Legislative Branch Unit

Purpose: As we close our Legislative Branch Unit, this will serve as a test grade as well as a closing assessment.

Directions: You are to choose one piece of legislation that has historical significance, research who supported it and who opposed it along with their reasoning, and provide insight into how they either campaigned for or against it. You will also need to provide clear evidence as to whether you support the legislation or not, while also providing reasoning. This paper should be cited using proper MLA format.

Resources: Below are links to multiple different sources where you can get inspiration for your paper. These sources DO NOT provide argument based evidence that shows who was for or against the legislation.

Women’s Rights Affordable Care Act Kansas-Nebraska Act Homestead Act
