Scholarly discourse on political ethics and the ethical dilemmas encountered by political practitioners seldom connect. The objective of Drawing the Line is to apply ethical principles, reasoning, and judgment to the problems that are encountered by legislators in the fifty states. Legislative bodies have rarely been held in as low esteem as they are today, in part because the integrity of members and of the process is under severe challenge. Legislatures have responded to criticism from the media and the public with law and regulation, but they have yet to take ethics seriously enough. Alan Rosenthal, who has worked with over thirty state legislatures and written previously about the institution and the process, argues that appearance as a standard is weighed too heavily in the deliberation over ethics, while the legislator's responsibility to the legislature and to the legislative process is weighed too lightly. Separate chapters explore conflicts of interest, relationships with lobbyists, and campaign finance, offering recommendations for reform. Other chapters examine the responsibilities of the legislature for managing its own affairs and promoting ethical conduct among its members

The major interest is the use of power as exhibited by the JCAE in its relations with the executive branch and Congress as a whole. One purpose of this study is to examine the sources of the Committee's authority and to describe its particular techniques as legislator and policy-maker. Another is to ascertain the qualities which set the JCAE apart as an unusual governmental mechanism. Finally, we attempt to assess the significance of these dynamic components from the standpoint of accepted concepts of American government

Engines of democracy : politics and policymaking in state legislatures by Alan Rosenthal ( Book )
5 editions published in 2009 in English and held by 182 WorldCat member libraries worldwide
"Rosenthal brings together a lifetime of research and experience on state legislative politics into one eminently readable volume--a dynamic, inside view of the people involved, the politics that prevail, and the interest groups and lobbyists who advocate their causes. Building on earlier work with new data and recent interviews and observations, Rosenthal looks at the way representation works, Americans' critical view of their legislatures, the role of legislative leaders, the dynamics of executive-legislative relationships, as well as norms and ethics. Both a complement and contrast to the policymaking process on Capitol Hill, Engines of Democracy proves that no one gives insight into state legislators and their work the way Alan Rosenthal can."--Publisher's website
