Georgia Lawmakers Seek to End Senate Elections

A group of Republican state representatives in Georgia would like to repeal the 17th Amendment and return the election of U.S. Senators to the state legislatures, the Douglas County Sentinel reports.

The proposal requests that the U.S. Congress "begin action to repeal the 17th Amendment. The process would require a two-thirds approval by both the U.S. House and Senate, then ratification by at least three-quarters of the states. Political pundits give the move little chance of success."
