They may not address your specific part of the bill but you can find out how they think the problem addressed by your bill should be resolved.

The issues identified by the think tanks can help you understand who the opposing stakeholders might be.

For example, if an issue identified in the think tank is private insurance versus universal coverage paid for by the government, you would be safe thinking that private insurance companies are stakeholders and would most likely oppose any bills that promote government-sponsored coverage.

Brookings Institute
  • The Brookings Institution traces its beginnings to 1916, when a group of leading reformers founded the Institute for Government Research (IGR), the first private organization devoted to analyzing public policy issues at the national level.
  • In 1922 and 1924, one of IGR's backers, Robert Somers Brookings (1850-1932), established two supporting sister organizations: the Institute of Economics and a graduate school bearing his name
  • In 1927, the three groups merged to form the Brookings Institution, honoring the businessman from St. Louis whose leadership shaped the earlier organizations.

The President created a blue-ribbon commission of civic leaders who recommended chartering a center to do that work. In 1968, the Urban Institute became that center.
