Constitution change urged
By James G. Lakely
THE WASHINGTON TIMES
A bipartisan commission yesterday recommended an amendment to the U.S. Constitution that would ensure the continuity of government in the event of
a catastrophic terrorist attack on the capital.
That idea, however, has run into immediate opposition on Capitol Hill.
Rep. David Dreier, California Republican and chairman of the House Rules Committee, opposes amending the Constitution to allow temporary
appointments to Congress in the event a majority of House members are killed or incapacitated.
