Patterns of State-Regional Cooperation in Nebraska.
Bansal, Prem Lata
This study empirically explores patterns of authority delegation by Nebraska state agencies to substate regional organizations and evaluates the effectiveness of those patterns in realizing the goals of decentralization. Information about the field operations and role perceptions of various state agencies was gathered through use of a self-administered questionnaire and through meetings and interviews with top staff members of major state agencies. The study is organized into three chapters. Chapter 1 discusses the changing concepts of federalism and decentralization, and outlines the basic lexicon used in studying decentralization. Chapter 2 discusses the objectives and methodology of the study and reports on the models of authority delegation found in different agencies. Chapter 3 examines the findings, evaluates each decentralization model, and offers some suggestions for the organization of regional activities. (Author/JG)
