Governors, Legislatures, and Budgets: Diversity across the American States

Synopsis

How does gubernatorial and legislative influence over state spending vary across the American states? This is the question that Clynch and Lauth set out to answer, offering case studies from all areas of the country. The book adds to our understanding of who has power and how governors and legislators use their influence to shape spending priorities. The case studies show a wide diversity in states' center of power--some have their power strongly resting with the governor, while others show a domination by the legislature, and still others paint a picture of evenly dispersed power.
