  • Description: Davies’ Legislative Law and Process in a Nutshell describes the process used by all legislative institutions to refine bills and examines the tactics of advocates that speed or impede legislation. The life of legislative law after enactment is detailed, including how agencies, local governments, and businesses use statutes and how citizens, career lobbyists, lawyers, and courts adjust legislative words to fit life’s realities. This edition retains the practical insights of the previous editions and describes the impact the Internet and cell phones have had on the daily work of the legislature for both outsiders and insiders. It also analyzes the influence of political partisanship of recent years.
