Should I attribute the views of an RFF expert to RFF?
While RFF researchers are encouraged to offer their expertise to inform policy decisions, the views expressed by RFF researchers are their own and may differ from those of other RFF experts, its officers, or its directors. RFF does not take positions on specific legislative proposals.
