Although the U.S. Constitution requires that the House of Representatives and the Senate pass legislation in identical form before it can be sent to the president for final approval, the process of resolving differences between the chambers has received surprisingly little scholarly attention. Hong Min Park, Steven S. Smith, and Ryan J. Vander Wielen document the dramatic changes in inter-cameral resolution that have occurred over recent decades, and examine the various considerations made by the chambers when determining the manner in which the House and Senate pursue conciliation. Politics Over Process demonstrates that partisan competition, increasing party polarization, and institutional reforms have encouraged the majority party to more creatively restructure post-passage processes, often avoiding the traditional standing committee and conference processes altogether.

MEDIA REVIEWS
"This book brings to the forefront an important--yet significantly understudied--issue in legislative decision making: post passage politics. This book offers the most comprehensive investigation of that topic to date, and the authors' arguments provide a creative and insightful explanation for how and why policy changes after initial passage."
--Nathan Monroe, University of California, Merced

"A comprehensive look at a timely and important topic in Congress . . . makes a substantial contribution both by linking the conference committee changes carefully to broad patterns in congressional politics and by bringing new data to bear on the causes and consequences of the changes."
--Scott Meinke, Bucknell University
