Speaker Howell's Case for a Repeal Amendment
In yesterday's Wall Street Journal, Speaker William J. Howell and Georgetown University Law Professor Randy Barnett had an opinion piece published regarding ongoing efforts that they -- like so many others -- are advancing to reinvigorate the 10th Amendment and a constitutionally sound view of a limited federal government. This issue has broad-based and growing support that is not limited to any one individual, party or region of our country.
Yesterday's Speaker-Barnett op/ed offers a sensible, practical and constitutionally sanctioned way forward for those who believe in a federal government with enumerated and limited powers, with the rest reserved to the states and the sovereign people. It's also especially timely this fall given the ongoing national debate about what, if anything, can be done to rein in an out-of-control federal government.
