State Lawmakers To Try The “Madison” Approach


After the failure of nullification last Friday in the Senate, Idaho is pushing for a new way to take on the federal government. As am idaho’s terry mason reports Lawmakers want a so-called “Madison Amendment”  added to the U.S. Constitution. According to supporters, It would allow two-thirds of states to call a constitutional convention where Congress would take up a specific amendment. Right now, states can already call for a convention, but not a specific amendment. They have never actually done this, for fear it would create a chaotic, runaway process where Congress could consider broadly overhauling the Republic’s founding document. Senator Curt McKenzie of Nampa thinks states like Idaho would gain another tool in keeping Washington, D.C. in check. On Monday, McKenzie’s non-binding resolution cleared the Senate State Affairs Committee and now will get a vote in the full Senate.
