In their Engage article, "Ramifications of Repealing the 17th Amendment," Professors Todd Zywicki and Ilya Somin of George Mason University School of Law debate whether repealing the 17th Amendment would restore the principles of federalism to the U.S. constitutional system by increasing state power. On this call, the authors will address the topic of this paper during a discussion of this just-released Engage article, which is available here.

After opening remarks, Professors Somin and Zywicki will take questions from callers.
