The Center for National Policy is a think tank for economic and national security based in Washington, D.C.

Kokomo Mayor Greg Goodnight has been invited to be a join the Center for National Policy – a think tank focused on economic and national security. Goodnight says he hopes to give local governments more say in national decisions.

“I thought this was a good opportunity for cities in Indiana to have a little bit of input into some of the decisions that are made in Washington, D.C.” he says. “The fact that we have a little bit of input is exciting for Indiana.”

Goodnight says federal legislation often requires things of local governments without thinking about the costs.

“A lot of times there are mandates or unfunded mandates, and we will be able to hopefully make sure there’s not a negative impact on local government,” he says.

Goodnight will join the center as a Fellow for American Government.
