Each of the assignments in the course builds on one another. The public policy topic chosen in this assignment will be the same one you use for the rest of your assignments.
The purpose of this first assignment is to introduce you to a particular policy issue that has been discussed in two presidential administrations, when the policy began, its impact over various sectors, and its effectiveness over time.
Pick one federal policy that was discussed over a span of two different administrations. For example, health care policies under Presidents Clinton and Obama, or foreign policy under Presidents George H. W. Bush and George W. Bush.
