dc.description.abstractWhat variables affect the way Texas State Representatives vote? Studies have shown that campaign contributions to members of the U.S. Congress do not necessarily affect the way they vote. This study examines whether this is also true for the Texas Legislature. I will look at the payday lender bill (HB2594, which will regulate the industry), where the payday lender industry has contributed more than $1 million dollars to Texas politicians and see if it affected the way Texas State Representatives voted. Then I will consider other variables such as the location of pay day lenders, and the ideology rating of State Representatives. These payday bills take place in the 82nd Texas Legislature, where the state representative is composed of 101 Republicans, and 49 Democrats.en_US
