The common theme of all of PEL’s work is to provide facts and objective analyses to public officials and the general public so that sound public policy decisions can result.

 As an independent nonprofit organization, PEL has been widely recognized as being free of partisan considerations, vested interests, profit motivation or other factors that can often be perceived as clouding government decision-making.
