Join the Federalist Society and Professor Tuan Samahon of Villanova Law for an interesting discussion of the 17th Amendment and its effect on our governmental structure. Can the political safeguard of federalism be restored? What role did the Seventeenth Amendment play in stripping the states of a seat at the national legislative table? This year marks the 100th anniversary of the 17th Amendment, which is an under-appreciated structural amendment to the Constitution that fundamentally altered the national/state federal balance. What benefits resulted, if any, from the direct election of U.S. senators? For more information contact email@example.com
