Contrary to the fear that legislative institutions are likely to inherit the potential for "endless cycling" inherent in a multidimensional policy space (see Riker 1980), the ideological power balance model suggests that changes in House rules follow a predictable and orderly pattern: As the floor median (measured along a single, ideological dimension) moves toward the majority party, rules changes in favor of that party are more likely; when the median moves away from the majority party, rules changes that favor the minority party are more likely.
The data analysis shows that the ideological power balance model fares quite well in explaining partisan rules changes.
By contrast, the ideological power balance model holds that the position of the median voter on the floor is critical.
As models 1 and 3 of Table 4 show, when only change in homogeneity and change in the median are included, there is no support for the party government interpretation in either period, whereas the ideological power balance model gains support both before and after 1933.
(5.) The ideological power balance model thus departs from Krehbiel by treating the allocation of agenda power to the majority party as a key variable that can affect policy outcomes.
Extending the ideological power balance model (and party-based models) to address nonpartisan rules changes would be a worthwhile next step.
(24.) The ideological power balance model assumes that a single ideological dimension is primary when it comes to partisan rules changes.
