1. New, Michael. "In state declines vs out of state increases: An analysis of how state level anti-abortion legislation influences the incidence of abortion in neighboring states." Paper presented at the annual meeting of the Midwest Political Science Association 67th Annual National Conference, The Palmer House Hilton, Chicago, IL, <Not Available>. 2018-12-15 <http://citation.allacademic.com/meta/p361681_index.html>

Abstract: Many academic and policy studies provide evidence that state level restrictions on abortion, including public funding restrictions, parental involvement laws, and informed consent laws, reduce the number of abortions that take place within the boundaries of a given state. However, it is possible that women are circumventing these laws by seeking abortions in states where the laws are less restrictive. In this study, I will make use of a comprehensive time series cross sectional dataset of state abortion rates. This will allow me to analyze the extent to which these in-state abortion declines are offset by abortion increases in neighboring states.

Abstract: For decades, the Democrats have been viewed as the party of the poor with the
Republicans representing the rich. In recent years, however, a reverse pattern has
been seen, with Democrats showing strength in the richer “blue” states in the Northeast
and West, and Republicans dominating in the “red” states in the middle of the
country. Through multilevel analysis of individual-level survey data and county- and
state-level demographic and electoral data, we reconcile these patterns. We find that
there has indeed been a trend toward richer areas supporting the Democrats—but
within states and counties, and overall, the Democrats retain the support of the poorer
voters. This pattern has confused many political commentators into falsely believing
that Republicans represent poorer voters than Democrats.

Abstract: In the U.S., individual State Action Plans are being implemented to reduce greenhouse gas emissions that lead to global warming. This paper uses Linear Ordinary Least Squares (OLS) regressions to determine the contributing factors of state emissions, using data from 1990-2000 in all fifty states. The results show that over 90 percent of state emissions factors are attributable to fossil fuel consumption variables (coal, natural gas, and petroleum). However, when regressions are run in the absence of the consumption variables, the results show that transportation, population, income and state policies play a role in affecting state emissions levels. Overall, the findings indicate that decision-makers need to adopt policies to control consumption of fossil fuels and implement mass public transit to account for growing commute times that increase greenhouse gas levels.

Abstract: Currently, an abundance of research analyzes the impact of state political and institutional environments on state supreme court decision-making. However, little research exists on the adjudicatory relationship between state supreme courts and the state executive branch. Governors across the country possess varying amounts of institutional authority over the agencies which comprise their executive branch. Examples of gubernatorial power over the executive branch include appointment power, budgetary power, and agency rule review power. One important factor that affects state supreme court decision-making on certain issues is the institutional capacity for retaliatory response from political elites. Retaliatory responses include legislative revision or constitutional amendments to override court decisions. Along these lines, the institutional capacity and power of the governor over the executive branch could also affect the degree of deference from state supreme courts. I argue that institutional control over the state executive branch by the governor can create a politically threatening environment for justices if increased control over the executive branch makes it easier for governors to ignore and evade implementation of decisions involving state agencies. Conversely, fragmentation of executive branch authority could cause justices to be less attentive to gubernatorial preferences because of increased difficulty of policy retaliation from the governor. Using cases from the Brace and Hall Database, I show that state supreme courts are more likely to rule in favor of state administrative agencies in states where the governor has increased appointment control over agency leadership and the power to review agency rules.
