Please note that the content of this book primarily consists of articles available from Wikipedia or other free sources online. A sponsor, in the United States Congress, is a senator or representative who introduces a bill or amendment and is its chief advocate. Committees are occasionally identified as sponsors of legislation as well. A sponsor is also sometimes called a "primary sponsor." It should not be assumed that a bill's sponsor actually drafted it. The bill may have been drafted by a staff member, by an interest group, or by others. In the Senate, multiple sponsorship of a bill is permitted.

This work examines proposed amendments to the U.S. Constitution designed to reduce the powers of the federal judiciary that were formally introduced into Congress between 1789 and 1865. The text and sponsor of each amendment proposal is presented and analyzed in terms of probable motivations of the sponsor as well as votes for and against with regard to Supreme Court decisions and public policy issues of the day. The subject matter of each proposed amendment is divided into chapters examining such issues as curtailment of jurisdiction, term and age limits for federal judges, the creation of a new tribunal to resolve issues of federalism, and miscellaneous issues such as salaries, composition of the Supreme Court, and prohibitions upon extra-judicial assignments for federal judges. The book exposes efforts by individual members of Congress to utilize the constitutional amendment process to effect permanent changes to the federal judiciary during vitally important formative periods of American government. Important aspects of the inter-institutional dynamics between the legislative and judicial branches of American government are demonstrated.

Democratic Delusions

It is becoming common in many states: citizens seizing the opportunity to reclaim government from politicians by signing a petition to put an initiative on the ballot and then voting on it. During the past decade alone, Americans voted on nearly 500 statewide initiatives. Particularly in the West, direct legislation increasingly defines and dominates the political agenda. Although this may appear to be democracy in action, Richard Ellis warns us that the initiative process may be putting democracy at risk. In Democratic Delusions he offers a critical analysis of the statewide initiative process in the United States, challenging readers to look beyond populist rhetoric and face political reality. Through engaging prose and illuminating anecdotes, Ellis shows readers the 'dark side' of direct democracy -- specifically the undemocratic consequences that result from relying too heavily on the initiative process. He provides historical context to the development of initiatives -- from their Populist and Progressive roots to their accelerated use in recent decades -- and a comparative context in which to understand the variations among states in their initiative processes. While acknowledging the positive contribution of initiatives, Ellis shows that there are reasons to use them carefully and sparingly: ill-considered initiatives can subvert legislative checks and balances, undermine the deliberative process, and threaten the rights of minority groups. Today's initiative process, Ellis cautions, is dominated not by ordinary citizens but by politicians, perennial activists, wealthy interests, and well-oiled initiative machines. The importance of ballot titles in shaping the electoraloutcome means that initiative elections often tell us more about the values of those who sponsor and frame initiatives than it does about the citizens who vote on them. The crown-ing irony, Ellis finds, is that because initiatives are so often challenged in court, both before
