Abstract
LOREE BYKERK and ARDITH MANEY look at how consumer protection policy fared under the conservative congresses of recent decades. They argue that although the congressional forum open to consumer protection issues remained stable, consumer advocates and their allies were significantly more outnumbered by producer interests than they were before the Republican takeover of the House in 1995.
