one way party leadership influences the legislative process is; if the speaker of the house (the leader) is a Democrat, then the views and decisions will be based on the views of democrats. for example if a bill was being passed about whether abortion should be illegal or legal and the party leader was Democratic, his/her views would want to make abortion legal because that is the view of democrats. but if he/she was a republican then they would vote for it to be illegal.
