The Daily Iowan referenced research by Dennis Coates (Economics) in an editorial urging the rejection of a tax break for the Iowa Speedway. Studies by Dr. Coates have concluded that such tax breaks do not benefit local inhabitants because most of the money generated by the stadium ends up going to the owners.

Laura Hussey (Political Science) discussed the public's anxiety about the NSA and the scope of its operations in an article in the Hagerstown Herald Mail.

The Austin-American Statesman PolitiFact quoted Roy Meyers (Political Science) in a story about how the Texas Liberty PAC erroneously blamed a Republican House member for sponsoring "a bill that funded Obamacare."

Donald F. Norris (Public Policy) talked about the impact of the Affordable Health Care Act on the upcoming Maryland gubernatorial election in an article in the Washington Times.
