Tax Policy Center

Megan Randall

Research Associate

I am passionate about providing state and local policymakers with the evidence-based resources they need to respond effectively to fiscal policy challenges.


Megan Randall is a research associate in the Urban-Brookings Tax Policy Center at the Urban Institute, where she works on projects pertaining to state and local finance.

Before joining Urban, Randall conducted research on several social policy topics in Texas, including state health care, housing, and tax policy. Her master’s report evaluated the effects of tax abatements on public school finance in Texas, earning the Emmette S. Redford Award from the Lyndon B. Johnson School of Public Affairs and the Central Texas American Planning Association Award for outstanding independent research.

Randall graduated summa cum laude with a bachelor’s degree in political science from the University of California, Berkeley, and earned master’s degrees in public affairs and in community and regional planning from the University of Texas at Austin.
