The Convention's opening showcase panel, "Enumerated Powers, the Tenth Amendment, and Limited Government," just concluded. Prof. Randy Barnett, Hon. Ted Cruz, Prof. Michael Gerhardt, Prof. Michael Stokes Paulsen, and Prof. Mark Tushnet engaged in a lively discussion on the issue of the limits placed on the federal government's power.
The panel also discussed the Repeal Amendment that Prof. Barnett, along with William J. Howell, proposed in The Wall Street Journal in September. The amendment would authorize two-thirds of the states to overturn any federal law or regulation.
