I Want This Constitutional Amendment

Amendment 28 - Legislative Process for Voting Members, Legislative Congruity.

1. No member of Congress shall be allowed to cast their vote on any item of legislation without first providing a written declaration containing the following: an affirmation that the member has fully read and understands the final Bill; a statement explaining the member's reasons for voting either Yea to pass or Nay to oppose the Bill; and if the member would cast a Yea vote, an additional statement explaining the member's opinion of the legality of the legislation in terms of its accordance with the Constitution of the United States, including citation of the relevant parts of the Constitution which in the member's judgment explicitly permit and authorize the powers to be exercised by the legislation.

2. Congress shall make no law except as its legislation is accompanied by a written declaration from each voting member, as described in Section 1. Any legislation not so presented at the time of voting shall be considered void and inoperable.

3. No part or provision of any legislation, nor rider attached thereto, shall be incongruous with or in any material way diverge from the main subject matter as it is described in the official title of the legislation as introduced, or that part shall be considered void and inoperable.
