Advantage: The legislative has the powers to make and amend laws which can be used to change some of the laws that hinder development of the country or those that has been over passed by time.

In order to maintain the advantages or the strengths, the branch of the government can be empowered by the law by protecting the constitution and abiding by it.

To eradicate the weakness of the branch, the number should be reduced especially those that forms the committee.

Provide two credible sources in APA format to support your main points.

Radin, B. A. (2000). The Government Performance and Results Act and the tradition of federal management reform: square pegs in round holes? Journal of Public Administration Research and Theory, 10(1), 111-135.

Weaver, R. K., & Rockman, B. A. (Eds.). (1993). Do institutions matter? Government capabilities in the United States and abroad. Brookings Institution Press.

Briefly discuss how these sources support your main points.

(Use the space below to complete this section.)

Radin (2000) argues that the highest number of the legislative gives it much power to make amendments or change laws that do not support the development of the country. The house of representative forms the larger part of the congress which has almost all the powers to alter the situation in the country.

According to Weaver et al (1993), the high number of the congress makes it more difficult to make decisions especially at the emergency moments. The committee is formed by many people as a result of the high number of the members. The two houses; representative and the senate also may have class when making decisions out of disagreements.

Briefly evaluate your sources for bias, validity, and reliability.

(Use the space below to complete this section.)

Weaver et al (1993) in their article Do institutions matter? Government capabilities in the United States and abroad argue that the government institutions matters a lot when it comes to decision of the country. Most of these institutions require critical decision making which should be given serious thoughts. On the other hand, Radin (2000) further gives his opinion that the branches of the government should allowed to work as independent organizations without external influence. In is article, The Government Performance and Results Act and the tradition of federal management reform Radin argues that every branch of the government has a role to play and therefore, they should be allowed to perform their duties as expected.
