Pae Praises Aspen Institute's Policy Recommendations Following International Discussions
Rep. Daniel Pae, R-Lawton, participated in the Aspen Institute Germany's Laboratories of Democracy Initiative, a transatlantic exchange program, and worked with fellow legislators from the United States and Germany to develop recommendations to improve transatlantic relations. The report was released on Monday, Aug. 28.
“I’m extremely proud of how our transatlantic cohort came together to develop this publication," said Pae, who chairs the House Rural Development Committee. "The challenge for us now is to turn these ideas into reality. We must be proactive when addressing structural changes.”
The policy recommendations are grouped into three categories: economic dimension, social dimension, and environmental dimension. The report also includes action points for the state level to help implement the recommendations.
A total of 16 legislators, eight Americans and eight Germans, participated in the 2023 program, which included several virtual sessions and meetings in Dusseldorf, North Rhine-Westphalia, in May 2023 and Harrisburg, Pennsylvania, in June 2023.
