Alabama Governor’s plans for Constitutional

Alabama Governor’s plans for Constitutional Convention
Gov. Don Siegelman has outlined his plans for a citizens constitutional convention in which current legislators and lobbyists would have little or no say in the process.

GASP! The lobbyists and legislators were predictably upset.

The current Alabama state constitution is a nightmare. It has to be amended to allow routine changes in the law, for one thing. It’s a Jim Crow-era document, and large portions of it have been declared unconstitutional. The whole thing needs badly to be scrapped.

I’d love to see this happen. I’m sure anything too awful (ARTICLE XLII: The Earth is flat) will get struck down federally anyway.
