Dr. Gleason is Assistant Professor in the ISU Political Science Department, where he teaches courses in Constitutional Law. He will discuss how the amendment process works, covering a history of successful and unsuccessful campaigns to amend. Efforts proposing a balanced budget amendment or an amendment to overturn the Supreme Court's Citizens United decision have kept the amendment process in the news lately.

The League of Women Voters of the US is studying the amendment process. On November 17 Pocatello League members will reach consensus on guidelines for evaluating amendment proposals and will decide under what conditions the League would support the calling of a Constitutional Convention.

The public is invited to attend to learn about amending the Constitution. For more information, contact Pocatello League President, Pam Ward at 237-6535 or
