Feb. 2, 2017 – Leaders of a new Nashville-based think tank led by former Tennessee Attorney General Bob Cooper say they aim to promote “moderate, pragmatic public policy.”

The group is called ThinkTennessee and got its nonprofit status certified last month, said its president, Shanna Singh Hughey.
