Book on Pennsylvania Politics and Policy

CSF Fellow J. Wesley Leckrone and Michelle J. Atherton have edited Pennsylvania Politics and Policy: A Commonwealth Reader (Philadelphia: Temple University Press, 2018). The book offers an evidence-based exploration by more than a dozen contributors of significant policy issues in Pennsylvania, including the interaction of state policy and federal laws such as the Affordable Care Act and the Family and Medical Leave Act. The book also explores federalism at the state and local levels, such as what student-based allocation might mean for Pennsylvania’s school districts. Read more here.
