The Working Paper

NLPES issues a comprehensive, entertaining, hard-hitting, stop-the-presses newsletter. While it hasn't yet been recognized by the Nobel Committee (it's only a matter of time), The Working Paper (formerly called NLPES News) is required reading for those keeping up with the field of legislative program evaluation. On-line versions are available below.
