United States Constitution
James Madison, Benjamin Franklin and colleagues spent almost four months debating, writing and editing the document that would become the U.S. Constitution. It took James Brownlee, Benjamin Parke and associates only 18 days to write Indiana’s.
The voters will not see the constitutional marriage amendment on the Indiana ballot until 2016, if ever.
Indiana Senate President David Long has invited legislators from every state to join him at Mount Vernon for a Pearl Harbor Day discussion of amending the U.S. Constitution.
