What is America’s 21st Century destiny? The people vs. the Government.

John Tillman is one of the nation’s most prominent leaders of a state-based think tank. As CEO of the Illinois Policy Institute, Tillman transformed what many wrote off as a blue state into a place ripe for free-market reform. Tillman founded or co-founded a variety of key organizations in Illinois to create the competitive capacity needed to turn Illinois around. His success has become a model for liberty-based organizations across the country. Tillman won the State Policy Network’s prestigious Roe Award in 2011 for his leadership, innovation and accomplishments in the world of public policy. This annual award pays tribute to those in the state public policy movement whose achievements have greatly advanced the free-market philosophy. John is regularly featured in the media, and has appeared on FOX News Channel, FOX Business, the BBC and NPR, as well as in The Wall Street Journal, the Washington Times and other news outlets.
