Your task for this week’s discussion topic is to find an issue (not the one you are working on for your lobbying project) and describe how a legislative committee solved the policy problem. What were the competing interest groups? What were the key negotiating points? What was the committee dynamic? Was their work altered by the body as a whole? For this discussion post, I’m looking for more than some Internet links. Your job is to tell me (and the whole class) what happened and why.
