Article I Section 2 of The Constitution is the focus of Episode 2 of The Constitution Line By Line with U.S. Senator Mike Lee. The Senator explains the qualifications of Members and the design of the U.S. House of Representatives as the most democratically responsive of our federal institutions. Short House terms and constant elections are highlighted, and the Senator reflects on the importance of the amendment process which later revoked the original language of Article I, Section 2, Clause 3.
The Article I Initiative remains dedicated to discussion and debate to better appreciate the role of Congress and its rightful place in the Constitutional order. To learn more about the Article I Initiative, visit fedsoc.org/articlei.
