Current efforts to amend the Constitution include the attempt to overturn the Citizens United decision of the U.S. Supreme Court, and Texas Gov. Greg Abbott’s proposal for a convention of the states to consider nine constitutional amendments “to rein in the federal government and restore the balance of power between the States and the United States.” University of Texas law professor Sanford Levinson will discuss the history of constitutional amendments.

The event is sponsored by Common Ground for Texans.
