March 17, 1943

Legislation to Revise Constitution

Gov. Ellis Arnall signed a joint resolution of the General Assembly creating a commission to revise the Georgia Constitution of 1877. The resolution noted that the revision was necessary because the Constitution of 1877 had been adopted “while the fear of alien domination and control was still prevalent, since which time the conditions in the state have completely changed.”
