The Roe Better Government Network

The Roe Better Government Network collects and distributes public policy solutions for the benefit of the New England states. The Roe Papers are selected from among the most intriguing and original submissions to Pioneer Institute’s annual Better Government Competition. Roe Papers present innovative ideas from private-sector experts, government officials, and private individuals. Pioneer works with each submission’s author to develop their ideas into detailed, actionable policy proposals.

We are appreciative of the Roe Foundation’s generous support for this initiative. Their sustained funding has enabled Pioneer to vet these ideas with policymakers and experts as well as legislators and executive officials. As Roe Papers are released, they will be made available below.
