PACIFIC RESEARCH INSTITUTE FOR PUBLIC POLICY
 

According to its website, "mission of the Pacific Research Institute (PRI) is to champion freedom, opportunity, and personal responsibility for all individuals by advancing free-market policy solutions." (http://www.pacificresearch.org/about/index.html)

The website also states that "PRI strives to change the perception of lawmakers and the public so that the starting point for any policy solution is a private, voluntary action, rather than unnecessary, and even harmful, government intervention." (http://www.pacificresearch.org/about/history.html)

PRI is referenced in a 1998 Phillip Morris memo as having a long-standing funding arrangement with the tobacco industry giant. (http://www.disinfopedia.org/wiki.phtml?title=Pacific_Research_Institute; accessed 4/7/04)

According to the Observer (Antony Barnett, Bush attacks environment 'scare stories', 4/4/04, Pg. 22), PRI has received $130,000 from Exxon Mobil since 1998.
