Panelist Bio

Kevin Kane
Pelican Institute for Public Policy

Kevin Kane serves as the president of the Pelican Institute for Public Policy, which he founded in 2008. The Institute's mission is to promote freedom and prosperity in Louisiana. Kevin has helped advance this mission through work on policy issues including education, health care and criminal justice.

While The Pelican Institute does not have a formal position on the privatization of government services, it does promote policies that limit the scope and cost of government. If privatization is warranted, the Institute supports it only if it is done correctly.

Kevin is a native of New York and a graduate of Tulane University and the Loyola University School of Law, and is a fellow of the Loyola Institute of Politics. He sits on the board of the Choice Foundation, which operates three charter schools that opened after Hurricane Katrina. Kevin lives in New Orleans with his wife Lesley and their two children and never tires of exploring America’s most interesting city.

     06/18 - Louisiana: Sportsman’s Paradise or Problem?  (ENCORE)

Is Louisiana a Sportsman’s Paradise or Problem?
For decades Louisiana has proclaimed itself as the “Sportsman’s Paradise.” But for today’s hunters, changes to Louisiana’s landscape have caused a decline in the quality of the state’s deer habitat and smaller game. For coastal fishermen, private property rights often unduly restrict access to waters that are considered public in any other state.
