Today is the 223rd anniversary of the signing of the United States Constitution.

Many headlines have been generated recently about proposals to change the Constitution. A lot of heat has been generated over the idea of changing the 14th amendment to alter birthright citizenship and even the futile notion to take voting power away from the people by changing the 17th amendment’s right to directly elect U.S. Senators.

What caught my eye was a proposal reported in yesterday’s Wall Street Journal’s opinion page that would create a "Repeal Amendment" in the constitution in which two-thirds of the states could vote to overturn an act of congress.

This proposal is akin to California’s nearly 100-year old referendum law, in which the people can overturn most legislative bills.

Georgetown University Law professor, Randy Bartlett, and the Speaker of the Virginia House of Delegates William Howell, wrote the piece. You can find it here. See what you think.
