Hot Issues

COWS often works on issues with heightened interest or immediacy.  These issues often cross program areas, and may have geographic specificity.  

For instance, our work in Wisconsin has landed at the epicenter of a national debate on jobs, unions, and collective bargaining; state budgets; and taxes and fairness. The definition, structure, and creation of jobs for a green economy represents another issue of national import.
