I wouldn’t want to let the day go by without — rather self-indulgently — wishing a happy birthday to us.

Although the National Center for Public Policy Research was legally incorporated on September 14, 1981, our first day of business was February 2, 1982. If memory serves, it was a Tuesday.

At the time, we rented a four-room office 4.2 blocks from the east front of the U.S. Capitol building on the the first floor of 413 East Capitol St., S.E. Now we own our own building at 501 Capitol Court, N.E., a few blocks north of the Senate Hart Building.

One or two other things have changed as well.

The National Center for Public Policy Research is a communications and research foundation supportive of a strong national defense and dedicated to providing free market solutions to today’s public policy problems. We believe that the principles of a free market, individual liberty and personal responsibility provide the greatest hope for meeting the challenges facing America in the 21st century.
