"Frame Analysis: Interest group influence during federal environmental rulemaking"

Grant in Aid of Research

Final Report: "Spring 2010 I attended the Midwest Political Science Conference in Chicago, IL. At this conference I presented “Frames of Influence: Interest Groups and Environmental Rules,” which was part of a regulatory policy panel. I received insurmountable feedback, which was incorporated into the paper. Additionally, this paper was recently accepted by Review of Policy Research journal for publication. Without the travel award from the University of Wisconsin-Green Bay’s Institute for Research I would not have been able to cover expenses (registration/lodging) to attend this conference. I thank you for this award, which helped me to interact with colleagues within my field."
