Policy Briefs

Our policy briefs are designed to introduce and get you up to speed on different areas of public policy. They include overviews of a particular issue, focused looks at a challenge or solution, and recommendations for best practices or changes to policy. At Aii, we keep our policy briefs to a few pages and write at a level intended for the general public. They cover innovation, technology, and infrastructure from public policy to the technical aspects. Get started now!


White Papers

Our white papers are longer and more nuanced reports giving policymakers and industry leaders a clear roadmap through a complex issue. They cover a number of public policy challenges, focusing on pro-innovation solutions that can be implemented in a nonpartisan way through law, regulation, or simply best practices. Ready to tackle the nation’s infrastructure challenges? Start reading now!


Letters and Statements

Our policy letters are how we go on record with Congress. Sometimes we are asked to testify or attend a hearing as subject matter experts. Other times, we highlight the importance and urgency of an issue for the Members to see. Here are a few of those instances.


Chairman's Corner
