Jesse M. Crosson

Please join me in congratulating Jesse M. Crosson, assistant professor of political science, whose co-authored article in The Legislative Studies Quarterly titled “Partisan Competition and the Decline in Legislative Capacity Among Congressional Offices" was named the 2022 Best Publication on Effective Lawmaking.

The award is presented awarded by the Center of Effective Lawmaking who noted the authors’ findings “demonstrate that the observed decline in legislative capacity is essentially symmetric across the parties; that individual members themselves reduce their offices’ legislative capacity the longer they stay in Congress; and this decline is exacerbated by the election of new members and/or changes in party control of the chamber.”

Congratulations, Professor Crosson!
