This comprehensive volume examines the historic and contemporary role of the state legislatures of all 50 states, offering insight into important details of how each of these legislative bodies functions. State legislatures are at the heart of the American political system. Scenes of both flamboyant partisanship and innovative compromise, state legislatures often take the lead on issues affecting the entire nation, engaging in a fascinating give-and-take with Washington in the course of making laws that shape our lives. "The Legislative Branch of State Government: People, Process, and Politics", is one of three titles in ABC-CLIO's About State Government set, offering comprehensive coverage of contemporary American politics at the state level. Each of the three volumes focuses on a specific governmental branch, providing both general information and comparative details on how that branch operates in each state. Ranging from colonial times to the present, this volume takes a broad look at how the nation's state legislative institutions have evolved and operate. Combined with the other two volumes in the set, a clear overview of state government emerges. "The Legislative Branch of State Government" covers the historical, constitutional, and political environment in which state legislatures exist, then focuses on their functions and processes, the people who serve in them, and their interaction with other key political institutions. A concluding chapter looks at characteristics that make each of the 50 state legislative bodies fascinating and unique.
