Constitutional Amendment Resolution Dies Quiet Death

A resolution introduced by Senate President Brandon Shaffer and House Speak Franker McNulty made its way quickly through both chambers but a minor provision related to changes to non-constitutional laws spelled doom for the measure. Members of both parties supported the most important concepts in the resolution, requiring signatures from each of the state’s congressional districts and a 60 percent voter approval for future amendments rather than a simple majority. One of the House co-sponsors said that although the measure enjoyed unusual bipartisan support, unions disliked it and asked Democrats, who are traditionally supportive of labor, to kill it. Note: CAR supported the resolution.
