The 17th Amendment required the direct election of Senators. Join us for a blockbuster evening exploring the Founders’ vision for the Senate, the story of the 17th Amendment, the debate over whether the Amendment represents the death of federalism, and the debate over whether we should repeal the 17th Amendment today. A reception will follow the program.
