Write an essay (1,500-1,750 words) on special interest groups (SIG).
Develop an argument for creating an SIG for an issue which is important to you, or describe one to which you already belong.
Discuss the tactics and strategies your interest group would use (or uses) to help influence legislative outcomes and public opinion.
Briefly discuss the issues your SIG would address (or addresses). Are they local, state, or federal issues? Is your group advocating for or against these issues?
Do you see any “down side” to SIGs, or is it smart politics to be proactively engaged in the process?
Provide a minimum of three to five scholarly sources to support your analysis.
