Domestic Public Policy

Laboratories of Democracy: Texas vs. California and the Future of America

Grant Year: 2017


Kenneth Miller will research and write a book examining the divergent policy paths taken by California and Texas in recent years and exploring how other states can learn from those experiences. He will examine state documents, including budgets, and undertake interviews with officials and experts to track the evolution of public policies in both states, assess how the state’s political cultures and institutions shaped their evolutions, and consider what lessons can be drawn for state-level policy more generally.
