You will devise a Policy Analysis paper that identifies proposed or current legislation (State or Federal) you would like to explore. The Policy Analysis Paper is comprehensive and acts as a cumulative knowledge assessment for the course.

should be 8-10 pages in length, double-spaced, and formatted in APA style. The Paper must include clearly identified sections, and include a title page, abstract, and reference page that includes a minimum of 6 references.

This paper is comprehensive and considered in the grading as the final exam for this class. I will use turnitin.com, a plagiarism detection tool, to scan for similarity. I consider anything over 50% on the similarity index, even if properly cited, to be gross and inappropriate citation. You will not receive more than 50/100 points, for a paper containing a similarity index of 50% or more, and may receive “0” points for this assignment, if not properly cited. If you are uncertain, ask for assistance. See also the APA Manual for formatting requirements.

The Policy Analysis Paper is due at 11:59 pm CT Thursday of Week 7. A rubric will be provided to students for grading expectations. The Policy Analysis Paper will be worth 100 points.

1

Identify a current or proposed state or national social welfare policy bill. Be specific; give name and number of the bill/proposed policy. Is this state or national level policy? If a state policy, what state?

Driver Education/Enforcement of the Law House Bill 21 DRH40015-MK-5A is titled Stop. This is a state law, not a federal one. North Carolina legislators were in charge of writing the legislation.

2. Briefly describe in your own words the intended goal or purpose of this policy?

To begin, I’d want to emphasize that this is my first opportunity to learn about this legislation, but I’m impressed by the stated goal. As a result, the purpose of this policy is to educate drivers on what to do if they are pulled over by cops. As a result, the proponents of the bill want the procedures to be included in the driver’s education textbook. Comment by Laura Parker: Omit all references to “I”. This is a research paper. Report what you find. Note, as a research paper, this paper is also not asking for your opinions, it is asking what others [key players] said about this bill.
In the final paper, the only place that I should find your opinion is in the final section of the paper – Questions for further thought.

3. When was the last action taken on this bill? Has it already passed both houses to become law?

The bill passed the Senate’s first and second readings on June 22, 2017, but it has yet to complete the third reading. It was passed by the House of Representatives on June 27th and signed by the governor the same day. The governor had signed the bill into law as of July 12, 2017, which was the most recent development. Comment by Laura Parker: Not all bills require a third reading. Are you saying that this is the day that the bill was passed in the Senate? It cannot move to the House or be signed by the Governor if it has not passed in the Senate. Comment by Laura Parker: So, this is the last action taken on the bill. It is not state law.

4. Who is/was the sponsor of this bill? Is the identified person affiliated with the Republican or Democratic party?

Republicans and Democrats have both signed on as co-sponsors of this bill, which has bipartisan support. More than a dozen people have agreed to sponsor the event: Allen McNeill, Beverly Earle, John Ager, Mary Belk, Cecil Brockman, Becky Carney, Debra Conrad, Rosa Gill, George Graham, and others. Comment by Laura Parker: Who is the primary sponsor? The sponsor of a bill is the individual who introduced the bill in Chamber.

5. Identify and briefly describe one Internet website that is useful for finding information related to your identified policy. Include the name of the site and a URL/address. Your chosen website should provide a direct link to the legislation you have identified. Examples for national level policy include the 

Library of Congress

 and 

govtrack.us

. State level legislation can generally be found on the 

state legislative home page

 of the particular state. Briefly describe some of the useful things that can be found on your chosen website as they relate to your identified legislation.

Wral is a brand-new news website that focuses on regional and state-level issues. More information on this law can be found by visiting this website’s “NCCaptol” page. http://www.wral.com/advice-on-howto-handle-traffic-stops-could-be-added-to-driver-s-ed/16489589/ This website’s section on the bill includes quotes from the measure’s primary sponsors, making it a great resource. This piece makes a compelling case for involving law enforcement agencies in the process of developing these orders. Comment by Laura Parker: Sounds like this site might have some interesting stuff on it, but the site you should be citing here is the North Carolina legislative home page. This is where you will find the sponsor, the dates you need, the text of the bill, actions taken, amendments, etc.

6. Identify and briefly describe one advocacy group with whom you could be involved if you were attempting to influence this legislation. Include the name of each group and a working web address for their organization. Does this group support or oppose the identified legislation?

People in the community are likely to accept this law if it means saving the life of an innocent driver and making these police officers feel less threatened. I haven’t found any information regarding who is pushing for this legislation. Comment by Laura Parker: Needs research. People in the Community is not an advocacy group unless they become incorporated and register as an advocacy group. Does N.C. have a chapter of Black Lives Matter? This is an advocacy group that might support this bill. If you can find hearings on the bill, you will be able to state facts. Hearings can generally be found on the state legislative webpage.

7. Identify one key player who supports this proposal. What arguments does he or she use to support the legislation? Include brief quotes with proper citations.

Rep. Rose Gill feels this is a fantastic idea in light of recent police killings during traffic encounters. People who are educated are less likely to be terrified or nervous when an officer pulls them over. Comment by Laura Parker: Good, legislators are appropriate here. However, you have not included a properly cited brief quote.

8. Identify one key player who opposes this proposal. What arguments does he or she use to oppose the legislation? Include brief quotes with proper citations.

The bill was unanimously approved by the members of the committee. So far, there has been no pushback to the law. After the bill passed the House, the governor signed it. It’s worth mentioning that three members were absent from the meeting on the day of the vote, but it’s unclear whether they would have voted for or against it. Comment by Laura Parker: The committee isn’t the only group that counts.
This legislation was voted on by the entire House and Senate. Your state homepage should have the votes. If someone actually made a statement in opposition, however, it is likely they would be called a racist. Therefore, finding a quote might be difficult. Needs more research. Wral might have something. Did you try searching the bill and adding the word opposition? Comment by Laura Parker: Yes
