Parental Leave Legislation in the U.S. Senate: Toward a Model of Roll-Call Voting.
Monroe, Pamela A.; Garand, James C.
Family Relations, v40 n2 p208-17 Apr 1991
Developed and tested a model of roll-call voting by U.S. senators on a cloture motion relating to the Parental and Medical Leave Act of 1988. Senate roll-call voting was found to be dominated by policy liberalism and party, whereas the impact of contextual demand variables was relatively minor and indirect, and votes could be accurately predicted.
