As previously mentioned, following up on their testimony before the New Hampshire Department of Safety on March 8, 2012, Rockefeller Center Policy Research Shop students Amy Couture ‘14, Michael Danaher ’13, and Tina Meng ’14 traveled back to Concord on May 10, 2012 to brief Governor John Lynch on the findings they had presented to the Department of Safety in their PRS Policy Brief, “Performance Measurement for State Governmental Agencies: Comparative Case Studies.”

This was an exciting achievement in PRS history and was picked up by various local media outlets including The Union Leader, DartmouthNow, and The Dartmouth.

From DartmouthNow:

Students from the Nelson A. Rockefeller Center Policy Research Shop have become accustomed to interactions with lawmakers and legislatures. However, a recent trip to Concord, N.H., did prompt a “first” for the Policy Research Shop, as students met with the state’s governor for the first time.As The Union Leader reports, the Policy Research Shop has produced 83 research briefs since 2005, but this is the first time that one of its studies has landed directly on the governor’s desk. Speaking to the relevance of the student’s research, Ronald G. Shaiko, the Rockefeller Center’s Associate Director of Curricular Programs and Senior Fellow, told The Union Leader, “We’ve had bills that have been amended because of our work. We’ve had bills that have been killed because of our work.”
Congratulations again to PRS!

The Policy Research Shop is supported in part by a grant from the U.S. Department of Education's Fund for the Improvement of Postsecondary Education (FIPSE) program. To learn more about PRS, click here.
