Proposed constitutional amendments


Here is a list of Constitutional Amendments that I support.  Some of these amendments I drafted myself and others were drafted by various groups/individuals.  Check out my list of proposed (by legislators) Federal/State Constitutional Amendments that I support.

The Equal rights amendment

Section1.  Equality of rights under the law shall not be denied or abridged by the United States or by any State on account of sex.

 

Section2. The Congress shall have the power to enforce, by appropriate legislation, the provisions of this article.

 

Section3. This amendment shall take effect two years after the date of ratification.

 

I support the ratification of the Equal Rights Amendment at the Federal and State level.

A fifteenth amendment for the 21st century

Section1.  The right of citizens of the United States to vote and seek elected office shall not be denied or abridged by the

United States or by any State on the account of race, color, nativity, creed, political belief, sex, sexual or gender identity, property, literacy test, poll tax, failure to pay any tax or fee or physical disability.

 

Section2.  The Congress shall have the power to enforce this article with appropriate legislation.

 

This is a proposed Constitutional Amendment that I drafted myself and hope to get Congressional sponsorship.  The amendment seeks to address the limitations of the 15th Amendment.

the political choice amendment

Section1.  Equality of rights under the law shall not be denied or abridged by the United States or by any State on the account of political belief, membership in a political party or lack of membership in a political party.

 

Section2.  The Congress shall have the power to enforce this article with appropriate legislation.

 

This is a proposed Constitutional Amendment that I drafted myself and hope to get Congressional sponsorship.  This amendment seeks to guarantee the right of political choice, which is not expressly protected in our Federal Constitution. 

the minnesota abortion amendment

Section1.   No law, regulation, activity or program concerning abortion shall be enacted or enforced by the State of Minnesota, or any of its political subdivisions, except a law, regulation, activity or program that is approved by a majority of the qualified voters in a statewide initiative process.

 

Section2.  The State of Minnesota shall create a statewide Initiative process for deciding all abortion laws, regulations, activities and programs.  This Initiative process shall not be used on matters unrelated to abortion.

 

Section3.  This article shall take effect three years from the date of its ratification.

 

This is a proposed Minnesota Constitutional Amendment that I proposed as a means of rethinking how abortion law is made.
