Voting Behavior

Find here below the instructions for this research assignment. Also, find attached the first assignment directly linked to this assignment which discusses the bill I’m proposing in the Florida State LegislatureYour task for the first major assignment is to research and report on the fundamental characteristics of the state government and legislature you will be trying to impact with your lobbying issue. This assignment, unlike the next two, is research-heavy, so I am looking for a well-documented variety of sources with a bibliography.The paper has three distinct components that I will be grading on:A. Political CultureAssess and report on the political culture of your state [Florida]. Analyze how political culture, history, demography and social forces have shaped how citizens view politics, what they expect from government, and especially how they have shaped governing institutions. “A” papers will describe how political culture and history have shaped and influenced how politics is practiccommittee ed and how institutions such as the legislature and executive branch utilize power.B. Key Relationship AnalysisPick a key member from the Florida State that will be considering your bill. This should be someone you’ve identified as important to the prospects that you hope to influence, and should not be a dedicated supporter or committed opponent.Analyze what makes them tick. What are the key internal and external relationships that influences their voting behavior? Please make certain that you comment on the variety of external relationships—i.e. interest groups, family, colleagues, governor and so forth. Also, take a look at the member’s district and the type of relationship and memberships they have back home. Look at this committee member biography, quotes, and other key voters in the committee to see how you can leverage them on your side for the purposes of this bill proposal.How can those relationships be leveraged for the purposes of your issue?C. Institutional andParliamentary StructureBased on the lectures and readings about parliamentary procedure and the four “knows” of the legislature, demonstrate you know something about how the legislature is organized. In this section, provide me with a concise backgrounder on what I need to know of the rules and make-up of the Florida state legislature. Pay particular attention to relevant facts that impact your legislation. This should be an informative essay about the committee structure, partisan structure, leadership, and relevant rules that someone unfamiliar with your state would need to know if they start to lobby. Please do not simply cut and paste from the state legislature’s website. Give me practical information.Grading RubricYour papers will be graded based on the following rubric.1.    Lobbying Plan proposal: Submitted, timely and well-prepared lobbying plan proposal. 10 points2.    Answered specified questions: Paper addresses fully all the questions posed in the assignment. 20 points3.    Integration of lecture/reading materials and analysis: Paper addresses and integrates key themes from lecture materials and pulls from these themes to assert well-argued conclusions. 40 points4.    Writing/concise: Paper is well written, avoids grammatical and spelling errors, observes page constraints, and is succinct. 10 points5.    Research: Paper uses a variety of quality and credible sources to argue points effectively.
