Constitutional Convention?

Premiere Date:Friday, April 27, 2007

College students want the Alabama Legislature to give citizens a chance to vote on whether a constitutional convention should be held for rewriting the Alabama Constitution. They plan on going to the statehouse to urge lawmakers to tackle the issue. Representative Demetrius Newton has a bill proposing a statewide vote on whether a constitutional convention should be held. The bill was passed out of committee and awaits action before the full House. Lenora Pate, Co-chair of Alabama Citizens for Constitutional Reform, Inc. will discuss the issue with and take call in questions. Bob Martin from the “Montgomery Independent,” Sebastian Kitchen from the “Press-Register,” and Dana Beyerle of the “New York Times Regional Newspapers” will be the three Alabama journalists talking about the events of the past week and talking with Pate about rewriting the Alabama Constitution.
