Hon. Mark Pryor (D-AR)
Former U.S. Senator

The American Council for Capital Formation proudly announces that Mark Pryor, former Democratic Senator of Arkansas has joined its prestigious bipartisan Board of Advisors.

Mark Pryor earned a reputation on Capitol Hill as a “voice of reason” during his 12 years representing Arkansas in the Senate and worked across the aisle to pass more than 70 pieces of legislation on a range of critical issues, from consumer protection and economic development to homeland security and defense.  He served on several high-profile committees during his tenure, including Appropriations; Armed Services; Commerce, Science and Transportation; Homeland Security and Governmental Affairs; Rules and Administration; Small Business and Entrepreneurship; and the Select Committee on Ethics.  Pryor also served as the Arkansas Attorney General from 1999-2003.  He is currently a shareholder at the Brownstein Hyatt Farber Schreck law firm.

“In an era of intense ideologies, Mark Pryor has both the experience and temperament that can restore sanity to public policymaking,” said ACCF President and CEO Mark Bloomfield.  “He was extremely effective as a member of the Senate Gang of 14 and remains well-respected today in the private sector.  We are honored to add him to our Board of Advisors.”

For more than four decades, the ACCF has demonstrated a historical commitment to bipartisanship and to sound public policy through its Board of Advisors. From the public sector, it has included seven former cabinet secretaries, four U.S. Special Trade Representatives, two Administrators of the Environmental Protection Agency, former presidential chiefs of staff and senior White House staff from President Trump and his six predecessors, congressional committee chairmen and leadership from both Democrat and Republican conferences. From the private sector, CEOs and presidents from a wide array of businesses and trade associations have also served on our Board of Advisors.

“Very few organizations have the ACCF’s bipartisan credentials,” Pryor said.  “They have an established track record of bringing a sound, pro-growth approach to economic policymaking, which will be critical in the coming administration,” Pryor said.  “I am pleased to lend my voice and experience to this important organization.”
