This research updates research done in 1972 on representational roles in the Nebraska Legislature. This research also examines one aspect of legislative decision-making based on previous studies regarding sources of cues used by legislators when deciding how to vote on bills. A survey of incumbent Nebraska Legislators reveals changes since 1972 in the predominant representational role orientation chosen by senators. They survey also sheds light on the sources of cues most relevant to these legislators and how cue-taking relates to representational roles.
