The ACCF Center for Policy Research created its Distinguished Fellows Program in 1994 to bring the tax, regulatory, and environmental policy research undertaken for the Center by some of the nation’s leading scholars to the attention of policymakers and opinion influencers in Congress, the administration, and the press. ACCF continues to provide a home for solid academic research on capital formation issues as guidance for policymakers.
