This chapter aims to explore the function of policy analysis in the Legislative Yuan and examine how the results of policy analysis affect law-making processes. Since the congress reform in 1999, the Organic Law and Statute Bureau and the Budget Center, were officially established in the Legislative Yuan to provide objective and neutral policy suggestions to legislators. Through an examination of the law-making process of the first and only pollution remediation law in Taiwan, the Soil and Groundwater Pollution Remediation Act of 2000, this chapter will address the extent to which policy analysis, in the Legislative Yuan, affects the law-making process and factors that influence the comparative significance among policy analysis units in the Legislative Yuan? This study finds that the advice offered by analysts in the Legislative Yuan was not taken seriously in the law-making process and, consequently, not adopted into law. This chapter concludes by summarizing that a lack of supporting conditions has made policy analysis less functional in the Legislative Yuan.
