The Executive, other federal departments, special interest groups, and professional lobbyists exert increasing, and what some believe is undue, influence on Congress. Invisible handshakes with special interests and political action committees--as opposed to study and deliberation--have an increasing impact on the drafting of legislation. This work analyzes these and other problems and offers some recommendations for change. It also gives a firsthand account of some of the important debates and issues which have shaped Congressional procedures.
