The Texas Public Policy Foundation is a conservative think tank based in Austin, Texas that is listed as a “partner organization” in the Charles Koch Institute‘s [email protected] program. The TPPF has received at least $1.1 million from the Charles G. Koch Charitable Foundation and nearly $5 million from Donors Capital Fund and DonorsTrust.
According to its 2017 annual report, Life: Powered was originally TPPF’s “Fueling Freedom” project, which launched in 2015 “to combat the Obama-era Clean Power Plan.”
The annual report explains how Life: Powered will expand on the scope of the original “Fueling Freedom project:
“In 2018, we’ll be taking the project to a new level, expanding it to cover every aspect of the policies that promote abundant, reliable, and affordable energy to power modern life.”
TPPF’s Kathleen Hartnett-White was director of the Fueling Freedom project and co-authored the “Fueling Freedom” book with Heritage Foundation economist Stephen Moore. White is now listed as a senior fellow of the Life: Powered project.
Though there isn’t yet much public presence for the project, TPPF is currently hiring a Project Coordinator and Policy Analyst for “Life: Powered.” The organization also has a “Life:Powered” playlist on Youtube.
