Abstract
  • The discretion-capacity framework is proposed to facilitate a macro-level view of state policy responses in a federalist system. The framework is employed to analyze the dynamics of two block grant programs--the State Children's Health Insurance Program (SCHIP) and Temporary Assistance for Needy Families (TANF). The analysis considers the role of federal parameters in delimiting state policy options, assesses variation in four states' responses over time and examines variation across the two block grant programs from 1996 through 2010.
