Congressional Procedures And The Policy Process (eBook)
de Walter J. Oleszek, Bill Heniff Jr., Elizabeth Rybicki e Mark J. Oleszek
Sobre o livro
As a governing body, Congress continually adapts to changes in process and practice. The Eleventh Edition of Walter Oleszek’s definitive work updated with new developments and fresh research, continues to examine how this procedural context governs every aspect of the House and Senate and affects lawmakers as they make voting decisions, expedite legislation, or defeat a bill. Congressional Procedures and the Policy Process reveals how the majority and minority parties use procedural devices to achieve their political goals and offers an assessment of the role of conference committees in reconciling bicameral differences. Not shying away from the complexity of the topic, Oleszek and new coauthors Mark Oleszek, Elizabeth Rybicki, and Bill Heniff Jr. ensure that the machinations of Congress are understandable through an array of interesting examples, topical cases, and anecdotes that they are uniquely positioned to witness and experience firsthand.
