Anderson, David N.
MetadataShow full item record
This Senior Individualized Project is in two parts. The first section is the result of my investigation on lobbying in the Michigan State Legislature. It deals with definitions, legal aspects of lobbying, methods and techniques, communication distortion, public visibility, the effects of Watergate, further necessary reforms, the Campaign Reform Act and a comparison of Lansing to Washington in the field of lobbying. The major source of information came from a series of interviews I conducted. It was more an intuitive approach than one of statistical precision. The second section is a report on the Companion Study I worked on, concerning vehicle utilization, for the Department of Management and Budget, State of Michigan. Here the bureaucratic structure is reviewed; as well as, the people and the project in which I participated. Further, I have included my own insights gained while working inside a bureaucracy.If you are not a current K College student, faculty, or staff member, email email@example.com to request access to this SIP.
