POL 401 - The American Congress

Credits: 3

Students examine the representative and lawmaking functions of the U.S. Congress. The process of transforming bills into law is detailed; however, examination of the impact of committee/subcommittee discretion, leadership imperatives, party strategy, White House initiatives, media agenda-setting, and other forces illustrate how the ideal of orderly, coherent lawmaking may be inhibited.
