Turf wars how Congressional committees claim jurisdiction by David C King( )
9 editions published in 1997 in English and held by 1,234 WorldCat member libraries worldwide
For most bills in American legislatures, the issue of turf?or which committee has jurisdiction over a bill?can make all the difference. Turf governs the flow and fate of all legislation. In this innovative study, David C. King explains how jurisdictional areas for committees are created and changed in Congress. Political scientists have long maintained that jurisdictions are relatively static, changing only at times of dramatic reforms. Not so, says King. Combining quantitative evidence with interviews and case studies, he shows how on-going turf wars make jurisdictions fluid. According to Kin
Why people don't trust government ( Book )
4 editions published between 1997 and 2002 in English and Japanese and held by 991 WorldCat member libraries worldwide
"Bringing together essays by leading Harvard scholars, this book explores the roots of mistrust. It first examines government's current scope, its actual performance, and citizens' perceptions of its performance. It then assesses many possible explanations that have been offered for the decline of trust, including the end of the Cold War, elevated expectations following World War II, a weakened economy, the effects of globalization, resentment over political scandals, and incompetence of bureaucrats."--Cover

Congressional vote options by David C King( Book )
4 editions published in 1999 in English and held by 69 WorldCat member libraries worldwide
Abstract: Among political practitioners, there is conventional wisdom about the outcomes of critical and salient legislative votes. 'This vote,' we hear, ' will either win by a little or lose by a lot.' Real-world examples suggest coalition leaders purchase 'hip-pocket' votes and "if you need me" pledges, which are converted to favorable votes when they will yield a victory. When the outcome is uncertain, such a process -- securing commitments in advance and calling them in if necessary -- is advantageous relative to traditional vote buying. Excess votes are not bought, nor are votes purchased for a losing effort. In effect, the leader secures options on votes. Given uncertainty, buying vote options yields two outcomes in conceivably winnable situations, one a narrow victory, the other a substantial loss. Such a distribution of outcomes is not explicable in a traditional vote-buying framework. We look for evidence of this pattern -- the tracings of 'if you need me pledges' -- by examining all Congressional Quarterly key votes from 1975 through 1998. On these critical and salient votes, narrow victories are much more frequent than narrow losses. Furthermore, when leaders lose key votes, as predicted, they lose by bigger margins than when they win. Finally, we discuss leadership strategies for keeping 'narrow wins' from unraveling into 'big losses.'

Government by committee ( Visual )
1 edition published in 2012 in English and held by 2 WorldCat member libraries worldwide
Most of the actual work of legislating is performed by the committees and subcommittees within Congress. This division of legislative labor has emerged as a means of responding to the profusion of bills introduced each congressional term. Such an approach also allows members to gain expertise in particular aspects of governmental activity. This episode explores the committee structure and formal leadership of Congress, and various routes bills may take before being enacted into law

The first branch ( Visual )
1 edition published in 2012 in English and held by 2 WorldCat member libraries worldwide
The founders of the American republic believed that the bulk of power exercised by a national government should be in the hands of the legislature. Article I of the Constitution is both highly specific and vague about the powers Congress may exercise. This episode follows three current and past members of Congress through the election process and their early days in office. It examines the differences between the ways the Senate and House of Representatives operate, the every-ten-year redistricting process, and the challenges congressional members face not only in the halls of Congress but in maintaining close ties to their home districts
Leader for a nation ( Visual )
1 edition published in 2012 in English and held by 2 WorldCat member libraries worldwide
The president operates within a system of separate institutions that share power. Presidents must work with members of Congress, bureaucrats, and, sometimes, federal judges to achieve their goals. Whether a president's initiatives are likely to succeed or fail depends on several factors, including the force of circumstance, the stage of the president's term, the president's support in Congress, and the level of public support for the president's leadership
