Debate It!

Become a legislator, a governor, a president, or a judge. The legislature can change the language of laws. The executive office can accept or veto those changes. If a case is brought before the court, a judge can rule that a law is constitutional or unconstitutional. Read the law above and then become part of the three branches.

Executive Action

The amendment is still being debated under legislative action.

Check back to see whether the law goes to the executive office. Once a law passes in the legislative branch, the governor or president will have to choose whether to veto or accept the new law.

Judicial Action

A case has not yet been filed with the court. The court cannot rule on the constitutionality of a law until it is brought before the court.

Check back to see if a case has questioned the constitutionality of this law.
