States Can Spur Congressional Reform Sans Amendment

Assistant Opinion Editor Patrick Healy sets out a state-centered plan to help third parties and fix Congress in the process. “Support for reform measures such as capped campaign contributions and term limits is high, but many of these issues can’t be solved with piecemeal legislation requiring improbable constitutional amendments. Instead, structural issues like dark money, two-party control of government, and even gerrymandering can be decreased with electoral reform passed by state legislatures.”
