U.S. PIRG Education Fund Staff
As federal Tax and Budget Associate for U.S. PIRG Education Fund, Dan Smith works to end special-interest giveaways, increase budget transparency and accountability, eliminate waste, ensure that subsidies and tax breaks serve the public, and close corporate tax loopholes. Based in Washington, D.C., he analyzes policy, researches solutions, and works with the media to promote fiscal policies that serve the public interest.
Mr. Smith's research has led to influential reports on the current budget crisis, including Toward Common Ground, a report co-authored with the National Taxpayers Union that put forth 56 specific deficit reduction recommendations that garner support from across the political spectrum, adding up to over $1 trillion in taxpayer savings. He has been quoted by the New York Times, USA Today, Bloomberg, CBS News, and other publications.
Mr. Smith received a BA in Government with honors from Cornell University.
