The Alabama House of Representatives rejected a resolution last month that would have let voters decide in November whether to call a convention of delegates that could propose a new state constitution. The House voted 58-32 to kill the resolution by Rep. Demetrius Newton, D-Birmingham, that would have left the decision to a vote of the people in November. While I really believe this was a mistake, the special interests which oppose constitutional reform should be very happy. It doesn’t appear that our heavily-amended 1901 constitution will be reformed this year.
