This study is an attempt to determine the degree to which state legislators consider citizen input and opinion when making day-to-day policy decisions, based on numerous variables, including political party affiliation, tenure in office, full-time vs. part-time status, and especially gender. Ultimately, we found that none of these variables were significant predictors of consideration of citizen input-including gender-a conclusion that contradicts much of the prevailing literature on the subject.doi:10.1080/09718923.2010.11892840 fatcat:nvv7sra5mzhspns5hzhblf33ra
