Democrats propose constitution rewrite

MONTGOMERY, AL (WBRC) - State Democrats are proposing a resolution to re-write the state constitution and put it to a statewide vote.

Some have tried to get a referendum before when they were the majority in the House, but they could never get it passed.

Alabama's constitution is 40 times longer than the U.S. Constitution and may be the longest governing document in the world. It was written in 1901.
