Abstract : This dissertation has two goals: to better explicate the conditional theory of micro (individual level) legislative behavior that seems to underlie this recent work and to test it among three hundred and sixty one interview protocols gathered from members of the U.S. House of Representatives during a four month period (March-July 1977) of the first session of the 95th Congress.
