Abstract: When a new deadly disease emerged in urban gay enclaves in the early 1980s, officials originally named it G.R.I.D. (gay-related immune-deficiency). The New Right used AIDS as the latest evidence of America’s moral decline, stoking public fears that the disease would spill over into the “general population” and demanding that states implement more invasive control measures. This paper explores how campaigns to criminalize HIV spread across the country from the mid-1980s. Although states had low-level offenses on the books punishing the spread of "venereal disease," they were rarely invoked and the penalties imposed under them were either misdemeanors or petty infractions. In the wake of HIV panic, lawmakers for the first time began to enact criminal legislation specifically targeting people living with an infectious disease. As this analysis reveals, fears of sex work and homosexuality drove early efforts, while one state’s law helped to spread HIV-specific criminal laws across the nation, sparking an epidemic of legislation that would spread to 45 states.

Abstract: While a number of studies have found evidence of gender differences in the behavior of legislators, little work has examined how the organization and resources of state legislatures influence such gender differences. I argue that gender differences should be greatest in less professional legislatures where members have fewest resources for engaging in legislative activities and are less constrained by constituency demands. In such legislatures, members may be more likely to work on issues that they have greater knowledge of, and they may have greater leeway to pursue their own policy priorities. As a result, I expect that women legislators should be more likely than their male colleagues to engage in legislative activities related to traditional areas of women’s concern in less professional legislatures, and that such differences should diminish among more professional legislators. Using data on men and women state legislators’ behavior, I evaluate the impact of gender conditioned the major components of legislative professionalism. I find that gender differences in activities related to welfare policy are more pronounced among legislators serving in institutions with lower salaries, shorter session lengths, and with less differentiated committee systems.
