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 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 hold office shall not be denied or abridged by the

United States or by any State on the account of race, color, nativity, sex, sexual or gender orientation, property, literacy  

test or religious belief or affiliation.

 

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 or 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 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 and referendum process.

 

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