State bar association to support constitutional convention

Sep 18, 2017 1:00 pm

The Associated Press is reporting the New York State Bar Association will begin a campaign this week to advocate in support of a constitutional convention. Voters decide November 7 whether to authorize a convention that could propose changes to the state Constitution. The bar association campaign will argue that a convention could lead to fewer barriers to voter participation and more protections for the rights of people statewide. Critics claim a convention would be a boondoggle to benefit corrupt Albany insiders. Among the groups opposing a convention are the New York State United Teachers and the New York Civil Liberties Union. Read the full story in the Daily Freeman.
