A Comparative Analysis of Associations of Governors in Argentina and Mexico
Unformatted Document Text:  22 municipal governments to re-build public infrastructure and to aid civilians affected by natural disaster. The Conago proposed that the rules governing the Fund be streamlined so that government agencies could act promptly when faced by an emergency; the new rules were accepted and implemented in 2004 (Conago 2004). The Conago has been very active in the formulation of policies that protect Mexican migrants (especially those residing in the United States). Because of recommendations made by the Conference extraordinary funds were allocated for the repatriation of corpses, for the establishment of mobile consulates, and for the provision of health services to emigrants in the federal budget for 2004. The Conago has also borne pressure on Mexican financial institutions to facilitate the remittance of funds by migrants to their families and to reduce the associated banking fees. This section clearly shows that both the Conago in Mexico and the Front in Argentina became central political actors and gained important standing and influence in the design and implementation of national public policies. In both cases, these associations granted governors more access to national officials such that their preferences were considered when federal policies and programs were discussed, a result that probably would have been different had governors acted independently. For both Mexican and Argentine governors, fiscal issues were central components of their relationships with national authorities and thus both associations focused on obtaining results in that realm. In a context of progressive economic deterioration, the Front forced national authorities to assure that the basic scheme of distribution of resources would not be modified to favor the national government. In the case of Mexico, despite the initial opposition of President Fox, the Conago organized a National Fiscal Convention with the objective of reforming the institutional framework that regulates fiscal relations between the federal government and the states. While the Front remained active only in the fiscal area, the Mexican Conago advanced proposals in other policy areas, obtaining important results in relation to migration issues and the regulation of federal funds transferred to the states. The standing committees of the Conago explain,

municipal governments to re-build public infrastructure and to aid civilians affected by
natural disaster. The Conago proposed that the rules governing the Fund be streamlined
so that government agencies could act promptly when faced by an emergency; the new
rules were accepted and implemented in 2004 (Conago 2004).
The Conago has been very active in the formulation of policies that protect Mexican
migrants (especially those residing in the United States). Because of recommendations
made by the Conference extraordinary funds were allocated for the repatriation of
corpses, for the establishment of mobile consulates, and for the provision of health
services to emigrants in the federal budget for 2004. The Conago has also borne pressure
on Mexican financial institutions to facilitate the remittance of funds by migrants to their
families and to reduce the associated banking fees.
This section clearly shows that both the Conago in Mexico and the Front in Argentina
became central political actors and gained important standing and influence in the design
and implementation of national public policies. In both cases, these associations granted
governors more access to national officials such that their preferences were considered
when federal policies and programs were discussed, a result that probably would have
been different had governors acted independently.
For both Mexican and Argentine governors, fiscal issues were central components of
their relationships with national authorities and thus both associations focused on

Front forced national authorities to assure that the basic scheme of distribution of
resources would not be modified to favor the national government. In the case of Mexico,
despite the initial opposition of President Fox, the Conago organized a National Fiscal
Convention with the objective of reforming the institutional framework that regulates
fiscal relations between the federal government and the states. While the Front remained
