WASHINGTON, DC – Fallbrook resident Teresa Platt, a 26-year veteran of the environmental policy debate, has been named director of The National Center for Public Policy Research’s Environment and Enterprise Institute, the group announced Nov. 13.

Prior to joining The National Center, Platt served for 13 years as director of the national mink farming association, where she built strong and broad coalitions that led to the passage of legislation at both the federal and state levels to combat eco-terrorism.

Platt previously served as co-director of the Fishermen’s Coalition, a non-profit she founded in 1992 to educate the public on responsible fishing. In that capacity, she was a key leader in a successful grassroots effort to amend the Marine Mammal Protection Act (MMPA).

"We’re enormously pleased to have such a seasoned and accomplished environmental policy authority as Teresa Platt on our team," said Amy Ridenour, chairman of The National Center for Public Policy Research. "Teresa not only has an extensive background in public policy, but first-hand knowledge of Advertisement

the costly and often counter-productive impact that regulations have on small businesses, having run the shoreside operations for her family’s 1,000-ton high seas yellowfin tuna fishing vessel."

"Platt’s appointment was made possible by continued robust growth of our budget," said David Ridenour, president of The National Center for Public Policy Research. "Americans are concerned about the cost and unintended consequences of federal regulatory policy and they’re turning to us to do something about it. We didn’t build that public concern. Federal policies did."

"I’m thrilled to be part of The National Center and honored to help them on their important work of expanding and exporting America’s unique brand of freedom," said Platt.

The National Center for Public Policy Research is a conservative, free-market, non-profit think-tank established in 1982. It is supported by the voluntary gifts of over 100,000 individual recent supporters. In 2011, it received about two percent of its revenue from corporate sources and the vast majority of its revenue from over 350,000 individual gifts.
