Andrew Langer Biography
Since 2008, Andrew Langer has been President of the Institute for Liberty. IFL works on a variety of issues—promoting and protecting small business, linking trade and prosperity, tilting against the regulatory state. But at the organization’s core, and Andrew’s, is the desire to promote freedom and individual rights. Andrew has been involved in free-market and limited-government causes for nearly 20 years, has testified before Congress nearly two dozen times, and spoke at the historic 912DC March.
A nationally-recognized expert on the impact of regulation on business, Andrew is regularly called on to offer innovative solutions to the problem of burdensome regulatory state. Prior to coming to IFL, he was the principal regulatory affairs lobbyist for the National Federation of Independent Business, the nation’s largest small business association. He has also worked with foreign governments on improving their small business sectors.
In addition to being IFL’s President, he hosts a weekly internet broadcast, the Langer Cast (heard on the RELM Network), and frequently guests hosts on Baltimore’s largest talk station, WBAL, as well as Cam & Company, on NRA-TV and SiriusXM’s Patriot Channel. In 2011, he was named one of Maryland’s “Influencers” by Campaigns and Elections magazine. He has a Master’s Degree in Public Administration from Troy University and a BA in International Relations from the College of William & Mary. His book, The War on Small Business is due on shelves in the Fall of 2014.
