Summary

  • Uses the Clean Air Amendments of 1977 as a legislative case study to illustrate the lawmaking process by actually filming our elected representatives as they struggle to translate the issues and the conflicting desires of the people into the law of the land. Includes segments of committee hearings, strategy sessions, floor debate and joint House-Senate hearings, and follows the actions of key legislators.
