Abstract

"The legislative process may be broadly defined to include all the functions and activities of the modern legislature: making the laws, supervising the administration, representing and informing the people," writes George B. Galloway in his book The Legislative Process in Congress. It is the "third great function," that two-way task of representing the people in Washington and informing the people back home about governmental problems, which this paper will seek to explore.
