    Public policies that you probably know about include the minimal age for drinking, voting, and driving in your state. But I think you'd have a hard time finding four players that oppose these existing policies.

    However, you may want to research such public policies as health care, illegality of marijuana, teaching of sex education or creationism in public schools, or No Child Left Behind.
