Gregory Watson talked about his role in getting the 27th Amendment to the Constitution ratified. The amendment deals with pay adjustments for members of Congress. In 1982, while a student at the University of Texas at Austin, Mr. Watson became interested in constitutional amendments that had passed Congress but had not passed enough state legislatures. He decided to write a paper on an amendment that prevents members on Congress from giving themselves raises during the current session. When his professor refused to change the “C” he received on his work, he decided to try to get the amendment ratified. close
