The Ultimate Pocket Constitution

Here’s a good idea.

H.R. 2854 would require the Treasury Secretary to redesign the $1 bill, incorporating the preamble to the Constitution, a list of the articles of the Constitution, and a list describing the amendments to the Constitution.

Just this weekend, a friend of mine told me of a lunch she had with some important personages including some members of the federal judiciary. My friend was the only one who carries a copy of the Constitution.

I don’t think you could get the entire constitution onto the $1 bill, but some basic information about the Constitution could give everyone – including federal judges – some important signals about our government’s constitutional structure and the limits on governmental power that help make our country so strong, dynamic, and free.

Here’s the current vote on H.R. 2854. Click to vote, comment, learn more, or edit the wiki article about the bill.

us constitution

Johnn that makes a lot of sense. By changing our $1 bill it would cost more money and I think our country needs to focus on other items at hand. On the other side I agree that if we were able to put some parts of the constitution on the $1 dollar bill that it might remind our country of where we started from.
