Senators Cramer, Daines introduce constitutional amendment allowing Congress to ban flag desecration
On Flag Day, senators Kevin Cramer, R-N.D., and Steve Daines, D-Mont., introduced a constitutional amendment that would allow Congress to prohibit the desecration of the American flag.
In a press release Friday, Cramer said
In order for the constitution to be changed, each chamber of Congress would have to vote to call a constitutional convention and pass the measure with a two-thirds majority. After that step, three-fourths of the state legislatures would have to vote to approve the amendment.
The last time the constitution was changed was in 1992 with the 27th Amendment, dealing with congressional compensation.
