You know the excitement you feel when you buy something new? A new suit, new shoes, new sporting equipment? That’s the feeling I’ve had this week when I visit NPRI’s homepage,

That’s because on Monday, we unveiled a completely redesigned site that is much sharper and easier to navigate while offering a host of new features we’ve wanted over the past few years.

Want to share NPRI’s research and analysis on Twitter, Facebook or Pinterest? Now it’s as easy as clicking a button.

Want to comment on an NPRI article? You can do that now.

Want to see all of our research on education or public debt? Now our research is grouped by categories like taxes and transparency. This makes it much easier to find everything we’ve written on the subject you care about.

The ability to search the site is also much, much improved. I know our staff is thrilled about that in particular.

One of my favorite features is right under the main section. It features quotes from individuals like former president George W. Bush, former U.S. attorney general Ed Meese and Congressman Joe Heck praising the work of NPRI. That section changes every time the page loads, so refresh the page if you want to see all the quotes.

Those quotes speak highly of NPRI, but I hope you take pride in them as well, because every success we have is a result of your generous support and your willingness to share our research with friends, colleagues and lawmakers.

Head over to and click around. Please let me know what you think about the site and if there are any changes you’d like to see.

Take care,

Andy Matthews
NPRI President
