S. J. Res. 139 as reported

Document Viewer

The revised S. J. Res. 139 that was reported by the Subcommittee on Constitutional Amendments to the Judiciary Committee on May 27, 1964 and then on August 13 by the Judiciary Committee to the full Senate with unanimous support had stripped out that portion. On September 28 it was passed by voice vote, but John Stennis of Mississippi pointed out that only nine senators had been present for a vote that would amend the Constitution and asked for a reconsideration of the vote. On September 29 S. J. Res. 139 passed by a roll call vote of 65-0, but when Congress adjourned on October 3, no further action had been taken. It was thus in the 89th Congress that the final battles were to be waged.
