Subject: Yale University Survey of State Legislators - Reminder
Date: Mon Jun 16 16:15:10 MDT 2014

Dear Senator Jenkins:
First, thank you to the state legislators who have taken our survey.  For those of you who haven't had a chance to do so yet, my name is Dan Butler and I am a professor of political science at Yale University. I am conducting research on how state legislators make policy decisions. As researchers we often try to make inferences about politics without hearing from the experts like yourself. The survey is designed to try to learn more about how legislators weigh different considerations when making decisions. This will greatly contribute to understanding how state legislative politics work and the relationship between legislators and their voters.
To take the confidential, 5-minute survey, please click the link below.
