To the Honorable Scott K. Jenkins
My name is Ethan Porter and I am a researcher at the University of Chicago. About ten days ago we invited you to take a short survey about how state legislators make decisions. The survey is completely confidential and takes around three minutes to complete.

Would you be willing to participate? Your experience as a legislator in the UT State Senate would be very valuable. To take the survey,

If you have time for this survey that would be ideal; however, if you do not have time, we know that legislators in some states have staff members who could take it instead. To take the survey, please click the link below.

Take the Survey

The survey will take 3-4 minutes to complete.  All of your responses (as well as your decision to participate in this study) will be confidential. Only the researchers involved in this study and those responsible for research oversight will have access to the information you provide.
Participation in this study is completely voluntary.  You are free to decline to participate, to end participation at any time for any reason, or to refuse to answer any individual question.

Take the Survey

If you have further questions, you may contact me at or 773-844-5876.
If you would like to talk with someone other than the researchers to discuss problems or concerns, to discuss situations in the event that a member of the research team is not available, or to discuss your rights as a research participant, you may contact the Social & Behavioral Sciences Institutional Review Board, University of Chicago, 5835 South Kimbark - Judd 333, Chicago, IL, 60637, (773) 834-7835,

Clicking on the link to the survey represents your agreement to participate. It means you have read the information provided above and asked all the questions that you have at this time. By clicking you voluntarily agree to participate in this research study.
