About the Speaker

Steven Greenhut is senior fellow and western region director of the R Street Institute. He authors op-eds and policy studies, testifies before state and municipal legislative bodies, and speaks, makes public commentary, and works a coalition ally to move state and local policy in this region in a more free-market direction.

Greenhut joined R Street in February 2016, having most recently served as California columnist for the San Diego Union-Tribune. In this role, from his base in Sacramento, he wrote a regular reported news column covering the state capital and issues outside of San Diego. Previously, he was vice president of journalism at the Franklin Center, where he oversaw a team of watchdog editors and reporters.

Greenhut spent much of his career as a member of the editorial board of the Orange County Register, where he still writes a weekly local-politics column. He also spent nearly five years as a building and remodeling editor at Better Homes & Gardens magazine and continues to ply his interest in remodeling old houses.

He is the author of two books, 2004’s  Abuse of Power: How the Government Misuses Eminent Domain and 2009’s Plunder! How Public Employee Unions are Raiding Treasuries, Controlling Our Lives and Bankrupting the Nation.

Greenhut is a 2005 recipient of the Thomas Paine Award, granted by the Institute for Justice in recognition of his writing to promote liberty. In 2011, he placed second in the International Policy Network R.C. Hoiles Prize for Journalism.
