Part 1:

A clear and complete discussion of the legislative process
Part 2:

You will choose one of the political issues listed in Burkhardt & Nathaniel on pages 392-393
Tie that political issue to current legislation being debated in your own state’s house or senate
Describe both sides of that issue – for and against – clearly and thoroughly
Explain your own position, and explain why using research-based fact, not just your own opinion.
Make sure you also include a clear, separate introduction and conclusion as a part of this assignment, as these are worth separate points on the grading rubric.

NOTE: Please avoid the following topics, as these do not demonstrate research into current legislation in health care and are more “hot button” issues that do not often result in a strong paper:

Abortion
Staffing ratios/mandatory overtime
Physician assisted suicide
