ON-Lion Letter

In December, the Wisconsin Institute for Law & Liberty (WILL) in Milwaukee announced that Mario Loyola will join it as a senior fellow, focusing his research and outreach on constitutional law and federalism.

Loyola began his career in corporate law and since 2003 has divided his time between government service and research and writing at prominent policy institutes.  He served in the Pentagon as a special assistant to the undersecretary of defense for policy, and on Capitol Hill as counsel for foreign and defense affairs to the Senate Republican Policy Committee and a senior advisor to U.S. Sen. Ben Sasse of Nebraska.  Loyola is a contributing editor at National Review and a senior fellow at the Texas Public Policy Foundation (TPPF), where he was director of federalism and constitutional studies.

"We are pleased to have Mario join WILL as we continue to grow in size, scope, and influence," WILL president and general counsel Rick Esenberg said.  "His expertise and experience adds another dimension to the policy and legal work we do.  WILL has grown four-fold in as many years and with the addition of Mario, we can continue to expand our original research and legal work capacity."

"With Americans' trust in government today near the lowest it's ever been, the creeping federal takeover of state governments gives added importance to policy issues large and small," according to Loyola.  "I'm excited to keep exploring these issues at WILL, and help Wisconsin and WILL impact the larger policy debates that are -- or should be -- occurring in the state capitols and Washington."

Milwaukee's Lynde and Harry Bradley Foundation supports WILL and TPPF.
