Laws Promoting Evidence-Based Practice: Experiences from Three States

A brief from the Pew-MacArthur Results First Initiative highlights legal strategies employed by three states — Washington, Oregon, and Tennessee — to increase the use of evidence-based programs and practices. Though the laws and the policy domains they affect are diverse, the insights gained from these experiences converge to provide valuable considerations for future evidence-based policymaking.
